Draft Rules (Per WWE.com)


1. Raw has the first overall pick

2. 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
3. Tag teams count as one pick unless a Commissioner/General Manager specifically only wants one member of the team
4. Six draft picks will be made off the NXT roster
