With WrestleMania weekend fully under way now, the focus is very much on Sunday’s big event, but which WWE Superstars are currently not booked for the show?
Even though WrestleMania 35 is set to be the longest WWE PPV in company history, there are still a lot of wrestlers on the roster who aren’t booked for the show at all.
The following female Superstars who are officially on the WWE roster page aren’t booked for the event- Alicia Fox, Lacey Evans, Ember Moon (injured), Maryse (pregnant), The Bella Twins (retired).
Alicia Fox is in New York City for AXXESS, but she has been kept out of the ring since February, due to the incident that led to Arn Anderson being fired, Lacey Evans is also in the area.
At the moment, WWE has 13 wrestlers announced for the Women’s Battle Royal, so more names are expected to fill that match out. Last year WWE had 20 participants in the match, so Fox, Evans, and some surprises could be used for that.
In terms of the male roster there is a lot more talent not booked for the show, with a large portion of the 205 Live roster not having a spot right now.
The following aren’t booked: Akira Tozawa, Eric Young, Killian Dain, Alexander Wolfe, Ariya Daivari, Big E, Xavier Woods, Bray Wyatt, Cedric Alexander, Dolph Ziggler, Dean Ambrose, Drew Gulak, Primo, Epico, Jack Gallagher, Goldust, Harper, John Cena, Johnny Gargano, Kevin Owens, Kane, Lio Rush (who will likely valet for Bobby Lashley), Mark Andrews, Mike Kanellis, Mojo Rawley, Noam Dar, R-Truth, Rezar, Rowan, The Singh Brothers, Brian Kendrick, The Undertaker, Sami Zayn (injured, returning imminently), Sin Cara (injured, returning imminently), Aiden English (205 Live announcer), Akam (injured), Jason Jordan (injured).
WWE currently has 28 wrestlers announced for the Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal, and previously 30 people have competed in that match, so WWE is likely to add more to it, possibly having more than 30 compete.
Names such as John Cena and The Undertaker have been spotted in New York and have been rumored for various different roles on the show, but they are expected to appear in some capacity.
Other names who are close to an in-ring return such as Bray Wyatt and Sami Zayn could possibly be held off until the post-WrestleMania Raw and SmackDown. Ultimately, it’s unlikely that all of those names will be used at WrestleMania, as there is only so many spots on the card.
