WWE announced a major shakeup as part of its annual draft process. The 2021 draft saw several major names shifted from RAW to SmackDown and vice versa. The final part of the draft took place on the October 4th episode of Monday Night RAW.

Among the major superstars that were moved to RAW from SmackDown included SmackDown Women’s Champion Becky Lynch, who recently traded her title with RAW Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair in a controversial segment on the October 22nd show of the blue brand.

The annual draft is WWE’s system of internal rotation where both RAW and SmackDown exchange talent. This year’s draft also saw several superstars such as Brock Lesnar and Asuka undrafted.

As of now, some of the undrafted WWE superstars are working as “free agents” within the WWE. This means they aren’t exclusive to any brand and can appear on the brand of their choosing unless and until they get picked by either RAW or SmackDown.

That being said, here are the name and current brand affiliation of the superstars that are yet to be drafted, according to PWInsider.

Asuka –  RAW

Bayley – Free Agent

Brock Lesnar – SmackDown

Dakota Kai – NXT

Elias – RAW

Eva Marie – Free Agent

Lacey Evans – Free Agent

Lucha House Party – RAW

This is very interesting because we do have a few free agents floating around. Eva Marie is working on a movie and Lacey Evans is out on maternity leave. Also, Bayley is injured, but she already declared herself a free agent.

The biggest takeaway for many is that Dakota Kai is now back on the NXT roster after a call-up seemed to be a certainty.
