One of the most exciting things about WWE’s brand extension is always the draft, and the surprise factor that surrounds it all as we usually don’t know who ends up where.
Of course, it’s scripted and officials know exactly where each superstar will end up, but the company does a great job of making sure the majority of picks aren’t leaked beforehand, as was the case this year.
With the current roster as stacked as it is, we just can’t wait for the next draft which is rumoured to be taking place sometime in June, but a couple of big names could be on the move before that.

According to Cageside Seats, there are two big moves Vince McMahon personally wants to see in the coming months.
The first is rather obvious, as it has been speculated for many months now.
Vince wants to see AJ Styles move over to Monday Night RAW.
That’s said to be the biggest move this year, as Vince is extremely impressed with The Phenomenal One and the work he has been doing during his SmackDown LIVE stint.
He values him very highly and is set to make him one of RAW’s biggest stars, and is even reportedly considering building the entire show around him which is a great sign – despite it being a huge loss to the blue brand.
The seeds were already planted for a departure earlier this week, with many believing him attacking commissioner Shane McMahon will lead to him exiting the show.
When those rumours first came about, the feeling was that Vince would have somebody like Seth Rollins or Roman Reigns go the other way to balance out the roster, and while we can’t rule out a huge RAW star swapping roles with Styles, Vince has another experiment up his sleeve.
The same source is claiming that the other big move will see The New Day move to SmackDown LIVE.
Regardless of how entertaining they have been on RAW and how marketable they are, there’s no denying that they have definitely peaked on the show after dropping their RAW tag team titles.
The feeling is that a move to the Tuesday night show will freshen them up more as it allows them to bring new material to a different audience, as well as work with some newer teams, such as American Alpha.
Before the extension, there was even talk of splitting them up or a heel turn, but at least this way, the trio will remain together on a different show even if they go ahead and work as singles stars whenever necessary.
While a straight-up trade may not seem fair on paper, it’ll certainly shake things up a little if this is these are the two biggest moves we’ll be getting.
