Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns fought everything they had as before. The Beastslayer even caught The Big Dog with a Pedigree. However, as both recovered for the homestretch, Bray Wyatt emerged from the bottom of the ring and pulled Rollins down to cause a disqualification.
The Architect dragged himself along with The Fiend appeared on the ramp to amuse Rollins. McMahon came to announce the first five draft picks: Becky Lynch to Raw, Roman Reigns to SmackDown, The OC to Raw, Bray Wyatt to SmackDown and Drew McIntyre to Raw.
Rollins def. Reigns by disqualification
Beyond the strange finish, this is another quality showing between two of the best in today's business. Reigns and Rollins will never fail to deliver whether a team or rival. It's a weird decision to join Wyatt here especially since it's likely that Wyatt will go to a different brand than Rollins.
The first round of the draft began as expected but was quickly surprised. Fiend looks like he's intended for Raw to continue his debate with The Beastslayer, but he's going for the blue brand. McIntyre, meanwhile, suddenly had great hopes behind him.

King Corbin apparently had no depth against Shorty Gable early on, throwing him away easily. However, the Lone Wolf managed to break Gable's back, slowing down the smaller star so that each suplex struck him. Corbin then managed to catch his rival in the End of Days for the win. Lashley to Raw.
Corbin def. Gable by pinfall
WWE is nothing but consistent in its ability to run matches on the ground. Corbin and Gable have great chemistry, but it is a match very, very fast. This is not the only feeling. It didn't help that it all just led to The King winning again.
This second round showed that SmackDown got the short end of the stick with talent in the draft pool for the night. Bobby Lashley has hardly been set up as a second round talent to this point. Braun Strowman and Ricochet can be heavily featured by the stars for their brands.

Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman talk about Cain Velasquez and The Beast Incarnate wanting to get back to the man who killed him. Rey Mysterio came out with Velasquez, promising to give Lesnar another scar at Crown Jewel when they fight for the WWE Championship.
It was surprising that the WWE was uncomfortable with Velasquez's speech as they spoke of Mysterio for him. He can speak fluent English even though he is not a good promoter. This guy is about to get a match at the WWE Championship, and the company doesn't want him talking.
This excitement completely relies on developing from another sport to inspire people, and it's hard to say if it works.

New Day def. The OC by pinfall
This was a good match as expected, but it was rushed. The two barely got the time before it came down to Style and Kofi. The two are in a good order to finish this game, hopefully signaling that Kofi will still be a featured star going forward. the same brand in the next round. Lacey Evans may seem too tired, but she is often overstated by WWE.

Bayley came out with a new haircut and broke the Bayley Buddhies before heading to the ring. He followed The Queen early in the game despite beating a Bayley to Belly for two. It seemed like The Hugger felt all the momentum but couldn't shake it. Even a diving elbow is not enough.
However, after being caught in the Natural Selection, Bayley grabbed Charlotte and pulled her out for a small pack of three. The new champion later rejected the entire WWE Universe.
Bayley def. Charlotte by pinfall to become SmackDown's new women's champion
This is a great ending the night. Bayley completed his evolution with a full heel, and was able to make the most of it. On a big night, he was the final winner and talk. It was probably the biggest moment of his career and a good one earned a good match. Men like Cesaro and Shorty Gable were left homeless just to find out on WWE.com instead.
