NXT stars Lars Sullivan, Johnny Gargano, Aleister Black and Kilian Dane

Sometimes you just have to pass the torch.

It happened in 1987 when Andre lost to Hulk Hogan, it happened in 2005 when John Cena pinned JBL, and it will happen again.

With a great number of the WWE's Attitude and Ruthless Aggression era wrestlers either retiring or winding down their careers it's time to speculate on who will be the stars of the future.

Here are ten men and women who are on the cusp of superstardom in the wrestling world.


#10 Aleister Black

<p>

Aleister Black is one of the fastest-rising stars on NXT. With his compelling entrance, moody persona, and martial arts prowess, he is already over with the fans of that promotion.

WWE has teased his movement to one of the 'main' brands on social media. The fact that he lost his bid for an NXT title shot is more proof that he's being considered for the main roster run.

While Black's poor English will hurt his ability to connect with the fans, his gimmick and prowess in the ring should more than makeup for that. WWE could be looking at their next Undertaker with the talented Dutchman.
