So let’s say next week is the WWE Draft. And unlike the last lotteries, this is a full, 100 per cent draft.
So let’s make it clear. Everyone is a free agent. Top 10 picks get 104 week contracts. Next 10 get 52 week contracts. Next 30 picks get 26 week contracts. Everyone else is delegated to NXT.
The GM for RAW is John Laurinaitis. The GM for Smackdown is William Regal. The GM of NXT is Matt Striker.
Johnny Ace selected Michael Cole and Jerry Lawler for his broadcast team, while Smackdown will feature Josh Matthews and Booker T. Referees have now been separated for Raw and Smackdown.
The rules are set that if you select the WWE Champion, you cannot draft the World Heavyweight Champion. If you select the Intercontinental Champion, you cannot select the United States Champion. If Tag Champs are selected separately, the belts are no longer unified and the separate Champions can select new partners. Whichever brand does not select the Divas Champion must create a new division.
It is decided the picks will snake. Raw gets first overall pick but Smackdown gets 10th Overall and 11th Overall.
First Overall: Sheamus (World Heavyweight Champion)
Second Overall: CM Punk (WWE Champion)
Third Overall: John Cena
Fourth Overall: Daniel Bryan
Fifth Overall: Randy Orton
Sixth Overall: Rey Mysterio
Seventh Overall: The Miz
