Following the brand split, WWE.com posted an interesting article highlighting some big-name stars that were yet to be drafted by either brand.
The likes of Triple H, The Rock and The Undertaker were featured and obviously omitted for a reason, as they make Brock Lesnar look like a full-time competitor.
However, there are a few that went under the radar and are rumoured to be making their returns relatively soon, such as Emma.

Ryan Satin of Pro Wrestling Sheet previously reported that Luke Harper had been cleared to return to the ring, having been out of action since March.
Prior to WWE Backlash, he was training at the WWE Performance Centre before he was given the heads-up to get back on the road.
Now WrestleZone are reporting that the former Intercontinental Champion is being advertised for numerous Raw live events.
That’s a massive indicator as to where he’ll be competing when he makes his return to television, and if he’s needed, we may even see that at Clash of Champions on Sunday.
HARPER TO RAW?
If that’s the case and he does end up on Monday night’s rather than Tuesday’s, then that does effectively put an end to the four-man Wyatt Family, with Braun Strowman already on Raw while Bray Wyatt and Erick Rowan are over on SmackDown Live.
It’s no secret that a man of Harper’s talent and stature could be a tremendous asset to the SmackDown roster, where he can be used to the best of his ability on a two-hour show with a depleted roster, compared to three-hour stacked Raw roster.
The SmackDown writers have done a great job of making almost every male and female star feel relevant since the brand extension, and Harper would succeed by falling in the same bracket.
The move to Raw is a little questionable right now, and his situation will be clearer once his move to either brand is confirmed. But with a move to Raw looking more likely, perhaps returning as Strowman’s biggest threat wouldn’t be a bad way to come back.
