While some drafts are expected and appreciated by the fans, others just baffle the lot. The tentative date for the draft is Friday, October 1st. While there is no leaked news of which superstars will switch colors, former WWE Champion Bobby Lashley just dropped a major hint.

The Almighty recently tweeted that he wouldn’t mind working on Fridays. We don’t know if it is a subtle hint or just a spin to make the fans excited for the draft. Either way, we will be keeping a close eye on the action.

It will be an interesting change of pace for both brands if the former WWE Champion is drafted to Friday Night SmackDown. The amount of storylines and feuds that might happen has the fans licking their lips.

Lashley feels that after running Monday Night Raw for three years, a change of scenery might be good for him.

The fans are loving the prospect of watching the Bloodline versus the Hurt Business go at each other. Will it actually happen?

Bobby Lashley next in line for the WWE Universal Championship?

WWE has put faith in Big E to carry the red brand forward as the new face of it. It doesn’t look like that the title will change hands anytime soon. Also, with Drew McIntyre once again able to compete for the title, it makes a lot of sense to move Lashley to SmackDown.

The number of storylines is infinite if the creative team behind the TitanTron can think of it.
