Initially, this year's draft was supposed to take place at the end of August this year instead of in October like we've seen since Smackdown moved to Fox in 2019. That was until last week when the change was announced that the draft was back to happening in October according to Andrew Zarain from the Mat Men. Now we do have a bit more time though to talk about the amount of changes that should take place at the draft. The WWE has been struggling in the last year, it just seems like they have lost themselves and any possible direction or sense of purpose.
This isn't going to be as detailed as the Andrade story I wrote a few months ago, but it will be interesting. At Money in the Bank, Big E finally won the briefcase to have the chance to become the next WWE or Universal Champion. If it was up to me, Lashley is feuding with the New Day or just finished feuding with New Day, and it would be the perfect time to slide Big E into the rivalry. However, you need to stack the odds and toss in some in doubt. Big E won the Intercontinental without the New Day, and the case without the New Day let MVP do what he does and cast some doubt on the match happening to make the eventual match all the more satisfying. By Survivor Series, it would be strange to see Big E not holding the WWE Championship.
The WWE Raw Tag Team Champions have been lacking for years. Since AJ Styles and Omos won the tag titles, there have been at least some form of direction for the gold, which is a pleasant sight. However, there needs to be something big planned to change the perception of the titles. Right now, there is unfinished business between Riddle and AJ Styles, who had a show stealing match leading into Money in the Bank last month. Orton still being AWOL currently leaves Riddle alone against the tag champions. After defeating the Viking Raiders at Money in the Bank, we can probably see one more match for the belts before they move to RK-Bro. Imagine this image AJ ripping apart Orton for abandoning Riddle and leaving his partner, because if there is anyone who can get under the skin of Orton it's his former rival AJ Styles. Riddle has been the highlight of Raw in recent months and I would like to think that he didn't get rewarded with Money in the Bank due to a logical step for a feud with the tag champions.
More detailed thoughts on feuds will be coming together as I will be putting together a make shift card for Summerslam with matches I believe should be included on the event. Excluding those that have already been announced for the event, like Goldberg vs Bobby Lashley and Roman Reigns vs John Cena. Goldberg isn't my favorite and his aura is wearing on me, but if he still moves the needle that is what matters most.
