    I hope Lio does well in 205, I loved his partnership with Lashley and felt it wasn't capitalised on at all. Guy is mega talented and I hope he gets a Title run

    Edit: Holy fuck I'm an idiot I misread the title hahahaha

    Re: WWE Draft coming in October

    On one hand I feel like it's too early for a draft since the Shakeup wasn't too long ago, but on the other hand the Wild Card rule buggered things up that a hard reset ruling would be a godsend, so GIVE ME THAT DRAFT.

    As for who'd go where, and to keep this from getting all-too-fantasy-like, to make things easier I'll say that all current champions and their current top contenders will stay on their respective same brand. Therefore:

    Tied to Raw:
    - Universal Champion Seth Rollins and top contender Braun Strowman.
    - Raw Tag Team Champions Seth Rollins & Braun Strowman (talk about a waste of two slots) and top contenders Dolph Ziggler & Bobby Roode (talk about a waste of two slots).
    - United States Champion AJ Styles and top contender Cedric Alexander (by default I guess)
    - Raw Women's Champion Becky Lynch and top contender Sasha Banks.

    Tied to Smackdown:
    - WWE Champion Kofi Kingston and top contender Randy Orton.
    - Smackdown Tag Team Champions The New Day (Xavier Woods & Big E) and The Revival (Scott Dawson & Dash Wilder, both technically Raw superstars but fuck it, they're feuding for the SD straps, they're Smackdown bound, bugger it).
    - Intercontinental Champion Shinsuke Nakamura and top contender The Miz.
    - Smackdown Women's Champion Bayley and top contender Charlotte.

    Tied to 205 Live:
    - Cruiserweight Champion Drew Gulak and top contender Humberto Carillo.


    I havn't kept up with NXT so I have no idea what the current rivalries and contenders are, but all current NT title holders will stay in NXT, despite Shanya having held a death grip on the women's division for, like, ever.

    Multi-brand titles like the 24/7/11 Eurocontinental Television Championship and the Women's Tag Team Championships enable whoever wins them to appear on either brand, but until they win the title superstars are tied to their default brand. So currently, for example, R-Truth can appear wherever the hell he wants, but once he loses the title he'll be tied to Raw, unless he wins back the title in the same night. Same with the Women's Tag Team Champions Alexa Bliss and Nikki Cross and being tied to Smackdown.

    Additionally, certain superstars associated with current champions or contenders via tag team, unit, or managerial, will be on the same brand for the sake of consistency and etc.

    Okay, there's the setup, those currently tied to certain rosters are:

    Raw:
    - Seth Rollins
    - Braun Strowman
    - Bobby Roode
    - Dolph Ziggler
    - AJ Styles
    - Cedric Alexander
    - Becky Lynch
    - Sasha Banks
    - R-Truth
    - Like Gallows (due to unit with AJ Styles)
    - Karl Anderson (due to unit with AJ Styles)

    Smackdown:
    - Kofi Kingston
    - Randy Orton
    - Xavier Woods
    - Big E
    - Scott Dawson
    - Dash Wilder
    - Shinsuke Nakamura
    - The Miz
    - Bayley
    - Charlotte
    - Nikki Cross
    - Alexa Bliss
    - Sami Zayn (due to being Shinsuke Nakamura's manager? Mouthpiece? God what a misuse)

    205 Live:
    - Drew Gulak
    - Humberto Carillo

    NXT:
    - Adam Cole
    - Bobby Fish
    - Kyle O'Reilly
    - Velveteen Dream
    - Shanya Baszler

    Righto, now to the draft. I'm going to copy EC's method and say Raw & Smackdown get twenty televised picks, because that's a good number. 205 Live & NXT then get three picks each in the untelevised supplemental draft, and those remaining left undrafted are distributed evenly-ish across the brands.

    Raw goes first, because Raw ALWAYS goes first.

    1. Roman Reigns
    1. Brock Lesnar
    2. Andrade Almas
    2. Bray Wyatt
    3. Aleister Black
    3. Ricochet
    4. Daniel Bryan
    4. Drew McIntyre
    5. Johnny Gargano
    5. WHAT I DIDN'T KNOW WE COULD STEAL NXT GUYS, UH UH IS TOMMASSO CIAMPA HEALTHY YET? NO? FUCK, MATT RIDDLE I GUESS.
    6. Asuka
    6. Naomi
    7. Kevin Owens
    7. Baron Corbin
    8. Mustafa Ali
    8. Samoa Joe
    9. Heavy Machinery
    9. The Usos
    10. Erick Rowan
    10. Finn Balor
    11. Absolution (Fire & Desire is a shit name, fight me)
    11. IIconics
    12. Chad Gable
    12. Rey Mysterio
    13. Elias
    13. Bobby Lashley
    14. Rusev
    14. Buddy Murphy
    15. Authors of Pain
    15. Viking Cosplayers
    16. Kairi Sane
    16. Ember Moon
    17. Cesaro
    17. EC3
    18. Akira Tozawa
    18. Tony Nese
    19. Carmella
    19. Natalya
    20. Apollo Crews
    20. Tomasso Ciampa. WE DON'T CARE IF HE'S INJURED, WE NEED TO END THE TELEVISED DRAFT WITH A BANG AND THE LIKES OF MOJO RAWLEY AIN'T GONNA CUT IT.

    NXT chooses those unused for TOO LONG!
    - Luke Harper (NXT's FINAL BOSS or something. It'll be great.)
    - The Ascension (Remember that time when Ascension returned to NXT for a one-off in the Dusty Classic a few years ago and they got a HERO'S WELCOME? That was nice. Let's do it again, and give them the tag titles too. It'll be great.)
    - Heath Slater (he's gonna dethrone Adam Cole. It'll be great.)

    205 Live snags...
    - Raul Mendoza (about time)
    - Danny Burch (Oney & Twoney!)
    - Angel Garza (foreshadowing from that 5v5 match a few weeks ago)

    Those left unsigned will be assigned a random brand, except for the current 205 Live guys, they'll stay on the purple brand. This includes peeps on the injured list like Sheamus, Ruby Riott, Jinder Mahal, Nia Jax, and those who are too low on the totem pole to waste a draft pick on.

    And there's the draft! Which started out as 'here's what would likely happen' and quickly turned into 'shit who's a big name to draft? He'll do. Wait, is he injured? I don't think so? Okay, who's next, uh, I should probably throw in an NXT guy or two, right? god, I havn't kept up with NXT, can I draft Velveteen Dream? No, damn, he's a title holder, why did I make that a rule.'

    Final Rosters:

    Raw:
    - Seth Rollins
    - Braun Strowman
    - Bobby Roode
    - Dolph Ziggler
    - AJ Styles

    - R-Truth
    - Like Gallows

    Re: WWE Draft coming in October

    I wonder if WWE is going to kill two birds with one stone again (that is kill the careers of tag team partners by splitting them up in the draft just for shock value).
