WWE's Current Champions & Future Champions Predictions | Smark Out Moment
current WWE x champion title holder

Who are the current champions in WWE?
Who do I think will beat them for the title?

current WWE world heavyweight champion title holder

WWE CHAMPIONSHIP

Current WWE Champion: Roman Reigns

Prediction for Next Champion: n/a?

Explanation: We'll see how they plan on splitting these unified titles after WrestleMania.

current WWE Universal champion title holder

WWE UNIVERSAL CHAMPIONSHIP

Current Universal Champion: Roman Reigns

Prediction for Next Champion: The Rock

Explanation: I'm confident WWE has absolutely no plan right now for who the next in line may be. The idea is just "Reigns will retain until we think of something or we need to put the belt on someone else for some reason." However, if there are two people who could be considered a bigger priority to win the title instead of Reigns holding it until someone like Gable Steveson gets his footing, it would be either Brock Lesnar or The Rock. Considering how the bigger story overall is Rock vs Roman, maybe there's a chance they give The Rock the title at the end of all this and he has a short reign (and maybe even loses it back to Roman and they start the whole cycle up again).

current WWE Raw Women's champion title holder

RAW WOMEN'S CHAMPIONSHIP

Current Raw Women's Champion: Bianca Belair

Prediction for Next Champion: No idea at the moment.

Explanation: WrestleMania isn't even over. Let's see what happens in a few days at least before I just randomly toss out Charlotte Flair's name or something.

current WWE SmackDown Women's champion title holder

SMACKDOWN WOMEN'S CHAMPIONSHIP

Current SmackDown Women's Champion: Ronda Rousey

Prediction for Next Champion: Becky Lynch

Explanation: WrestleMania 39.

current WWE Intercontinental champion title holder

WWE INTERCONTINENTAL CHAMPIONSHIP

Current Intercontinental Champion: Ricochet

Prediction for Next Champion: Happy Corbin or Madcap Moss

Explanation: I wasn't expecting Ricochet to beat Sami Zayn, so that was a pleasant surprise. Obviously, the next candidate is more than likely a heel who is already on SmackDown, rather than being switched over (although that's a possibility, always). Given that lineup, Happy Corbin is the one who stands out to me the most, though Madcap Moss has a shot, too.

current WWE United States champion title holder

WWE UNITED STATES CHAMPIONSHIP

Current United States Champion: Theory

Prediction for Next Champion: Tommaso Ciampa

Explanation: Let's keep the title on Theory for a good while and let him have a solid run. Then, when its time for him to move on to something better, maybe the best person in the range of this belt will be someone who is currently on SmackDown or NXT. However, in the meantime, looking at the pure Raw roster, I'll go with Tommaso Ciampa (even though I think he'll turn heel and not be in the best position for this).

current WWE Raw Tag Team champion title holder

RAW TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP

Current Raw Tag Team Champions: RK-Bro

Prediction for Next Champions: The Usos

Explanation: It sure seems like WWE is in this "The Bloodline should have all the titles they can and unify things" mood, doesn't it? Considering the level of credibility The Usos have, they're the best suited to dethrone Randy Orton and Riddle even without having the other belts.

current WWE SmackDown Tag Team champions title holder

SMACKDOWN TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP

Current SmackDown Tag Team Champions: The Usos

Prediction for Next Champions: The New Day

Explanation: I don't think WWE has any idea, so the best thing I can do is guess the top team. More than likely, two singles stars will be paired together to win this instead of it being a proper tag team.

current WWE 
  Team champion title holder

WWE WOMEN'S TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP

Current Women's Tag Team Champions: Naomi and Sasha Banks

Prediction for Next Champions: Two randomly paired people

Explanation: Knowing WWE, they'll put two people together like they did with most of the previous pairs. They'll wait until something manifests out of thin air and just go with the flow. There's no way there are actual plans in mind of building to something.

