WWE has already confirmed that this year’s Draft will start on October 1st on Friday Night SmackDown from Nashville, TN, and continue on the October 4 edition of Monday Night Raw from Baltimore, Maryland.
According to local ads running in Nashville, a six-man tag team match pitting Drew McIntyre and Raw Tag Team Champions Randy Orton & Matt Riddle against The Bloodline (Universal Champion Roman Reigns & The Usos) will take place on this upcoming episode of Raw.
It’s possible this is just a dark match as the show will be the second night of the Draft and wrestlers from both brands will be there, but it could air live on television.

The Bloodline just appeared on this past Monday’s episode of Raw as WWE wanted to experiment to see if having their biggest star, Reigns, appear on the show would lead to an increase. An increase happened, but for now, WWE doesn’t have future plans on stars appearing on both shows.
As noted, Reigns is locally advertised to wrestle Drew McIntyre on the October 1st episode of Friday Night SmackDown. Our own Paul Davis previously mentioned hearing rumors within WWE that Reigns is probably going to stay on SmackDown.
