United States: LIVE, Monday Night, July 11th, at 8/7c on the USA Network
United Kingdom: Tuesday Morning, July 12th, at 1AM on SkySportsHD3

Joe Louis Arena
Detroit, Michigan

*the entire WWE locker room is shown backstage looking at a big monitor*

Michael Cole: Welcome everyone to Monday Night Raw, episode #1207. We are looking now at the locker room where all the superstars are looking on as this tension filled night begins to unfold. It's the WWE Draft. They're all wondering as much as we are, where will everyone be? Who's going to Raw, and who's going to SmackDown. We find out tonight.

*Shane and Stephanie are then shown staring down at each other in the interview area*

Vince McMahon: Last week, I said that we’re gonna come to Raw tonight and shake things up, and by God, that’s what we’re gonna do. Because tonight, tonight will be the return of the Draft Lottery. And this is the way that it’s gonna go down. Shane, you’re going to be representing Raw. Stephanie, you’re going to represent SmackDown. You both will have bins full of WWE superstars, announcers, interviewers, everybody that is signed to a WWE contract, is able to be drafted. You both will be able to pick from all of them. There will be a total of 20 picks altogether. At the end of the night, if you're not satisfied with your picks, no problem, you can trade anyone you wish, anyone on the roster, as long as you do so by 12 midnight, tonight. That's the deadline. At the end of the night, we're gonna have a brand new SmackDown, a brand new Raw, and a brand new WWE. Any questions. 

Stephanie McMahon: Well dad (crowd boos), there is one for you, clearly you've given consideration to those who are in NXT, those who are not with us this evening, and those who are on the injured list. Austin Aries, Samoa Joe, Shinsuke Nakamura, Finn Bálor, Bayley, Neville, Bray Wyatt, Luke Harper. Clearly they're exempt.

Vince McMahon: Maybe I didn't make myself clear. No one is exempt.No one on this entire roster is exempt from this draft lottery.  I don't even care if the person is not here tonight, such as Paul Heyman, such as Neville, such as Bray Wyatt, they're not here, that's too bad. They're all still part of the draft. It doesn't matter. Alright? Everyone is eligible. Shane, Stephanie, good luck.

Shane and Stephanie: Thanks, dad. *both reach hands out for hand shake, Vince just walks away, Shane and Stephanie go back to staring each other down.*

Michael Cole: It is a historic night on Monday Night Raw, and we are live from the sold out Joe Louis Arena in Detroit, Michigan, where tonight, the first WWE Draft Lottery in five years will be held in the biggest shake-up in WWE history. Hello again, everybody, I'm Michael Cole alongside JBL where tonight, we find out who will be joining us Monday nights on Raw

JBL: Well Michael, tension is running high in the WWE locker room, and for good reason, because quite frankly, this is gonna be a career changing night for, well, whatever Superstars' names get picked in that draft lottery tonight. Who knows, the two of us could get separated, as we just heard from Mr. McMahon, we're both eligible to be drafted to either Raw or SmackDown. I'm excited, and I'm ready.

Michael Cole: It's all about Raw, it's all about SmackDown, speaking of which, we have Mauro Ranallo and Corey Graves right next to us at ringside.

Mauro Ranallo: Well thank you, gentlemen. It's a privilege to be here with you tonight, it's a historic night indeed, and we are wondering, Corey, what Superstars will be joining us Tuesday nights on SmackDown.

Corey Graves: I can't wait, Mauro, I'm amped up, fired up, check it out, SmackDown and Raw will change forever, starting tonight.

*crowd cheers, Shane salutes the crowd and dances*

Lilian Garcia: Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome, Raw General Manager, Shane McMahon

*he goes to his tumbler*

*crowd boos, she salutes the crowd*

Lilian Garcia: And now here to make the first pick of the Draft Lottery, SmackDown's General Manager, Stephanie McMahon

*she goes to her tumbler*

Stephanie McMahon: Ladies and gentlemen, I am the general manager of the premier brand in World Wrestling Entertainment, SmackDown. It is now time for SmackDown to procure it's very first Superstar.

*spins the tumbler, and pulls a ball out*

JBL: The joy on Stephanie's face right now, she is loving this.

*Stephanie smiles as she looks at the name*

Stephanie: (sarcastically) Mr. Regal, wherever you are, I'm so terribly sorry, but SmackDown has to make the announcement that one of the premier tag teams on NXT has been broken up. 

Ladies and gentlemen, SmackDown hereby selects and is very pleased to welcome.....

Scott Dawson!

*some cheering and some booing*

*a screen showing the statistics* 

Mauro Ranallo: I'll tell you, that's a great start for SmackDown, take a look at the statistics at one of the best young upstarts that NXT has had to offer, one of the most dominant tag teams in NXT next to The Ascension

Corey Graves: This young athlete, this young great athlete, got a tremendous upside, tremendous for us to have on SmackDown.

Mauro Ranallo: You know, Dawson, he had a lengthy NXT Tag Team title run alongside Dash Wilder, who once made up The Revival, but not anymore.

Corey Graves: What he has, he's got potential, for WWE, for the growth of SmackDown, and now he's a singles competitor as opposed to being part of a tag team

Mauro Ranallo: Well it's going to be an interesting adjustment for Rene Dupree to be a singles competitor on SmackDown

*Dawson comes out of the curtain*

and there he is. 

Corey Graves: Look at him

Mauro Ranallo: Great condition, for this Scott Dawson, getting his picture taken with Stephanie McMahon. 

*NXT chants*

A life altering evening, a career changing evening, as this crowd here in Detroit chanting NXT, as we all wonder what other superstars will be joining us tonight on SmackDown.

Corey Graves: I can only imagine all the names that are available to come to SmackDown. Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose, John Cena, Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn, "The Beast Incarnate" Brock Lesnar, 

Mauro Ranallo: How about John Cena, Randy Orton, Chris Jericho, Rusev, Kane, and the Big Show. Just an amazing amount of talent available to have with us every Tuesday night on SmackDown. 

We'll be right back as we have to take a commercial break, as the draft continues, and Scott Dawson in action, next. 

*to be continued*
