WWE has confirmed the return of the draft, set to begin on the October 11 edition of Friday Night Smackdown on FOX, and wrapping up on the October 14 Monday Night Raw.
In addition to WWE Superstars from both shows appearing on each broadcast, there will also be “personalities from FOX and NBCUniversal” brought in to make the announcements.
This confirms a report from earlier this month by Dave Meltzer. With the Smackdown brand moving to FOX next month, the returning draft – and it may end up being important to note that they are not referring to it as a “Superstar Shakeup” but a full draft – is a way for WWE to split up the rosters going forward.
Nothing has been made official about NXT and 205 Live as of yet.
