A special edition of Monday Night Raw, where talent is up for grabs by both the red and blue brands.

Hosted by: “Candy Man” Jay Shannon

“The only constant in life is change”-Heraclitus

Welcome to night 2 of the 2020 WWE Draft. Friday night, the first part of the draft broke up the New Day and sent 2/3rds of them to Raw. Plus, A.J. Styles went red. Seth Rollins and the Mysterios went to Smackdown. Stephanie McMahon will host the draft, tonight. For every 2 picks of Smackdown, Raw will get 3. Up to 60 stars are available to move. Those that don’t get assigned tonight will become “free agents” that can pick either show to perform on. Let’s see how this goes…

Our regular announce team was in the house. They ran down Night One of the Draft. We got Naomi and Miz and Morrison on the Crimson Flagship. Tons were ready to be shifted around.

Randy Orton opened the show. They mentioned how Randy was likely a high draft pick. We saw the end of last week’s six man match. Orton hit an RKO to pin Drew McIntyre.

Orton said no matter which brand he ends up on, he still plans to take Drew’s title at Hell in a Cell. Orton knew Drew has had an excellent year, so far. Drew, in Randy’s opinion, has been elevated to the top tier. Randy said the pin last week was an omen for things to come. Orton was certain that he would pin Drew in less than two weeks and take the title he so deserves. Randy was talking how he was going to do it when…

Enter Drew McIntyre. Drew congratulated Randy for being the first to pin him in a year. Drew said Randy made a huge mistake…he let Drew get up. Drew said all suffering from now on will be for him, not others. Drew was ready to kick the crap out of Randy. Orton tried to attack but got blasted with punches and kicks. Randy got a kick in and slid out of the ring. WHen Drew followed, Orton jumped him. Drew ended up itching Orton into the ringpost and then hitting a Urangage onto the announce desk. Drew rolled Randy back in the ring but The Viper scooted out the other sidee. He slithered up the ramp. Drew wanted him to return but Orton was staying back.

Stephanie was ready to give us the first round of Drafts, right after these messages.

We got a promo for the Hell in a Cell event. This one just might be one of the better shows of the year.

Stephanie came out to a huge pop. She had the envelope with the draft picks.
