WWE has already confirmed that this year’s Draft will begin October 1 on Friday Night SmackDown in Nashville, TN, and continue on October 4 on Monday Night Raw in Baltimore, Maryland.
According to local commercials airing in Nashville, a six-man tag team match between Drew McIntyre and Raw Tag Team Champions Randy Orton and Matt Riddle at The Bloodline (Universal Champion Roman Reigns & The Usos) will take place in this next episode of Raw.
It’s possible that this is only a dark game as the show will be the second night of the draft and wrestlers from both brands will be there, but it could be broadcast live on TV.

The Bloodline just appeared on last Monday’s Raw episode as WWE wanted to experiment to see if the appearance of their biggest star, Reigns, on the show would result in an increase. An increase has occurred, but as of yet WWE has no future plans on stars appearing on both shows.
As noted, Reigns is locally announced to fight Drew McIntyre in the October 1 episode of Friday Night SmackDown. Our own Paul Davis previously mentioned hearing rumors within WWE that Reigns was likely to stay on SmackDown.
