The WWE Draft will get underway this Friday, October 9 on Friday Night SmackDown and conclude Monday, October 12 on RAW. WWE CBO Stephanie McMahon will once again preside over both nights of selections.
As reported by FOX Sports, the rules and Superstar pools have now been finalized for the 2020 WWE Draft.
- Over 60 Male Superstars, Female Superstars and Tag Teams have been placed into the 2020 WWE Draft.
- More than 20 Superstars are eligible to be drafted on Friday night and more than 30 Superstars are eligible to be drafted on Monday night.
- Due to the length of each show, for every two picks that SmackDown selects, RAW will get three picks.
- Tag Teams will count as one pick unless FOX or USA Network, in conjunction with WWE Officials, wants to pick one Superstar from the team.
- Any undrafted (or injured) Superstars will immediately be declared free agents and able to sign with the brand of their choosing.
WWE Superstars have been split into eligible pools for the Friday and Monday episodes of the WWE Draft. There are no WWE NXT Superstars listed in the pools. Conversations have been ongoing between WWE officials, FOX and USA Network, so stay locked into WWE Digital for the latest.
