It's lonely at the top. That saying is especially true in the world of wrestling, where it feels as though at least one of John Cena, Randy Orton, Brock Lesnar, and Roman Reigns has held one world championship or another for the past seven years. With the recent opportunities afforded to the likes of Kofi Kingston, Jey Uso, and Drew McIntyre, the door may just be opening for some fresh blood to enter the main event scene.
In both the men's and women's ranks, events like the Royal Rumble and WrestleMania are becoming more predictable with each passing year. Rumble matches are at their best when they are stacked with top-level talent who could feasibly have their hand raised at the end of the night. Boosting the profiles of the Superstars would go a long way to creating some exciting competition and brand new rivalries at the top of the card.
All of the names featured have earned the right to be talked about as future world champions. Only one is a former world champion (in WWE), but every person here has a wealth of quality matches, memorable moments, and title-holding experience.
