Night one of the WWE Draft 2024 has concluded and we've got the full list of moves that transpired this evening.

Tonight's episode of Friday Night SmackDown emanated from the Heritage Bank Center in Cincinnati, OH. Popular superstars from all three WWE brands were eligible for tonight's draft. There were some exceptions, such as a select group of injured talents and reigning champions, but that doesn't mean there wasn't some substantial movement within the WWE Universe.

So, who has made the jump and who is staying put?


WWE Chief Content Officer Paul "Triple H" Levesque made his way out and announced the first round of draft picks along with the Undisputed WWE Champion Cody Rhodes.

The first pick of the night belonged to SmackDown, and the "EST" Bianca Belair remains on the SmackDown brand. Monday Night Raw then decided to keep Jey Uso on the red brand for its first pick.

SmackDown then went with former WWE NXT Champion Carmelo Hayes as the brand's second pick, while Raw opted to keep Seth Rollins on its roster.

Round two saw the blue brand maintain the rights of Randy Orton. Monday Night Raw snagged Bron Breakker. SmackDown then plucked Nia Jax from Raw, while the red brand retained Liv Morgan. In round three, the blue brand kept LA Knight and The Bloodline. Raw kept Ricochet and Sheamus.

Finally, SmackDown kept AJ Styles and grabbed Andrade from Raw. The red brand answered by retaining Alpha Academy and pulling off the shocker of the night by drafting the now former NXT talent Kiana James.
