To find the answers to these questions, please scroll down this mock draft list of the top 8 picks for each brand.

The event would definitely be incomplete without the WWE World Heavyweight Champion, Dean Ambrose himself!

Raw Pick #2: Roman Reigns

Raw Pick #2: Roman Reigns

Stephanie McMahon would definitely want WWE World Heavyweight Championship on RAW to be on her side. And with Lesnar and Reigns together on her side, the chances would rise for sure.

Smackdown Pick #3: AJ Styles

Smackdown Pick #3: AJ Styles

Shane McMahon would want the audience to witness some really interesting fight, and what would be better than one between AJ Styles and Shane's pick #2 John Cena.

Raw Pick #3: Seth Rollins

Raw Pick #3: Seth Rollins

With Reigns and Rollins on her side, Stephanie will have a two-third chance the WWE World Heavyweight Championship from Dean Ambrose.

Smackdown Pick #4: The New Day

Undoubtedly, Kofi Kingston, Big E, and Xavier Woods were built for Smackdown, and Shane (however unwilling to have The New Day on board with him) knows it.

Raw Pick #4: Charlotte

Raw Pick #4: Charlotte

Stephanie wouldn't be leaving a chance to take the credit for Divas Revolution by bringing in WWE Women's Champion Charlotte into the game. That would make her the first ever female wrestler to take part in the draft.

Smackdown Pick #5: Rusev

Smackdown Pick #5: Rusev

The United States championship winner Rusev will be Shane's choice for sure as a one-time challenger and he would do the needed damage to his opponents as well. 

Raw Pick #5: Kevin Owens

Raw Pick #5: Kevin Owens

Kevin Owens' fights with Seth Rollins or Roman Reigns would be very tempting to watch. Moreover, Stephanie wouldn't want to secure the Intercontinental championship for RAW as well!

Smackdown Pick #6: The Wyatt Family

Smackdown Pick #6: The Wyatt Family

With the Wyatt family onboard, Shane McMahon would boost up Smackdown with a tag team division and also, Ambrose, Styles and Cena would have someone to look up to during tough times in the ring.

Raw Pick #6: Enzo and Cass

Raw Pick #6: Enzo and Cass

Stephanie McMahon would be tempted to have a tag team herself, following her brother. They two are really awesome on the ring and the mic as well, and since Raw is a lot about fights on the mic, Enzo will be giving every tough competition to the other wrestlers.

Smackdown Pick #7: Becky Lynch

Smackdown Pick #7: Becky Lynch

With the World Heavyweight champion, United States champion and the Tag team champions already on his side, Shane would be building the women's division with Becky Lynch.

Raw Pick #7: The Miz

Raw Pick #7: The Miz

Stephanie really wouldn't wanna miss the Intercontinental champion to come to Raw since that would put a lot of pressure on the other wrestlers to snatch the title from The Miz.

Smackdown Pick #8: Sasha Banks

Smackdown Pick #8: Sasha Banks

Shane would choose Becky Lynch to be the face but pick Sasha Banks to be The Boss on Tuesday nights. After suffering  a concussion, Banks would finally be back i the rigs after months.

Raw Pick #8: Bayley

Raw Pick #8: Bayley

Stephanie would want some glamour for Raw as well and what would be better than having Bayley, and exciting fresh challenger for Charlotte. She'd make history by being picked up for the first draft directly out of NXT.
