WWE Future Candidates

This one should be very interesting.  Essentially, best known now as the wife of WWE Superstar turned MMA fighter, CM Punk, A.J. Lee was at one time the most over woman in the company, and perhaps in the top five overall.  While small in stature, Lee was large on talent both with her skill in…
Alberto Del Rio is the son of Mexican wrestling legend, Dos Caras, and appears to have eclipsed his famous father’s career. Del Rio hit prominence in the WWE in his mid-30’s, and though he has had a relatively brief career by WWE standards, it is conceivable that his best is yet to come and many…
Did Bobby Lashley do enough to warrant a rank? Currently trying to pursue a career in Mixed Martial Arts, we will hold off on any potential rank as we are not ruling out a potential WWE comeback. During his relatively brief tenure for Vince, Lashley was pushed strong as monster sized face and competed in…
Shocingly returning to the WWE in a limited schedule in 2012, Brock Lesnar became (at the time) the youngest WWE World Heavyweight Champion ever.  Lesnar left to pursue a successful career in Mixed Martial Arts, and this his future induction to the WWE Hall of Fame is a lot more likely than it was only…
The son of 2014 WWE Hall of Fame Inductee Carlos Colon, Carlito Colon had a seven year run in the WWE that had some ups and downs. The Puerto Rican held the Intercontinental, United States and Tag Team Championship, and while capable of great matches, often seemed unmotivated. As such, Carlito had a long and…
Depending on your point of view, Cesaro (the former Claudio Castagnoli) is one of the strongest wrestlers or either one of the most talented wrestlers in the last ten years of the WWE.  Perhaps you think he fits both criteria!
He may not have had the success of his uncle Eddie, but Chavo Guerrero Jr. remained in the National wrestling spotlight for a whopping sixteen years between 1996 and 2011 competing for WCW and WWE.  An excellent wrestler who as part of the legendary Guerrero clan, Chavo never failed to deliver solid matches and often…
The WWE run of Christopher Daniels was not exactly impressive.  “The Fallen Angel” was regulated to tryout matches and C-Level shows but the charismatic figure would become a major force on the indy scene and as of this writing remains a fixture in Ring of Honor.  Should Daniels ever find himself as a coach for…
CM Punk may not just be the best wrestler in the current era; he might just be the greatest talker too. A game changer in the industry, CM Punk will vault into a top five spot on our list once his in ring career comes to an end, and we hope that won’t happen for…
The reincarnation of Mr. Perfect, Dolph Ziggler has become one of the top wrestlers in the game, and one that fans struggle to hate due to his immense talent. The “Show off” should have many more top notch matches in him, and if he continues at this pace, the WWE Hall of Fame should be…
A better technical wrestler than 99 percent of any roster in the world, Nick Dinsmore, finally cracked the WWE roster after years of developmental as “Eugene”; Eric Bischoff’s “special” nephew. The gimmick was in poor taste, but for a solid year, he was over, and long after the fans turned on him, they all were…
Another WWE Diva who left the organization at a relatively young age, Eve Torres was on her way to becoming a really good worker and had really come in to her own as a heel. She is still young enough to make a comeback to the “E”, but her departure left a serious void in…
Gail Kim arrived in the WWE with so much fanfare, winning the WWE Women’s Title in a Battle Royal in her debut match. It might have been too soon, as her reign was not a success and she languished there for a couple of years. With an improved moveset, she would become the centerpiece of…
The biggest star in the WWE for the last ten years has also been its most polarizing. Love him or hate him, when John Cena retires from professional wrestling he will be a first ballot WWE Hall of Famer and will vault to the top (or near it) of our Notinhalloffame.com list. It is hard…
On three occasions, the WWE had Pete Polaco under contract.  The first, they placed a yellow jock strap on his head and dubbed him the Portuguese Man O’ War.  The second they watered down his successful ECW run and made him a whipping boy in the X-Factor Stable.  His third was a jobber on the…
A frequent opponent of Rey Mysterio in Mexico and WCW, Juventud Guerrera, did not have as good a career as Mysterio, nor was his run in the WWE anything to celebrate, but the high flying luchadore was a major talent, and had he had his act together and put together a good run for Vince,…
Love him or hate him (or merely tolerate him), Michael Cole has been an announcing fixture in the WWE for well over two decades.  Cole, who actually has a Wrestlemania win on his resume, has been the voice of Monday Night Raw for as long as most people can remember and will likely eventually be…
Entering the WWE in 2005, as a psychotic Diva with clear lesbian undertones, Mickey James won the Women’s title from Trish Stratus at Wrestlemania 22 in Chicago. Although her character would turn face and be defanged somewhat, James was always considered one of the top female wrestlers not only in the WWE, but also in…
Montel Vontavious Porter (MVP) did not get into Professional Wrestling until his early 30’s due to a nine and half year incarceration. Still, the man born Alvin Burke Jr. followed his dream and developed the persona of “MVP”, modelled after the self absorbed athlete of the modern era. We watched MVP improve almost nightly, to…
Into his 40’s, R-Truth has had an up and down career in the WWE. He was unique and innovative, but there was always something missing that would have taken him to next level. He is likely beginning the downswing of his career, and it is difficult to see him generating any significant moment that would…
