Between last Friday and Monday last night the annual WWE draft took place. With the majority of the big names being taken on tv and the rest being taken on the talks shows as supplemental picks we now know how the rosters will look after Backlash May 6th. Certainly NXT will look a lot different with their roster being raided. Here’s how the draft played out:

So how well did Jovan and Sarah do in their mock draft? Jovan draft 22 wrestlers to Smackdown correctly while Sarah got 28. While this was all in good fun, it is fun to imagine new feuds and other things. Perhaps before the rosters reset post backlash you will see a fantasy booking show from us.
