I’m surprised – like everyone else – that Bayley wasn’t called up but I do think her time is quickly approaching. Whether as Sasha Bank’s tag team partner at Battleground this Sunday or at SummerSlam, she’s definitely on her way up to the main roster.  I’ve read online how a lot of people are not happy with how the draft turned out, but I’m confused as to why.  These Superstars are the members of their roster, regardless of the brand.  Stephanie, Mick, Shane and Daniel are utilizing those they have and I don’t think The WWE Universe is keeping in mind the vision each brand has for them. Raw and Smackdown Live may have some exciting storylines and rivalries in the works so don’t write this draft off too quickly!  They deserve the opportunity to show us why they made the choices they did as well as why they are the better brand over the other.
