WWE Draft 2021: October 1 & 4 are the two nights when WWE Draft 2021 will happen. The first night of the Draft will take place at the Royal Farms Arena in Baltimore, MD, on Friday Night Smackdown, while the second night is scheduled at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennesse.
So far, the local ads in Baltimore have advertised Roman Reigns vs. Drew McIntyre for the Universal Championship on Smackdown.- This could mean that the Scottish Warrior may be making his way to the Blue brand, but there is no official announcement regarding this match, and this could be a non-televised dark match.
