For months, WWE had hyped July 19 as the day when the company's talent would be split across brand lines. Now that the first Smackdown Live and the WWE Network post-show special are in the books, the rosters for both Raw and Smackdown have been finalized.
With Stephanie McMahon and Mick Foley helming Raw and Shane McMahon and Daniel Bryan doing the honors for Smackdown, the following rosters were chosen, in order of selection:

Thus far, there have been no announcements made regarding who will do commentary for Raw and Smackdown. The only eligible star who was not drafted by either brand was Heath Slater, who was shown sitting by himself in the locker room at the end of the WWE Network special.
