This past Friday the WWE Superstars took part in the opening rounds of the WWE 2020 Draft as part of Friday Night SmackDown with the remaining picks set to take place this coming Monday as part of RAW.
Several female superstars were featured as part of the initial drafts with Asuka, Sasha Banks, Naomi, Bianca Belair, Nia Jax, Shayna Baszler, Mandy Rose and Dana Brooke all being officially assigned their shows.
In the opening round the current RAW Women’s Champion Asuka was picked to remain on Monday Night RAW where she has been recently feuding with rival Zelina Vega.
In round 2 some of WWE’s most popular female superstars were central focus as Naomi was drafted to Monday Night RAW with Bianca Belair moving to the blue brand alongside Sasha Banks who will be remaining on Friday Night SmackDown. Following in the footsteps of the RAW Women’s Champion, it was also revealed that the current Women’s Tag Team Champions Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler will also remain on Monday Night RAW where in recent weeks the pair have been demolishing not only the Riott Squad but Lana & Natalya.
In an unsurprising move Mandy Rose was drafted to Monday Night RAW just a few short weeks after being drafted as part of the ongoing rivalry between Mandy Rose’s partner Otis and The Miz.
In the closing round of part one of the draft Dana Brooke like Mandy Rose found herself remaining on the red brand after it was revealed she too was drafted with Mandy just a few short weeks ago.
Unfortunately it seems as though Mickie James has once again somehow slipped through the cracks as neither show decided to pick up the former Women’s Champion making Mickie a highly sought after free agent.
In part two of the WWE 2020 Draft several influential female superstars are up for grabs including: Bayley, Alexa Bliss, Carmella, Nikki Cross, Lacey Evans, Charlotte Flair, Billie Kay, Lana, Natalya, The Riott Squad (Ruby Riott & Liv Morgan), Peyton Royce, Tamina and Zelina Vega.
I personally am hoping for more of a shakeup with round 2 as bar Naomi and Bianca Belair there doesn’t seem to be too much of a difference to what we’ve seen over the last few months. Let us know who you want to see drafted in part two of the draft as well as which pick in part one was the best decision.
