Thefanboyseo.com’s WWE Raw and SmackDown Fantasy Draft Picks
With the impending brand split happening in WWE‘s Raw and SmackDown, the team decided to do a draft pick on which superstar goes to which brand.
We had a lot of fun doing this draft and hopefully you get to enjoy what we have in store for you rasslin’ fans out there.
Shall we begin?
Dirv (Raw): SETH ROLLINS
probably the guy who has been the WWE’s MVP for over 2 years. Most well-rounded talent and can stay for a decade.
Earl: He is the king of Raw, if not for that injury most likely hes have done a lot of good main events on the show
Adrian (Smackdown) AJ STYLES
has nothing but simply been gold since he arrived, and has proven why he’s one of the best in the world.
(Raw) Roman Reigns
Dirv: marketing wise he’s going there. Crowd reactions has not been his best friend but we can flip him with rollins on who is the top face and heel of the brand. I just feel that Reigns has more of an upside compared to big match John
(Smackdown) John Cena
Adrian: mainly so he can pass the torch to the next batch of wrestling heroes
Dirv: and he’s still the top face in the company albeit in a transitional role
(Raw) American Alpha
Dirv: so for my third pick: I’m going to pick a team that has all the potential. they’re over right now and one of them might grow into a potential moty machine
(Smackdown) Kevin Owens
Adrian: my third pick: a great worker, sobrang versatile regardless of size and one of the best assholes today
(Raw) Shinsuke Nakamura
Dirv: My next pick and my 4th pick is someone who transcends the boundaries and glass ceilings found in wrestling. Probably the best worker in the business. probably the biggest dream match machine in the company
Adrian: ok, so for our 4th pick … a great wrestler, a great workhorse and most of all, has a very kid-friendly gimmick.
(Raw) Sami Zayn
Dirv: since someone got who was supposed to be my 5th pick. I’m not going to fight fire with fire. I’m taking someone who can carry my midcard and eventually be a top face
(Smackdown) Finn Balor
Adrian: someone who can be a great upper midcarder and has history with my first pick; also has history with my first pick (AJ Styles)
(Raw) Sasha Banks
Dirv: my 6th pick: i need to build m ywomen’s division and I’m putting the internet’s favorite diva and arguably the best women’s worker in the company
(Smackdown) Enzo and Cass
Adrian: Can’t get wrong with this team, and with the best smacktalkers in the biz
(Raw) Rusev and Lana
Dirv: my 7th pick is more of a rebuilding project buut he is getting back to top form. a massive guy who can work.
Earl: But in a twist in want to see the bulgarian brute as a face; Hardsell but interesting. Just dont have him pull out a gun
(Smackdown) Karl Anderson
Adrian: for my next pick: this will be a reaally hard sell. pero I’ve seen the capabilities of this guy, and has the ability to be a steady mid-card/upper-midcard tweener
Earl: Good call; He has been living under the shadow of the club ever since he joined WWE.
Adrian: People easily forget that Karl is a very good singles wrestler; (Anderson) was even a G1 Climax runner-up a few years back.
Dirv: Got to go with someone who is marketable and a very good female heel.
(Smackdown) The New Day
Adrian: So with this 8th pick: their act might be getting a bit stale, but it still doesn’t change the fact that they are marketable
(Raw) The Wyatt Family
Dirv: This team will be more of a faction who can flip flop from face to heel and has two of the better performers in the company. I can also have a tag team, a mid carder and a main eventer in one pick!
Adrian: For my next pick, since we can’t just have Xavier Woods be the fall guy every match, this person will be one of my few “curious” picks sa draft natin. Also remember how Breeze looked good vs Liger? and how once upon a time he was a top contender to the NXT belt?
(Raw) Samoa Joe
Dirv: my 10th pick is a believable top monster heel and could also be the destroyer face.
(Smackdown) Tomasso Ciampa and Johnny Gargano
Adrian: Ciampa’s heel work sa ROH is so good!
(Raw) The Usos
Dirv: why not build the samoan stable, a heel samoan/mafia stable
(Smackdown) The Miz with Maryse
Adrian: Picking him because I need a talk show host.
Earl: The Miz has been underwhelming as of late. I want him on Smackdown though because hooo rah. He can even start an episode like the old days. This draft pick is golden
Adrian: Company man pa…
(Raw) Austin Aries
Dirv: My next guy is someone who can be a top midcard face, a main event heel or in a top tag team. A seasoned guy who can win while elevating talent as well.
Adrian: Neville vs Styles please!!!!
Earl: We forgot about the man who gravity forgot!
Dirv: So we have Samoa Joe, AA and Seth Rollins in one show, why not add another ROH alum? Someone who can be your second top face or your top midcard guy.
Dirv: Hinihintay ko lang na available pa siya.
Earl: Was waiting for that…
Adrian: Pati ako.
Dirv: He can thrive on a less cramped up roster.
Earl: And he got mad skills too.
(Smackdown) The Hype Bros. – Zack Ryder and Mojo Rawley
Adrian: My next pick is a combination of a great worker and a great lovable mid-level guy. Zack Ryder and Mojo Rawley.
Earl: As tag team? Good call.
Adrian: Yup, as tag team; though, Zack can easily sustain a singles run
(Raw) Authors of Pain
Dirv: My next pick will be a potential big player in the tag team world; they can be a dominant heel team and be the lackeys for a top heel.
Adrian: Ang lalim ng bunot na yan.
(Smackdown) Nikki Storm
Adrian: Dahil I do not have enough women sa roster ko pagkatingin ko, Nikki Storm. She’s also the best up-and-comers in the Women’s Division.
Dirv: Since I want the strongest roster possible and i want to have top people in all divisions, Why not get the best female wrestler the company has. My last pick is Asuka.
Earl: Perfect. You got the Japanese imports mang.
Dirv: Except Hideo Itami LOL.
(Smackdown) Eva Marie
Adrian: My 15th pick is a Heat magnet. let’s face it, the only reason why she’s still with WWE is dahil marketable na agad sya. Plus, I got to have Corey Graves pining on Eva Marie every week. Commentary gold yun.
And that wraps up thefanboyseo.com’s draft pick for WWE Raw and Smackdown. Can I get a hell yeah?
Dirv & Adrian: Hell yeah!
