WWE has been the world’s largest wrestling company for decades now and the company has helped some talents become major stars over the years. However, the product has been criticized by some who feel that WWE is having trouble creating new stars as of late.
Former WWE Champion Jinder Mahal knows what it’s like to reach to the top of the industry, and during a recent interview with Inside The Ropes he disputed claims that WWE is no longer able to create new stars.
“Yeah, they absolutely do. That’s what we’re in the business of, right? Just being a fan myself. So I grew up first the Hulk Hogan era. Then the new stars came Bret Hart, Shawn Michaels, Undertaker, Mankind, right? And the new stars came the next generation – Rock, Stone Cold and then the next generation after that, Randy Orton and John Cena, Batista, right? And then the next generation after that, I guess, is possibly my generation, right? Me, Drew McIntyre, Big E, Bobby Lashley, Kofi Kingston, Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins.”
Jinder Mahal also went on to name a few NXT stars who have potential while saying that the next generation is already on the way.
“NXT 2.0 just got revamped. There’s Bron Breakker. You know, that’s a future WWE Champion, I believe. LA Knight, blown away by him. This guy has everything, the look, the charisma, in-ring, everything. This guy could be WWE Champion. So I think the next generation is already coming.”
