Dolph Ziggler got a new lease on his wrestling career with the move to SmackDown Live

John Cena is still the beloved (and hated) wrestler WWE has built him up to be. The 15-time WWE World champion is loved because he connects with the fan base, but is despised for the same reason and for the fact his gimmick is old and dated. Where is his “Thuganomics” shtick when you need it?

WWE still banks on Cena to bring in the fans when other superstars fall short.

Many of the superstars on WWE’s roster fall short these days because their characters don’t have the depth or a backstory.

They arrive on the scene, move up the ladder and then leave the fans wanting more because they are plain and sometimes drab. For that reason, the company relies on a short list of babyfaces (and heels) fans identify with and enjoy watching in the ring and on the mic.

Here are the five best babyfaces in WWE today:

#1 Sasha Banks

Sasha Banks (and Charlotte) are doing it better than anyone in WWE

The Boss has been better than advertised since she joined the mix last year on the main roster. Her current run as the Women’s Champion has been a refreshing program and her feud with Charlotte Flair is white hot. It is the best program going in the company today.

Banks’ ability to appeal to the masses, her style and her in-ring performances make me think of Lita. While she still has some time to reach that kind of status, she is well on her way toward being the best, if not the best female to ever wrestle in WWE.
