EXCLUSIVE: Possible Moves For The 2021Draft , Did The Network Influence Moves?September 10, 2021
Did anger from the network influence the draft?
Coming up next month will be the 2021 WWE Draft. Right now the word going around is that it will kick off on the October 1st Smackdown and conclude on the October 4th RAW. Those are the working dates right now and they could change. With that, we have heard of one possible move in the draft that really could end up being two.
According to a source we have spoken with, it looks like Becky Lynch is being earmarked to move to RAW in the draft next month. These plans are still tentative and with at least three weeks till the draft, things can change. If this plan is set in stone, then that would mean Lynch would be dropping the Smackdown Women’s Championship back to Bianca Belair at Extreme Rules on September 26.
One other thing we were told was how executives at the USA Network were upset with FOX getting both Lynch and Brock Lesnar on Smackdown after SummerSlam. Now that is something that has been reported already over the last few weeks, yet we heard that the anger from USA over this may be what pressured WWE into making the decision of moving Lynch over to RAW. With Lesnar slated to be working with Roman Reigns over the Universal Title after the time of the draft, moving Lesnar does not make sense.
One final thing and we were not told this, yet one would assume that if Lynch is being moved to RAW then that would most likely mean her husband Seth Rollins would be moved back over to the red brand as well. Usually, WWE does not care about who is in a relationship with who unless it comes to married couples, and then they for the most part keep them on the same brand.
If we do hear anything else on Becky Lynch possibly moving to RAW in the draft, we will have it here and on the PWUnlimited YouTube Channel.
