With the 2019 WWE Draft in the rear-view mirror, it's time to take a look at how the end results matched up with the hopes of WWE RAW Executive Director Paul Heyman, who as noted, had his eyes set on a couple of specific WWE Superstars heading into the draft.
According to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter at F4WOnline.com, Heyman pretty much got all the wrestlers he wanted on RAW with the exception of Brock Lesnar.
Lesnar being on SmackDown was thought to be an “executive decision” made by WWE officials as the person FOX really wanted, Ronda Rousey, is currently away from WWE, leaving "The Beast Incarnate" as their second top choice.
