WWE Superstar Seth Rollins is now a member of SmackDown after going fourth overall to the blue brand during the 2020 WWE draft on Friday:


The first round of the 2020 #WWEDraft is in the books and #SmackDown makes a huge move by drafting @WWERollins for the first time ever.

The man known as the Monday Night Messiah will need a name change after the switch, which will mark his first time as a member of SmackDown.


Friday Night Rollins?
Friday Night Messiah?
The Savior of SmackDown?

No matter what you want to call him, @WWERollins is officially #SmackDown bound for the first time ever! #WWEDraft

Rollins was the fourth wrestler selected on Friday’s SmackDown episode.

WWE champion Drew McIntyre went No. 1 overall and stayed on Raw. Universal champion Roman Reigns went second and stuck with SmackDown.

Raw Women’s champion Asuka was up next, and she’ll stay on Monday nights.

Rollins’ move marked the evening’s first brand switch.

The 34-year-old has been on the main roster since November 2012, when he debuted as a member of The Shield alongside Dean Ambrose (now Jon Moxley in AEW) and Reigns.

Rollins is a two-time WWE champion and two-time Universal champion.
