Published 18 Comments

It's only been three weeks since the WWE Draft, but according to rumours, officials are already second guessing certain decisions that were made.

July 19 and the first ever SmackDown LIVE played host to the Draft, and it saw Stephanie McMahon and Mick Foley represent Monday Night Raw, and Shane McMahon and Daniel Bryan represent SmackDown LIVE.

The four made their picks between each other for each brand and then they went their separate ways.

So far, the feeling around the WWE is a positive one. Both Raw and SmackDown LIVE have put on good shows since the Draft, and fans are excited to see how they keep the ball rolling.

However, word is that some WWE officials are already second guessing some of the Draft picks that were made and are already questioning whether certain superstars are on the right brand.

According to Cagesideseats' rumour page, WWE Creative are already thinking of ways to reshuffle the brands, despite it not even being a month since the initial Draft.

Two superstars in question in particular are Kevin Owens and Randy Orton.

As it currently stands, Owens represents Monday Night Raw, and is just coming off a feud with Sami Zayn, who is also on Raw, whilst Orton is on the blue brand of SmackDown LIVE, heading into a massive match with Brock Lesnar at SummerSlam.

However, officials behind the scenes at WWE believe Owens is more suited for SmackDown LIVE, and Orton would be better off on Raw.

Whether these thoughts and concerns are 100% legit is yet to be identified, but it's certainly interesting to hear word on the street that WWE are already second guessing some of their picks.
