Jimmy Korderas Questions Why WWE Teased Teams Splitting Up Ahead Of The Draft

"Why tease something before the draft and not have it happen during the draft?" That was the question Jimmy Korderas had for WWE on his latest "Reffin Rant" following "WWE Raw." WWE had previously teased the idea that tag teams and factions could end up being split as the rosters were shaken up, but ultimately the company sidestepped its own expectations and kept everyone together.

"Why tease that this could be the last time this tag team teams together because they could be drafted to separate brands and have to abide by sticking to that brand and have the draft when they're actually drafting the entire team or groups together," Korderas questioned. The likes of The Judgment Day, The Street Profits, and LWO were all kept together and moved as one, which means that everyone who was in a team before the draft remains together. While some teams might be on a different brand, that is the only change that has happened, leaving plenty of potential stories and surprises on the table.

WWE had heavily implied that The Bloodline might end, as The Usos could be drafted separately to Roman Reigns and Solo Sikoa, but even then the company didn't take that chance. WWE also implemented a free-agent rule which will allow a variety of wrestlers to pop up on both shows moving forward. The likes of Brock Lesnar, Omos, and Dolph Ziggler find themselves in that category, which also left Korderas confused as he said, "I thought that was supposed to be against the rules of the draft?"
