Who are the current champions in WWE and who do I think will beat them?
WWE WORLD CHAMPION
Current: AJ Styles
Next: John Cena
Explanation: It shouldn't be Randy Orton, I doubt it will be Dolph Ziggler, and since Dean Ambrose is who AJ Styles beat in the first place, John Cena is the best choice.
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.
Current: T.J. Perkins
Next: Noam Dar
Explanation: Call me crazy, but I've got a feeling Dar is going to be the next champion rather than some of the other guys who seem to have priority over him like Gran Metalik, Jack Gallagher, Cedric Alexander and whatnot.
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
Current: Heath Slater and Rhyno
Next: The Usos
Explanation: This might happen as soon as Tuesday night, hahaha.
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
Current: Becky Lynch
Next: Alexa Bliss
Explanation: I naturally think Nikki Bella is the top star beyond Becky, but something is telling me not to count out Alexa as the next champion instead.
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?
