The WWE Draft 2021 will be a two-night event – the first part of the draft will take place on October 1 on SmackDown and it will hold the next part on October 4 on Monday Night Raw.

Interestingly, this time, the development brand of WWE will also take part in this year’s draft. Andrew Zarian recently posted a tweet mentioning the involvement of NXT superstars in the WWE 2021 Draft.

Franky Monet

Even though Franky Monet has only just arrived in WWE earlier this year, the former Impact Knockouts Champion remains a big probability for the switch to the main brand. Monet has a lot of experience, as she is still the longest-reigning Impact Knockouts champion.

She has been dominating ever since her NXT in-ring debut on April 13. However, with her recent failed attempt at the NXT Women’s Championship, we might see Monet on the main roster soon.

Johnny Gargano-Former WWE NXT Champion

Johnny Gargano has won it all during his WWE NXT career. Gargano is a former NXT Champion, NXT North American Champion, and NXT Tag-team champion.

Having been so successful in WWE’s development brand, it might be the right time for him to switch to the main roster.

Hit-Row

WWE NXT’s most popular faction is one name that is in contention to make the switch to the main roster. The group comprises of Isaiah “Swerve” Scott, Ashante Adonis, Top Dolla, and B-Fab.

Hit Row has been involved in a feud with Legado del Fantasma for quite some time now. But now, with their feud coming to its near end, we might see the popular NXT faction make the switch to Raw or SmackDown. Hit row will certainly add an extra dimension to the main roster.

Kushida- Former WWE NXT Cruiserweight Champion

The former NXT Cruiserweight Champion is in consideration to become a future WWE superstar. He is best known for his technical prowess and great in-ring work.

Having lost his NXT Cruiserweight Championship to Roderick Strong last week, Kushida did not even appear on NXT 2.0 this week. This might hint at a switch to the main roster for him.

Austin Theory

This NXT superstar has not been seen wrestling in the ring for quite some time. However, he has wrestled in dark matches recently before SmackDown.


With the dark matches being considered as a trial for Theory, we might see him making the switch to the main roster during the WWE Draft 2021.
