12 WWE Superstars Without Direction Following WrestleMania 33

Looking for something new.


As the post-Wrestlemania buzz dies down following an absorbing week of Orlando magic, all attention has quickly moved to Monday's 'Superstar Shake-up' that could see huge movements of talent between the Raw and Smackdown Live! rosters.

In the original Brand Extension, WWE always made huge deals of their 'draft' shows, and whilst the exact nature of the shake-up has been left typically vague, it's almost a certainty that some huge names will switch nights, opening up a plethora of new opportunities for the new opponents in front of them and the ones they leave behind.

Pleasingly, the sense of finality around several key WrestleMania contests has left many performers without much to do in the aftermath, so the timing of the annual shifts couldn't be better.

However, even for those not impacted by the outcome the movements, this time of year is perfect to refocus and re-energise for the next twelve months ahead. All performers are now simultaneously as far away and as close to WrestleMania 34 as they'll ever be, and new beginnings often kickstart that long ascent to the promised land.

Assessing who would benefit from new shows, new opponents, new attitudes or all of the above, here are 12 superstars without direction following WrestleMania 33.
