There was no WWE Draft in 2022 and it was rumored that there would be a Draft in 2023 after Wrestlemania 39. There was no announcement on the RAW after Wrestlemania in regards to an upcoming event.
However, Triple H did officially confirm the 2023 Draft during the April 7th 2023 edition of WWE Smackdown. Triple H said it will be taking place “in a few weeks” and every superstar will be eligible.
