The 2016 Brand Split Draft was unique because the whole WWE roster was up for grabs. In the past an interpromotional draft was kayfabe presented as random and robbed each other's roster. With rumors of a 2017 draft happening sometime after WrestleMania my Fab 5 this time focuses on who might be drafted. The only rules of Steviouseses draft is that each brand gets 3 male singles wrasslers, 1 tag team and 1 woman.
FAB 5 : RAW PICKS - in random order.
Dean Ambrose. The Lunatic Fringe has done everything there is to do on Smackdown Live : WWE Champion, Intercontinental Champion and filled a contender role for both. Ambrose will just end up spinning his wheels with the limited Smackdown roster. Raw will bring new opponents and new title opportunities.
Miz, Has the Miz gone as far as he can on Smackdown Live? Without a payoff to his feud with GM Daniel Bryan, which would have to be a match, he is better off taking his mic skills to Raw. At least the WWE has rewarded his hard work with a blowoff feud against John Cena.
Baron Corbin. Corbin's size and aggression will be a perfect fit on Raw. After a year of main roster experience the Lone Wolf could have some great feuds with Raw's big men.
American Alpha. It ain't easy for a smiling, happy babyface in the WWE. Yet AA has succeeded. With some more screen time the sky is the limit for these two talents. Putting them on Raw could be just what the doctor ordered.
Natalya. This Canadian has had a role on Smackdown Live but creative seems to be running out of ideas. Maybe a change for this veteran will rejuvenate her career.
FAB 5 : SMACKDOWN LIVE PICKS - in random order.
Seth Rollins. Rollins was a long term champion in 2015 but apart from a very short title win he's been spinning his wheels when it comes to winning championships. He's still a popular face and top contender but Raw is full of worthy champions in waiting. Put him on Smackdown Live and not only will he be the top face but he will be 3 time WWE Champion in no time!
Cesaro. Even though Cesaro has been seemingly overlooked he takes whatever WWE hands him and makes it work. The fans love his talent and low key humor. Maybe on Smackdown Live he can be a long term Intercontinental Champion or top contender to the WWE Championship?
Sami Zayn. The loveable loser. He could make a broom look good in a match but never seems to come out on top. I'm sure Zayn could be Intercontinental Champion on Smackdown Live and even start winning some matches.
New Day. Have you noticed that New Day doesn't have a real feud lately? Their comedy can only take them so far. Raw has gone in a different direction with the tag team division since the New Day's epic title reign. On Smackdown Live they could have a fresh start and even another title hunt and victory. And as with many tag teams, a breakup and feud would make a great long term Smackdown Live storyline.
Dana Brooke. She's always the sidekick. Sidekicks can only go so far in the WWE. What could Brooke accomplish on Smackdown Live? When she's drafted the WWE Universe will find out.
When will the WWE have the draft? It hasn't been announced but the rumors are between WrestleMania and the Smackdown Live's MITB ppv in June. It's a good time to shake up the rosters and start new storylines and rivalries. In the meantime --- Wrestle freakin Mania is less than 4 weeks away. Stevious is excited for the jam packed show that is sure to be one of the best ever!
