On this past week’s Raw and SmackDown show, we saw the latest edition of the WWE SuperDraft ShakeDraft, and let’s be honest, it was a bit rubbish.
The only headlining swap was that of the Fiend moving from Raw to SmackDown, something FOX were reportedly pushing for very hard, but from the looks of it, it doesn’t matter what brand he’s on anyway.
According to WWE.com, Bray is set to appear on every single episode of Raw until December 2019 despite now being a SmackDown star.
This would suggest that his feud with Rollins will last until at least December, probably with a DQ finish after Seth uses a chair in a chairs match at TLC.
This news has of course confused and annoyed a lot of fans, who are starting to think that WWE simply doesn’t care anymore, and that things like promising two separate rosters and then immediately going back on that promise doesn’t matter.
Well, you’ve got to start thinking that it does matter. WWE’s ratings are at an all-time low, and it’s these small, fan intelligence-insulting moves that will slowly wear away at your fanbase, because who wants to feel like they’re being taken for an idiot?
While Bray will mainly feature in dark matches after Raw goes off air, it still completely defeats the purpose of the original draft.
