The destiny of WWE’s Superstars will be determined during a two-night draft beginning live on Friday Night SmackDown on Saturday morning at 02:00 (10 October).

The event will be broadcast live on WWE DSTV Channel 128 and Supersport.

Fans around the world will witness the fate of their favourite Superstars as WWE Chief Brand Officer Stephanie McMahon presides over the two-night draft.     

Tune-in as more than 20 Superstars are eligible to be drafted including Universal Champion Roman Reigns, Raw Women’s Champion Asuka, Sasha Banks, The Hurt Business, AJ Styles, Bianca Belair and many more.

The WWE Draft will conclude live on Tuesday 13 October on Raw at 02.00am on WWE DSTV Channel 128 and Supersport.

WWE Draft rules and Superstar pools

Over 60 Male Superstars, Female Superstars and Tag Teams have been placed into the 2020 WWE Draft. More than 20 Superstars are eligible to be drafted on Friday night, and more than 30 Superstars are eligible to be drafted on Monday night.

Due to relative length of each show, for every two picks that SmackDown selects, Raw will get three picks from the Draft Pool.

Tag Teams will count as one pick unless FOX or USA Network, in conjunction with WWE Officials, wants to pick one Superstar from the team.

Undrafted Superstars will immediately be declared free agents and able to sign with the brand of their choosing.

WWE Superstars have been split into eligible pools for the Friday and Monday episodes of the WWE Draft. Conversations have been ongoing between WWE officials, FOX and USA Network, so anything could happen over the two nights.
