Heath Slater Is Undraftedable and Other Things I Learned From WWE's 2016 Raw/Smackdown Draft

Heath Slater Is Undraftedable and Other Things I Learned From WWE's 2016 Raw/Smackdown Draft

Last night's WWE Draft was underwhelming. What should have been a draft heavy show with only one match Seth Rollins vs Dean Ambrose. But instead we got a bunch of throwaway matches and more than half the picks took place on the network after Smackdown Live. 

What I learned...

  • With both Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar on the roster that means Raw is Drugs
  • Owens and Zayn are good to fight forever 
  • Cena and Orton... see above  
  • Mojo Rawly is more coveted than Samoa Joe and Shinske Nakamura 
  • Smackdown is the new "He Man Women Haters Club" 
  • Raw was so stacked they wasted a pick on Big Show
  • Smackdown is so desperate they drafted Kane
  • New announce teams: Michael Cole, Corey Graves and Byron Saxton (RAW), Mauro Ranallo, JBL and David Otunga (Smackdown)
