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: Brock Lesnar
Prediction for Next Champion: Cain Velasquez

Explanation: I really, really hope it's Kevin Owens winning the belt before WrestleMania or at WrestleMania. I'd rather it be before. However, what do I think is going to happen? Cain Velasquez :(

current WWE Universal champion title holder

WWE UNIVERSAL CHAMPIONSHIP

Current Universal Champion: Bray Wyatt
Prediction for Next Champion: Roman Reigns

Explanation: It pretty much has to be one of the main three babyfaces of Braun Strowman, Daniel Bryan or Roman Reigns, right? I don't think they're turning The Fiend babyface. What I do think will happen, unfortunately, is that they'll make the mistake of going with Fiend vs. Reigns and not realizing that Reigns will get booed in that scenario, which will make WrestleMania another "booo Roman, we're upset at one of the main events" situations. WWE doesn't learn.

current WWE Raw Women's champion title holder

RAW WOMEN'S CHAMPIONSHIP

Current Raw Women's Champion: Becky Lynch
Prediction for Next Champion: Charlotte Flair, Ronda Rousey or Shayna Baszler

Explanation: This all depends on the possibility of Rousey or Baszler being on Raw any time soon.

current WWE SmackDown Women's champion title holder

SMACKDOWN WOMEN'S CHAMPIONSHIP

Current SmackDown Women's Champion: Bayley
Prediction for Next Champion: Ronda Rousey or Lacey Evans

Explanation: Either Rousey returns and wins it from Bayley or they're setting up Evans to be the top babyface, somehow.

current WWE Intercontinental champion title holder

INTERCONTINENTAL CHAMPIONSHIP

Current Intercontinental Champion: Shinsuke Nakamura
Prediction for Next Champion: Daniel Bryan

Explanation: Worth a guess.

current WWE United States champion title holder

UNITED STATES CHAMPIONSHIP

Current United States Champion: AJ Styles
Prediction for Next Champion: Aleister Black

Explanation: I truly have no clue. Ricochet and Cedric Alexander already did this. Buddy Murphy is a heel. So are Andrade, Samoa Joe, Randy Orton, Bobby Lashley, etc. Braun Strowman, maybe? Rey Mysterio? I can't see it being Humberto Carrillo or Akira Tozawa. Rusev seems like an odd choice. No Sin Cara. I guess I'll just go with Aleister Black or Kevin Owens.

current WWE Raw Tag Team champion title holder

RAW TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS

Current Raw Tag Team Champions: The Viking Raiders
Prediction for Next Champions: AOP

Explanation: They should be the only viable threats. The Street Profits wouldn't make as much sense, as they're babyfaces.

current WWE SmackDown Tag Team champions title holder

SMACKDOWN TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS

Current SmackDown Tag Team Champions: The New Day
Prediction for Next Champions: I don't think WWE knows.

Explanation: I'm imagining that WWE is really treating these belts like a "meh, we'll figure it out" day by day booking, rather than that there is an actual game plan for the next bunch of months. I think The New Day only beat The Revival to be a "surprise" title change before Survivor Series and to give the Manchester crowd a pop, and there's no outline of future challengers and such.

current WWE Women's Tag Team champion title holder

WWE WOMEN'S TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS

Current Women's Tag Team Champions: The Kabuki Warriors
Prediction for Next Champions: No idea.

Explanation: I don't think WWE has the slightest clue who the next champions will be.

current WWE 24/7 champion title holder

24/7 CHAMPIONSHIP

Current 24/7 Champion: R-Truth
Prediction for Next Champion: n/a

Explanation: By its sheer nature, WWE will literally do completely random things with this title at completely random moments and none of it will mean absolutely anything. That means there's ZERO point in trying to predict who the next champion will be.

current WWE NXT champion title holder

NXT CHAMPIONSHIP

Current NXT Champion: Adam Cole
Prediction for Next Champions: No idea.

Explanation: With Finn Balor's heel turn and how Tommaso Ciampa is very much still in league with Johnny Gargano and could possibly win the tag titles as #DIY instead of going for the singles, I'm left unsure of any solid options to pick from that I'd feel confident in staking my prediction on.

current WWE NXT Women's champion title holder

NXT WOMEN'S CHAMPIONSHIP

Current NXT Women's Champion: Shayna Baszler
Prediction for Next Champion: Toni Storm

Explanation: I had thought Candice LeRae would win it, but that didn't pan out. I can't imagine Mia Yim, Rhea Ripley, Bianca Belair, Io Shirai or anyone else really stepping in and beating Baszler after having already lost to her. Toni Storm hasn't made her regular NXT debut yet (as of me writing this) and maybe that's because they want to hold off and put the belt on her later down the line.

current WWE NXT Tag Team champion title holder

NXT TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS

Current NXT Tag Team Champions: The Undisputed ERA
Prediction for Next Champions: #DIY or a new team

Explanation: At the time of the title change to The Undisputed ERA, I don't feel confident about any babyface team taking the belts next, but I'm very heavily leaning toward #DIY. I think Johnny Gargano and Tommaso Ciampa are going to work in singles, but they'll eventually cross paths in the tag team scene again and win these titles around WrestleMania, when the bigger names are all trying to find a spot on the card. Granted, WWE could do something surprising and put the belts on Breezango or a team of Jordan Myles and Keith Lee or something, but that's more of a long shot.

current WWE North American champion title holder

NXT NORTH AMERICAN CHAMPIONSHIP

Current North American Champion: Roderick Strong
Prediction for Next Champion: Matt Riddle or Keith Lee

Explanation: This title is tough to call. It can be used as a midcard launching pad for someone like Jordan Myles, Kushida, etc, but those guys might be more in the cruiserweight side of things. There hasn't been much going on for Bronson Reed, so he's lower on the totem pole than someone like Keith Lee, who I think has a HUUUGE chance of winning this belt. Pete Dunne is also a possibility. It could even go back to Velveteen Dream, but I doubt it, as I think he'll be more of a main event player. More so, I think this is going to Matt Riddle. I feel like his heat may be real and that might prevent him from being the top dog, but they want him to be valuable, so if he fights Strong and wins the midcard belt, he's in a prominent spot that they don't have to rely on quite the same. It's somewhat humbling while also being a push.

current WWE Cruiserweight champion title holder

NXT CRUISERWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP

Current Cruiserweight Champion: Lio Rush
Prediction for Next Champion: No idea

Explanation: I'll be updating this as soon as I think of something, but for now, I have no clue.

current WWE United Kingdom champion title holder

UNITED KINGDOM CHAMPIONSHIP

Current United Kingdom Champion: WALTER
Prediction for Next Champion: Ilja Dragunov or Dave Mastiff.

Explanation: I have no idea, but I'm starting to think it's someone who wasn't on the NXT UK roster when WALTER won the title. For now, I'll just say Dragunov or Mastiff.

current WWE United Kingdom women's champion title holder

NXT UNITED KINGDOM WOMEN'S CHAMPIONSHIP

Current United Kingdom Women's Champion: Kay Lee Ray
Prediction for Next Champion: Tegan Nox or Piper Niven

Explanation: If Tegan Nox isn't the next champion, I assume Piper Niven wins the belt. Those are the two who stand out the most. Maybe someone else like Dakota Kai can get in there, though.

current WWE NXT UK tag team champion title holder

NXT UNITED KINGDOM TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS

Current United Kingdom Tag Team Champions: Gallus
Prediction for Next Champions: Imperium or Moustache Mountain

Explanation: I can't see The Hunt being the next to win the titles and they're the only other babyface tag team, really. But maybe Imperium takes over and Gallus has to play babyface by default?
