FCW: 5 Superstars Who Should Be Called to WWE's Main Roster
The WWE is always looking at their developmental territory Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW) for any future stars that they might have. FCW has produced many wrestlers that went on to the main roster with a list that includes Sheamus Wade Barrett, Dolph Ziggler and others.
The WWE have almost a show every day of the work week now, so the need for new wrestlers is coming soon. Also, it might be time to release some current wrestlers on the main roster that just aren’t WWE material. Some new FCW faces have already debuted over the past several months, but there are a select few who should brought up now.
Here is a list of the top five FCW superstars who should be called to WWE's main roster.
Seth Rollins was one of the quickest rising stars in Ring of Honor where he won their top title. Many have been waiting for his debut on WWE TV and feel it’s overdue.
With his solid work performance, put him on the SmackDown brand to feud with the newcomer Antonio Cesaro. Both had a memorable run in ROH, so it would be interesting to see how a WWE crowd would react to them against each other. If given enough time, the match could steal the show.
It might make some diehard ROH fans start to watch the WWE. If the crowd reacts in a positive fashion, make it a feud that has Cesaro’s valet Aksana fighting for the attraction of one of them.
Xavier Woods, known by many as Consequences Creed during his stint in TNA, has been floating around the FCW roster for the last two years showcasing his talent and more importantly his charisma.
With R-Truth out of action, let Woods take his place alongside Kofi Kingston. Have the other half of the Tag Team Championship Kingston come out and explain R-Truth’s injury. He would then call anyone from the back to be his partner and Woods comes out to no music as everyone wonders who he is.
Woods introduces himself to the audience and says he wants one chance to prove that he deserves to be a WWE superstar. Woods and Kingston would defend their titles with Woods scoring the pin.
The WWE could do an angle where Richie Steamboat is mentored by his father Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat. The WWE has done the father/son storyline before and it may help push Richie right away.
To pair a WWE Hall of Famer with his son seems to make sense. When Richie wins, there is his father to congratulate him and when he loses he’s there to show him what he did wrong.
The WWE could do angle with Ted DiBiase Jr. and his father feuding with Richie and his father. Both fathers are in the WWE HOF and it could be a storyline of which son is the future of the business.
At only 25 years old, Bray Wyatt has so much potential. His first run in the WWE, as Husky Harris, didn’t work as he seemed to not mix well with his stable the Nexus.
When Wyatt did wrestle, he showed talent for a wrestler of his large size. There’s something special about this young man and it would be foolish if the WWE didn’t take advantage of it.
Maybe he could be a given a moderate, borderline, monster size push. A feud with Ryback seems to fit nice, where Wyatt would finally end his winning streak. Wyatt could use his size and agility to stop Ryback and become the new unstoppable wrestler. Ryback doesn’t seem to click with WWE audience so it’s time to pass on him and give Wyatt that shot.
Dean Ambrose earlier in the year started a feud that had the internet buzzing. He would berate Mick Foley and blame him for professional wrestlers being too hardcore and attempting to top each other with more dangerous moves.
The feud then was then halted unexpectedly. Not only is the feud interesting, but it has some truth behind it. Wrestlers are always trying to steal the show with these death defying moves now and some could point to Foley’s wrestling style as a reason why.
It could be a feud in front of a live audience and one that uses social media too. The WWE seems to be addicted to using social media lately, so that’s a plus. On top of it all, it’s a way to bring Foley back to TV and put a wrestler over.
