The WWE card always gets some shuffling after 'Mania. Who will rise to new heights after the biggest show of the year?

Wrestlemania season is in full swing, and the sports entertainment world is buzzing about the title picture for Raw and Smackdown.

Speculation about who will walk away from the biggest wrestling event of the year abounds, but Wrestlemania is more transformative for the mid and lower card than it is for the long-established stars who make up the main events.

Who will rise up on the card, and join the ranks of Roman Reigns and AJ Styles as top-tier WWE talent? We forecast who could be getting that big push to the top with this fun slideshow.

10. Finn Balor

Former Universal champion Balor has seen a lot of ups and downs in his career of late. WWE management hasn't been certain where to put him on the card, or even if they want him to be a heel or a face.

As Prince Dewitt, Balor was a cocky, violent heel who the fans hated. As the Demon in NXT, he was beloved and cheered endlessly. WWE could do a lot worse than to push the young-yet-experienced Balor to the upper card.

His ability to have a great match with almost anyone and fantastic physical condition are definite pluses in his favour. If he remains the unpainted Balor, expect him to go full heel. If the Demon King returns, it will likely be for a face run. In either case, he could be set up as the new face of RAW after Wrestlemania.
