Who are the current champions in WWE and who do I think will beat them?
WWE WORLD CHAMPION
Current: Dean Ambrose
Next: AJ Styles
Explanation: Survivor Series...nope, looks like they're doing this at Backlash.
WWE UNIVERSAL CHAMPION
Current: Kevin Owens
Next: Seth Rollins
Explanation: I was hoping for a babyface Seth Rollins to challenge a WWE World Heavyweight Champion Kevin Owens at WrestleMania, and it looks like some of the details might be different, but we might get the same kind of thing going on. Sweet!
Current: The Miz
Next: Apollo Crews
Explanation: Nobody stands out as a better candidate to dethrone The Miz on the SmackDown roster than Apollo Crews. If The Miz were a heel, I'd be picking Baron Corbin for this spot, who I think will be the one to take the belt off Crews down the line, but first it has to go to a babyface, and Crews is right at that midcard level to receive such a push.
UNITED STATES CHAMPION
Next: Sami Zayn
Explanation: Rusev may be holding onto this belt for quite some time, but right now if I were to venture a guess, I would say the three likely candidates to be next in line are Cesaro, Sami Zayn and Neville. Part of me is thinking Neville has the best chances since he's not on the same level as the other two right now (he's on the Neville Level) and while the other two can fight in main event matches, Neville has some time to go. A midcard title reign could suit him well. However, with the Best of Seven Series not being specified as a title shot for the Universal Championship, we could very well see Cesaro use this on the United States Championship instead. These two kind of cancel each other out, so fuck it, I'm going with Sami Zayn instead.
RAW TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS
Current: The New Day
Next: Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows
Explanation: The New Day can't keep the belts forever, and right now, there aren't any heels who will be better suited to handle that responsibility down the line than Anderson and Gallows.
SMACKDOWN TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS
Next: The Usos
Explanation: The closer we get to Backlash without the bracket being shown, the more I think The Usos are going to defeat American Alpha and turn heel.
RAW WOMEN'S CHAMPION
Explanation: I'm not a fan of Charlotte having this belt again, so I hope Bayley comes up soon and wins it.
SMACKDOWN WOMEN'S CHAMPION
Next: Becky Lynch
Explanation: If Becky isn't the favorite to win, she's the long con with Natalya or Nikki Bella winning it now, just to keep it warm for her.
Current: Shinsuke Nakamura
Next: Bobby Roode
Explanation: He has to be the next in line, doesn't he?
NXT TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS
Current: The Revival
Explanation: I didn't think American Alpha would lose the belts back to The Revival, so I really don't know where the belts are going now. It could go to Johnny Gargano and Tommaso Ciampa or Nick Miller and Shane Thorne, but I'm leaning toward the latter for the moment.
NXT WOMEN'S CHAMPION
Next: Ember Moon
Explanation: Makes sense, right?
