The resumption of the draft has been confirmed by WWE Chief Content Officer Paul “Triple H” Levesque for the upcoming weeks.
In a £7.5 billion deal earlier in the week, WWE was sold to Endeavor, and Triple H used Monday Night Raw to reassure everyone that the company is “going nowhere.”
The 53-year-old’s participation on Friday Night SmackDown to address the crowd and make a significant announcement was afterwards confirmed.
All stars will be eligible, and Levesque guaranteed that the draft will return and be “bigger than it’s ever been.”
The WWE draft will take place once more in a few short weeks. He described it as “a night that alters both the present and the density of every WWE superstar in the back.”
And this year’s draft will be the biggest one ever since every superstar who is eligible to participate in it will be selected.
And I can assure you that this year’s draft will genuinely alter the course of the game when all is said and done.
WWE uses the draft to switch up the rosters between Raw and SmackDown.
In WWE last year, there was no draft for the first time since 2015, and brand divides grew more hazy.
The New Day, Jeff Hardy, Charlotte Flair, Drew McIntyre, and others were selected in the 2021 draft to join SmackDown, while Bianca Belair, Edge, and Rey & Dominik Mysterio chose to join Raw.
The first draft held following Endeavor’s ownership and the first since Levesque assumed his position in September 2022 will take place this year.
