The WWE Draft, that will be held over two days, began with SmackDown on Friday, October 11 and is slated to continue on Monday Night Raw on October 14. With the first round of the draft being completed, there have been some major changes, which includes Roman Reigns moving to SmackDown.

This follows after a Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns match was scheduled on the new Friday Night SmackDown to determine which brand will get to pick the first superstar. The match saw Rollins defeat Reigns via disqualification, when The Fiend Bray Wyatt interfered, enabling USA Network to make the first pick, and it was none other than Raw Women's Champion Becky Lynch. As a result, Reigns went over to SmackDown. The evening also saw The OC stable that includes AJ Styles and Good Brothers to be drafted to Raw. The red brand also managed to get Drew McIntyre, who was earlier with SmackDown. Veteran wrestler Randy Orton too was drafted back to Raw.
