WWE News: WWE announces interesting rules for the Draft

The bit about NXT is quite interesting

The Draft returns in 2 days!

The WWE Draft will take place this Tuesday, on the Live edition of SmackDown. Recently, the company revealed the official rules and regulations along with the procedures for the upcoming Draft :

“RAW has the first overall pick.

Since SmackDown Live is a two-hour show and RAW is three hours, for every two picks SmackDown Live receives, RAW will receive three picks.

Tag Teams count as one pick unless a Commissioner/General Manager specifically only wants one member of the team.

Six draft picks will be made off the NXT roster.”