current WWE 24/7 champion title holder

WWE 24/7 CHAMPIONSHIP

Current 24/7 Champion: Dana Brooke

Projections: This belt is meaningless and changes hands at random. It almost entirely revolves around a few names. Currently, those are predominantly Dana Brooke, Reggie and Tamina with the regulars Akira Tozawa and R-Truth. There isn't any reason to try to predict the next one.

current WWE NXT champion title holder

NXT CHAMPIONSHIP

Current NXT Champion: Bron Breakker

Prediction for Next Champions: Carmelo Hayes

Explanation: If not Carmelo Hayes, the other options I could see taking the title are Grayson Waller and in a distant third, Von Wagner.

current WWE NXT Women's champion title holder

NXT WOMEN'S CHAMPIONSHIP

Current NXT Women's Champion: Mandy Rose

Prediction for Next Champion: Nikkita Lyons

Explanation: You don't see her being a big star?

current WWE North American champion title holder

NXT NORTH AMERICAN CHAMPIONSHIP

Current North American Champion: Cameron Grimes

Prediction for Next Champion: Grayson Waller

Explanation: I don't think Waller will be the next NXT champion, so this is the next best thing.

current WWE NXT Tag Team champion title holder

NXT TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP

Current NXT Tag Team Champions: Pretty Deadly

Prediction for Next Champions: The Creed Brothers

Explanation: I thought this would happen at Stand & Deliver. Clearly, I was wrong. After MSK vacated the titles, I then figured Pretty Deadly would get the belts next so The Creed Brothers have something to chase. Let's see if that ultimately plays out. But there's always a chance Dexter Lumis and Duke Hudson win the titles instead, or something.

current WWE NXT Tag Team champion title holder

NXT WOMEN'S TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP

Current NXT Tag Team Champions: Toxic Attraction (Gigi Dolin & Jacy Jayne)

Prediction for Next Champions: A team that doesn't exist yet

Explanation: With the way WWE approaches tag teams, especially in the women's division, especially in NXT, just look at the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic and you'll see no teams really exist. Maybe Cora Jade teams with someone to win the belts, since they passed over her for the NXT Women's Championship.

current WWE NXT United Kingdom champion title holder

NXT UNITED KINGDOM CHAMPIONSHIP

Current United Kingdom Champion: Ilja Dragunov

Prediction for Next Champion: Jordan Devlin

Explanation: Jordan Devlin keeps sticking out to me as the obvious choice, but they keep making it almost too obvious and circling around him. Is that just to dance around not putting the title on him too fast, or am I seeing something that isn't there? I get the sense they like him a lot, just like Dragunov, and that he's the logical next in line, so I'll keep him as my prediction until someone new comes along that convinces me otherwise.

current WWE United Kingdom women's champion title holder

NXT UNITED KINGDOM WOMEN'S CHAMPIONSHIP

Current United Kingdom Women's Champion: Meiko Satomura

Prediction for Next Champion: Blair Davenport

Explanation: Aoife Valkyrie originally was my pick. Then, it was Blair Davenport. I'm convinced she was going to win it in the match she got injured, so when she's able to return, I think they'll put the belt on her. If not Davenport, McKenzie having a relationship with Satomura. Maybe they go the route of the student overcoming the teacher.

current WWE NXT UK tag team champion title holder

NXT UNITED KINGDOM TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP

Current United Kingdom Tag Team Champions: Ashton Smith and Oliver Carter

Prediction for Next Champions: Die Familie

Explanation: Teoman and Rohan Raja, Rohan Raja and Charlie Dempsey, or a combination of the three working in tandem with the Freebird Rule.

current WWE NXT UK Heritage Cup champion title holder

NXT UNITED KINGDOM HERITAGE CUP

Current United Kingdom Heritage Cup Champion: Noam Dar

Prediction for Next Champions: Joe Coffey

Explanation: I had Noam Dar down as my next champion for SO long, and then switched it to Jordan Devlin only for Noam Dar to win it. Ha. So now, I'm going with my gut for as long as I can and I'm saying Joe Coffey wins this next. If it ends up being Rampage Brown, my second pick, grrr.
