I pose to you this question...does there need to be a draft in 2017?

In a perfect world I would only have superstars switch shows due to trades and/or contracts running.

NXT Superstars would be called up after we see Daniel Bryan or Mick Foley show up at NXT events to do scouting. Have them compete for the rights to sign NXT Stars. 

I didn't have a real problem with the initial draft because there had to be something in place to divide the roster, but the roster is now divided already and it doesn't make sense to me to have an arbitrary draft to change this up with groups of people rather than swapping a piece here and there.

Just my two cents.

As for your draft...

This kind of draft really would shake things up and give us a new set of match ups for the year. Not bad at all.

Yes , Why you may ask ?

if we had a trade between Raw and SD how many Superstars will they trade ? two or three ? Will that affect anything ? i don't think so

Raw and Smackdown are supposedly seen as seperate brands so there should be no need to ever have a draft ever again.

They aren't in competition with eachother if once a year the rosters are randomly changed again so we have to get used to remembering what show people are now on.

I don't mind us seeing the shows turn up at NXT tapings for scouting or both sides trading a couple of names between them to slightly change both rosters.

Just not massive wholesale once a year changes just so they can advertise a draft show.

No need for a raft all that will happen if a star on SD is red hot they will go to RAW whilst RAW will send a superstar who isn't where they should be in terms of being over

See I think a annual draft is definitely needed. With a split roster each brand doesn't have the depth that it had when all talent could work both shows, so a yearly shake up is needed to freshen things up and to stop feuds and matches becoming stale and repetitive. There doesn't need to be a huge amount of changes, maybe 6 drafts per brand?

Wholesale changes just makes it more difficult for fans to remember what brand everyone is on.

I like to see Raw and Smackdown like sport teams as in that's your 'squad' and if you want to add to it then trade with the other team but no random draft change.

A storyline could easily be made where for example Samoa Joe turns up at both Raw and Smackdown sits in the crowd and both brands are trying for weeks to sign him, thus making him a bigger star before his eventual brand is even decided.

I partially agree but the problem for me is Smackdown just lacks the depth in its roster to retain a interesting product over a long period of time, the only way for the blue brand to keep things fresh and entertaining would be to have a heavy influx of NXT talent. Guys like Samoa Joe, Bobby Roode and Shinsuke Nakamura would be great additions.

I said it before the draft that I would have liked to have seen Raw become the Superstar heavy brand with guys like Cena, Orton, Wyatt, all three Shield members etc, while Smackdown could have been the more smarky wrestling show with guys like Styles, Balor, Zayn, Cesaro and Owens.

This could still happen as well as a yearly draft as there is nothing to stop WWE running storylines where a talent's contract is up etc and Raw and Smackdown both try and secure the services of the talent in question, WWE ran similar angles during the original draft with both Scott Steiner and Brock Lesnar if I remember right.

Another idea would be a yearly PPV where Raw and Smackdown talent face off in matches with draft picks at stake?
