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: Kofi Kingston
Prediction for Next Champion: No idea.

Explanation: Randy Orton?

current WWE Universal champion title holder

WWE UNIVERSAL CHAMPIONSHIP

Current Universal Champion: Brock Lesnar
Prediction for Next Champion: Roman Reigns

Explanation: WrestleMania 36. Let's just do the same match for the 150th time and hope it works THIS time. Awful. I hate Brock Lesnar as champion.

current WWE Raw Women's champion title holder

RAW WOMEN'S CHAMPIONSHIP

Current Raw Women's Champion: Becky Lynch
Prediction for Next Champion: No idea.

Explanation: I legitimately have no guesses. Sasha Banks? Shayna Baszler? I don't feel confident in any answer.

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: Unless Sasha Banks goes to SmackDown somehow, I think Charlotte Flair is the top threat. She's always at least hovering, right?

current WWE Intercontinental champion title holder

INTERCONTINENTAL CHAMPIONSHIP

Current Intercontinental Champion: Shinsuke Nakamura
Prediction for Next Champion: Aleister Black

Explanation: Ali could win it. Kevin Owens could win it. Hell, even Randy Orton can win it. But I think Aleister Black stands the best chance right now.

current WWE United States champion title holder

UNITED STATES CHAMPIONSHIP

Current United States Champion: AJ Styles
Prediction for Next Champion: Rey Mysterio or Braun Strowman

Explanation: Either this leads to a Styles/Mysterio feud and Rey gets the belt back and this is just a convoluted pretzel of a title reign switch back and forth all over the place, or someone like Strowman wins the belt down the line because they don't have a universal champion to have him fight. Maybe The Miz has a shot, too, but I'll go with Mysterio or Strowman over The Miz.

current WWE Raw Tag Team champion title holder

RAW TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS

Current Raw Tag Team Champions: The Revival
Prediction for Next Champions: The Good Brothers

Explanation: Shot in the dark. I don't know. I think the Wild Card rule has thrown everything for a loop and they don't have a game plan.

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 doesn't have any clue what to do with these belts for the long term and even though AOP could win them or something, there probably isn't any actual game plan in mind.

current WWE Women's Tag Team champion title holder

WWE WOMEN'S TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS

Current Women's Tag Team Champions: The IIconics
Prediction for Next Champions: The Kabuki Warriors

Explanation: Hell of a run for The IIconics, right? They've had the titles and done nothing with them while WWE got distracted with the Wild Card Rule.

current WWE Cruiserweight champion title holder

CRUISERWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP

Current Cruiserweight Champion: Drew Gulak
Prediction for Next Champion: Chad Gable or Oney Lorcan

Explanation: There's a chance some new blood gets injected into this division, and if that's the case, I don't know who from NXT or the main roster will move around. However, Chad Gable wrestled on 205 Live, so they might want to put him in that position, and he'd be a great champion if that were the case. If not him, I have to think Oney Lorcan is probably the next best pick in line.

current WWE 24/7 champion title holder

24/7 CHAMPIONSHIP

Current Cruiserweight Champion: R-Truth
Prediction for Next Champion: (Drake Maverick?)

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: Matt Riddle

Explanation: There's always a chance Johnny Gargano wins this, or even Tommaso Ciampa (if he gets cleared to compete in time), but I think I'll be going with Matt Riddle as my next pick, as they have to give him some sort of belt somewhere down the line, right?

current WWE NXT Women's champion title holder

NXT WOMEN'S CHAMPIONSHIP

Current NXT Women's Champion: Shayna Baszler
Prediction for Next Champion: Candice LeRae

Explanation: Belair lost twice. Shirai had her shot and came up short, too. Meanwhile, LeRae is getting a push again, so maybe she's the next in line for something like Toronto or WarGames?

current WWE NXT Tag Team champion title holder

NXT TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS

Current NXT Tag Team Champions: The Street Profits
Prediction for Next Champions: The Undisputed ERA

Explanation: It's either The Undisputed ERA or The Forgotten Sons, and I just want to lean more toward the former until given a reason to believe otherwise.

current WWE North American champion title holder

NXT NORTH AMERICAN CHAMPIONSHIP

Current North American Champion: Velveteen Dream
Prediction for Next Champion: Roderick Strong

Explanation: Shot in the dark from a while back and I still haven't seen much to change my mind.

current WWE United Kingdom champion title holder

UNITED KINGDOM CHAMPIONSHIP

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

Explanation: I have no idea.

current WWE United Kingdom women's champion title holder

NXT UNITED KINGDOM WOMEN'S CHAMPIONSHIP

Current United Kingdom Women's Champion: Toni Storm
Prediction for Next Champion: Jazzy Gabert

Explanation: Toni Storm is too beloved to lose it to someone like Nina Samuels. She needs to lose it to someone physically bigger, similar to the Pete Dunne and WALTER situation.

current WWE NXT UK tag team champion title holder

NXT UNITED KINGDOM TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS

Current United Kingdom Tag Team Champions: Grizzled Young Veterans
Prediction for Next Champions: Moustache Mountain

Explanation: I'm expecting GYV to beat Amir Jordan and Kenny Williams, as well as Flash Morgan Webster and Mark Andrews, and The Hunt before making their way back around to Trent Seven and Tyler Bate, who they'll lose it to.
