Dave Meltzer Analyzes WWE’s Post-Draft Roster

One Big Thing

Following the 2024 WWE Draft, Dave Meltzer has assessed the depth of both the “WWE Raw” and “WWE SmackDown” rosters in the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter.

“SmackDown” Roster Breakdown

  • Carmelo Hayes is seen as a strong midcard heel with potential to be an undercard heel
  • Charlotte Flair, Bayley, Naomi, Tiffany Stratton, and Nia Jax are main event-level female talents
  • Roman Reigns and The Rock are likely to join “SmackDown” upon their return
  • Solo Sikoa has an opportunity to elevate himself into a main event heel in Reigns’ absence

“Raw” Roster Breakdown

  • John Cena could potentially land on “Raw” if he returns, due to “SmackDown” being crowded at the top
  • The tag team division has a balance issue, with Authors of Pain being the only male heel duo
  • The Creed Brothers may turn heel at some point to address this imbalance
  • The men’s main event scene is strong, while the women’s division is slightly imbalanced
  • Liv Morgan is seen as a natural babyface by Meltzer

Why It Matters

The WWE Draft has significant implications for the future of both brands. Meltzer’s analysis provides insight into the potential storylines and character developments we can expect in the coming months. The depth and balance of each roster will play a crucial role in determining the success of “Raw” and “SmackDown” going forward.
