Shorty G staying on SmackDown in WWE Draft


WWE has revealed the destination for one of the undrafted wrestlers from night one of this year's WWE Draft.

In a video posted before tonight's Raw, WWE announced that Shorty G (Chad Gable) has been drafted to SmackDown. That's also the brand he was on prior to the start of the draft. In his most recent match, Shorty G was quickly defeated by Sheamus on the October 2 episode of SmackDown.

Mickie James and The Lucha House Party's Gran Metalik & Lince Dorado are the other wrestlers who weren't drafted from the night one draft pool. WWE posted a video tonight featuring more dissension between The Lucha House Party after Kalisto was drafted to SmackDown without his teammates during the first portion of the draft.

WWE announced prior to the draft that any undrafted wrestlers would "immediately be declared free agents and able to sign with the brand of their choosing."

The draft will conclude with night two taking place on tonight's episode of Raw. Wrestlers from the night two draft pool are eligible to be selected by Raw or SmackDown tonight.
