Whichever brand Roman Reigns is drafted to, he will be the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion of that brand and the brand without Reigns will feature the newly introduced World Heavyweight Championship.

I predict none of this will make sense because people in WWE creative have never watched an actual draft.

I didn’t realize they were timing it with the NFL draft. Of course they are.

I thought Triple H said anything could happen, and that the announcers said tag teams could get split up. So much for that drama.

They’ve done this eligibility business before.

In fairness, that’s probably a smart idea.

Don’t get me wrong, execution wise they will likely have Adam Pierce read all the picks in a super anti-climatic way, but doing it right now is perfect timing as everyone has draft fever.
