It was announced tonight during the WWE Backstage show on Fox Sports 1 that Alexa Bliss and Nikki Cross are now going to Smackdown after they were drafted by Raw on Friday. The announcement was made by Triple H. Raw gets “future draft considerations” which really means nothing, but it sounds mildly interesting.
Here’s more from WWE.com about it:
During a special preview edition of WWE Backstage following Game 3 of the ALCS on FS1 Tuesday night, WWE COO Triple H joined host Renee Young, WWE Hall of Famer studio analyst Booker T, Christian and Paige from the WWE Performance Center to make the huge announcement that former WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions Alexa Bliss & Nikki Cross have officially been traded to the SmackDown roster.

TJR Thoughts: What immediately comes to mind is that Smackdown needs more babyface women to feud with Sasha Banks and Bayley as the two main heel women over there, so this makes a lot of sense.
For people hoping for some big trades involving bigger names, sorry. It didn’t happen tonight.
