WWE Draft

WWE Smackdown Live premieres tonight on the USA Network from Worcester, Massachusetts beginning at 8:00 p.m. Eastern (7:00 CT).

Scheduled for the show tonight is the 2016 WWE Draft. As reported on over the weekend, here are the official rules for WWE Draft this year.

* RAW will get the first overall pick tonight.

* With Smackdown being a two hour show and RAW being a three hour show, for every two picks Smackdown picks up, RAW will receive three picks.

* Tag teams will count as one pick unless a Commissioner or General Manager “specifically wants one member of the team.”

* Six draft picks will come from the current NXT roster.

Wrestleview.com will have live Smackdown coverage tonight starting at 8:00 p.m. Eastern.
