5 Picks RAW must make on Night 2 of the WWE Draft
The first night of the 2019 WWE Draft is in the books and both rosters are shaping up. 20 picks were made in total, with RAW getting 12 and SmackDown getting eight. There is still a lot left for Monday night, with the majority of the roster yet to learn their fate.
The Red brand started off the Draft by picking The Man, Becky Lynch. Following four rounds of picks, the Monday night show ended up with a roster heavy on babyface women and tag teams, while the men's division slightly leans towards the heelish side. The OC and Drew McIntyre among others will need a good set of faces to feud with.
Now, we have a clearer picture of what WWE may want for their Superstars. RAW will be all about putting together the pieces of the puzzle. They know the areas that require recruitment, based on SmackDown's events. With the Blue brand now on FOX, RAW may become the work rate based show to a certain extent. We will find out on Monday.
Here are five picks that RAW must make on Night 2 of the WWE Draft.
#5 Seth Rollins
Seth Rollins is not one of the more popular WWE Superstars at this moment, especially due to the finish to his Hell in a Cell match against the Fiend. However, he is still one of the best performers in the entire company. Rollins is seemingly the face of WWE, or at least RAW. He will likely be the number one pick on Monday, as he was in the 2016 Draft.
He is still the Universal Champion, so staying on the Red brand is pretty much the only option for him. His fellow world champion, Brock Lesnar, looks to be a big part of FOX's plans and his fiancée, Becky Lynch, was the first pick for RAW. It seems pretty straightforward but hopefully, WWE begins to book him much better than they have in the past. As unlikely as it is, a heel turn would not be a bad option.
