WWE had announced prior to the preview special of WWE Backstage that Triple H will be revealing an additional draft trade which has been made after the initial draft concluded on this week’s episode of Raw.

The former World Champion then appeared on the show and revealed that the new Executive Director of SmackDown, Bruce Prichard has managed to acquire former Women’s Tag Team Champions Alexa Bliss and Nikki Cross for his show.

Though it wasn’t revealed which stars Raw will be getting in exchange for the two female stars and instead, it was said that the trade has been made in exchange for some “future draft picks.”

Both Alexa Bliss and Nikki Cross were originally chosen by USA Network for Raw but the two were drafted as singles competitors, meaning that the USA Executives exhausted an extra draft pick on the duo just to trade them back to SmackDown Live.

The interview also featured Triple H‘s comment on the appointment of Bruce Prichard as the new Executive Director of SmackDown Live after the release of Eric Bischoff.

While H did not comment on the departure of the former WCW President, he did say that he is excited for Prichard to take on the role.
