The Game also confirmed that fans will get to see how the mindset of the company has changed during this coronavirus pandemic era. They’ll find out the difference as soon as WWE Draft commences.
“That definitely has changed that mindset, there is different protocols and procedures, ‘hey, we’d like to move this talent, we’d like to do that,’ and you’ll see that coming up in the Draft later in the year. You definitely have to think about it a lot more and think about those changes, but I think long-term, it’s better for everybody.” (transcription by Se Scoops)
A WWE Draft has the capability to generate buzz as it could revamp the rosters creating fresh matchups, right away. It will be very interesting to see which of the superstars get shuffled around Raw and SmackDown. It’s a pretty interesting time as several tip stars are absent from TV and the roster isn’t stacked as it used to be in previous years.
As per the earlier reports, WWE Draft was originally planned for late August. Then the company planned Payback 2020 by the end causing in two back-to-back pay-per-view events. The schedule could’ve been chaotic is Draft was added to this. So it was pushed back to October just like it went down, last year when SmackDown started airing on FOX.
