This will be coming as a shock but when has WWE ever refrained from shocking us all with jaw-dropping moments and believe this or not but the heel turns are the worst.

At the moment, Santos Escobar definitely has the upper hand and is pulling off a phenomenal run in the industry, but you never know when does WWE decide to break the faction again that was revived after a couple of decades. And that coming in the form of Santos Escobar challenging Rey for the title, well, isn’t it intriguing?
#2 Grayson Waller
After a brilliant display against Edge, Grayson Waller would be intrigued to take on the icon of Rey Mysterio. However, this is where it gets tricky.

It is needless to say that Grayson Waller has been impressive but Rey dropping the title to Waller? Well, that would be slightly eyesore unless Waller showcase further brilliance. But he can always challenge Rey for the belt around his waist.
#3 WWE Fastlane 2023 Predictions: Austin Theory vs Rey Mysterio
The man who was beaten for the title will also be the one who can attempt to still the gold from the Luchador, hoping to get a shot at redemption. Being honest, Theory has turned into a pretty disliked heel in terms of kayfabe, and will love to continue what he has been doing so well over the past few months and what better than to challenge Rey?
