Zarian has previously reported that WWE has big plans for the draft this year in order to shake up the rosters. WWE has drawn some critcism for having stale rosters throughout the pandemic, so the company might use the draft in an attempt to correct this issue,
WrestleZone will provide more details as they become available.
