For those wondering how WWE would keep the product fresh and create new storylines with restricted rosters, well here is your answer.

According to NoDQ, WWE will host a draft show once a year in order to freshen up the roster and ensure that storylines don't go stale.

This will represent a chance for the commissioners and the general managers to re-draft superstars and mix up their roster, with Stephanie able to take people from SmackDown LIVE, and Shane able to take superstars from Monday Night Raw.

It's not yet understood when or where the draft shows would take place, but it's believed to happen once a year from now on, which will give WWE the perfect opportunity to build up new feuds and new storylines.

The draft on Tuesday night got everyone in the WWE universe talking, with the likes of Finn Balor, American Alpha, Nia Jax, Alexa Bliss, Mojo Rawley, and Carmella all being called up from NXT.

The talking points also surrounded Seth Rollins being the number one pick and going to Raw, along with former Shield member Roman Reigns, but current WWE Champion Dean Ambrose heading in the opposite direction for SmackDown LIVE, along with veterans John Cena and Randy Orton.

WWE is playing host to their first Pay-Per-View following the draft on Sunday evening as WWE Battleground takes centre stage.
