WWE officials Adam Pearce and Sonya Deville opened the third round of the 2021 WWE Draft during tonight’s SmackDown on FOX episode and announced several picks.

SmackDown picked Happy Baron Corbin and Madcap Moss (Riddick Moss) to stay on the brand. SmackDown also selected Hit Row (“B-Fab” Briana Brandy, Ashante “Thee” Adonis, “Top Dolla” AJ Francis, NXT North American Champion Isaiah “Swerve” Scott) to come from WWE NXT.

RAW selected WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions Nikki A.S.H. and Rhea Ripley to stay on the brand. RAW also picked Keith “Bearcat” Lee to stay on the brand.

As noted, WWE Draft changes will officially go into effect with the October 22 edition of SmackDown, which is the night after WWE Crown Jewel. Half of the roster is being drafted tonight on SmackDown, and the other half is being drafted on Monday’s Draft Night 2 edition of RAW. Any Superstars who are still not drafted after RAW will automatically become free agents, free to sign with any brand of their choosing.
