Following the media publicity that Brock Lesnar generated for his UFC 200 victory over Mark Hunt, WWE had planned for Brock Lesnar to the the first draft pick for RAW, according to Dave Meltzer of The Wrestling Observer. He noted that while it's not definite that it was always the plan, it was the plan last week.
Meltzer added that Dean Ambrose was scheduled to be the next pick for SmackDown, followed by Seth Rollins for RAW and then Cena for SmackDown.
Obviously plans changed significantly, as Rollins was the top draft pick, followed by Ambrose, WWE Women's Champion Charlotte and AJ Styles.
