In professional wrestling, a company must sign and build younger talent because wrestling is a young athlete’s sport. AEW has been around now for two years and, in that two years, has signed some of the best young athletes in the world. It is the job of the younger stars to take the place of their elders even if they think it’s still their time to shine. Professional wrestling companies must have wrestlers under the age of 30 to build them up to be that company’s next big star.

5. Jungle Boy (24)

Jungle Boy will be a future world champion in AEW at 24 years old he has a natural air of charisma and can fly around in the ring. Jungle Boy recently picked up his 50th win on AEW Dynamite this week, making him the first wrestler in AEW to do that. This feat shows just how important he is to the roster. Last month Jungle Boy won the Casino Battle Royal, which led to a fantastic match against world champion Kenny Omega at AEW Saturday night Dynamite special. Even though Jungle Boy didn’t win the match against Omega, it allowed fans to see that he is a future star in AEW.

4. Sammy Guevara (27)

Sammy Guevara is the type of talent that can only be held back by himself because of the maturing he needs to do outside the ring. Sammy Guevara has shown that he can be a great Heel and now an even better babyface for AEW. Sammy Guevara has the potential to be more than a highlight-reel performer because he is that good in the ring.

3. Darby Allin (28)

Darby Allin has evolved into one of the most popular stars in AEW because of the energy that he brings to the ring. Before Covid happened, there were only a few stars in the company who could match Darby’s popularity. When I think of Darby Allin, I see a young Jeff Hardy-type wrestler who can be a babyface wrestler for his whole professional wrestling career because of how relatable he is. Darby Allin has taken Jon Moxley and Cody Rhodes to the limit and matches, and he has already been a TNT champion and is being mentored by the Icon Sting. Beyond the dangerous spots, he is known for Darby Allin is a good wrestler who can help AEW in the long run.

2. Hangman’ Adam Page (29)

Adam Page will be turning 30 this month which is still prime years for a professional wrestler. I believe that by the end of 2021, Adam Page will be the AEW world champion. Adam Cole’s rise as the top babyface in AEW is some of the best storytelling in professional wrestling today. Adam Cole is the type of wrestler that fans can get behind because he makes mistakes and shows his struggles. Hangman Page is a great in-ring worker, and he is best when he is on the mic. When Hangman speaks, you listen because you believe every word that he says. We have seen him successful in the tag team division alongside Kenny Omega, but now is his time to be AEW’s number one guy. Page is just a few months away from being the face of AEW, which will be a fantastic ending to a story that AEW has been telling since its first event.

1.MJF (25)

MJF is the future of AEW because he has established himself as being the best heel in professional wrestling today in the company’s short history. I can see MJF being the top heel whose story never needs to be attached to a championship because of how good he is on the mic and in the ring. MJF has the type of charisma that can elevate anyone standing across from him in the ring. For AEW to have a talent like MJF is a huge deal because he has the aura that rivals some of the greatest wrestlers of all time.

AEW continues to build a strong roster that can be featured as top talents well into the next decade. It will be interesting to watch these individuals grow in the industry and become the main talents featured when the time comes.
