Want to keep track of all the WWE trades? You're in luck. Fightful will now keep a running list here in our resources section to go along with the updated rosters, contracts and inactive lists.
Please note that this list does not include historical releases or NXT call-ups from a company. Instead, only "trades" and brand switches will be listed here. We will eventually have a page with historical WWE releases listed.
- Brock Lesnar moved from Smackdown to Raw after being drafted to Smackdown. On November 1, 2019 Lesnar "quit" Smackdown "because he could."
