WWE SmackDown: AJ Styles Drafted to Monday Night Raw

AJ Styles was a shock pick for Monday Night Raw in the second round of the WWE Draft this week on SmackDown.

The former WWE Champion only recently made the move over to SmackDown as part of the Intercontinental Championship tournament but his backstage issues with Paul Heyman have been well documented.

While it’s unknown as to why Styles has been sent back to Raw, it’s believed that there could be a number of backstage reasons for this.

Styles wasn’t the only big move of the second round of the WWE Draft since Naomi also followed The Phenomenal One to the red brand.

The Women’s Tag Team Champions remained over on Raw, while Sasha Banks remained on SmackDown and was joined by The EST of WWE Bianca Belair.

Styles later spoke about his move over to Raw and seemed mostly upset about not being the first draft pick of the night.
