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: Drew McIntyre

Prediction for Next Champion: Randy Orton

Explanation: While I don't necessarily feel like it's a given, I think tossing any other name out there other than Orton is a fool's game. However, once Hell in a Cell passes by, if McIntyre is still the champion, we need to talk about AJ Styles, Bray Wyatt and Sheamus as his biggest threats, likely for WrestleMania 37. If Randy Orton wins the title at HIAC, then this defaults to Edge being the next in line to take it from The Legend Killer.

current WWE Universal champion title holder

WWE UNIVERSAL CHAMPIONSHIP

Current Universal Champion: Roman Reigns

Prediction for Next Champion: Nobody until at least WrestleMania, if not well past that point.

Explanation: I doubt Otis is winning this. Frankly, I don't think WWE has any plans to take the title off Reigns until at least WrestleMania 37, but even that may be a stretch. Brock Lesnar is a possibility. The Rock could do it, if he's up for wrestling. Goldberg could win the title, but I think he'd likely just lose the match, instead.

current WWE Raw Women's champion title holder

RAW WOMEN'S CHAMPIONSHIP

Current Raw Women's Champion: Asuka

Prediction for Next Champion: Charlotte Flair

Explanation: Please give the belt to Shayna and not Nia Jax or Charlotte Flair. Please? It's probably going to be Flair. I should change this to Flair, shouldn't I? Okay. I changed it. If that does happen and Flair wins it from Asuka, I hope the game plan is to have Rhea Ripley win the Royal Rumble and beat Flair for the belt at WrestleMania to offset her loss from 36.

current WWE SmackDown Women's champion title holder

SMACKDOWN WOMEN'S CHAMPIONSHIP

Current SmackDown Women's Champion: Bayley

Prediction for Next Champion: Sasha Banks

Explanation: They keep putting this on the back burner for 2+ years. I just want this to end.

current WWE Intercontinental champion title holder

WWE INTERCONTINENTAL CHAMPIONSHIP

Current Intercontinental Champion: Sami Zayn

Prediction for Next Champion: Big E

Explanation: Part of me wants to say Dominik Mysterio, but I'll go with Big E as the most logical choice right now. Kevin Owens is a strooooooooooooooooooooooong contender for this spot, though, and I might have to change this Big E prediction.

current WWE United States champion title holder

WWE UNITED STATES CHAMPIONSHIP

Current United States Champion: Bobby Lashley

Prediction for Next Champion: Keith Lee

Explanation: There's a chance Matt Riddle or Jeff Hardy wins it, but I'm leaning toward Lee and I hope he takes the belt instead.

current WWE Raw Tag Team champion title holder

RAW TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP

Current Raw Tag Team Champions: The New Day

Prediction for Next Champions: The Hurt Business

Explanation: It's either them, or RETRIBUTION. I know which group I like better and will root for.

current WWE SmackDown Tag Team champions title holder

SMACKDOWN TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP

Current SmackDown Tag Team Champions: The Street Profits

Prediction for Next Champions: The Forgotten Sons

Explanation: I don't know. I don't think WWE does, either. SmackDown doesn't have a lot of options. The Forgotten Sons aren't even on the brand, officially, but I'll toss their name out there for the hell of it.

current WWE Women's Tag Team champion title holder

WWE WOMEN'S TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP

Current Women's Tag Team Champions: Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler

Prediction for Next Champions: I don't think WWE knows

Explanation: I doubt WWE had it in mind that Jax and Baszler would be the ones to take out Banks and Bayley when they gave The Golden Role Models the titles. Just the same, I don't think there are any plans in mind to have any team win the belts next. I could see a scenario where Jessamyn Duke and Marina Shafir win after Baszler turns on Jax, though.

current WWE 24/7 champion title holder

WWE 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. The general rule of thumb, though, is that if it's not currently on R-Truth, he'll probably be the next champion or the one after that.

current WWE NXT champion title holder

NXT CHAMPIONSHIP

Current NXT Champion: Finn Balor

Prediction for Next Champions: Karrion Kross

Explanation: I'd assume the current game plan is to have Balor hold the title until Karrion Kross is back from injury and can win it and resume the title reign he never had a chance to run with.

current WWE NXT Women's champion title holder

NXT WOMEN'S CHAMPIONSHIP

Current NXT Women's Champion: Io Shirai

Prediction for Next Champion: Ember Moon or Toni Storm

Explanation: I'd lean more toward Toni Storm than Ember Moon.

current WWE NXT Tag Team champion title holder

NXT TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP

Current NXT Tag Team Champions: Brit-Am Brawlers

Prediction for Next Champions: The Undisputed ERA

Explanation: Wow. I didn't think Danny Burch and Oney Lorcan would turn heel and win these belts. Good for them. There goes my Legado del Fantasma pick. Now, we're in the need for a babyface team to beat Lorcan and Burch. That could be The Undisputed ERA and it wouldn't be shocking, so I'll go with them. However, maybe this is the direction Drake Maverick and Killian Dain go down.

current WWE North American champion title holder

NXT NORTH AMERICAN CHAMPIONSHIP

Current North American Champion: Damian Priest

Prediction for Next Champion: Austin Theory

Explanation: I had thought Ridge Holland stood a strong chance to win this until he got injured. Cameron Grimes is a possibility. Austin Theory is my guy for right now, but there are a lot of avenues this could go. Johnny Gargano, Tommaso Ciampa, Velveteen Dream, Roderick Strong....

current WWE NXT Cruiserweight champion title holder

NXT CRUISERWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP

Current Cruiserweight Champion: Jordan Devlin / Santos Escobar (interim)

Prediction for Next Champion: Kushida

Explanation: Is Fantasma the champion or the interim champion? What's up with Devlin? I don't know how they'll address that, but they could just keep it on Escobar and have him drop it to someone like Kushida down the line.

current WWE NXT United Kingdom champion title holder

NXT UNITED KINGDOM CHAMPIONSHIP

Current United Kingdom Champion: WALTER

Prediction for Next Champion: Ilja Dragunov

Explanation: I don't entirely have faith Dragunov will be the one to dethrone WALTER, but he's the best bet at the moment, at least.

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 is the only worthy challenger at the moment, but we don't even know when that will happen.

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: Moustache Mountain

Explanation: It's not going to be The Hunt, that's for sure.
