WWE Rumor: Reason behind Undertaker and Triple H’s absence from the WWE Draft

Arindam Paul / 10 August 2016

WWE Draft is over and it turned the biggest wrestling promotion in the world upside down. As the fans wanted it for a long-time WWE came up with the idea of the brand split and a brand extension Draft. The event saw a huge success and spit up the roster for good between the Red and Blue brand.
WWE Raw has grabbed superstars like Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns, Brock Lesnar, Charlotte, Finn Balor etc. whereas Smackdown managed to grab top stars like WWE Champion Dean Ambrose, John Cena, AJ Styles, Randy Orton, Bray Wyatt etc. Apart from these superstars, plenty of names are rumored for future returns among which names like Rhyno, Zinder Mahal already showed up on Smackdown or Raw to make things more interesting.
Though there are a few questions still unanswered to the WWE fans and one of them is the absence of Undertaker and Triple H’s name from the WWE roster members. According to reports from dailywrestlingnews.com, The Deadman was approached by the creative heads to be involved in the WWE Draft. But as reported earlier, Undertaker is still unmoved from the fact that he’s finished with his wrestling career.

Though, the chairman of the board, Vince McMahon is still arguing with to make him agree for future appearances. Since Taker is still in contract with the company, they could have used his name anyway. But, that would have made least sense since there’s no surety of him showing up in near future.
As for Triple H, the COO of the company was also supposed to be involved in the WWE Draft but removed from the list for the very same reason like Undertaker. The Game has renewed his wrestling contract till 2019 after this year’s Wrestlemania 32 and therefore, should be seen in a matchup at next year’s Wrestlemania 33 from Orlando, Florida. The rumor mill suggests that his opponent may very well turn out to be none other than Seth Rollins.
