World/WWE Title: Which Young Wrestler Is Next in Line?

Adrian StaehleSenior Analyst IMarch 8, 2009

There are some talented young wrestlers in the WWE, and I came up with a few names that should or could be champion in the years to come.

Mr. Kennedy

He has the talent and the charisma to get to the top of the WWE, but one thing that is holding him back is that he is injury prone. Kennedy can be a great champion because I see the "it" factor in him, and I am certain he can carry the company for a while. What title will he end up winning? It will be the World Title.


One of the best wrestlers on the mic, MVP has been a solid performer since entering the WWE in 2006. Porter has been a Tag Team and U.S. Champion and can be either a World or WWE Champion. Porter is truly one of the guys that can carry the company. The title I see MVP winning is WWE Championship.

John Morrison

He is being held back from his potential in the WWE, and when he is finally let loose he will be a great champion. Morrison came in as the gem of MNM, and he won the ECW, Intercontinental, and both the World and WWE Tag Team Titles. I see Morrison winning the World Title.

Matt Hardy

Yes, he has won ECW Title, but that is not a major title. He has been the U.S. Champion, and he has earned the World and WWE Tag Team Title, European, Hardcore, and Cruiserweight Title. He will soon be either the World or WWE champion. He has the "wow" factor, and I would not be surprised to see him as champ in 2009. I see Matt Hardy winning the World Title.

Shelton Benjamin

Shelton is the best athlete in the WWE right now, and he is the best mid-carder, too. He has won Tag Team Title as well as the Intercontinental and U.S. Title, and he has been coming up short in MITB since it started in 2005 at WrestleMania 21.

Of the young wrestlers not on this list, who do you think will win a world title?
