Who are the current champions in WWE and who do I think will beat them?
WWE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION
Next: Dean Ambrose
Explanation: As of 11/24, here's what I'm expecting to happen. Roman Reigns loses his match against Sheamus at TLC and possibly another rematch at Royal Rumble, wherein Triple H screws him over and they build towards a match between those two at WrestleMania. Sheamus goes into WrestleMania as the champion to face Dean Ambrose, who wins the Royal Rumble.
Current: Kevin Owens
Next: Sami Zayn
Explanation: I was able to call Kevin Owens as the next champ and at the time I made that prediction, I figured we would see him hold it until Sami Zayn was back in action. He'd be able to drop that belt to Zayn as a replacement for the NXT Championship that went a different route.
UNITED STATES CHAMPION
Current: Alberto Del Rio
Next: I don't care.
Explanation: Damn it. I don't care who is the next champion, so long as they win it sooner than later. I can't sit through any more super long, boring Del Rio title reigns. He had countless times to make me think he was a good champion and he failed every time he had a belt. John Cena was an awesome US champ and I can't help but feel Del Rio's going to kill the belt again.
TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS
Current: The New Day
Next: The Usos
Explanation: They've pretty much got to win it at some point, right?
Next: Sasha Banks
Explanation: Considering how good Sasha Banks and Bayley have performed and the fact that they received the main event of NXT TakeOver: Respect, I'd have to imagine she's the next in line over the likes of Paige, Brie Bella, Alicia Fox, Becky Lynch, Naomi, Tamina and especially the people who aren't in the Divas Revolution.
Current: Finn Balor
Next: Samoa Joe
Explanation: Balor defeating Owens got to a point where it became predictable, but now that Balor has the title, I'm not too sure what is coming up next. It could go to someone like Apollo Crews or Hideo Itami or it could go to Baron Corbin if they build him up enough. Still, if someone is out there that stands out to me, it's Samoa Joe, especially after his heel turn.
NXT TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS
Current: Dash & Dawson
Next: Jason Jordan and Chad Gable
Explanation: I'm not thrilled about The Mechanics holding these belts, and I've been unimpressed with the past few decisions made in this division. I keep expecting Enzo Amore and Colin Cassady to win the belts, but it keeps not happening, so I'm not bothering to guess that this time. Instead, I'm going with my second favorite team in NXT. I could see WWE making Enzo and Cass lose at TakeOver: London to give Dash and Dawson a boost before they drop the belts to Jordan and Gable.
NXT WOMEN'S CHAMPION
Next: Eva Marie or Nia Jax
Explanation: I don't expect Nia Jax to win the belt at TakeOver: London, but she could. Bayley should be sticking around in NXT for a while still, and I think it's better to keep the belt on her than to have her chase it again. Part of me is thinking Eva Marie will get it around WrestleMania time before Bayley is called up.
