In a piece for WWE.com, editors of the site came up with a list of 10 superstars who will be the “future” of the company.
Current “Money in the Bank” holder Seth Rollins was not included because he was pegged as being the next big thing months ago:
“Seth Rollins likes to call himself “the living, breathing future of WWE.” Even if he only got that moniker thanks to a glowing endorsement from his benefactor, Triple H (who, ahem, must have heard it first on WWE.com), the claim has some legs. Mr. Money in the Bank is nothing if not one of the most dynamic, versatile and physically gifted Superstars the WWE Universe has seen in years: A Jeff Hardy-style daredevil with a well-earned dash of megalomania to go with it, Rollins really does have it all.
Still, he’s certainly not the only guy in contention to be “the future.” Rollins has blinders on, as well he must, but there’s an astounding crop of talent sprouting around him even as he continues to reach both literal and figurative heights in his very young career.”
In no particular order, the 10 superstars selected were:
- Luke Harper
- Sami Zayn
- Dolph Ziggler
- Dean Ambrose
- Finn Balor
- Hideo Itami
- Baron Corbin
- Roman Reigns

If those 10 names really are the core that carries the WWE torch for years to come, this company will be in very good hands.
