We have already opened a new decade of wrestling. As years pass, we know that several of the WWE's current top stars will, at a certain point, meet their supernova. Of course, accompanied by this is the birth of a new superstar.
Now, I would like to present to you the top five fresh, young superstars who will most likely be the WWE's future. They are in no particular order, for each superstar has his own strengths and weaknesses. I will highlight here the good side and the bad side of their venture to super stardom.
So sit back, relax, grab a box popcorn and enjoy the article.
Without a shadow of a doubt, Kingston has been showing a lot of promise. He proved that he can elevate himself to higher standards since his feud with Randy Orton. He has the moves that make the crowd go wild, the athleticism and amazing maneuvers which impress a lot of us every Monday night.
At WrestleMania 25, he was able to shock us with awesome moves and innovative ladder strategies. We were like, "Hey, this guy can headline a main event someday!" True, Kofi has the potential to be a top star.
Honestly, he has the moves, but the mic isn't too good with him. We all know that mic skills are very vital for a star to shine. My suggestion is to give Kofi some time to improve his speaking skills, so he can bring out the best in him.
His push is a little bit getting pale now. He has no rival. Get a worthy wrestler there and push them in a good storyline. I suggest Carlito who has not been doing anything lately.
O'Shaunessy is indeed a great wrestler, no one can argue about that. He has a vast move set, unlike John Cena. He can do almost anything in the ring, and I don't doubt seeing him do a 450 splash one day. He has a lot of potential, and in-ring no one can match him today. If talks about wrestling arise, Sheamus is indeed the man.
It is as if the WWE does not treat him as a champion. Come on, he is the WWE Champion, and he has no promos? Hell, the crowd does not give a damn about him for he is not given the right spotlight. They don't see the potential in him week in and week out. He just squashes smaller competitors. So, it would be best if we give him a pretty decent match and have him involved in heel promos.
In addition to that, he also needs charisma improvement. He's poor on the mic; therefore, he needs practice.
He has the genes, athleticism and charisma. DiBiase has been making a statement on RAW for moments now, and a lot of people see him as a future World Champion. That time isn't too far away in my opinion.
From what I see, Legacy is about to meet its end—which might have been sparked by a Orton-DiBiase feud. I wanna see him in singles action. He is future indeed.
He is not in the top currently. Lately, the matches he has been in on RAW provide nothing for his stardom (e.g. getting beaten by DX week in and week out). But don't expect this for long, because after the Royal Rumble, I see brighter days for him.
The Shaman of Sexy has been showing a lot of promise since last year, perfected by his ship to Friday Night SmackDown. Since then, he has been one of the brand's top performers and most anticipated stars. The crowd appreciates him much, and honestly, his ring entrance is great.
He is a flexible wrestler. He can do almost anything in the ring. Hurricanrana, slams, bombs, DDT's, a standing SSP, you name it. He is indeed the Friday Night Delight, and his charisma is overgrowing. Everyone sees him as this decade's HBK.
I expected Morrison to be in the World Title run at this part of the season, but it seems to me that the WWE has stuck him at the Intercontinental Title. He needs a bigger push and an opponent who is more formidable than McIntyre. I mean, come on, the crowd does not even care about Drew.
He's The Miz, and he's awesome!! I totally agree about this. Miz, in my opinion, is the WWE's current best mic performer. He cuts several promos which are great. And now, he has changed his persona for the better—from a wannabe to a wrestler.
He has outshined his former partner, Morrison, and still holds on to his coveted US Title. He has renewed a great feud with MVP, and their exchange last week of trash talk impressed me so much.
I agree when they say that he is the future Y2J. With his charisma and talent, he can push the limits. No doubt, he is a main-eventer in the making. It makes me wonder how he would be as a face, but in my opinion, he plays his character best as a heel.
He needs more in-ring skill improvement. That is the only thing he lacks, I think, for him to be the WWE's top star this decade.
