WWE has posted the official 2020 draft rules and pools and the rules are the same and the pools are smaller than thought with no NXT superstars in either nights pools. Stephanie McMahon your chief brand officer will once again be in charge in announcing the picks of the 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.
