NXT has been WWE's hottest brand for a number of years now, and 2018 did nothing to slow that down, and while we all expect that again in 2019, a spanner has been thrown in the works with the recent main roster debuts of Tommaso Ciampa, Johnny Gargano, Aleister Black and Ricochet.

All 4 men are very deserving of being on the biggest WWE stage possible, as they have put in the work in NXT and proven to be superstars, but it leaves us with more questions than answers regarding 'goldie'.

We haven't heard anything official about whether this is a permanent promotion or just a way to bring some hype to RAW and Smackdown, but it's clear that Ciampa's time with 'goldie' may be coming to an end.

With that in mind, here are the 5 most logical candidates that could indeed dethrone the fantastic reign of the Psycho Killer, Tommaso Ciampa.

#5 Jonah Rock

The WWE have been signing plenty of Australian talent over the past few years, but none are more polished and known worldwide (outside of the WWE) than The King of Monsters, Jonah Rock. He worked for every promotion in Australia, and branched out to wrestle in the UK and for PWG in the States, and despite his size, he's one of the most versatile and athletic performers in the world today.

He has only just started at the Performance Centre, but he's got the talent to move to TV straight away, and if The Champ is moving to the main roster soon, then Jonah is a candidate to get a big push straight away.

It's unlikely to happen, as they will build him up for quite some time before getting that push, but if they truly want a monster heel at the top, The King of Monsters is definitely an option.
