All the wrestlers who weren’t drafted this year

With the 2021 WWE Draft in the books, and rosters set for both Monday Night Raw and Friday Night SmackDown, it’s time to take a look at who wasn’t chosen on either of the two nights of picks. This includes all the supplemental picks made on Talking Smack and Raw Talk.

Per WWE’s own rules, these wrestlers are all considered free agents.

From looking at the roster pages on for both Raw and SmackDown, here are all the wrestlers who weren’t selected by either brand:

  • Brock Lesnar
  • Goldberg
  • Asuka
  • Elias
  • Eva Marie
  • Lacey Evans
  • Gran Metalik
  • Lince Dorado
  • MVP
  • Slapjack
  • Titus O’Neil
  • Bayley
  • Maryse

It should be noted it seems clear the WWE website isn’t fully updated yet, as some moves that were announced have yet to be reflected on said roster pages, though the majority have been changed over.

For what it’s worth, Lesnar, Asuka, Elias, Eva Marie, Gran Metalik, Lacey Evans, Lince Dorado, MVP, Slapjack, and Titus O’Neil are all listed under the Raw roster page while Bayley and Maryse are listed under the SmackDown roster page.

Goldberg, for his part, isn’t listed on either.

Many of these are easy to explain, like the part-timers, or those who are out injured, or are inactive, or asked to be released, or having a child. Then you have the likes of Eva Marie, who is only selling an injury and was at Raw tonight prepared for something, Asuka, who has simply gone missing (though she did recently get her teeth fixed), Elias, who had a character turn coming that was seemingly forgotten about, and Slapjack, who is apparently lost somewhere since RETRIBUTION disbanded.

We’ll likely get answers soon enough.
