The World Wrestling Entertainment roster is as deep as the company has had in years. Names such as John Cena, Randy Orton, Seth Rollins, Daniel Bryan and Roman Reigns make up main event cards for the company, and Brock Lesnar resigning with the WWE before WrestleMania 31 gave the organization the top draw in sports entertainment for the next several years at least. Add in the group of talent that is found in the NXT developmental territory, and all indications are that the future is bright for the WWE as it pertains to in-ring talent and performers who will be able to delight crowds.

Just as with any professional sports franchise or entity, the WWE roster could always be improved in one way or another. That could involve those who scout for the company reaching out to younger stars who feature for independent wrestling scenes or who make their names competing overseas. There are also multiple cases of wrestlers who have left the WWE for one reason or another who could, if given another shot by the organization, help the company out and draw ratings and pay-per-view buys if featured in WWE contests. Whether or not those people will ever make a return to the WWE could be dependent on if certain real-life feuds are put to bed for good.

Multiple performers who currently work for Total Nonstop Action Wrestling could be welcomed back to the WWE with open arms if they and the company would agree to terms that would make such a reunion possible. Last but certainly not least is an individual who fled the WWE early on in 2014 because of several factors, a man who has since claimed that he is retired as a professional wrestler and who is now pursuing a career as a mixed martial arts fighter. He has stated on multiple occasions that he would not return to the WWE, but that could change if the right offer were to come around.

1 CM Punk

The “Straightedge Superstar” made headlines when he walked out of the WWE in 2014. Punk then explained why he made that decision during what became a famous podcast episode hosted by his friend Colt Cabana over Thanksgiving holiday, and it is now hardly a secret that he and the WWE are not on speaking terms. While it is being reported that Punk is taking his leap into the Ultimate Fighting Championship very seriously, the reality of the situation is that he is only going to accomplish so much as a pro fighter. The WWE sorely misses Punk, a performer who can get the job done in the ring and on the mic.
