Last night we saw the WWE Draft, which separated superstars from Raw and Smackdown. During the picks, General Managers Mick Foley and Daniel Bryan had the option to call up 6 stars from NXT to fill their roster. Which superstars did they pick to be called up?
As part of Stephanie McMahon and Mick Foley’s third pick they opted to go for the man who is more than ready to move to the main roster. Former NXT champion Finn Balor has been drafted to Monday Nights. If anyone had to be drafted from NXT, Balor is the stellar pick, of course being picked in the first round gives great credibly to Finn Balor as a top level competitor. He is now on the same show as Chris Jericho, Kevin Owens, Neville and Cesaro.
For pick number 9 on the blue side, Daniel Bryan and Shane McMahon opted to go for NXT’s most popular tag team the American Alpha. Jason Jordon and Chad Gable. This to me is a cracking choice, Mr McMahon has reportedly been very high on this tag team for a while and a great pick for Smackdown.
NXT is well known for its Women’s division, to help with the Womens Champion being on Raw, Stephanie drafted Nia Jaxs to Monday Nights. This to me is a little bit of a shock, surely Bayley is a more suited pick? Hopefully Sasha brings her in at Battleground.
Adding to the female division, Alexa Bliss and Carmella have been drafted to Smackdown. Whilst the final NXT star is Mojo Rawley who has also been drafted to Smackdown.
