I was gonna say, I know he's injured (I guess that makes him the only injured guy on the whole roster now? What a turn of events from a few months ago) but thought he'd still be included somehow. It does make sense not to include him I suppose. Looks like he's still a couple of months away from returning.

Then starting with 11 repeat the format.
I see...

1.Rollins-Raw
2.Ambrose-Smackdown
3.Cena-Smackdown
4.Reigns-Raw
5.Orton-Raw
6.AJ Styles-Smackdown
7.Brock Lesnar-Raw
8.Kevin Owens-Raw
9.Bray Wyatt-Smackdown
10.Sami Zayn-Raw
11.Chris Jericho-Smackdown
12.Rusev-Smackdown
13.Miz-Raw
14.Cesaro-Raw

I think even if Ambrose is champ on the draft. Stephanie will pick Rollins believing he will win the title at Battleground.

Logically it would be

Balor
American Alpha
Bayley
Joe
Asuka
Aries

I see Nakamura staying and Aries being the call up since he hasn't been well received in NXT by their folks watching in Full Sail. He could make a midcard hand in WWE on the main roster. Alexa and Carmella take over as the top female acts for NXT most likely. Roode, Ibushi, Tajiri, Rhyno, Kendrick, and more CWC build thigns up in NXT.

And Raw getting more picks doesn't really matter when you can make SD pick more teams or groups. Say they pick the Wyatt Family or New Day, they get 3 people at a time

I recall weekly Austin Aries chants. I recall the crowd having a great time when he was dancing with No Way Jose and then laying him out on the announce table.

Aries is really liked by the NXT fans.

To be honest, they haven't appreciated him nearly as much as they should. That said, up until his match with Nak, he hasn't really showed his potential.

Shit you're right. Either way it's way more guys from NXT getting called up than I thought there would be.

Meh, not really feeling those rules tbh. Not a fan of Raw still being 3 hours while Smackdown remains 2. I get why they're doing it financially, but it sends a bad message imo. Makes me think the Smackdown going live move was USA's but the brand extension was WWE's idea. Despite that, Smackdown will be the better show. One less hour, no Stephanie and Shane there it already has a good head start.

WWE.COM: Official WWE Draft Rules

I'm not sure why Ambrose is eligible considering at the moment there is only one champion and he will have to defend on both shows.

Also don't see why they have been hyping "TAG TEAMS COULD BE SPLIT UP MAGGLE" and then introduced a rule where tag teams are considered one draft pick each unless the GM specifies different. What possible reason could a GM have for saying "you know, I actually want to waste this pick by only receiving one superstar instead of two like I'm entitled to."

If Finn gets called up as a draft pick it will be a waste, his debut needs to be a surprise in front of a smark heavy crowd in full demon makeup.

Why would he defend on both shows? Smackdown and Raw will have their own belts.
