WWE Draft: 15 Superstars Now In Line For A Big Push

I remember when Vince McMahon came out in 2002 and said: "It's time to shake things up a bit!" He continued to speak and explained that Raw and SmackDown would be different brands, have different superstars and titles, and essentially be different wrestling shows. Twelve-year-old me was ecstatic. Now, after a bunch of re-drafts, we're finally getting a new draft with a bunch of new superstars.

Essentially, all these superstars will have more time to showcase their skills and improve upon their weaknesses. Many of these men and women didn't get a chance to be part of a segment on Raw, and therefore, their stories weren't told. Now, all of these superstars have plenty of time to get the audience to react.

There will be a learning curve for some superstars, but that's essentially the point of the draft. It's time for everybody to show what they can do. It's not just good guys that are going to get pushed. There will be a fair share of bad guys that now have the opportunity to show just how bad they can be. It's an exciting time for wrestling. So, let's go through the 15 superstars now in line for a big push.

7 Baron Corbin

As long as Baron Corbin doesn’t wrestle Dolph Ziggler for a few months, I’ll be happy. I love Ziggler and he’s one of my favorites, but after awhile, what the point of them wrestling every week for months? Both guys can do better. There are many other guys that he can fight and interact with.

6 The Club

5 Becky Lynch

1 Finn Balor

This one is fairly obvious, if a little surprising. This was as good a time as any to call Finn Balor up to the main roster, but he went extremely early and which surprised many fans. This just shows that WWE has a lot of faith in Balor and want him to become a key player very quickly. There’s a chance that Balor will quickly begin at the very top and feud with the A+ players, but I think he might start somewhere in the mid-card instead against somebody like Sheamus. Balor will easily show those unfamiliar with his work in NXT, and before coming to the WWE, that he is a main-event player. This guy is the future of WWE and likely will be for the next ten years. Plus, he won’t have JBL yelling about how he isn’t a real demon every three seconds, which will help him get over with the television audience much faster.
