Starting from today, the changes from the WWE 2021 Draft take effect and those drafted to either Raw or Smackdown will have to settle in their new brand.
Tonight’s Smackdown in Wichita, Kansas, will welcome Superstars such as Charlotte Flair, Drew McIntyre, The New Day, Hit Row, Jeff Hardy, Sheamus, Shayna Baszler, and others who were drafted to the blue brand on October 1 and October 4.
Currently, the Raw Women’s champion Charlotte Flair is now part of Smackdown while the Smackdown Women’s champion Becky Lynch is part of Raw. What happens to the titles remains to be seen but there’s already a precedent set where the titles were just swapped.
A Brock Lesnar appearance is also set for tonight’s Smackdown with WWE.COM quoting Lesnar saying, “The moment I arrive at Smackdown, I will beat Roman Reigns senseless.” Reigns, with the help of The Usos and the title belt, defeated Lesnar last night at Crown Jewel.
