The WWE is an ever-changing landscape, and that has been evident this year with two new superstars winning their first world championships. Drew McIntyre and Braun Strowman both got off the mark in terms of world titles at WrestleMania earlier in the year.
Their reigns may have gone in opposite directions, but nobody would be able to take it away from them that they have held one of the most famous prizes in wrestling. However, which superstars could be best placed to emulate their exciting years by winning their first world championships in 2021?
WWE News: Bianca Belair
It’s fair to say that the star of Bianca Belair is only rising further and further with every appearance that she makes in the ring. It looks almost impossible to not see the EST win at least one world championship during the next 12 months.
She is the hottest thing in the WWE at present, and not many women can come close to her natural wrestling ability and persona. Fans are certainly invested in Belair, and she certainly looks like the next superstar that is able to reach the levels that have been set by Sasha Banks, Bayley and Asuka over the past 12 months.
WWE News: Keith Lee
WWE have had a strange approach when it comes to Keith Lee, as his push has been stop-start to say the least. He shocked the WWE Universe by arriving on the scene with a huge PPV victory over Randy Orton, before the Viper then went on to challenge for the WWE Championship.
Since then, Lee has been involved at Survivor Series for Team Raw, but there hasn’t been a meaningful singles rivalry thus far. Speculation has already indicated that could be about to change, as it has been reported that Lee could be taking on Brock Lesnar and McIntyre at WrestleMania next year.
WWE News: Big E
The WWE have promised a big singles push for Big E throughout much of 2020, but we will eventually get that push next year. Big E is already among the favourites to win the Men’s Royal Rumble match, which could lead to a huge Mania main event against Roman Reigns.
It would make sense for Big E to get the rub of taking the title of Reigns, as it would ensure that he would become a megastar for the WWE moving forward.
