Following Raw, additional roster moves were made on the WWE Network show, Raw Talk. They were as follows:

Thoughts: So, I guess they quietly forgot their own rule of "for every 2 picks Smackdown gets, Raw gets 3" based on the imbalance in the supplemental draft. Nothing earth shattering as far as the roster moves. Interesting the main players that are staying put. Of the bigger names moved, they've ensured to include their spouses as well now that WWE is back on the road, such as Becky & Seth, and Bianca & Montez Ford. In years past, WWE were happy to screw with couples and put them on separate brands.

The more surprising picks happened down the line. Gable Steveson getting drafted when I assume he's done very minimal wrestling training to this point is a shock. Either he's progressing at a Kurt Angle/Brock Lesnar- like rate, or WWE just wanted to grab headlines close to the Olympics and we won't see him for a while. Guessing the latter. On a smaller scale, Ridge Holland getting called up after such a short time on NXT. I don't know how developed he is, but he's Vince's type, and Bron Breakker is filling the "hoss" role in NXT 2.0.
