Erick Rowan
Luke Harper
Chad Gable
Jason Jordan

Bonus question: Who, currently in NXT, do you think will make it in the main roster and will be there 5 years from now?

I will add my predictions later. It will be interesting to look back at this 5 years from now.

By the way, to my future self, if you're reading this in 2022, what the fuck are you still doing on this forum?

Too many names, but I'll go with a few I think would be unconventional opinions.

Alexa Bliss - Released (8 time women's champion)
Bayley - Released ( 4 times women's champion )
Sasha banks - 12 times women's champion
Charlotte - 15 times women champion on the verge of hitting 16
Carmella - one of the top heels on the roster, forming a team with Liv Morgan / Enzo and Cass
Becky - 3 time women's champion but even more of an enhancement talent.

No other woman on the current roster will be wrestling but that won't be a surprise, Lana may still be in the company but I doubt it as I think Rusev will have gone to another promotion by now who allows him to shine.

Actually looking at the list I don't imagine most superstars will still be here, WWE are signing up so many people I'm expecting a high turn over.

The Miz, part time/part time B list actor
Mojo Rawley - Failed main eventer now residing in the mid card
Nakamura - Back into New Japan after struggling with the language but having a short successful spell
Zayn - exactly where he is now, still feuding with Owens.
Braun - one of the biggest Stars in WWE. Multi time world champion
Wyatt - Enhancement talent, will still be randomly calling out and losing to random faces.
Balor - Cruserweight wrestler
Enzo/Big Cass - either released or acting as Carmellas mouth piece and muscle. Enzo won't be a in ring competitor by 2020
Cesaro - will have left WWE and will still be remembered as one of the best wrestlers to never win the world title.

Jinder Mahal - 3 time world champion, Face of the company in India but will die young due to being pressured into taking so many Roids in order to give him the perfect look to bring in the market.

I don't think many of the other superstars will be in the WWE, or at least not in any serious capacity, I imagine a lot will find their way to other promotions and people like Kendrick will pack up altogether. WWE have signed far too much talent to be able to fit everyone on the show, there will be a lot of cleaning to do.
