WWE Smackdown Internal Depth Chart Revealed
The WWE Smackdown male roster depth chart has been revealed with the “Tribal Chief” Roman Reigns on top with his cousin right there with him.
Roman Reigns is set to return on WWE Smackdown tonight and he recently delivered a message that “daddy’s home.”
Following the WWE Draft concluding earlier this month, the new rosters for Raw and Smackdown are all set with the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns as the top pick on Smackdown along with his cousin Solo Sikoa and the “Wise Man” Paul Heyman. The Usos were also drafted to the blue brand, so The Bloodline is together again.
There were some big babyface wrestlers drafted as possible future opponents for the top guy Reigns with AJ Styles, Edge and Bobby Lashley all coming over to team blue after they were members of the Raw roster in the past.
Within WWE, there is an internal depth chart listing the top six babyfaces and five top heels on SD. It was reported by PWInsider Elite that this list was confirmed for the men’s singles roster.
The five men listed on the babyfaces list are all former WWE Champions. They are all also in the two triple threat matches that take place tonight on Smackdown. They are joined by the third heel listed on there, the US Champion Austin Theory.
Grayson Waller is a newcomer to the Smackdown brand from NXT. It has been rumored that WWE is very high on him in terms of featuring him on the blue brand in the weeks ahead.
Roman Reigns returning to Smackdown tonight is a big deal, but there will also be some huge matches. There will be two triple threat matches and a final match in the Smackdown portion of the new World Heavyweight Title tournament. Those two triple threat matches are:
* AJ Styles vs. Edge vs. Rey Mysterio
* Bobby Lashley vs. Sheamus vs. Austin Theory
The winners of those matches will meet later on Smackdown in a singles match. The winner of that singles match will face Raw’s Seth Rollins at Night of Champion on May 27th to crown the new WWE World Heavyweight Champion.
