WWE Roster 2020 Superstars List for Raw, SmackDown, NXT & More

Posted by Anthony Mango Wednesday, July 22, 2020

Which WWE Superstars were on the roster in 2020? Check out this definitive list of every wrestler who was on the Raw, SmackDown, NXT, NXT UK or 205 Live roster as well as those who were free agents and WWE Performance Center recruits as well as those who were managers, valets or authority figures rather than wrestlers.

Superstars in gold with an asterisk * indicates this superstar was bumped up to the "main roster" of Raw and SmackDown at some point this year

Italics indicate when a superstar was a newcomer to WWE this year

This list will be updated to reflect any changes, meaning if someone is traded to a different roster, the year will end with wherever they were last seen.

FAMILY OF NXT ROSTERS 2020:

There is considerable crossover between NXT, NXT UK, 205 Live and the Performance Center recruits. All wrestlers under 205 lbs can participate on 205 Live, but only some are labeled as part of that roster, oddly. NXT and NXT UK have a mostly shared roster, despite being separate, and the Performance Center feeds all three shows to varying degrees. For the sake of some organization, these are broken down as best they can be, rather than all being lumped together in the same NXT umbrella category, despite being in the same family.
