Raw gets the best of young talent
Though it was touted heavily that Smack Down will be a home to the aspiring young talents but the drafts showed a completely different story as majority of young Turks were Drafted to Raw while the most of the Veterans were moved to the Smack Down rooster.
Finn Balor sparkles
One lad that particularly became a talking point seconds after debuting in the WWE was Finn Balor who was drafted to the Monday night Raw. He was already in the lime light even before his debut and WWE management has also planned some huge things for the Ultimate Villain.
Dean Ambrose Draft was a Master Stroke
Perhaps the biggest master stoke that completely shocked everyone was Ambrose being drafted to WWE Smack Down. That can be move which can make WWE more interesting in the days to come but it also created confusion among the fans about the future of WWE championship as it is owned by a Smack Down superstar.
