In 2017, WWE ditched the "Draft" name, less than a year after reintroducing the brand extension, and was renamed the Superstar Shake-Up. This came after rumors of Vince McMahon apparently hating the word "draft", hence why the name change was done.

2018–2019

In 2019, WWE once again reintroduced the "WWE Draft" name when it was announced that the Wild Card Rule would be discontinued after being introduced in May, and the draft would be returning the week after SmackDown made it's move to FOX, with both the blue brand, and RAW once again having unique rosters.
