The WWE Draft just concluded on the latest RAW and it shook up the whole roster on both brands. Almost all the champions switched brands from RAW, SmackDown and even NXT.
On the second day of the Draft, the conclusion of the event happened with many legends arriving to make the announcements. However, a new concept of free agents came into play once it was all said and done. It’s a concept that wasn’t really present when Vince McMahon was in-charge but Triple H has changed things.
The Draft then spilled over to RAW Talk after the show and some very interesting picks happened there as well. However, there were some names that did not get assigned to any roster by the end of the day. There, WWE announced many free agents including AJ Styles, Dolph Ziggler, Mustafa Ali, Baron Corbin, Cedric Alexander and Shelton Benjamin.

But as seen earlier, superstars can still jump ship on the upcoming TV tapings. It will be very interesting to see which brand adds or deletes which wrestler. Also, who becomes a free agent or loses their free agent status. The next SmackDown show emanates from San Juan, Puerto Rico and these new roster dynamics should be worth watching.
