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: Bobby Lashley

Prediction for Next Champion: Drew McIntyre

Explanation: WrestleMania. Yawn. They couldn't have come up with something better than this hot potato 11th hour stuff? They had a full year to plan stuff out.

current WWE Universal champion title holder

WWE UNIVERSAL CHAMPIONSHIP

Current Universal Champion: Roman Reigns

Prediction for Next Champion: Edge

Explanation: I don't buy 100% into Edge winning the title. However, it wouldn't be out of the realm of possibility for him to dethrone Reigns, just to drop the title back a month later.

current WWE Raw Women's champion title holder

RAW WOMEN'S CHAMPIONSHIP

Current Raw Women's Champion: Asuka

Prediction for Next Champion: Rhea Ripley

Explanation: WrestleMania.

current WWE SmackDown Women's champion title holder

SMACKDOWN WOMEN'S CHAMPIONSHIP

Current SmackDown Women's Champion: Sasha Banks

Prediction for Next Champion: Bianca Belair

Explanation: If Belair doesn't win the title, who else will? Bayley again? How pointless would that be?

current WWE Intercontinental champion title holder

WWE INTERCONTINENTAL CHAMPIONSHIP

Current Intercontinental Champion: Big E

Prediction for Next Champion: Apollo Crews

Explanation: I'm not sold on Crews winning the belt at WrestleMania 37, but after six other attempts, if he doesn't win it then, he's never winning it from Big E. I don't think WWE has a better plan other than that, either. Maybe it's not a bet I'd take, but it's the smartest bet you can make at the moment.

current WWE United States champion title holder

WWE UNITED STATES CHAMPIONSHIP

Current United States Champion: Matt Riddle

Prediction for Next Champion: Keith Lee

Explanation: I had thought WrestleMania, but Lee's injury has put that on hold. If not, maybe Sheamus wins it from Riddle and drops it to Lee.

current WWE Raw Tag Team champion title holder

RAW TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP

Current Raw Tag Team Champions: The New Day

Prediction for Next Champions: AJ Styles and Omos

Explanation: I didn't see this one coming, but as soon as AJ Styles and Omos came out to talk about this idea, I can't help but to go in that direction for my prediction. It's a shame The Hurt Business was just pushed aside like that.

current WWE SmackDown Tag Team champions title holder

SMACKDOWN TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP

Current SmackDown Tag Team Champions: Dolph Ziggler and Robert Roode

Prediction for Next Champions: Dominik Mysterio and Rey Mysterio

Explanation: Dominik and Rey Mysterio, The Street Profits and Alpha Academy lost a Fatal 4-Way. Theoretically, none of them deserve to be the next champions. But unless The Usos just win it next, despite that being heel/heel, who else is there? I guess I'll just keep my prediction about The Mysterios for now.

current WWE 
  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: The Riott Squad

Explanation: There really isn't any solid choice, so just give it to the proper team that hasn't won the title yet.

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: Karrion Kross

Prediction for Next Champions: No idea.

Explanation: I have no clue, largely in part because I think WWE doesn't have anything in mind. Maybe this is going to come back around to Kyle O'Reilly? Maybe there will be a different signing in the future we don't have on the roster now who will beat Kross?

current WWE NXT Women's champion title holder

NXT WOMEN'S CHAMPIONSHIP

Current NXT Women's Champion: Raquel Gonzalez

Prediction for Next Champion: Shotzi Blackheart

Explanation: You might have to come back and check this out over time, but I'll be sticking to my original thoughts of "Shotzi Blackheart wins the belt after whoever dethrones Io Shirai". I had thought it would be Toni Storm, rather than Raquel Gonzalez, so I was wrong about that, but until something else happens to move this in a different direction, I'll stick with Shotzi as my pick.

current WWE North American champion title holder

NXT NORTH AMERICAN CHAMPIONSHIP

Current North American Champion: Johnny Gargano

Prediction for Next Champion: TBD

Explanation: Bronson Reed came up short at Stand & Deliver, so I'm left without a prediction for the moment. Stay tuned and come back another time soon and I'll have updated this with someone in mind.

current WWE NXT Tag Team champion title holder

NXT TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP

Current NXT Tag Team Champions: MSK

Prediction for Next Champions: Imperium

Explanation: MSK just won the titles and I don't know which team I'd go with for the next in line. I don't think WWE has any solid ideas in mind, considering it's just happened, but I'll come around to this with a prediction soon enough. If you want a total shot in the dark, I'd say Imperium is next.

current WWE NXT Tag Team champion title holder

NXT WOMEN'S TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP

Current NXT Tag Team Champions: Ember Moon and Shotzi Blackheart

Prediction for Next Champions: Tian Sha

Explanation: Well, The Way couldn't get the job done. There aren't any other teams to win this than Tian Sha, right? If it doesn't go to Mei Ying and Xia Li, who else would win it?

current WWE NXT Cruiserweight champion title holder

NXT CRUISERWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP

Current Cruiserweight Champion: Santos Escobar

Prediction for Next Champion: Kushida

Explanation: There could be a wide variety of potential new champions, but I'll stick with my prediction that I've had for months now in that Kushida is the next in line.

current WWE NXT United Kingdom champion title holder

NXT UNITED KINGDOM CHAMPIONSHIP

Current United Kingdom Champion: WALTER

Prediction for Next Champion: No idea.

Explanation: I legitimately have no clue whatsoever. Maybe if Harry Smith pops up on this particular roster, he can fit the bill. Other than that, I'm at a loss.

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: Aoife Valkyrie or Emilia McKenzie

Explanation: Kay Lee Ray has held the title forever and a day. I thought it would go to Piper Niven two times "for sure". Then, I thought it HAD to go to Meiko Satomura. Now that those have passed, I'm convinced WWE doesn't have a game plan or at least wants to wait until there are fans before having a title switch. Probably both. It's probably a case of "Well, she's had the title such a long time. Let's wait and it'll mean more when fans in attendance can pop for someone to beat her. We don't know when that will happen or who will beat her, but we'll just stall in the meantime and hope that when the time comes, we'll figure out something decent. And if we don't figure out a game plan down the road? Too bad. We'll just tell you it's long-term storytelling and ask that you'll forgive us and move on and forget about it."

current WWE NXT UK tag team champion title holder

NXT UNITED KINGDOM TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP

Current United Kingdom Tag Team Champions: Pretty Deadly

Prediction for Next Champions: Moustache Mountain

Explanation: It would be weird if they never held the titles, right?

current WWE NXT UK Heritage Cup champion title holder

NXT UNITED KINGDOM HERITAGE CUP

Current United Kingdom Heritage Cup Champion: A-Kid

Prediction for Next Champions: Noam Dar or Jordan Devlin

Explanation: If Jordan Devlin drops the Cruiserweight Championship, he could be the next in line for this as sort of a transitional thing. However, for right now, Dar seems like the most sound prediction.
