TEN FUTURE STARS OF THE WWE
Article written by Dylan Devine (8/2/20)
In today’s article I will be giving a list of ten wrestlers that I believe have the potential to be future stars in the WWE. I believe these ten wrestlers should be getting established as stars as soon as possible as WWE needs some change.
1) Big E
Since Big E arrived in the WWE he has been very over with the fans. From his time as NXT Champion, Intercontinental Champion, and his time with the New Day. He has fantastic charisma, is great on the mic, and is a great in ring performer. He has the potential to be a top star in the wrestling industry. Now that he’s getting that long awaited single run, it’s time for that well deserved push. Have him take the title off of Braun.
2) Aleister Black
Black has one of the most interesting gimmicks in the WWE and has established himself as one of the best in ring performers in the company. I see no flaws in him and whenever Triple H takes over I can see him giving Black a main title push. They need to start establishing him as a real threat now though.
Over his career Ricochet has proven to be one of the most talented wrestlers in the world. The moves he pulls off and the things he does in the ring are insane. He could use some improvement on his mic skills, but if he improves that I see a big future ahead of him.
4) Finn Balor
Balor has been at the top before as he is a one time Universal Champion, but he is now back in NXT working with some of the younger guys. When he makes his return to Raw or SmackDown, I believe a WWE or Universal Championship run is imminent for him.
5) Keith Lee
Without a doubt Keith Lee is one of the best wrestlers in the WWE. The things he can do in the ring at his size is insane. He’s got terrific charisma and is unmatched in the ring. I believe he is a one of a kind talent, and at some point soon we will all be basking in his glory as WWE Champion.
6) Velveteen Dream
Dream has drawn comparisons to Shawn Michaels and “Macho Man” Randy Savage. That speaks for itself. He has a very interesting gimmick that is very over with fans and has no flaws. He’s great in the ring, on the mic, has fantastic charisma, and knows how to work a crowd. Big things coming for Dream.
7) Adam Cole
The name speaks for itself. One of the best wrestlers in the world currently. He carried NXT as champion for 403 days and put on unforgettable matches with the likes of Johnny Gargano, Velveteen Dream, Daniel Bryan, Keith Lee, and many more. When Triple H takes over I think Cole will be a top guy in the company.
8) Johnny Gargano
Gargano has been killing it on NXT for years now. He’s going to go down as one of NXT’s greatest talents ever and I hope it’s similar for him when he makes his way onto Raw or SmackDown.
9) Mustafa Ali
Ali is a great in ring talent with a fun gimmick that the fans love. He’s one of the most underrated guys in the WWE. I don’t know if he’ll get a main title run, but I definitely think he deserves at least a run as Intercontinental Champion.
10) Tomasso Ciampa
Ciampa has proven to be able to be a top guy as either a face or a heel. That’s a crucial attribute in the WWE. He’s a tremendous in ring talent and there’s not much he can’t do. I see a lot of Randy Orton in him.
