WWE could be making some surprise roster changes on tonight’s episode of Raw.
The WWE Draft is set to continue on tonight’s Raw, with the second half of the main roster being assigned brands.
WWE made various surprise drafts during this past Friday’s SmackDown, including moving Raw Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair to the blue brand.
According to PWInsider, WWE is being extremely secretive of tonight’s Raw script ahead of the show, with many being left ‘completely in the dark’ despite usually being informed of plans.
It was further noted that several people within WWE only heard of the late Draft picks from Talking Smack once they reached social media, however one source defended the company as the Draft only coming into effect several weeks later means it won’t effect any Superstars travel plans.
Walter hasn’t been seen on WWE programming since losing the NXTUK Championship to Ilja Dragunov at NXT TakeOver 35 back in August, however PWInsider noted that there has been talk of utilizing him as of late. While it wasn’t confirmed whether he’ll show up tonight or in the future, the report stated that he’s currently in the United States.
Former SmackDown Women’s Champion Bianca Belair was moved to Raw during Friday’s Draft despite being set to compete for the title she formerly held at Crown Jewel on October 21. WWE usually does their best to keep real-life couples on the same brand, so it’ll be interesting to see whether Montez Ford ends up on Raw. Ford is of course one half of the Street Profits, however WWE have been known to split up popular tag teams during the Draft.
WrestleVotes on Twitter has confirmed PWInsider’s report of WWE keeping the plans for Raw quiet, further noting that a Raw writer ‘banged the table’ for Finn Balor to be moved to the red brand to be used in Drew McIntyre’s role, as the former WWE Champion has now moved to SmackDown.
