We're at a very interesting crossroads right now in the WWE, with regards to the main event picture across both Monday Night Raw and SmackDown Live.
The days of the old-school superstars sitting pretty at the top of the card is gone, with the likes of John Cena making do with whatever the creative team are giving him - which is no title shots - while other big names like Batista, CM Punk, HHH and more just aren't around.
That leaves the WWE in the position of having to make new stars, and they may have just found the next big one.

Big Cass = Big Money
According to a report from PW Insider, the higher ups at the WWE are incredibly happy with how well Big Cass has been doing lately. In fact, they see the 30-year-old as a potential major player in the WWE for years to come.
"This may come as no surprise but there continues to be big backstage praise on Big Cass," the report said.
"Many within WWE remain very high on Cass and see money when they look at him."
That bit of information really shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone, considering the fact that Cass beat Rusev, the current United States champion, on Monday Night Raw earlier this week to make it through to the fatal four-way match next week that will decide the next Universal Champion.
Cass is already in a title match for one of the big two belts. That should tell you all you need to know about how highly he is rated.
Move Over Roman
When you consider another bit of news that came out which said the WWE originally wanted to keep Roman Reigns away from the title completely for the next few months, one has to wonder if Vince McMahon and co have already found a replacement for Reigns.
A 7-foot tall, athletic, smart, good-talking replacement. And you can't teach that. Literally, the WWE wish Reigns was as likeable as Big Cass.
