WWE CONFIRM SASHA BANKS INJURY AND REMOVE HER FROM THIS EVENING’S RAW

The winner of the match will decide which brand goes first in the draft, if Becky wins then RAW gets the first pick, if Charlotte wins then SmackDown gets to go first.

WWE ANNOUNCE CESARO VS MANSOOR JEWEL

WWE has announced that Cesaro and Mansoor will meet again inside the squared circle. In what WWE is presenting as a rematch from Greatest Royal Rumble, Cesaro will be looking to bring their personal tally to one apiece.

WWE REPORTIDY AIMING TO SHAKE THINGS UP WITH THE FINAL NIGHT OF THE DRAFT

WWE is planning some form of ‘blockbuster trade’ on this evenings episode of RAW according to @wrestlevotes.

Many sources have said that WWE wanted to really push this year’s draft. With Paul Heyman and Eric Bischoff among many brought into key creative roles, many expected the draft to be the true relaunch, after the recent premiere episodes of the different brands.

Last week the draft list was accidentally published on the WWE website ahead of SmackDown. Dave Meltzer commented on Wrestling Observer Radio that the list was given to the website team and they were told to upload it in alphabetical order. Unfortunately, for whatever reason, the list was uploaded as it was. This apparently infuriated WWE top brass.

On the 12th of October, FOX Sports released a video with Jay Glazer. In the video Jay talk about a ‘Blockbuster trade’.

“If one brand misses out on a must-have Superstar early, it doesn’t mean they can’t land them much later. There’s also some ineligible guys on the injury list, guys like Elias and Samoa Joe. Another big thing here is that there’s a huge emphasis on the women’s division, it’s just stacked. Stars like Becky Lynch, Charlotte Flair, Sasha Banks, my pick, Sonya Deville.”
