WWE saw their latest Draft unfold these past few weeks and it saw several teams split up in the mean time.
Veer and Shanky, T-Bar and Mace, Natalya and Tamina, Shotzi and Tegan Nox were all split in the draft. When people within the company pushed for several teams to remain together, we're told only AJ Styles and Omos didn't fall upon deaf ears, which WrestleVotes posted about on several weeks ago.
Fightful heard of instances where people even asked the sense in drafting individuals instead of teams within a story perspective, and were told that it wasn't that important. When asked on if it'd be followed up on during the show, as of last week, those that inquired were told that hadn't been determined yet. There were teams that actually learned on social media that they would be split up.
