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: Dolph Ziggler
Next: Baron Corbin
Explanation: Um...maybe Corbin wins it? There aren't a lot of midcarders or upper-midcarders on SmackDown who could be in contention.
UNITED STATES CHAMPION
Current: Roman Reigns
Next: Braun Strowman
Explanation: There aren't many midcard heels on Raw, let alone ones that could realistically defeat Roman Reigns. Braun Strowman could be building up to a run with the belt, though.
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: I keep thinking this is a guarantee, and it keeps not happening, but c'mon...
RAW WOMEN'S CHAMPION
Current: Sasha Banks
Explanation: Sasha will eventually turn heel and drop the belt to Bayley, possibly at WrestleMania.
SMACKDOWN WOMEN'S CHAMPION
Current: Becky Lynch
Next: Nikki Bella
Explanation: I originally thought it would be Alexa, but she ended up being Becky's first feud, which ruled that out as a less likely route to go down than to just have Nikki win it, as she's the most popular woman outside of Becky.
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?
