Planned Date For WWE Draft Revealed?
On SmackDown, Triple H once again appeared on WWE television and this time he had a big announcement to make as he informed fans that a WWE Draft was coming.
Triple H returned to television on the Raw after WrestleMania 39 to pay tribute to those behind the scenes in the company who made WrestleMania possible and a massive success. The Game’s presence proved reassuring to WWE fans on the same day that it was announced that the company was being taken over as part of a deal with Endeavor.
On SmackDown, however, Triple H noted that it was time to look to the future of the company, and with that, he announced that the Draft would be returning in a “few weeks” and touted that it would be the biggest ever and every star in the promotion would be eligible to take part.
WRKD Wrestling has reported that the WWE Draft will take place on May 8th when Raw emanates from Jacksonville, Florida which just so happens to be the home city of AEW.

That would mean that the rosters would remain as they are for the company’s next premium live event which is Backlash on May 6th. That show will see the company return to Puerto Rico and it is set to be hosted by rap sensation, Bad Bunny.
