WWE Draft 2024 Live Results: Selections are underway during SmackDown

It's time to shake up the WWE roster.

The 2024 WWE Draft is about to begin as the Raw, SmackDown and NXT rosters change dramatically over the weekend. Roughly half of this year's draft picks will be made Friday night before Monday. Not every star is eligible to be selected on Friday, but some of the biggest names could still switch brands, and young rising stars could find themselves elevated to the main roster.

Here's what to know about this year's draft before it gets underway with „Friday Night SmackDown”:

First Overall Pick: Bianca Belaire to Smackdown

Second overall pick: Jey Uso to Raw

Third overall pick: Carmelo Hayes to SmackDown

Fourth overall pick: Seth Rollins to Raw

Fifth overall pick: Randy Orton to SmackDown

Sixth overall pick: Bran Breaker to Raw

Seventh overall pick: Nia Jax to Smackdown

Eighth overall pick: Liv Morgan to Raw

Ninth overall pick: LA Knight to SmackDown

10th overall pick: Ricochet to Raw

11th overall pick: The Bloodline (Solo Chikova, Tama Tonga and Paul Heyman) to SmackDown

12th overall pick: Sheamus to Raw

13th overall pick: AJ Styles to SmackDown

14th overall pick: Chad Cable to Raw

15th overall pick: Andrade to Smackdown

16th overall pick: Gianna James to Raw

  • SmackDown signed Cody Rhodes and AJ Styles to their Undisputed WWE Universal Championship match at Backlash France. Afterwards, Rhodes announced his first round picks for SmackDown, leading to a confrontation from Carmelo Hayes. Hayes challenged Rhodes to a match later in the night, which Rhodes accepted.
  • Dragon Lee and Rey Mysterio defeated Angel and Berto, but after that, Santos Escobar revealed footage of him attacking Lee before WrestleMania. This left LWO member Carlito, Lee and Mysterio confused. Carlito then attacked both stars before leaving the arena, much to Escobar's delight.
  • Brone Breaker defeated an untitled competitor in a squash mash.
  • Kevin Owens tried to pay back last week for attacking Solo Chikoa and Tama Tonga. The advantage eventually favored The Bloodline, but Randy Orton came to Owens' aid to throw the others out of the ring.
  • Tiffany Stratton and Naomi battled for the right to challenge Bayley for the WWE Women's Championship, but Nia Jax interrupted the match by attacking Bayley and Naomi. Stratton then got the last laugh by attacking them both, but the No. 1 contender was undecided.
