    WWE Draft rules and Superstar pools set for 2020 edition

    The WWE Draft will get underway this Friday, Oct. 9 on SmackDown and conclude Monday, Oct. 12 on Raw. WWE Chief Brand Officer Stephanie McMahon will once again preside over both nights of selections.

    The rules and Superstar pools have now been finalized for the 2020 WWE Draft and can be found below:

    • Over 60 Male Superstars, Female Superstars and Tag Teams have been placed into the 2020 WWE Draft.
    • More than 20 Superstars are eligible to be drafted on Friday night and more than 30 Superstars are eligible to be drafted on Monday night.
    • Due to the length of each show, for every two picks that SmackDown selects, Raw will get three picks.
    • Tag Teams will count as one pick unless FOX or USA Network, in conjunction with WWE Officials, wants to pick one Superstar from the team.
    • Any undrafted Superstars will immediately be declared free agents and able to sign with the brand of their choosing.
