The WWE has a handful of stars who are currently carrying the company on their backs and figure to do so for the foreseeable future.
Guys like John Cena, CM Punk and a few others are bona fide household names in this business, and barring something unforeseen happening, they should have a firm spot at the top of the WWE for, well, basically as long as they want it.
As the WWE looks to the future, however, it's pretty clear that the company isn't going to be able to rely on just Cena, Punk, Sheamus and Randy Orton forever. It's absolutely imperative that new superstars step up and join the company's elite.
Luckily for the WWE, there is no shortage of superstars who are more than capable of rising up to the challenge and giving the company a new top-tier star for both the short and long-terms.
Here are my rankings of the top 10 future stars of the WWE.
NOTE: This list will NOT include guys like John Cena, Randy Orton, CM Punk and even Sheamus. They have been and currently are the WWE's top stars. I'm talking about the guys who haven't been given a ton of opportunities to carry the company, but may have to down the road.
