The most anticipated month in modern wrestling with the debut of All Elite Wrestling, debut of Smackdown on Fox, and the WWE draft. For the first time the draft was presented in a way similar to sports drafts. The picks were announced by Stephanie & Triple H, but didn't really do much to boost more interest to the way they had presented the draft in the past. I feel like they could've brought back the old way of drafting similarly to the way they use to draw entrants in the Rumble and how they did the draft in 2004 with Paul Heyman and Eric Bischoff. I know it was there first time and mistakes were bound to happen, but hopefully it's a learning experience.
Looking at the rosters they need to reset the meaning of brand exclusivity and keep the brands apart for the time being. It is clear that they are trying to change the images of both brands with the Smackdown roster having a lot more entertainers and less skilled in ring wrestlers and Raw being the opposite. With Fox wanting the brand to be presented in a certain way that explains the moves, but how WWE books it will determine if it fits together.
It is questionable why Raw has such a small tag team division with only three teams included in the title picture. Looking at it the opposite way though Raw has a deeper Women's division excluding the Kabuki Warriors who should still be able to appear on both brands as Women's Tag champions. Some of the un-drafted talent also leaves hope that previously underutilized talent can get a little bit more of the spotlight. As far as the unlisted draft picks I didn't even know that The Colons were still members of WWE shows how long they've been gone.
