The Draft will take place on WWE Raw post-Summerslam
WWE Rumor & News: WWE’s biggest event of the summer, WWE Summerslam, is all set to take place on August 21 at the newly built Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas.- This would be the first time when a WWE pay-per-view will take place on a Saturday. Pop music sensation Cardi B is likely to be the host of the event, and her song ‘Up’ is already the theme for Summerslam 2021.
The Draft has not been made official yet by WWE. But as of now, it seems like it would be a traditional Draft instead of a Superstar Shakeup.
This annual Draft is necessary to revive WWE’s falling viewership
WWE Rumor & News: WWE’s last annual Draft took place in 2020m which saw big names like Sasha Banks, Randy Orton, Seth Rollins, Braun Strowman, and Kevin Owens switching brands. This Draft is not only necessary to revive the falling viewership of WWE but to place superstars in the right brand after the sudden firings in the last year or so.
We could also see if part-timers like Brock Lesnar, John Cena, and Edge agreeing to terms with WWE and getting themselves head into a particular brand. Also, many stars from NXT are expected to join the main roster in the coming days. Most probably, after the Hell in a Cell pay-per-view.
Drew McIntyre expected to switch brands!
WWE Rumor & News: Drew McIntyre is indeed one of the hottest prodigies of Monday Night WWE Raw. It seems like he is done with the WWE Championship as of now, and moving him to the Blue Brand to go after the Universal Championship could be one great idea. Let’s see what would be the fate of the Scottish Warrior and others in this year’s WWE Draft.
