WWE SmackDown: New-look Bayley regains title and turns to dark side

Seth Rollins And Roman Reigns To Face Off On WWE SmackDown For First Draft Pick, Other Draft Notes

WWE Draft Details, Opening Match Revealed Ahead Of Two-Night Special

Raw superstar and Universal champion Seth Rollins takes on SmackDown's Roman Reigns, in a match where the victor earns the first overall draft choice for their brand. "That would've been really bad if we were drafted to different brands".

It was a glaring mistake by WWE, and one they seemingly struggled to remedy.

Often, going into the annual draft of talent, rules are murky at best, or, non-existent.

This comes after it was revealed that Lynch is staying on Raw and Banks going to SmackDown as part of the first night of the draft.

WWE official reportedly consulted with both FOX and US to make sure each side was happy with the Superstars that they ended up with, according to PWInsider. The following superstars are now shown as eligible for Raw, unless WWE changes their pool again.

But Bayley grabbed a handful of hair and rolled the champion up for a three-count to end her 10th title reign and crown herself as the new queen of SmackDown. "This could change but the whole draft is already done".

According to the WWE press release, superstars from both the red and blue brands will appear along with the personalities from FOX and NBCUniversal, who will announce select picks from each brand. In order to earn that pick, Becky Lynch will have to defeat Sasha Banks at the beginning of the night.

Bayley displayed a new vicious edge prior to her SmackDown title match against Charlotte Flair - and it paid off.

It's highly unlikely that WWE continues to follow that exact pattern, but it's worth mentioning just in case they do.
