As a heads up, if you want your WWE Draft results to remain unspoiled and, as good ol’ JR puts it, as pure as snow, you should bail out of this article now and check out Brandon’s new Retro Raw Best and Worst. Potential WWE Draft spoilers lie ahead.
WWE isn’t having a lot of luck keeping the future of the red and blue brands under wraps. A casino already advertised upcoming tour information, and arenas all over the place are advertising Superstars you’ll be able to come see at their brand specific house shows. In their defense, “we promise neat people will come!” probably doesn’t sell tickets, so one can understand a venue caring more about good marketing than protecting WWE plot twists.
The latest potential reveals come from WWE.com itself, as they’ve begun advertising for post-SummerSlam events. As noted by Wrestling Inc., the tours are separated into two different rosters (although there’s no indication which is which):
Tour 1: Dean Ambrose, Bray Wyatt, Randy Orton, AJ Styles, The Miz, Cesaro, Alberto Del Rio, Enzo & Big Cass, The Dudley Boyz, Becky Lynch and Natalya
Tour 2: Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins, Kevin Owens, The New Day, Sami Zayn, Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson, Rusev, Charlotte, Sasha Banks and Paige
There’s no clear indication that these advertisements won’t change come Wednesday, and who knows — the live event marketing department of WWE.com could be the last bastion of kayfabe and trickery.
Even if these advertised rosters are accurate, there are still a lot of surprises to come. Which six NXT superstars will be called up? Will the Social Outcasts stay together? SO MANY QUESTIONS.
The WWE draft takes place on Tuesday night on the first live edition of SmackDown.
