WWE Draft Mock Up

- There have at least been discussions about AJ Styles going heel just because WWE needs more heels. The original plan had Seth Rollins returning as a babyface due to the inevitable positive crowd reactions but the company decided to fight it in the program with Roman Reigns. I’ve heard multiple ideas pitched involving the integration of The Club into the main event at Money in the Bank but I want to hold off until some things get cleared up.

- Vince McMahon, Triple H, Stephanie McMahon, Joe Belcastro, Ed Koskey and Shane McMahon, among others, all recently took part in a meeting regarding the 2016 WWE Draft. I don’t know what all was discussed but I do know there was discussion about transitioning talent from NXT to the main roster, with plenty of talk about new prospects stepping up to fill the gap. Not only will more established names from NXT be headed to the main roster with the brand extension back but there will be increased pressure on NXT as they too are a separate touring brand.

- Finn Balor, Samoa Joe, Shinsuke Nakamura and Bayley are expected to head to the main roster this summer. Hideo Itami is a guy that’s expected to help the depth of NXT with him due back soon.

- We’re told there are over a dozen talent contracts expiring later this week in regards to talent currently signed to deals with Ring of Honor and New Japan Pro Wrestling. There are names from each organization that WWE has been scouting that they’re expected to make plays for.
