Admit it, everyone will mark out if CM Punk returns to WWE in 2018

2017 is in the books and WWE made some major additions to their roster throughout the year.

Currently, the promotion has a deep roster of their performers spread across Raw, SmackDown, NXT and 205 Live. But this is not going to stop Vince McMahon and Triple H from acquiring the signatures of new wrestlers in 2018.

If we go by the rumours, WWE has already started making moves to expand their roster. With their competitors like New Japan Pro Wrestling gaining ground, WWE’s search for star power seems right.

But who should they sign this year?

We are going to dwell a bit on this question and take a look at some potential wrestlers that could end up being on the WWE roster in 2018.

#7 Kenny Omega

Kenny Omega would’ve been on top of this list if it wasn’t for his contract with New Japan Pro Wrestling. The Cleaner is advertised for many Ring of Honor and NJPW shows in 2018 which indicates that he will be staying out of WWE for the time being.

But in the second half of 2018, it could be a different story.

WWE’s interest in Omega is no secret. And considering how good Omega has been over the past few years, it wouldn’t be a surprise if Vince McMahon splashes out big money to attain the services of the reigning IWGP United States champion.

Whether or not Omega would succeed in WWE is a debate for another day. Nevertheless, the signing would be huge and can attract many eyeballs to the WWE product.
