More WWE Draft Picks Announced On SmackDown LowDown

Yesterday on “The SmackDown LowDown,” WWE announced even more picks, and here’s who’s headed where.

Drafted to “Raw” are the trio of The Viking Raiders and Valhalla, Dexter Lumis, Candice LeRae, Natalya, “WWE NXT” call-ups Zoey Stark and JD McDonagh, Apollo Crews, the team of Sonya DeVille and Chelsea Green, and the Maximum Male Models with Maxxine Dupri. Headed to “SmackDown” are the Hit Row trio of Top Dolla, Ashante Adonis, and B-Fab, as well as Lacey Evans. Interestingly, that puts all four members of former “NXT” stable The Way on the “Raw” roster, although Johnny Gargano may possibly be drafted to “SmackDown” when more picks are made official on Monday night.

In a surprising move, “The SmackDown Lowdown” also confirmed that a few WWE stars in the first draft pool are set to be free agents, able to appear on either show, at least for now. In that category are Omos with manager MVP, Mustafa Ali, Dolph Ziggler, and “NXT” call-up Von Wagner. In Omos’ case, the onscreen explanation for his free agency is that MVP negotiated him into that position. However, it remains unclear why exactly Ali, Ziggler, and Wagner weren’t drafted to a specific brand.

WWE SmackDown:

  • Hit Row (Top Dolla & Ashante “Thee” Adonis w/ B-Fab)
  • Lacey Evans


  • Maximum Male Models (ma.cé, mån.sôör & Maxxine Dupri)
  • Dexter Lumis
  • Candice LeRae
  • Natalya
  • Apollo Crews
  • Chelsea Green
  • Sonya Deville
  • Zoey Stark
  • JD McDonagh

Omos & MVP, Mustafa Ali, Dolph Ziggler, and NXT’s Von Wagner are free agents. NXT’s Zoey Stark, JD McDonagh, and Apollo Crews were also called up.
