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 Champion.
The WWE will keep pushing new talent to the main event in the next years, but that doesn’t mean every young superstar will get his chance.
There are several young (and not so young) wrestlers who the IWC would love to see as world champions, but only a few of them will be.
Others will have to settle with Tag Team or mid card championships. They don’t have everything they need to become a top guy in the company.
Just like Kyle Busch in the picture, they can dream about becoming world champions, but they won't be.
The next five men are popular picks to be World Champions some day, but it won’t happen.
