WWE announces two-night draft for October

WWE has announced when this year's draft will be taking place.

It was revealed during tonight's Clash of Champions pay-per-view that the 2020 WWE Draft will take place next month. It will be a two-night event that begins on the Friday, October 9 episode of SmackDown and ends on the Monday, October 12 episode of Raw.

Dave Meltzer confirmed last month that this year's draft was planned for October.

This will be the second year in a row that a WWE Draft has taken place. The 2019 draft was also held over two nights on SmackDown and Raw. It began on October 11, which was the second-ever episode of SmackDown on Fox. WWE had done Superstar Shake-ups in April 2017, 2018, and 2019. Prior to that, WWE held a draft when the brand split was reintroduced in 2016.

The most recent movement between brands was Mandy Rose being traded to the Raw roster earlier this month. In storyline, The Miz had Rose moved to Raw as part of his feud with Otis.
