WWE Draft 2019 Results of Trades Between Raw & SmackDown Rosters

Posted by Anthony Mango Friday, October 11, 2019
The Superstar Shake-up happened earlier this year after WrestleMania, but the Wild Card rule invalidated that. Now, with Monday Night Raw on USA and Friday Night SmackDown on Fox, the WWE Draft is returning to split the rosters and trade a variety of superstars between the brands.

The 2019 WWE Draft will be taking place over a two-night process, starting with SmackDown (October 11) and ending on Raw (October 14).

Stay tuned as we will be updating you with the results throughout both nights so you can find all of the trades in one convenient location! Keep refreshing for updates!

NIGHT 1 MAIN DRAFT RESULTS

RAW DRAFTS: Becky Lynch
- Duh. She's the biggest focal point in the company right now, for the most part, and holds a Raw title.

SMACKDOWN DRAFTS: Roman Reigns
- I imagined he'd be one of the first.

RAW DRAFTS: The O.C.
- I guess this means Shinsuke Nakamura is staying on SmackDown as the intercontinental title has to be on the blue brand.

SMACKDOWN DRAFTS: Bray Wyatt
- Fox must have really been adamant about this. Not sure if I love it or not, depending on who else he has to feud with.

RAW DRAFTS: Drew McIntyre
- Hm....we'll see.

RAW DRAFTS: Randy Orton
- This may work out really well. We'll see.

SMACKDOWN DRAFTS: Sasha Banks
- I figured this might happen. Banks/Flair and Lynch/Bayley need to be on those brands together to switch it up. Plus, Banks now has blue hair, sooo...

RAW DRAFTS: Ricochet
- This all depends on how the rest of the midcard plays out.

SMACKDOWN DRAFTS: Braun Strowman
- This could be GREAT...or it could be awful...

RAW DRAFTS: Bobby Lashley
- No immediate thoughts. I guess Rusev is going to Raw, though.

RAW DRAFTS: Alexa Bliss
- Bliss and Cross split up?

SMACKDOWN DRAFTS: Lacey Evans
- At least she's not on the same brand as Becky.

RAW DRAFTS: Kevin Owens
- Hm...

SMACKDOWN DRAFTS: The Revival
- Duh. This was necessary.

RAW DRAFTS: Natalya
- There goes the feud with Sasha Banks, right?

RAW DRAFTS: The Viking Raiders (Erik and Ivar)
- They're fighting for the Raw tag titles next week. This felt like a necessity. It also makes me think they're winning the belts.

SMACKDOWN DRAFTS: Lucha House Party (Kalisto, Gran Metalik and Lince Dorado)
- We'll see how many months from now those three are still on the roster, with Kalisto and Metalik talking about wanting to leave.

RAW DRAFTS: Nikki Cross
- So why did Fox draft Bliss and Cross separately? Why did they waste a pick when they could have gotten them together?

SMACKDOWN DRAFTS: Heavy Machinery (Otis and Tucker)
- They're comin'!

RAW DRAFTS: The Street Profits
- We all knew this had to happen.

NIGHT 1 FREE AGENTS

Sunday morning (11am) the following additional picks were announced:

SMACKDOWN DRAFTS: Apollo Crews
- No change.

SMACKDOWN DRAFTS: Drew Gulak
- There goes the whole 205 Live and NXT experience for him.

RAW DRAFTS: EC3
- No change.

RAW DRAFTS: Eric Young
- No change.

SMACKDOWN DRAFTS: Heath Slater
- Meh, no matter.

RAW DRAFTS: Sin Cara
- At least SmackDown doesn't have ALL the luchadors now.

SMACKDOWN DRAFTS: Tamina
- Meh, no matter.

SMACKDOWN DRAFTS: The B-Team
- No change.

NIGHT 2 MAIN DRAFT RESULTS

Tune in during Monday Night Raw for the next set of draft picks.

RAW DRAFTS: Seth Rollins
- Necessary. He's got the red belt.

SMACKDOWN DRAFTS: Brock Lesnar
- Saw this one coming, too.

RAW DRAFTS: Charlotte Flair
- Son of a bitch. We're getting Flair vs. Lynch a million more times....ugh. This also means Andrade, Zelina and Aleister Black are going to Raw.

SMACKDOWN DRAFTS: The New Day
- The more things change, the more things stay the same.

