The WWE Universe had a lot of questions when the announcement was made that Paul Heyman and Eric Bischoff were coming in as Executive Directors of Raw and SmackDown, respectively, and the company has done a good job of answering those .
One question that hasn't been answered yet, though, is who exactly will be the next big thing on the main roster?
Sure, WWE has given hints as to who it could be, with engaging segments featuring Braun Strowman, Bobby Lashley, Kevin Owens, Samoa Joe, and Richochet. However, they could very well just be placeholders for what's to come. Furthermore, some of their current projects might not pan out, which leaves the door open for others to take their place.
With the new era of programming slowly amping up, here are five WWE Superstars that could be the next big thing under Bischoff and Heyman. As always, let us know your thoughts in the comments below and be sure to tell us who you think will be the next big thing.

The Chicago native is an inspiring every-man who can tell a story both in the ring and on a microphone. He is a guy willing to take those extra risks to make a particular match spectacular. Above all, he's someone that fans can see themselves in and rally behind
This is only the beginning.
