The 2019 WWE draft concluded on last night's Raw and while the grand roster reshuffle looks like it was moderately successful in revitalising a couple of stagnating talent pools, it's hard to feel too positive about the way things went down.

This is the first Draft or Superstar Shake-Up in many a year that may have created more problems than it solved. While the feeling coming out of the last few examples was largely positive, this one has left SmackDown light on women, Raw light on tag teams, sent Bray Wyatt to Friday nights despite his ongoing feud with Raw's top champion, split R-Truth and Carmella, thrown Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair back together, and only really shifted a handful of truly big names. A shame, as this was a huge opportunity for the promotion to completely reshape Raw and SmackDown for this new season of programming.

But the 2019 WWE draft wasn't a total bust. The aforementioned problems can't be ignored, but the switch-ups should bring a number of positive changes up and down the card, provided creative holds steady.

Let's take a look at how the draft changed things for the better...
