Report: WWE Has Big Plans For 2021 Draft
Big changes may be on the horizon
WWE has big plans for their 2021 draft, according to Andrew Zarian of the Mat Men Pro Wrestling Podcast.
Zarian tweeted: "The WWE Draft is taking place on Aug 23rd & Aug 27th. Im seeing a few reports that WWE doesn't have set plans for after the draft. I can tell you that report isn't totally accurate. WWE has big plans for some who will be switching brands following SummerSlam.
"With that said... I have heard the goal is to give this year's draft a bigger feel than the previous for all the reasons you imagine. You have a unique opportunity to hit the reset button on a lot of talent."
Zarian later noted, as previously reported, that the draft will actually take place on the August 30 episode of Monday Night Raw and the September 3 edition of Friday Night SmackDown.
What plans WWE has in store for the end of summer remains to be seen, but the company is reportedly considering moving Big E to Raw to reunite with his New Day stablemates Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods. The two-time Intercontinental Champion would remain a singles Superstar and would be featured in the red brand's main event picture should WWE greenlight the plans.
