WWE Draft 2021: Mark your calendars. October 1 and October 4 are the official dates announced for WWE Draft that will see superstars switching brands for good. The annual WWE Draft has a reputation of shaking up things across the rosters, and this year won’t be different. In this post, we have compiled a list of superstars who could switch brands in the upcoming WWE Draft 2021. So without any further ado, let us plunge in.
WWE Draft 2021: From Drew McIntyre to Cesaro, 5 Superstars who could switch brands in the upcoming WWE Draft 2021
WWE Draft 2021: Brock Lesnar
During last week’s Smackdown, Kayla Braxton, while interviewing Paul Heyman revealed that as per her “sources,” Brock Lesnar may be heading to Monday Night Raw in the upcoming draft. If there is anything to take away from what Kayla said, this could well be a major spoiler.
The Beast Incarnate heading to Monday Night Raw could open the door of opportunity for a possible dream bout between Brock Lesnar and Bobby Lashley. It is a Wrestlemania kind of match, and we might see these two gigantic figures ripping each other apart at some stage before or at Wrestlemania 38.
Besides Bobby Lashley, we could see Brock Lesnar feuding with the Apex Predator Randy Orton, who has some unfinished business with the Beast Incarnate and this could be a golden opportunity for Randy to get his hands on his former foe.
WWE Draft 2021: Drew McIntyre
Another major name that might switch brands is the former WWE Champion Drew McIntyre. The Scottish Warrior is seemingly done with storylines on Monday Night Raw and could be heading to Friday Night Smackdown to explore contemporary opportunities.
WWE may have spoiled McIntyre’s move to Friday Night Smackdown by booking him for a Universal Championship match against Roman Reigns at Baltimore on October 1. The match was advertised locally, but this could mean Drew McIntyre is one sure individual to move to Friday nights in WWE Draft 2021.
WWE Draft 2021: Cesaro
Cesaro has been a hit & miss on Friday Night Smackdown, and he needs a desperate change. Moving to Monday Night Raw could help his demeanor and he may get the push he desperately needs.
Right now, Cesaro isn’t a regular face on the Blue brand. His last feud with Seth Rollins saw him reach the pinnacle of his talent as he defeated the former World Champion at Wrestlemania 37. He then faced Roman Reigns for the Universal Championship at Wrestlemania Backlash, but after losing to the Tribal Chief, his push got abrupted, all of a sudden.
Since then, Cesaro didn’t get any fruitful storyline, and he witnessed a radical fall in his stocks. Moving to Monday Night Raw could pay heavy dividends for the Swiss Superman who is in a dire need of getting something meaningful under his belt.
WWE Draft 2021: Asuka
Asuka has not been seen on WWE TV for more than two months now. The former Women’s Champion and one of the finest in the women’s roster is due for a return, and she might return on the Blue brand this time.
It was reported that WWE creative had nothing to offer to Asuka on Monday Night Raw.- This means she could make a return to Friday Night Smackdown in the upcoming WWE Draft 2021 to explore better possibilities and maybe get into a feud with her former foe Becky Lynch.
WWE Draft 2021: Kevin Owens
Kevin Owens may be leaving the company once his contract expires in January 2022. However, before packing his bags, the Prize Fighter might move to Monday Night Raw. Kevin’s stocks were on the uprise earlier this year during the Royal Rumble season when he gave Roman Reigns a run for his money.
However, after his storyline with Roman Reigns ended, he didn’t get anything fruitful on his plate, and just like Cesaaro, he too was lost in the gloomy skies of irrelevancy. A potential last run with WWE for Kevin Owens could end up on a high if he moves to Monday Night Raw in the upcoming WWE Draft 2021.
