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

WWE INTERCONTINENTAL CHAMPIONSHIP

Current Intercontinental Champion: Shinsuke Nakamura
Prediction for Next Champion: Daniel Bryan, The Miz or Braun Strowman

Explanation: It seemed at first that The Miz was the next in line. Then, WWE's plans for Bryan to be the champion were thrown off. Then, they wanted to transition to Braun Strowman, and that didn't quite happen, either. I think this is all very much up in the air. Hell, it could be Sheamus or John Morrison or Mustafa Ali or Shorty G for all we know. I don't think WWE has a 100% guaranteed plan they feel they need to do.

current WWE United States champion title holder

WWE UNITED STATES CHAMPIONSHIP

Current United States Champion: Andrade
Prediction for Next Champion: Aleister Black

Explanation: It could be Ricochet, Samoa Joe, Rusev, or even Randy Orton, but I think it'll be Aleister Black's turn to win a belt around WrestleMania.

current WWE Raw Tag Team champion title holder

RAW TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP

Current Raw Tag Team Champions: Seth Rollins and Buddy Murphy
Prediction for Next Champions: The Viking Raiders, then AOP

Explanation: I'm assuming Rollins and Murphy are holding these belts so they can drop them back to The Viking Raiders and stall for the Road to WrestleMania. Then, AOP can fight The Viking Raiders at Mania itself and we'll have gotten 4 months out of one stable feuding with Erik and Ivar.

current WWE SmackDown Tag Team champions title holder

SMACKDOWN TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP

Current SmackDown Tag Team Champions: The New Day
Prediction for Next Champions: The Usos

Explanation: Shot in the dark.

current WWE Women's Tag Team champion title holder

WWE WOMEN'S TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP

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. Charlotte Flair and Natalya?

current WWE 24/7 champion title holder

WWE 24/7 CHAMPIONSHIP

Current 24/7 Champion: Mojo Rawley
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: Tommaso Ciampa

Explanation: Tommaso Ciampa is the easy pick, so I'll put him down for now. However, it could be Johnny Gargano, Velveteen Dream, Keith Lee, Matt Riddle, etc.

current WWE NXT Women's champion title holder

NXT WOMEN'S CHAMPIONSHIP

Current NXT Women's Champion: Rhea Ripley
Prediction for Next Champion: Bianca Belair

Explanation: If it isn't Belair, it's Io Shirai.

current WWE NXT Tag Team champion title holder

NXT TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP

Current NXT Tag Team Champions: The Undisputed ERA
Prediction for Next Champions: #DIY or Keith Lee and Dominik Dijakovic

Explanation: I don't think WWE has a solid game plan in mind for this, but I feel like if it isn't either of these two duos, then I'm at a loss for who else it could be.

current WWE North American champion title holder

NXT NORTH AMERICAN CHAMPIONSHIP

Current North American Champion: Keith Lee
Prediction for Next Champion: Damian Priest

Explanation: A few people I could see in the mix for this are Austin Theory, Damian Priest, Dominik Dijakovic...maybe someone on the outside. Screw it. I'll go with Priest.

current WWE Cruiserweight champion title holder

NXT CRUISERWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP

Current Cruiserweight Champion: Jordan Devlin
Prediction for Next Champion: Kushida or Isaiah "Swerve" Scott

Explanation: I hadn't thought Devlin would win this, so maybe that throws everything off. For now, I'll keep my original guesses of who I thought would beat Angel Garza, but maybe I need to revisit this.

current WWE United Kingdom champion title holder

NXT UNITED KINGDOM CHAMPIONSHIP

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

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 as nobody else has been booked as strong in comparison.

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: Piper Niven

Explanation: Piper Niven and Tegan Nox are the two I'm debating between. Then again, maybe this Valkyrie is someone to pay attention to (I haven't seen her yet as of this update) and she'll overtake that spot.

current WWE NXT UK tag team champion title holder

NXT UNITED KINGDOM TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP

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

Explanation: We're seeing more of Gallus against Imperium, so maybe my prediction that Gallus would be a default babyface is coming true and Imperium will win the belts.
