Forced by the retirements and injuries of several big names, the WWE has been pushing new stars in the past couple of years—some with more success than others.
The Miz is clearly the biggest example of success so far, with him enjoying a long first WWE Championship reign and preparing to headline Wrestlemania XXVII.
Other pushes didn’t work so well, like Sheamus’ two paper reigns as WWE Champion and Jack Swagger’s horrible time as World Heavyweight Championship.
That won’t stop WWE from pushing new talent to the main event, and we can be sure that we will have a few more new world champions in the future.
Who are the next five future World Champions? Let’s take a look.
