Sasha Banks will compete on Raw one last time this Monday as she attempts to win the first pick of draft night two for her new home, SmackDown.
The first night of the draft kicked off on SmackDown with a match between Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns. The former Shield brothers were battling for the first pick of the draft. Reigns represented SmackDown, and Rollins fought for Raw. Thanks to interference from Bray Wyatt, the result of the match was a little convoluted.
After Rollins was dragged under the ring by The Fiend, only to escape and Wyatt to appear at the top of the ramp, the show went straight to an ad break. Afterward, announcers revealed Raw had won the pick due to Reigns being disqualified. We guess Wyatt did target his foe Rollins but still, seems a little unfair on SmackDown and The Big Dog.
Monday's Raw will start with a similar match. Raw's Becky Lynch will take on SmackDown's Sasha Banks. The winner of that match will earn the first pick of the night for their respective brand. WWE is billing the match as a "one more time affair" due to the storied rivalry between The Man and The Boss which has been unfolding over the past couple of months.
ONE MORE TIME! @BeckyLynchWWE 🔴 & @SashaBanksWWE 🔵 may be headed to separate shows, but they will square off THIS Monday on #RAW to determine the first pick on Night 2 of the #WWEDraft. https://t.co/3rDcALjWHe— WWE (@WWE) October 12, 2019
If the draft is going to be as strict and definite as it seems, Monday night could be the last time Banks appears on Raw for a while. The Boss doesn't seem bothered, though. After being drafted to SmackDown on Friday night, Banks tweeted thank you to both Vince McMahon and also WWE on FOX. Trouble is, her best friend Bayley is now the blue brand's champion. It could be pretty awkward if Banks wants to add another title to her tally.
Fingers crossed Lynch versus Banks has a more clear and definitive ending than Rollins versus Reigns. Due to how WWE does its drafts (three picks to Raw and two to SmackDown) it's hard to imagine how they would go about structuring things if Banks win and Team Blue picks first. We're also hoping WWE doesn't accidentally/lazily report the order Superstars will be picked before Raw as it did with SmackDown.
