7 WWE Superstars Who Are Next in Line for a Big Push
Currently, there is no WWE champion, and John Cena has been out recovering from surgery on his elbow for the last two months.
In other words, this is an excellent time for a Superstar or Diva to gain some of the WWE spotlight.
Hell in a Cell is scheduled as the next pay-per-view event, which will lead into one of the marquee events of the year—Survivor Series.
So who might get a chance to grab that proverbial brass ring? Here's a look at seven wrestlers who are in line for a big push.
To this point, WWE has done a great job of building the future of Bray Wyatt.
He has notched big wins over Kane and Kofi Kingston on pay-per-view and has been dominant in his televised matches.
However, he and the rest of the Wyatt Family will be absent from both Raw and SmackDown far too often.
Wyatt is one of the more interesting characters that WWE has developed in years—it's time to see just how good he can be.
Though she isn't the most gifted in the ring, the WWE definitely has plans for Eva Marie.
Each week, the WWE finds ways to involve her, and on the most recent edition of Raw, she participated in her first official match.
The Total Divas reality show will continue to be mentioned every time WWE gets the chance, and Eva Marie is one of the focal points of that show.
Along with Darren Young, Titus O'Neil helps make up a solid, entertaining tag team. He is also a guy WWE could do a lot with as a singles competitor.
He has the size (6'6", 270 pounds) that WWE likes, but more importantly, he has gotten over with the fans.
His trademark bark gets louder and louder each time we see him, and he seems like the kind of guy the fans could get behind.
Wade Barrett is long overdue for a spot in the main event scene.
After going back to his background as a bare-knuckle fighter, Barrett won the intercontinental title before basically disappearing from television.
According to F4Wonline via Pro Wrestling Inc., Barrett will be repackaged and brought back soon.
He has what it takes to be a headliner. WWE needs to do what it can to bring that out.
The Real Americans
On their own, both Jack Swagger and Antonio Cesaro have achieved plenty of success in WWE. Together, they are becoming an excellent tag team.
Once you throw Zeb Colter into the mix, they could be the top heel tag team in the company.
Swagger and Cesaro have picked up victories over The Usos and the team of The Great Khali and Santino Marella, the latter of which took place at WWE Battleground.
And if you haven't seen Cesaro perform the giant swing, it's a must-see.
This one seems obvious following recent events, but it's also well deserved.
Battling with his brother, Goldust, at WWE Battleground, Cody Rhodes was able to earn back his job in WWE and is now squarely in a feud with Triple H and his faction.
A program between Rhodes and Randy Orton would make a lot of sense, and if the WWE title were involved, it would be that much better.
Rhodes has worked his way up the ranks of WWE, and seeing him reach the top of the mountain would be very fitting.