RAW DRAFTS: Andrade and Zelina Vega
- Told ya. Just wait, Aleister Black is coming, too.

RAW DRAFTS: The Kabuki Warriors
- And two more women go to Raw, leaving virtually nobody on SmackDown. Yeeeesh.

SMACKDOWN DRAFTS: Daniel Bryan
- No surprises.

RAW DRAFTS: Rusev
- Saw that coming with the Lashley pick on Friday.

SMACKDOWN DRAFTS: Bayley
- It took this long for SmackDown to pick a SmackDown champion?

RAW DRAFTS: Aleister Black
- Told ya.

RAW DRAFTS: Cedric Alexander
- Duh. Paul Heyman's a fan.

SMACKDOWN DRAFTS: Shinsuke Nakamura and Sami Zayn
- Duh.

RAW DRAFTS: Humberto Carrillo
- Yeah, that'll work out well.

SMACKDOWN DRAFTS: Ali
- That balances out Cedric Alexander.

RAW DRAFTS: Erick Rowan
- Not Luke Harper, too. Interesting.

RAW DRAFTS: Buddy Murphy
- Interesting. This could be good.

SMACKDOWN DRAFTS: Dolph Ziggler and Robert Roode
- Ha. Title change.

RAW DRAFTS: Jinder Mahal
- We'll see...

SMACKDOWN DRAFTS: Carmella
- They needed her. The blue brand has no babyface women.

RAW DRAFTS: R-Truth
- Wow, they're splitting up Truth and Carmella? Why?

RAW DRAFTS: Samoa Joe
- With him being a Heyman guy, this makes sense.

SMACKDOWN DRAFTS: The Miz
- Wow...really? That makes no sense. Why are they putting the guy with a USA network show on Fox? Why is Fox okay with that? I know why USA is, but it seems stupid to agree to have a guy promote a rival network's programming on your show. Weird.

RAW DRAFTS: Akira Tozawa
- I'd love to have some kind of hope that Tozawa will make something of himself on Raw, but I think this is just a steal from 205 Live.

SMACKDOWN DRAFTS: King Corbin
- At least he's not on the same brand as Rollins anymore.

RAW DRAFTS: Shelton Benjamin
- Meh. I like him. Nobody else seems to.

RAW DRAFTS: Rey Mysterio
- I feel like this will be a mistake.

SMACKDOWN DRAFTS: Shorty Gable
- Whatever.

RAW DRAFTS: Titus O'Neil
- That'll matter.

SMACKDOWN DRAFTS: Elias
- Stupid decision. He works better on Raw. This is going to be a mistake.

RAW DRAFTS: Liv Morgan
- Really? She couldn't go to SmackDown, either?

BLOCKBUSTER TRADE ON WWE BACKSTAGE

Alexa Bliss and Nikki Cross were traded to SmackDown in exchange for "future draft consideration" for Raw...whatever b.s. that means. I'll be honest, this was not the right move in my mind that they needed to do, nor do I think this was a "blockbuster" trade like they advertised.

FREE AGENT PICKS REVEALED ON WWE THE BUMP

RAW DRAFTS: No Way Jose, Mojo Rawley, Curt Hawkins & Zack Ryder, The IIconics and Sarah Logan
- Everyone stays the same except Billie Kay and Peyton Royce. No big shocks. I guess they moved The IIconics to balance out Bliss and Cross (even though one team is heel and one team is babyface).

SMACKDOWN DRAFTS: Luke Harper, Cesaro, Drake Maverick, Fire & Desire and Dana Brooke
- Maverick and EC3 were split up? Why? Just to get him on the same night as 205 Live even though he doesn't need to be a general manager anymore if it is underneath the NXT brand?
- Harper is a nothing pick if he's leaving and they have no plans for him.
- Cesaro could do wonders on SmackDown. That's great.
- Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville, thumbs up.
- Dana Brooke could use a change of pace. This might work out well for her.

RANDOM DRAFT PICK ON 10/17

AOP (Akam and Rezar) are officially part of the Raw roster.

REMAINING FREE AGENTS

The Ascension (Konnor and Viktor)Big Show
The Colons (Epico and Primo)
Ember Moon
The Hardy Boyz (Jeff Hardy and Matt Hardy)
Lars Sullivan
Mickie James
Naomi
Nia Jax
Ruby Riott
