The 2016 WWE "Draft" Creates Two Rosters for their Flagship Wrestling Programs: Smackdown Live & Raw [Full Video]

In what was described by the WWE as "a new era" for the company, on July 19, 2016 the wrestling organization held a WWE Draft which divided the company's pro wrestlers into two separate rosters to exclusively appear on either Smackdown Live or Raw. This is the first WWE Draft since 2011. Special Note: This is Vincent K. McMahon's 34th year of ownership of what is now known as the WWE. Dividing the rosters at this time shows a desire and attempt at a different approach to what we have seen in the WWE since 2011.
