The Future Is Bright: Top 10 WWE Superstars Who Will Become Main Event Players

1 of 11

    Between the past two years or so, we've seen the likes of Shawn Michaels, The Undertaker, Chris Jericho, Batista, Edge, and Triple H getting released, retiring, or becoming an inactive member of the WWE roster.

    The fact that all these main-eventers no longer appear on television currently can only mean one thing, new main eventers.

    WWE's been trying lately to push fresh talent and it's worked nicely with Alberto Del Rio and The Miz who, by the way, I didn't put on the list because they're already getting main-event pushes.

    This slideshow is to list who I feel is WWE's future along with who I feel will be getting a main-event push sooner or later.

    Also, all the superstars that are on this list are superstars that never won the World Heavyweight Championship or the WWE Championship so far.

    Enjoy the read and feel free to leave a comment.

10. Ezekiel Jackson

    Ezeikel Jackson's impressive size and power and is one reason that Vince would definitely not mind giving him a push.

    Now that he's no longer a part of The Corre, I feel that he has great potential to become one of Smackdown's main-eventers.

    If WWE books his feud with Wade Barrett correctly, there's a high chance that Big Zeke could become the No. 2 face on Smackdown, besides Randy Orton of course.

     

     

9. R-Truth

    When Truth turned heel about a month ago, there was only one word that could explain it, awesome.

    Although it's kind of racist, his new street thug persona has definitely impressed me and many other members of the IWC.

    His feud with Rey Rey seems to be the most interesting thing on Raw right now, and I think that R-Truth's time to become a main-event heel.

8. Sin Cara

    Already making a name for himself in the WWE, Sin Cara debuted about a month ago.

    Since then, Sin Cara's been electrifying WWE Fans all around the world with his phenomenal moves and fast paced action.

    Said to be the new Rey Mysterio, Sin Cara's future with the WWE definitely looks bright.

     

     

7. Wade Barrett

    Barrett made a huge impact as the leader of the Nexus when he debuted in 2010.

    He was in the main event scene for a little while before moving to SmackDown.

    Although things aren't that great for him on SmackDown, WWE must trust Barrett a lot to put him in the main-event scene right rom his debut.

    I still feel there's hope for Barrett and like I mentioned before, hopefully Wade Barrett and Ezeikel Jackson's feud will do wonders for both of these men's careers.

6. Daniel Bryan

    Daniel Bryan has it all, the mic skills, charisma, and most importantly, fantastic wrestling skills.

    All he needs now is a couple of high-profile feuds and a better character but don't worry I have a solution to that.

    Bryan could turn heel and develop a more ruthless character because of the fact that his moves are aggressive and he's a submission specialist.

5. Cody Rhodes

    Rhodes has come far from being the forgotten member of Legacy.

    He moved to Smackdown, became "Dashing" Cody Rhodes, then turned into "Undashing" Cody Rhodes, and then had a great rivalry with Rey Mysterio.

    Rhodes has come so far that now he's even a possible contender for Orton's World Heavyweight Championship.

     

     

4. Kofi Kingston

    Boom! Boom! Boom!
    Boom! Boom! Boom!

    Boom, Boom, Boom.

    Kofi Kingston's been one of the most exciting superstars to ever debut in the WWE and his moves are innovative and amazing.

    I thought I saw Kingston's main-event push coming when he had that feud with Orton back in 2009.

    Sadly, due to backstage politics, his push was stopped and he went back to being a mid-carder on SmackDown.

    Kingston still has a very likely chance of becoming a main-event face and his time will come sooner or later.

3. Mason Ryan

    After watching Raw for the past month or so, I'm 99.9% sure that Mason Ryan will be the success story of The New Nexus.

    WWE Officials are high on him and he's definitely the next Batista.

    I see him turning face after destroying the Nexus and CM Punk all by himself.

    Mason Ryan's a future main-eventer for sure, and his push will probably come sooner then later.

     

2. Drew Mcintyre

    Drew Mcintyre was hand-picked by Vince Mcmahon to be part of the SmackDown roster when he debuted.

    The chairman even said that one day Mcintyre would be a world champion.

    I for one, agree with him.

    I think Mcintyre's a great heel and his character is one that will still get him far in the company.

    Now all Mcintyre needs is to become Vince's favorite up and coming superstar once again, and he's set to be a main-event heel.

1. John Morrison

    John Morrison has climbed the rankings within the WWE Universe and has earned our respect ever since his face turn back in 2009.

    His in-ring ability is awesome, and his moves are absolutely stunning.

    Not only that but he's also one of the most charismatic of the current crop of young superstars.

    Although he's injured right now, I still think that he should move back to SmackDown and recieve a push similar to Jeff Hardy's and become World Heavyweight Champion.
