Every superstar has a dream of being in the WWE at some point in time. Once they reach the big leagues, then the sky’s the limit for a superstar. Sometimes a superstar ascension in the company is not how everyone really expects. With the roster that WWE has today, it is tough to give everyone a title run and a push. Tv time becomes non-existent for some guys, and that makes superstars unhappy and want to leave. Superstars will look to take their talents to other promotions and gain success there some times they make a return to WWE, but that is a rare instance. Here are five WWE superstars that could potentially leave in 2020
This one might be a bit of a stretch, John Cena has not been on live tv since the RAW reunion show in July. Before that, the last time he was in Raw was in January. There have been numerous reports that Cena will not see as much tv time due to his acting career. Cena is a 16-time world champion. Cena is the host of Are You Smarter Than A Fifth Grader on Nick and is suppose to be in upcoming movies Suicide Squad 2 and Fast and Furious 9. Would not be surprised if he decides to hang up the boots in 2020.
WWE needs to let the Undertaker retire. There were many times where we thought the Deadman has wrestled his last match. In 2014 when he lost the streak to Brock Lesnar, people felt that was the end of his career. He should have walked away after he beat Lesnar at Summerslam. Undertaker has come back to wrestle for some reason the guy is in good shape for being 54. It was reported that Undertaker was working a deal with WWE. He wrestled Goldberg in a dismal match at the crown jewel event. Undertaker retiring in 2020 could be possible.
Asuka leaving the company would not be a surprise to anyone. WWE has written her off as a singles competitor and paired her off with Kairi Sane. The WWE presented her as this star in NXT running through the division basically going undefeated. Then she gets called up and continues to go on the streak and eventually wins the title but loses it and that’s it. Asuka’s push is done, and now she is barely on tv. It’s to the point where she does journalism in her free time. She was a major star in Japan, and if she decides to go back, it would not be a bad idea.
Shinsuke Nakumara’s arrival to WWE was well received as the king of healthy style made his debut. Nakumara was two-time NXT champion and had some incredible matches in NXT. He made his debut on the main roster but did not get the treatment he got in NXT. Nakumara was called up to the main list at the wrong time. When he got called up, he did not receive that push on the main roster. It was not until Wrestlemania 34 that Nakumara saw time in the main event picture when he faced AJ Styles the match everyone wanted on the big stage. The game had a bad ending and Nakumara would turn heel, and that would begin his spiral down. Although he won some single titles, his gimmick just does not suit him. His current storyline with Sami Zayn is just odd, and Nakamura with a cape is also strange. Not giving Nakamura creative freedom will be the reason he leaves the company.
1. Finn Balor
There has been speculation that Balor could leave the company soon. I mean would you blame him after becoming the first-ever Universal Title holder in 2015 he was forced to relinquish the title after he won it due to injuries. He would be out of action for months, and once he came back, he would never get his shot. At times Balor was used to put over other talents. Balor has not reached the push he deserves since he’s been injured. At times when you think that this could be Balor’s time to shine he loses a match, he is supposed to win. He has won the Intercontinental champion twice, and that is it. Just like Nakamura, Balor had more success in NXT then the main roster. Balor is in great shape and just turned 38, WWE needs to realize what they have before it is gone.
