With the WWE Draft upon us, all eyes have turned to what the rosters look like come next week.

Who will be wrestling on Raw? Who will be wrestling on SmackDown? Where will John Cena be? Where will Dean Ambrose be? Big questions that are all currently unanswered.

However, following WWE's release of the rules for the Draft, some more questions have been raised. Questions regarding absent names.

The WWE released important rules regarding the Draft and accompanied them with a full list of male talent, Tag Teams, and female talent, that were available to be drafted.

However, the long lists missed out certain names and nine in particular have been noticed.

The two big names being missed off the list are Triple H and The Undertaker.

It's believed Triple H will have more of an off-screen role from now on within the WWE, possibly being the Raw general manager given the fact Stephanie McMahon is the commissioner, but with his name being absent from the Draft list, maybe it's an indication that his wrestling days are over.

The same can be said for The Undertaker. Given the fact he's only wrestled a couple of times a year for the previous few years, he could be absent for the fact he's not a full-time wrestler.

Those two are the big names absent, and they are missing for good reason, however, there are seven more names that have not been included which have raised eyebrows.

Emma, Luke Harper, Nikki Bella, Tamina, Tyson Kid, Ryback, and Rosa Mendes are all absent from the Draft lists raising questions about their futures with the company.

The first five are currently sidelined with injuries, and that could be why they are missing, which may result in them being drafted once they return to TV, but for Ryback and Rosa Mendes, there are question marks hanging over their future.

Ryback has been in hot water ever since shooting on the company for it's pay scheme, whilst Rosa has just given birth, so she could be absent for maternity leave and that alone.

However, the decision to exclude them from the draft list has certainly raised eyebrows and caught the attentions of the WWE universe.

Should we make anything from these names being excluded? Leave us YOUR thoughts in the comment section below!
