Wrestling 2 the MAX EXTRA: WWE Draft Results, Super J Cup Predictions, Brock Lesnar

The WWE Draft has been anticipated for a long while by wrestling fans worldwide. The first Smackdown Live has come and gone, and it looks like Smackdown may still be the B Show. We go over the WWE Draft Results, we analyze how the rosters shape up, and discuss the NXT choices made as well. All of this, plus Super J Cup predictions, another possible Brock Lesnar USADA violation, and more.

Wrestling 2 the MAX EXTRA: WWE Mock Draft

We were rather fortunate with this W2M EXTRA, as literally hours before we were set to do our WWE Mock Draft, WWE released the official rules for the draft. Of course, the WWE Draft takes place on the first live Smackdown on Tuesday night.

So, we take our shot at trying to predict what’s going to happen with this WWE Mock Draft. Paul makes his return after his one week trip to reunite the W2M trio. However, to sort of mimic the commissioner and general manager scenario proposed on last week’s

WWE RAW, we’ve added a fourth person for this episode. Sean and Gary’s co-host on the Football 2 the MAX podcast Randy Isbelle.

How will the real WWE Draft rules affect this WWE Mock Draft? Will anyone decide to split tag teams? Who will be the six drafted from NXT? We try to figure it all out. Gary and Paul pick for RAW, (including the extra picks,) and Sean and Randy pick for Smackdown. If anything, this promises to be a fun special episode.

Wrestling 2 the MAX Episode 196 Pt 2: Smackdown going live, brand split returning, & NJPW BOSJ

On this episode of W2M, we dive in and discuss everything that is out there about Smackdown going live on July 19 and the brand extension. What does this mean for WWE? The USA Network? NXT? And even the wrestling world in general? We discuss the pros and cons of having a brand extension again and if going live is really going to make Smackdown feel special. What does WWE need to make it work this time? The answer might either be rather obvious or it might surprise you.

We also get into how

WWE could split the rosters, if there is going to be an intention to create two shows with different identities, or if it will be more of the same with exclusive rosters. Will five hours in two nights be too much for the casual WWE audience? There’s just so much to get into here that we waste no time getting into it.

There’s also some other wrestling news like Eden leaves WWE, the AAA Lucha Libre World Cup being set, CMLL bringing back the World Grand Prix, the latest on some WWE injuries, and more.
