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: He either wins at the Royal Rumble or they drag this out further, but by the end of WrestleMania's finale, he will have won his 16th world title.
WWE UNIVERSAL CHAMPION
Current: Kevin Owens
Next: Finn Balor or Roman Reigns
Explanation: Now that Roman Reigns has lost the United States Championship, I'm worried he'll beat Kevin Owens at the Royal Rumble. I'd much, much rather see Finn Balor come back to win it down the line, whether at WrestleMania or beyond that point.
Current: Dean Ambrose
Next: Baron Corbin
Explanation: Call it a hunch.
UNITED STATES CHAMPION
Current: Chris Jericho
Next: Kevin Owens?
Explanation: If WWE cops out and has Reigns go into WrestleMania as the Universal champion, then Jericho and Owens will fight at Mania for the United States title and I think Owens will win it.
Current: Rich Swann
Explanation: I'm really digging Neville as a heel in this division, so I hope he takes the belt asap.
RAW TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS
Current: Cesaro and Sheamus
Next: Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows
Explanation: Somewhere down the line, The Club has to win the titles, so why not next?
SMACKDOWN TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS
Current: American Alpha
Next: The Usos
Explanation: There's no better heel tag team on SmackDown to dethrone American Alpha than The Usos, unless The Wyatt Family simply win them back.
RAW WOMEN'S CHAMPION
Explanation: SO sick and tired of Charlotte as champion. Bayley needs to win this as soon as humanly possible.
SMACKDOWN WOMEN'S CHAMPION
Current: Alexa Bliss
Next: Nikki Bella
Explanation: Since Becky Lynch was the one Alexa defeated to win the title, the only one on the same level is Nikki Bella. I expect this to go down around WrestleMania.
Current: Shinsuke Nakamura
Next: Bobby Roode
Explanation: I've been expecting the transition from Joe to Nakamura to Roode for months and I'm not going to change that any time soon.
NXT TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS
Next: The Authors of Pain
Explanation: I expected TM-61 to beat The Revival and then lose to The Authors of Pain, so since Johnny Gargano and Tommaso Ciampa have the belts instead, let's just skip over TM-61 and flip things around. The Authors of Pain should win the titles next and then lose them to Nick Miller and Shane Thorne sometime in 2017, unless SAnitY somewhere gets thrown in the mix.
NXT WOMEN'S CHAMPION
Next: Ember Moon
Explanation: Makes sense, right?
UNITED KINGDOM CHAMPION
Current: Tyler Bate
Next: Pete Dunne
Explanation: After the performance he put on and the way they prioritized him, you've got to assume Pete Dunne is next in line, although that seems like the easy answer and they may go a different route.
