– As noted, real-life WWE couple Paige and Alberto Del Rio were split up in the WWE Draft as Paige is going to RAW and Del Rio is headed to SmackDown. On last night’s WWE Network coverage of the Draft, Booker T made a few mentions of Paige likely being upset over the move, but blamed her anger on being picked late in the Draft. Many assumed Booker was insinuating that Paige was upset over her and Del Rio going to different brands. Del Rio was interviewed backstage about his pick and didn’t seem too thrilled.
– There’s a lot of speculation that Bayley will end up on the main roster before the month is over, perhaps as Sasha Banks’ mystery partner against Dana Brooke and WWE Women’s Champion Charlotte at Sunday’s Battleground pay-per-view.
RAW only received two WWE NXT picks in the Draft, Finn Balor and Nia Jax, and with Charlotte, Dana and Sasha going to RAW, Bayley would be a good fit. We noted yesterday that WWE had “Hugger Section” signs placed in ringside seats at SmackDown but we’ve heard from one fan that those signs were created and placed by another fan. As noted, only 59 of 60 Draft picks were announced with Heath Slater being “left out” as an apparent comedy bit.
