The WWE Draft kicks off this week on SmackDown. With so much anticipation surrounding it the company has now released the rules for it as well as the superstars that are eligible which you can check out here.
Over 60 Male Superstars, Female Superstars and Tag Teams have been placed into the 2020 WWE Draft.
More than 20 Superstars are eligible to be drafted on Friday night and more than 30 Superstars are eligible to be drafted on Monday night.
Due to the length of each show, for every two picks that SmackDown selects, Raw will get three picks.
Tag Teams will count as one pick unless FOX or USA Network, in conjunction with WWE Officials, wants to pick one Superstar from the team.
Any undrafted Superstars will immediately be declared free agents and able to sign with the brand of their choosing.
WWE Superstars have been split into eligible pools for the Friday and Monday episodes of the WWE Draft. Here is the breakdown of who is available for selection each night:
FRIDAY Asuka Sasha Banks Bianca Belair Dana Brooke Humberto Carrillo Elias Angel Garza Drew Gulak Heavy Machinery (Otis & Tucker) The Hurt Business (Bobby Lashley, Shelton Benjamin, Cedric Alexander and MVP) Mickie James Lucha House Party (Kalisto, Gran Metalik and Lince Dorado) Drew McIntyre Murphy Rey & Dominik Mysterio Naomi The New Day (Big E, Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods) Roman Reigns Ricochet Seth Rollins Mandy Rose Shayna Baszler & Nia Jax Shorty G AJ Styles Jey Uso

Don’t miss this WWE Draft on Friday, Oct. 9 at 8/7 C on FOX and Monday, Oct. 12 at 8/7 C on USA Network to see where your favorite Superstars are headed.
Some interesting things to note. Mercedes Martinez hasn’t been seen in Retribution for awhile but she’s still included in the draft as RETALIATION, meaning she’s still in the group. Also RAW Underground stars such as Dabba-Kato have been added. The most note able thing however is the absence of NXT stars. This could change with some surprises during the draft but it‘s still interesting.
