3. Only some injured wrestlers were included in the WWE Draft pool

Scanning the draft pool, it’s immediately evident that there are a few members of the roster eligible for selection that we haven’t seen in quite a while.

Perhaps the most notable name is Charlotte Flair whose name made the draft pool despite not appearing on TV since late June. Flair has been out of action since the early summer with a kayfabe broken collarbone.

In reality, she took some time off to undergo another surgery on her breast implants. Flair previously missed time back in 2018 for a similar issue and was out for a couple of months.

Could Charlotte be nearing her return? It’s certainly possible.

The draft pool also includes everyone’s favorite musician, Elias, who suffered a torn pectoral in May and was written off TV as a result. Some have predicted that he might not be back until next year, but perhaps his inclusion in this pool indicates he’ll be back sooner.

Naomi has also been out for around a month after undergoing minor myomectomy surgery. It should also be noted that The New Day is listed as a collective unit, even with both Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods sidelined.

However, while those superstars all made the list, a few others did not.

The likes of Jinder Mahal, Edge, and Lars Sullivan, who are all out with injuries at the moment, were not included. Others such as Mojo Rawley, Bo Dallas, Samoa Joe, and the Forgotten Sons were all left off for one reason or another as well.

Maybe this isn’t something we should look into very much. But at the same time, it might provide some insight into which injured superstars may be returning in the near future — and which ones won’t.
