Re: Where do you see these guys in 5 years? (II)

Most of those dudes are already 30+ and will be gone.

Shinsuke is the brightest one and Apollo Crews is only 29. He just needs the right Heel gimmick. He needs it more than Roman and Cena combined. He has so much potential he just needs to grow his hair out our something. So far he is just another Bald, black buff guy. I have seen to many of these black men. He can do all the fancy flips he wants he still looks bland.

Divas side is way too hard to calculate.

Will they keep doing the hot-potato reigns?
How many will get fedup the horsewomen+Bliss show?
NXT doesn't look bright, does it?
After Charlotte and Alexa fued then what?

Re: Where do you see these guys in 5 years? (II)

-Apollo Crews: Released or jobbing to everyone or simply off TV
-Big Cass: split up from Enzo and having a push as a singles competitor (maybe Enzo as a mouthpiece at some point)
-Enzo Amore: split from Big Cass, maybe a shot at the Cruiserweight title, and being the mouthpiece of Big Cass at some point in time
-Bray Wyatt: Ridiculous booking will not stop at any point, build him up in promos to lose feuds, but will get more wins than losses than those previous years. Not in the main event though, at least not consistently
-Cesaro: Still wandering in the mid-card
-Braun Strowman: 2 time WWE Champion by that point
-Heath Slater: completely forgotten about or released
-Finn Balor: Universal Champion once again, but mostly in the upper mid card
-Karl Anderson: Club still kicking ass, maybe a Bullet Club part 2 stable will be formed
-Luke Gallows: see Karl Anderson
-Kalisto: Cruiserweight champion once but mostly irrelevant
-The Miz: still in the upper midcard US Title/Intercontinental title scene
-R-Truth: Released or off TV
-Austin Aries: multiple time Cruiserweight champion, might even get a main show feud or two
-Jack Gallagher: still wondering about in the Cruiserweight division, will get the title at one point
-TJ Perkins: irrelevant
-Cedric Alexander: irrelevant
-Rich Swann: irrelevant
-Brian Kendrick: released
-Baron Corbin: upper midcard, maybe WWE Champion at one point
-Jinder Mahal: remember that Canadian dude that got a push because hes indian? Yeah neither do I
-Erick Rowan: irrelevant
-Luke Harper: jobbing out in the midcard unfortunately
-Chad Gable: irrelevant
-Jason Jordan: irrelevant
-Big E: Still spreading the POWER OF POSITIVITY
-Xavier Woods: see Big E
-Kofi Kingston: see Xavier Woods
-Rusev: Im gambling here but hopefully the WWE sees his worth and he will be pushed into a main eventer
-Sami Zayn: He will get an underdog story of the year moment and win the WWE title, I can just feel it
-Kevin Owens: constantly in the main event, killing and tearing shit apart
-Shinsuke Nakamura: given a mouthpiece and in the main event scene always, possible first ever Asian WWE Champion
-Mojo Rawley: irrelevant
-Tye Dilinger: irrelevant
-Tyler Breeze: irrelevant
-Fandango: irrelevant

For the women's division I don't really care but I see Charlotte having some kind of record amount of title reigns

And for the bonus question from NXT, I see Bobby Roode as the person with the most potential to get called up and still rip shit up in the main roster
