While the WWE has a fairly large roster of superstars, it seems awfully thin right now. A big reason for that is the fact that many talented guys are either out injured or being repackaged at the moment. It's hard to say what the writers have on their minds, but there is room for a lot of those guys to get pushed in the near future.
Aside from CM Punk, John Cena, Ryback, Sheamus and Big Show, the WWE doesn't seem to be too heavily invested in its superstars right now. It would be very easy for someone to step in and ascend to a prominent position quickly, and I anticipate the road from Survivor Series to WrestleMania to feature plenty of that.
When a new superstar is introduced with vignettes, it's usually a pretty good bet that he'll be utilized heavily upon debuting. Also, when a prominent wrestler is injured or taking time off for a significant period, his return is usually quite fruitful. A perfect example of each would be Tensai, who beat John Cena and CM Punk after his debut, as well as Christian, who won the Intercontinental title on the night he came back from injury earlier in the year.
With that in mind, here are five superstars who are currently being repackaged or are ready to return from injury and are good bets to be pushed when they do come back into the fold.
