WWE Superstars We Hope Win Their First World Title in 2020

A list of WWE Superstars, male or female, who fans hope to see win the big one in 2020.
The voting period for this list has ended.
The Top Ten
1 Drew McIntyre Andrew McLean Galloway IV is a Scottish professional wrestler currently signed to WWE, where he performs on Monday Night Raw under the ring name Drew McIntyre, where he is a two-time WWE Champion.

He definitely earns this opportunity, it's been a long time and this should be his year to shine and fulfill that prophecy as world champion.

Drew has charisma, he's really good on the mic and he can wrestle. What more do you want?

I really hope he wins the WWE or Universal championship this year. It's his time.

2 Io Shirai Masami Odate is a Japanese professional wrestler, better known by her ring name Io Shirai. She is currently signed to WWE, where she performs on the NXT brand where she won the NXT Women's Championship... read more

Hope she recovers quickly from her injured leg during her vs Toni Storm. Hopefully her time is now as champ.

She beat Rhea Ridley and Charlotte Flair at In Your House and became NXT women's champion. Great news!

She's the hottest thing going on in NXT's women's division. She's definitely win a title soon.

3 Rusev Miroslav Barnyashev is a Bulgarian professional wrestler and former powerlifter and rower, better known by his ring name Rusev. He is known for his time in WWE, where he was a three-time United States Champion. Barnyashev is the first Bulgarian to have wrestled for WWE. He was released from WWE in April... read more

I'm still pissed off that Jinder won the WWE championship instead of Rusev. At least Rusev would of been a credible champion and one that fans would of been happy with. Maybe he will finally win the big one after the Lana / Lashley storyline.

4 Braun Strowman Adam Scherr is an American professional wrestler and former strongman. He is currently signed to WWE, where he performs under the ring name Braun Strowman. In WWE, he is a one-time Universal Champion, a one-time Intercontinental Champion, and a two-time Raw Tag Team Champion.

He ended up beating Goldberg for the Universal Championship at Wrestlemania.

Braun finally the won Universal championship and from Goldberg no less!

5 Samoa Joe Nuufolau Joel "Joe" Seanoa, better known by his ring name Samoa Joe, is an American professional wrestler, currently signed to WWE and performing on NXT. He is most well known for his time in NXT, where he was a former two time NXT champion.

Samoa Joe is an absolute beast and the fact that he still hasn't held a world title in WWE makes me question what Vince McMahon is trying to do.

6 Keith Lee
7 Shinsuke Nakamura Shinsuke Nakamura is a Japanese professional wrestler and former mixed martial artist currently signed to WWE competing on Smackdown Live. Nakamura is known for his work in New Japan Pro-Wrestling (NJPW), where he is a former three-time IWGP Heavyweight Champion. His other accomplishments within the... read more

Shinsuke should have been world champion 2 years ago, plus if he wins a world title, he'll become a Grand Slam champion.

He should've become champion right when he joined the main roster.

8 Cesaro Claudio Castagnoli is a Swiss professional wrestler currently signed to WWE, where he performs under the ring name Cesaro. He was previously known for his work in Ring of Honor (ROH) and various independent promotions including Pro Wrestling Guerrilla (PWG), Combat Zone Wrestling (CZW), and Pro Wrestling... read more

Cesaro should have been world champion like 4 years ago.

9 Lacey Evans

She's great in the ring, she cuts great promos and she has charisma. Plus she knows how to be a face or heel super well! When she got to Smackdown and talked about her being a marine, having a daughter and the struggles with her father, that really got me.

I love her! She's my fave! She definitely deserves to be Smackdown Women's Champion. She probably would've won it at Wrestlemania 36 if Bayley and Sasha hadn't have cheated and made her lose. Lace it Up!

Should've won the Smackdown Women's Championship at Royal Rumble 2020

10 John Morrison John Randall Hennigan is an American professional wrestler and actor, who is best known for his time in WWE where he performed under the ring name John Morrison. He was released from WWE in November 2021.

Once Morrison and Miz are done chasing the tag titles, Morrison can focus on his singles career, either with Miz in his corner or not.

Morrison is one of my favorite wrestlers, he's amazing in the ring, I hope he wins a world title this year or next year.

I would love to see Morrison vs Styles for the WWE Championship. That would be phenomenal!

The Contenders
11 Aleister Black

Right now, he's still world title material, but he should have won the championship when he came to the main roster.

Don't know why WWE is treating him like a jobber. This guy should be a world champion!

He has the best finisher in the WWE right now.

12 Bobby Lashley Franklin Robert "Bobby" Lashley is an American professional wrestler, mixed martial artist, and former collegiate amateur wrestler and former United States Army sergeant currently signed to both Bellator MMA, where he is undefeated through four heavyweight fights, and Total Nonstop Action Wrestling,... read more

I'd like to see that happen, he has a lot of potential and with Lesnar not showing up anytime soon because there are no crowds at the moment, it would be the perfect time to build Lashley up as a main eventer. His biggest flaw was always charisma, but with MVP as his mouthpiece, that's problem solved.

Pairing him with MVP was a blessing for him, he finally looks like a credible competitor. We finally have the Lashley of old that's just ready to kick asses and take names.

13 Buddy Murphy Matthew Adams is an Australian professional wrestler best known for his time in WWE, where he performed under the ring names Murphy or Buddy Murphy. He was released from WWE in June 2021.
14 Shayna Baszler

The fact that WWE has her tag teaming with Nia Jax instead of having the two fighting over a Raw Women's Championship opportunity is a problem to me. (Though I will admit, right now, I want Nia Jax to be the one between her and Baszler that ultimately becomes women's champion, her reign in 2018 was too short)

She is so underrated and she is just in everybody elses shadows. She is given the stupid story lines and never gets any opportunities. We all know she is very good and she can absolutely win the title if she had the chance.

15 Andrade
16 Bianca Belair
17 King Corbin Thomas Pestock is an American professional wrestler and former professional football player. He is currently signed to WWE, where he performs on the SmackDown brand under the ring name Happy Corbin. Pestock signed with WWE in 2012 and was assigned to their developmental brand NXT. He debuted on the... read more

Don't like him, but I respect him, and he should've successfully cashed in back in 2017.

18 Dexter Lumis
19 Mandy Rose Amanda Saccomanno is an American professional wrestler, television personality, and former fitness and figure competitor signed to WWE, where she performs under the name Mandy Rose, on the NXT brand.
20 Elias
21 Ilja Dragunov
22 Angel Garza

I see a lot of potential in Angel Garza. He reminds me of Eddie a bit, but with his own spin into it.

23 R Truth
24 Matt Riddle
