As Announced days before, WWE’s returning Draft, which would see the brands of RAW and Smackdown separated into two completely different rosters for the first time in years, would indeed include some additional call ups, a total of six, from WWE’s well known and well praised NXT developmental system. Among these call ups were Alexa Bliss, Nia Jax and Carmella.

While Nia’s promotion to the main roster was announced on Live Television during tonight’s Smackdown episode, Alexa and Carmella’s call up to the main roster was announced on the Smackdown post show, which covered the remaining superstars yet to be drafted. Nia Jax will be featured on Monday Night RAW, while Bliss and Carmella will be competing on Smackdown. Carmella’s Move to Smackdown also leaves her separated from Enzo and Cass, who she managed on NXT prior to their promotion. Also Promoted to the Main Roster overnight were Finn Balor, Former NXT Tag Team Champions American Alpha (Chad Gable and Jason Jordan) and One Half of the Hype Bros Mojo Rawley.

Triple H, who has played a part in leading the NXT brand to its success, reacted to the news of the recently promoted superstars following the Draft on Twitter.

Per the Culmination of the Draft, the RAW Womens Roster will be made up of Womens Champion Charlotte, Dana Brooke, Paige, Summer Rae, Sasha Banks, Alicia Fox and Nia Jax, while Smackdown will be made up of Natalya, Becky Lynch, Eva Marie, Carmella, Alexa Bliss and Naomi. Tamina, Nikki Bella and Emma were not eligible to be drafted and have yet to return to Television from Injury. Maryse will also be heading to Smackdown alongside The Miz, as the blue brand also managed to acquire Nikki Bella’s Long Term Boyfriend John Cena, while Lana will stay at the side of United States Champion Rusev on Monday Night RAW. Congratulations go out to Carmella, Alexa and Nia on being promoted to the main roster.
