WWE Raw Stage

Every main roster star was eligible for the draft alongside some selected NXT talent but in the end, it is the developmental brand that may have lost out the most at the time as both the NXT Women’s Champion and NXT Women’s Tag Team Champions were among those drafted to the main roster.

The draft threw up a number of free agents as a result with Brock Lesnar, Baron Corbin, Cedric Alexander & Shelton Benjamin, Dolph Ziggler, Elias, Mustafa Ali, Omos w/MVP, Von Wagner, and Xyon Quinn all remaining undrafted. However, on NXT TV following Battleground, two of those stars made unexpected appearances.

Mustafa Ali turned up to help Wes Lee and Tyler Bate chase off The Schism while Baron Corbin shocked NXT Champion Carmelo Hayes at the end of the show, dropping Hayes with the End of Days.
