WWE releases rules for upcoming draft

by Jeremy Karp

In two days, history will be made (once again) as WWE will go through a brand split where their two shows, “WWE Monday Night RAW” and “WWE Smackdown” will have their own separate rosters.

Also on Tuesday, “WWE Smackdown” will go live for the first time on a weekly basis.

On Sunday, WWE released the official rules regarding the draft. in which Stephanie McMahon (RAW) and Shane McMahon (Smackdown) will make their picks to form the rosters of their respective shows.

The rules go as follows:

  • Raw has the first overall pick
  • Since SmackDown Live is a two-hour show and Raw is three hours, for every two picks SmackDown Live receives, Raw will receive three picks
  • Tag teams count as one pick unless a Commissioner/General Manager specifically only wants one member of the team
  • Six draft picks will be made off the NXT roster
