The days of the territories are over and the road to the WWE is a little more confusing. There’s no true path to get there, but the new stars of the last few years have typically found success in the same three places. ROH is the place for young independent wrestling stars looking to make a name as the top unsigned stars. NXT is where new WWE prospects show they are ready for the big time. WWE is where the big things happen. Seth Rollins is the only man to get to the top of the mountain in all three places by winning each of the World Titles. Kevin Owens and Samoa Joe are the only two active stars with a good chance at following the trifecta, but Rollins is currently all alone for that milestone.
