Like every year, the time comes that the WWE has to make some very important changes, to give a shock to the activities of the main roster. We are talking about the famous WWE Draft. For several years, in fact, WWE has been helping itself with the famous Draft, that is, with that process with which it goes to shuffle the cards, moving the athletes from one roster to another, thus starting new feuds and new storylines.
This year the dates on which WWE will carry out these changes seem to have emerged very early, but for the moment these dates are not confirmed by the internal environments of the company, even if according to the well-known overseas journalist, Andrew Zarian, they would be those on August 30th and September 3rd, that is an episode of Monday Night Raw and one of Friday Night Smackdown.
The date for the 2021 WWE Draft has been revealed
Apparently, according to what was reported in the last hours by the well-known journalists of the PW Insider, the WWE would have already staged several steps from NXT to the main roster, to ensure that this year the Draft is more conspicuous and important than usual.
In recent weeks we have already seen the arrival in the main roster of athletes such as Mansoor or Piper Niven, respectively called by NXT and NXT UK, but also this week, we have seen Karrion Kross and Bronson Reed take part in Smackdown, even if in a match not filmed by cameras.
All of this will serve WWE to move even more people with the Draft, thus creating important post-Summerslam storylines. As reported by the pages of PW Insider, in fact: "One of the reasons that the talents have been brought to the main roster (and others will be called in the coming weeks) is that WWE has its Draft scheduled for September and is looking for different talents to be able to fill the roster from NXT, accentuating the main roster, so it will be ready to shuffle the cards at the entrance of autumn.
Apparently, Summerslam will be a real starting point for the WWE, which expects a lot from the summer Big Four and at this point, even the members of the WWE Universe expect a lot from WWE, after all these rumors and these promises.
In the past, WWE also introduced the Wild Card Rule, which allowed a selected number of stars to show up on the opposite brand. The WWE Draft refreshes the roster and makes way for new feuds and storylines to form between the stars.
Due to the recent budget cuts, many WWE Superstars were released from their contracts. It will be interesting to see how things pan out in the Draft following the releases. With the huge drop in ratings, the numbers could see an increase for both RAW and SmackDown.
