5 WWE Superstars In Need of a Title Push in 2024

5. LA Knight

LA Knight has been hailed as the WWE's "megastar," captivating the WWE Universe for well over a year now. At 41 years old, Knight defies age with his peak performance and commanding presence in the ring.

In 2023, Knight left his mark in the Men's Money in the Bank ladder match, clashed fiercely with Roman Reigns for the WWE Undisputed Championship, and engaged in a thrilling fatal four-way at the Royal Rumble, competing alongside AJ Styles, Randy Orton, and Reigns himself.

Despite his undeniable talent, Knight faced setbacks on these grand stages. While WWE teased a potential feud between Knight and Logan Paul for the United States Championship, plans shifted with Knight now setting his sights on the men's King of the Ring tournament and Logan Paul being teased with a possible feud with Braun Stroman.

Hopefully, Knight can punch a ticket into the Money in the Bank ladder match and win the briefcase this year. 

4. Shinsuke Nakamura

Since his debut on SmackDown in 2017, Shinsuke Nakamura has left his imprint on the WWE landscape. He's amassed an impressive collection of mid-card titles and even triumphed in a memorable Royal Rumble match.

However, Nakamura's trajectory in recent times seems to have been off course. Many fans believe that his potential is not being fully realized. With his undeniable talent and charisma, Nakamura is unquestionably deserving of a prominent spot in the world title scene.

WWE must reassess Nakamura's trajectory and devise a strategy that propels him back into contention for the title. With his magnetic presence and in-ring prowess, Nakamura is undoubtedly championship material, and it's high time WWE recognized and capitalized on that fact in this new era.

3. Tiffany Stratton

Since her transition from NXT to the main roster earlier this year, Tiffany Stratton has been nothing short of sensational.

Her exceptional in-ring ability and mic skills have gained widespread acclaim from the WWE Universe. With each appearance, she continues to win over fans and establish herself as a formidable force in professional wrestling.

At the recent Backlash event, Stratton stepped into the ring against the seasoned veterans Bayley and Naomi in a thrilling championship match. While Bayley emerged victorious and retained her title, it was clear that Stratton's performance left a lasting impression on fans and critics alike.

While some voices in the WWE Universe expressed disappointment at the outcome, others recognized that perhaps it's too soon for Stratton's main roster journey to claim championship gold. Regardless, Tiffany Stratton's future looks incredibly bright, and it's only a matter of time before she ascends to the top of the women's division.

2. Finn Balor 

Despite his villainous turn alongside Judgement Day, Finn Bálor has remained a beloved figure in the WWE Universe.

Since relinquishing the WWE Universal Championship the day after his historic win at SummerSlam 2016, Bálor has found success in capturing several mid-card titles and tag team titles but has yet to reclaim a world championship.

Some speculate that Bálor has been living in the shadow of his former partner, Damien, ever since Damien's triumph at WrestleMania 40, where he secured the World Heavyweight Championship.

There's anticipation for a potential clash between Bálor and Priest. Such a matchup could be a defining moment for Bálor, potentially propelling him back into the world title picture and cementing his legacy as one of WWE's top competitors.

1. Jey Uso

It's widely acknowledged that Jey Uso is one of WWE's most beloved superstars despite his notable absence from the singles title scene. Jey's career has been largely defined by his remarkable tag team partnership with his brother Jimmy Uso, a duo that's rightfully earned its place among the all-time greats in tag team wrestling. Additionally, he played a pivotal role in establishing the formidable Bloodline faction, standing alongside his brother Jimmy Uso and their cousin Roman Reigns.

Despite a heartfelt face turn, Jey's quest for singles gold has remained elusive. Numerous opportunities have presented themselves, only to be diminished by outside interference or unfortunate circumstances. However, despite these setbacks, Jey continues to command unwavering support from the WWE Universe.

As fans eagerly cheer for Jey's success, they anticipate the moment when he finally ascends to singles glory, a moment that will undoubtedly be celebrated by fans around the world.
