WWE SmackDown video highlights: Draft night one

This year's WWE Draft kicked off with four rounds taking place on last night's SmackDown.

In the first round, WWE Champion Drew McIntyre and Universal Champion Roman Reigns stayed on their respective brands with Raw selecting McIntyre and SmackDown selecting Reigns. Raw Women's Champion Asuka and The Hurt Business (MVP, United States Champion Bobby Lashley, Shelton Benjamin & Cedric Alexander) also stayed on Raw, while Seth Rollins moved to SmackDown.

AJ Styles, Naomi, and Women's Tag Team Champions Shayna Baszler & Nia Jax were selected by Raw in round two. Sasha Banks and Bianca Belair were drafted to SmackDown.

Round three saw Raw select Ricochet, Mandy Rose, and The Miz & John Morrison. SmackDown picked Jey Uso and Rey & Dominik Mysterio.

Kofi Kingston & Xavier Woods returned to the ring last night and won the SmackDown Tag Team titles from Shinsuke Nakamura & Cesaro. After the match, it was revealed that Kingston & Woods are moving to Raw and Big E is staying on SmackDown. Dana Brooke and Angel Garza were also selected by Raw. Otis was picked by SmackDown.

Additional draft picks will be announced on this week's episode of Talking Smack. The draft will then conclude with the second pool of eligible wrestlers being selected on Monday.

The build to Hell in a Cell also continued on last night's SmackDown. It was revealed that Reigns and Jey Uso's Universal Championship match at Hell in a Cell will be the first-ever Hell in a Cell I Quit match. After SmackDown Women's Champion Bayley got herself disqualified in their title match last night, Banks challenged Bayley to face her in a Hell in a Cell match.

Plus, The Fiend made his SmackDown in-ring debut as he faced Kevin Owens in last night's main event.
