WWE announces final round of draft picks on Raw Talk

Update --

WWE also announced overnight that Erik of The Viking Raiders has signed with Raw as a free agent and Tamina, Billie Kay, and Zelina Vega have signed with SmackDown.

**********

After tonight's Raw went off the air, an additional round of draft picks was announced on Raw Talk.

Lana, Riddick Moss, and Arturo Ruas were selected by Raw in the last round of the draft. Natalya and The Riott Squad (Ruby Riott & Liv Morgan) were selected by SmackDown.

Lana won a dual-brand number one contender's battle royal in the main event of Raw tonight and will challenge Asuka for the Raw Women's Championship on Raw's season premiere episode next Monday. Natalya said she was done with Lana earlier in tonight's show and appeared to have the battle royal won, but Lana returned and eliminated Natalya to get the win. Lana had been put through a table by Nia Jax during the battle royal but was never eliminated.

Andrade, Erik of The Viking Raiders, Billie Kay, Tamina, and Zelina Vega were in the night two draft pool but weren't picked tonight. Mickie James hasn't been drafted from the night one draft pool. Shorty G and Gran Metalik & Lince Dorado also weren't originally drafted from the night one draft pool, but it was announced prior to Raw today that Shorty G has been selected by SmackDown and Metalik & Dorado have been selected by Raw.

Andrade and Vega were laid out by stereo Sister Abigails from "The Fiend" Bray Wyatt and Alexa Bliss on tonight's Raw. Wyatt and Bliss were both selected by Raw in the draft.
