According to several backstage sources, WWE NXT will be a major part of WWE Draft 2021 on tonight’s episode of WWE SmackDown.
Wrestling Observer Newsletter already reported several days before the draft that several picks haven’t been set but WWE NXT superstars will play a major role in it.
People at the promotion believe that Dakota Kai, Xia Li, and Aliyah are top female NXT contenders that will make their move to the main roster. Their names have been rumored for quite a while now as they have been working in the dark matches as well.
Also, the news broke out that WWE wants a Chinese star on their roster especially after the success of UFC had Zhang Weili hold the Women’s Strawweight title. As a result, the chances are really great that Xia Li will be drafted to the main roster.
The preview of tonight’s episode of SmackDown makes it clear that no tag team is safe, and there is no guarantee that they would stay together. It is applicable for the Women’s tag team champions, Nikki ASH and Rhea Ripley as well.
The entire preview for tonight’s episode of SmackDown reads, “Which Superstars are about to make the jump from Raw to SmackDown? Who is heading from Friday night to Monday night? No titleholder’s place is safe! The no-tag team is guaranteed to stay together! The only thing certain is that nothing will stay the same!”
