15 Stars You Would Never Think WWE Would Sign For The Brand Extension…BUT SHOULD

On July 19th, WWE SmackDown goes live and the draft will begin. Even though the original Brand Split was kind of "meh" overall, this time around there are high hopes. First and foremost, the "B-Show" is going live, which means there is a new energy surrounding the split. Secondly, there is an air that this time both brands will truly stay separate and there won't be a lot of co-mingling. Thirdly, NXT is a viable third brand/developmental territory that the company can pluck stars from at any time. Of course, with Triple H by the boss' side, there is a sense of wonder. The thought that all kinds of stars from the world over will get signed to make the New Era not just feel unique, but send the company and industry into a new stratosphere.

Even though the WWE is vastly ahead of every other company, there's still a lot of talent in New Japan, Ring of Honor, AAA in Mexico, Lucha Underground, and of course TNA. Some have worked for the company before, but barely cracked the surface of what they could be. Now they're at the top of their game. Be it NXT, Raw, or SmackDown, in a bit of fantasy talent scouting, here are the Top 15 Stars You Didn't Think Of That WWE Should Sign For The Brand Extension.

3 Ronda Rousey

Jason Silva-USA TODAY Sports

We know she's a fan of the highest order. She's been trained to fight by former pro and legend, Judo Gene LeBelle and got the blessing of the original Rowdy One, Roddy Piper, to take the moniker for herself. She shows up with the rest of The Four Horsewomen (MMA version) at plenty of the big events and taught Stephanie McMahon a lesson at WrestleMania in Silicon Valley. If the WWE really wants their women's division to be as legit as the men's, it's time to make overtures to the former UFC Bantamweight Champion, 'Rowdy' Ronda Rousey. You'd bring her in as a special Brock-like attraction. Have every match she's a part of be as special as she is. The exact same way they book Lesnar. After all, she's not like every other woman in the company.

1 Kenny Omega

In the last few years, WWE has recruited the first three leaders of The Bullet Club, so why not bring in the fourth? Why not bring in Winnipeg, Manitoba's second most popular wrestler, Kenny Omega. Omega is one of the many gaijin wrestlers who have not just taken a liking to Japan and the Rising Sun's culture, but the Japanese wrestling fans have welcomed him as well. While plenty of wrestlers, most notably Xavier Woods, are also huge video game fans, Omega is the only one to incorporate it as a gimmick. The otaku gamer even utilizes The Haduken from Street Fighter as a palm strike finisher. The gamer bit could be used to get Omega over as a mega(-man?) face or Vince could go the easy route and dub him The Omega Man (hopefully not). But the company is in dire need of true heels right now, so perhaps he could come in as a heel. After all, the guy famously decimated a nine year old in a match and facilitated ousting A..J Styles out of The Bullet Club. But besides a match with Styles and a battle for Winnipeg with Y2J, Omega is just the right amount of different the company needs to make the second brand split truly special.
