​UPDATE: The WWE Draft Rules Revealed – 6 NXT Names, RAW & SmackDown! Plans & More


WWE.com posted the rules for Tuesday’s WWE Draft on Sunday evening. As previously reported, the WWE Draft will take place LIVE this Tuesday night when WWE SmackDown changes nights on the USA Network.

According to WWE.com, the WWE RAW brand will be getting an extra pick for every two of SmackDown’s picks due to its longer weekly runtime (three hours). Also, the tag teams will be split up only if the Commissioner/General Manager of that show wants it and six unnamed WWE NXT Superstars will be drafted to the main roster. Also, managers appear to be going wherever their in-ring talent is drafted to, although that is not specifically stated in the rules.

You can see the full rule-set and list of the eligible main roster talent (which includes Brock Lesnar) below:

* RAW has the first overall pick.
* Since SmackDown Live is a two-hour show and RAW is three hours, for every two picks SmackDown Live receives, RAW will receive three picks.
* Tag teams count as one pick unless a Commissioner/General Manager specifically only wants one member of the team.
* Six draft picks will be made off the NXT roster.
