And that is every superstar who changed brands during the 2021 draft! However it was made clear that Brock Lesnar is a Free Agent meaning he can appear wherever he wants and Bayley was also declared a free agent meaning when she returns from injury she can sign with either brand.
5 Teams were separated during the draft being Jinder and Shanky from Veer, Tamina from Natalya, Tegan Nox from Shotzi, Mace from T-BAR and Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods from Big E.
3 Championships also changed brands with both Women’s titles moving brands and the NXT North American Championship moving to Smackdown for the time being. Will they just swap the Women’s titles between champions? This would technically give Charlotte yet another reign so it’s a strong possibility.
Now we know the new lay of the land, Who do you think will benefit most? and who could suffer as a result of the switch? Let us know your thoughts!
