WWE Raw results, recap, grades: Women’s title No. 1 contender emerges as WWE Draft concludes

The second night of the WWE Draft tends to be a little strange with the rosters in a state of disarray and very few storylines playing out as the dust continues to settle. That was largely the case again on Monday night with several matches featuring talent from both brands.

While this did produce a few good matches, most notably Jeff Hardy vs. AJ Styles vs. Seth Rollins, it also made for a very scattershot show that felt largely inconsequential less than two weeks out from the Hell in a Cell pay-per-view. But the draft is now complete, for better or worse, and fans can start to see the skeleton of the next year of WWE programming.

The WWE Draft kicks off Friday night on WWE SmackDown as the centerpiece of a loaded offering. After this week, much will be different on the blue brand — from the locker room makeup to the fates of some of the biggest SmackDown superstars.

The headlining match of the night will see Bayley defending the SmackDown women’s championship against former best friend Sasha Banks, weeks after a violent attack executed by the champion. Bayley continued to blindside Banks after the duo split, but Banks finally had enough and fired her own return shots, leading to a pay-per-view main event-quality match being set up to go down live on Fox from the ThunderDome in Orlando.

How Blackhawks’ draft pick Drew Commesso’s goaltending style is like Corey Crawford’s

It’s possible the Blackhawks’ second-round pick in the 2020 NHL Draft, goalie Drew Commesso, will always share a connection with Corey Crawford.

The Hawks’ need to select a goalie, which is likely the reason they attempted to trade up in the first round this year, is due to Crawford’s short-term future with the team. The two-time Stanley Cup champ, currently an unrestricted¬†free agent, said if he stays in Chicago a one or two-year deal would best suit him.

It was previously reported the Hawks offered the 35-year-old netminder a one-year deal, but an agreement has yet to be reached with free agency opening up on Friday at 11 a.m. CT. The Blackhawks recently came into a surplus of cap space that should allow them to extend Crawford, but another starter would still be needed after he shortly departs.
