The outcomes of this yr’s draft will not be mirrored on the 2 exhibits till Oct. 22, one night time after the Crown Jewel pay-per-view. That lends some unpredictability for the way the Saudi Arabia-based occasion will shake out.

Still, Lynch’s transfer did not come as an enormous shock after Raw girls’s champion Charlotte Flair was a Round 1 choice for SmackDown final Friday. That left WWE’s flagship program in want of a girls’s singles champion.

Andrew Zarian of the Mat Men Pro Wrestling Podcast (through Wrestling Inc’s Marc Middleton) additionally reported in August that USA Network executives weren’t proud of what they thought have been imbalanced rosters on Raw and SmackDown.

Lynch was cited within the report after having initially been on Raw however getting placed on SmackDown after returning to the ring at SummerSlam following her being pregnant.
