Backstage news regarding WWE teams being split up in the 2021 Draft

Several WWE tag teams were broken up in the 2021 WWE Draft including Veer/Shanky, Mace/T-Bar, Shotzi/Nox, and Natalya/Tamina Snuka.

According to Fightful Select, there were teams that didn’t know about being split up until Draft announcements were made on social media. Fightful noted the following…

“Fightful heard of instances where people even asked the sense in drafting individuals instead of teams within a story perspective, and were told that it wasn’t that important. When asked on if it’d be followed up on during the show, as of last week, those that inquired were told that hadn’t been determined yet. There were teams that actually learned on social media that they would be split up.”

WWE had reportedly considered splitting up AJ Styles/Omos and the Street Profits as well but decided against doing so.
