It had been in the air for months now, the announcement that the WWE should have made but that instead came only unofficially from various websites linked to the McMahon company, but from tonight instead, more precisely from the last episode of Monday Night Raw aired on USA Network, we know when WWE will air its annual Draft that WWE Universe fans have been waiting for.
The first to give some clues as to when the famous roster change could have taken place for some WWE wrestlers was Andrew Zarian, a well-known journalist of the Mat Men Pro Wrestling podcast, who had moved closer and closer to the date finally indicated by the WWE, but he had done so well in advance, several weeks ago.
If the draft was originally scheduled for the end of October, the idea would now have been anticipated quite noticeably, with the beginning of next month turning out to be perfect for WWE.
Latest update on the 2021 WWE Draft
As with every edition of the WWE Draft, there will be some major names switching brands to create new rivalries.
This year, likely options include Bobby Lashley moving to SmackDown to start a dream feud with Brock Lesnar and Big E to potentially reunite with his New Day teammates, Xavier Woods and Kofi Kingston. The current Money In The Bank briefcase holder is present on this week's Monday Night RAW and has promised to cash in tonight.
Thanks to an advertisement that aired on American TVs during this night's Monday Night Raw live broadcast, WWE Universe fans learned that in the next episodes of Friday Night Smackdown and Monday Night Raw on October 1st and 4 of the same month, the long-awaited WWE Draft will be broadcast, which will then start on Friday with Smackdown and will then end after three days with Raw.
At the moment no other elements or clues have been promulgated by the WWE regarding this choice. Recall that one of the first suspects to be able to change roster is Drew McIntyre, although for him there are only generic clues and nothing confirmed by the internal sources of the McMahon company.
Now it is therefore official, there are only a little more than two weeks left for the Draft of the year, which will definitely change the fate of the two main rosters of the company, especially after the sensational victory in the main event of this night on Monday Night Raw.
