If you're not aware, Triple H recently announced a huge addition to Monday Night Raw. 4 NXT Superstars were getting their call-up to the main roster; NXT Champion Tommaso Ciampa, his DIY partner and NXT North American Champion Johnny Gargano, And the former holders of those two titles, Aleister Black and Ricochet. The additions added a new spark to RAW which has been rather lacklustre of late. We here at Heelturn Wrestling, look at the potential of each man and rank from 4 to 1 who we think would achieve the most on the main roster.
Nothing against Ricochet but the simple fact is Vince McMahon will cut his incredible high flying ability in half and Ricochet thrives on his high-flying ability allowing him to put on some amazing matches
He is far from the best promo but has improved significantly since his days on the indys
I believe he will be stuck with 50-50 booking mould and never reach the upper echelons of the WWE due to his smaller stature and Vince having an idea of his top-tier stars being a larger in body size.
However if Ricochet is given some direction in his main card push, he will continue to be an excitement machine and putting on matches that the WWE Universe will be hyped to watch.
3. Aleister Black
The former Tommy End, has seen a new character development since joining NXT and The Dutch Destroyer could be the vital ingredient that is missing from Raw.
However, I rate Black only slightly above Ricochet mainly because how intriguing his character is.
Something that can hold him back Vince McMahon hating tattoos and therefore changing his tattoos, although there have been tattooed superstars who have main evented PPVs even Wrestlemania.
Even though his character is awesome I can see his dark gimmick being overbooked with stupid supernatural powers. Which would stop any momentum that he would have.
I for one hope this isn't the case, but my faith in WWE creative to push a character correctly isn't all that high. But if he is, Black could be a future champion.
2. Johnny Gargano
For me that me the biggest factor Johnny Gargano has against him is his size
For me, he is the ideal modern wrestler with him literally being the best seller of moves and being a complete ruthless psychopath
Very direct in his promos and everyone can relate to his especially with his storyline with Aleister Black, where it was revealed that he was the mysterious attacker of Black which set up their rivalry.
If not for the man in the number 1 spot, Johnny Wrestling would've been my number 1 for sure.
1. Tommaso Ciampa
What can be said about Tommaso Ciampa he is the perfect heel - old school heel, that people want to boo and that brings that real heat.
Ciampa has all the tools to be the top guy of WWE with his amazing look, great matches and promos that no one gets near.
Whether or not WWE decide to push him as the next main heel on RAW/SD Live or with Johnny Gargano as DIY, the potential for this man is unlimited.
And I would not be surprised to see Ciampa as WWE Champion in future.
