The first round of the 2020 WWE Draft is over.
This year’s WWE Draft kicked off with the company’s two world champions, WWE Champion Drew McIntyre and Universal Champion Roman Reigns, being drafted to Raw and SmackDown, respectively which meant there were no major titleholders switching brands.

This is the second straight draft in which Reigns was SmackDown’s first overall pick. Reigns returned to SmackDown earlier this summer and won the Universal Championship at the Payback pay-per-view.
As far as the other picks in the first round, the only major brand change is Seth Rollins, going from Raw to SmackDown as the blue brand’s only other pick in the opening round. Raw selected Raw Women’s Champion Asuka and The Hurt Business in the first round.
