WWE Draft: Six of the best draft picks from night two


WWE finished off their draft this week on Monday Night Raw with 30 more superstars being drafted to either Raw or SmackDown.

Due to Raw being an hour longer than SmackDown, an extra two rounds of superstars were drafted compared to the four rounds that took place on the blue brand show last Friday.

The red brand won the first pick of the night again after Becky Lynch defeated Charlotte Flair in a match that opened the show this week.

Raw would go on to select Universal Champion Seth Rollins with the first overall pick of the night, followed by Flair and Andrade with Zelina in the rest of the first round.

On the flip side, SmackDown selected WWE Champion Brock Lesnar, followed by Kofi Kingston, Big E, and Xavier Woods of The New Day with their first round picks.

In round two, Raw drafted the Women's Tag Team Champions The Kabuki Warriors, Rusev and Aleister Black. SmackDown picked Daniel Bryan and SmackDown Women's Champion Bayley.

In round three, Raw selected Cedric Alexander, Humberto Carillo, and Erick Rowan. SmackDown meanwhile drafted Intercontinental Champion Shinsuke Nakamura and Ali.

SmackDown picked Dolph Ziggler & Robert Roode and Carmella in round four, while Raw drafted Buddy Murphy, Jinder Mahal, and 24/7 Champion R-Truth.


Round five saw Samoa Joe, Akira Tozawa, and Shelton Benjamin come off the board for Raw, while SmackDown selected The Miz and King Corbin.

In the sixth and final round, Raw selected Rey Mysterio, Titus O'Neil, and Liz Morgan. SmackDown drafted Shorty Gable and Elias.

Here are six of the best picks from night two of the WWE Draft, three from Raw and three from SmackDown.


Charlotte Flair


Raw selected Charlotte Flair with their second pick in the first round of the WWE Draft on night two to cement their status as the must-see show in the company for women's wrestling.

Now the red brand has Becky Lynch and Flair, two of the best female superstars in WWE, we can expect the show to be headlined by women a lot in the foreseeable future.

There's going to be some great battles over the Raw Women's title in the months to come.

Buddy Murphy


With their first pick in round four of the draft, Raw selected Buddy Murphy, and it definitely a pick that is filled with potential.

Hardcore WWE fans knew of Murphy's ability in the ring, but it came to fruition for all to see during his mini-feud with Roman Reigns back in August, and even The Big Dog praised him.

If given a shot, he can be a star. Hopefully he'll get a shot at the United States title soon to put him on the path towards being a top guy on the red brand.

Rey Mysterio


In the sixth round, Raw got themselves an absolute steal with their first selection in the round by picking Rey Mysterio.

Mysterio is a two-time Intercontinental champion, a former United States Champion, a four-time tag-team champion, a three-time Cruiserweight champion, and a three-time world champion and is widely regarded as the greatest cruiserweight in pro wrestling history.

How he was allowed to fall to the sixth round of the draft is a mystery. Did WWE forget about him?


The New Day


SmackDown took The New Day with their second pick in the first round of the WWE Draft on Raw and, along with the red brand's O.C. pick on Friday, it might be one of the best steals of the draft.

The New Day is one of the best tag teams in WWE, and Kofi Kingston has shown over the past few months since WrestleMania he has what it takes to carry the WWE title.

Kingston, Xavier Woods, and Big E are unlikely to split anytime soon, but if they do, it end up being one of the biggest storylines WWE has produced in years thanks to their popularity.

King Corbin


In the fifth round of the draft on Monday, SmackDown drafted Baron Corbin and he should have a big future on the blue brand.

Things haven't really gone his way on the main roster so far, but WWE has kept their faith in him and has kept pushing him, resulting in his recent King of the Ring tournament win.

While Brock Lesnar is the top heel on SmackDown right now, Corbin has shown glimpses that he could fill the top heel shoes, week in, week out, when The Beast is away from the blue brand.



Another great future pick for SmackDown from the draft came in the third round when they drafted Ali.

If it wasn't for an injury in the early part of this year, Ali might already have a WWE Championship to his name, as he was electric at the start of 2019 following his jump from 205 Live.

It might take an Intercontinental title reign for him to reach those heights again, but he's already shown his in-ring talent countless times, receiving praise from the likes of Randy Orton. He has the potential to be one of the biggest babyfaces on the blue brand.
