WWE fans eagerly anticipate the emergence of the company's next breakout star, with many suggesting that LA Knight and a recently drafted superstar have the potential to make a significant impact this year. Knight's popularity continues to grow despite lukewarm booking, with the 40-year-old veteran being widely tipped for success.
In the build-up to WrestleMania 39, Knight believed the event could not go without him. However, he was not booked for the show, which only fueled his determination to succeed. Knight has since bounced back and secured a notable victory over Butch of The Brawling Brutes during a recent episode of SmackDown.
WWE Fans Pick Top Breakout Stars
With the search for a breakout star in full swing, WWE's official Twitter account asked fans for their thoughts. The thread generated a tremendous response, with several names being put forward, including Solo Sikoa, Carmelo Hayes, Dominik Mysterio, and Dakota Kai.
However, Grayson Waller and LA Knight stood out the most, with their entertaining rivalry in NXT leaving fans hopeful of a repeat on the main roster. Former WWE manager Dutch Mantell has been particularly vocal in his support for the LA Knight, comparing him to Hall of Famer Stone Cold Steve Austin.
Mantell believes that Knight has the potential to become a massive star but also warns him not to "screw it up." LA Knight's charisma and growing popularity make him a fascinating prospect, and he can take his career to the next level.
With Waller also in contention for the breakout star accolade, seeing how both superstars perform on SmackDown following this year's draft will be interesting. Overall, the search for the next breakout star is always an exciting time for the WWE fans, and this year looks set to be no exception.
With Knight and Waller leading the pack, it will be intriguing to see which superstar can make the most significant impact and emerge as the next big thing in WWE.
