Every year a select group of WWE Superstars begin to rise up and stand out from the crowd, putting on consistently amazing performances week-in, week-out and staking a claim on that time as the best Superstar in the WWE for the past 12 months.
In 2018 Superstars like Becky Lynch, Drew McIntyre, Daniel Bryan, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns were the standout performers on the main roster with Johnny Gargano, Tommaso Ciampa rising to the top of NXT?
But who will rise to the top in 2019? Which Superstars will leave a lasting impression at the end of the year and make those year-end best-of lists on wrestling websites? Well, WWE themselves have released a list of Superstars to keep an eye out for in 2019, so it seems likely some of those Superstars will be the highlights of 2019 when it's done!
Let's take a look at who made the WWE's list and see if we agree!
#15. Drew McIntyre
'The Scottish Psychopath' had rather a breakout year in 2018, so the fact the WWE are predicting big things for him in 2019 as well makes it seem like they're intent in paying off all of the promise and talent that McIntyre has shown since he returned to the main roster after leaving and coming back to the company.
He's already won the Raw Tag-Team titles with former partner Dolph Ziggler, but 2019 seems to be the year he sets his sights on bigger and better things, the WWE Universal Title. With Seth Rollins Vs Brock Lesnar for the title taking place at WrestleMania, it won't be until after April, but don't be surprised if McIntyre becomes a world champion after that!
