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: Big E

Prediction for Next Champion: ?????

Explanation: I have no idea at the moment!

current WWE Universal champion title holder

WWE UNIVERSAL CHAMPIONSHIP

Current Universal Champion: Roman Reigns

Prediction for Next Champion: No idea.

Explanation: I'm confident WWE has absolutely no plan right now for who the next in line may be. The idea is just "Reigns will retain until we think of something or we need to put the belt on someone else for some reason."

current WWE Raw Women's champion title holder

RAW WOMEN'S CHAMPIONSHIP

Current Raw Women's Champion: Charlotte Flair

Prediction for Next Champion: Bianca Belair

Explanation: Call me crazy, but I'm looking ahead to the idea that Bianca Belair could move to Raw in the draft and be the one to beat Flair. If not, maybe they eventually push Mia Yim into that kind of spot or Toni Storm?

current WWE SmackDown Women's champion title holder

SMACKDOWN WOMEN'S CHAMPIONSHIP

Current SmackDown Women's Champion: Becky Lynch

Prediction for Next Champion: No idea.

Explanation: Legitimately no idea.

current WWE Intercontinental champion title holder

WWE INTERCONTINENTAL CHAMPIONSHIP

Current Intercontinental Champion: Shinsuke Nakamura

Prediction for Next Champion: A Raw Superstar

Explanation: I was surprised about Nakamura's win over Apollo Crews. My first impression immediately after that is to say "Nakamura will drop it to someone who may be on Raw or NXT right now, but will move over to SmackDown during the 2021 WWE Draft." Someone like Elias after he's repackaged? But maybe it goes to someone like Seth Rollins to put a spotlight on that belt.

current WWE United States champion title holder

WWE UNITED STATES CHAMPIONSHIP

Current United States Champion: Damian Priest

Prediction for Next Champion: Karrion Kross

Explanation: If not Kross, maybe someone like AJ Styles gets the belt just to be a big name in that mix, but I'm leaning toward The Tollman.

current WWE Raw Tag Team champion title holder

RAW TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP

Current Raw Tag Team Champions: RK-Bro

Prediction for Next Champions: Two people who aren't in a team yet

Explanation: I don't think an established team at the time RK-Bro won the titles will be next in line (a la Mace and T-Bar, Mansoor and Mustafa Ali, Viking Raiders, New Day, AJ Styles and Omos, Lucha House Party or Veer and Shanky). Instead, I think it'll either be a SmackDown team or, more than likely, a new team that is forged in the meantime. I'm leaning toward the latter because WWE tends to like doing that, particularly on Raw. Maybe even Apollo Crews and Commander Azeez win it or something, if they move over to Raw in the draft.

current WWE SmackDown Tag Team champions title holder

SMACKDOWN TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP

Current SmackDown Tag Team Champions: The Usos

Prediction for Next Champions: The Street Profits

Explanation: The Street Profits would make sense, but we're not going to know even what teams are available until after the draft, so don't put a lot of stock in that.

current WWE 
  Team champion title holder

WWE WOMEN'S TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP

Current Women's Tag Team Champions: Nikki A.S.H. and Rhea Ripley

Prediction for Next Champions: Nox and Shotzi

Explanation: Nox and Shotzi have twice won No. 1 contender matches, but Ripley and A.S.H. got the titles before they had a chance to win them. That doesn't give me a lot of confidence Nox and Shotzi will win the belts next by any means, but I'm left not having any other ideas in mind of who could contend for them. Maybe down the line, we get BayMella back?

current WWE 24/7 champion title holder

WWE 24/7 CHAMPIONSHIP

Current 24/7 Champion: Reginald Thomas

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. If not R-Truth, it's usually either Akira Tozawa or Drew Gulak.

current WWE NXT champion title holder

NXT CHAMPIONSHIP

Current NXT Champion: Tommaso Ciampa

Prediction for Next Champions: Pete Dunne

Explanation: A bit ago, I didn't think Samoa Joe would be back in the ring beating Karrion Kross. Then, I didn't think Joe would have to vacate the title. Then, I thought Kyle O'Reilly would win the Fatal 4-Way and he was taken out. Then, I thought that meant Pete Dunne was the easy pick to win the title, but Ciampa won it. Clearly, I have no idea!

current WWE NXT Women's champion title holder

NXT WOMEN'S CHAMPIONSHIP

Current NXT Women's Champion: Raquel Gonzalez

Prediction for Next Champion: Franky Monet

Explanation: Monet is a big enough name with enough history behind her that it would make sense if she won the title next.

current WWE North American champion title holder

NXT NORTH AMERICAN CHAMPIONSHIP

Current North American Champion: Isaiah "Swerve" Scott

Prediction for Next Champion: Josh Briggs

Explanation: Total shot in the dark.

current WWE NXT Tag Team champion title holder

NXT TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP

Current NXT Tag Team Champions: MSK

Prediction for Next Champions: Danny Burch and Oney Lorcan

Explanation: I had thought Imperium, but with Burch back in action, it's not crazy to think they give the titles back to The Brit-Am Brawlers.

current WWE NXT Tag Team champion title holder

NXT WOMEN'S TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP

Current NXT Tag Team Champions: Io Shirai and Zoey Stark

Prediction for Next Champions: Gigi Dolin and Jacy Jayne

Explanation: Well, my Tian Sha pick sure went out the window, didn't it? Now, it seems Dolin and Jayne, partnered with Mandy Rose, would make the most sense.

current WWE NXT Cruiserweight champion title holder

NXT CRUISERWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP

Current Cruiserweight Champion: Roderick Strong

Prediction for Next Champion: No idea

Explanation: Strong should stay champion for a considerable reign. It doesn't need to be a year or anything, but the longer he holds it, the better, I think. As it stands, I don't know if there's an obvious contender to be next in line.

current WWE NXT United Kingdom champion title holder

NXT UNITED KINGDOM CHAMPIONSHIP

Current United Kingdom Champion: Ilja Dragunov

Prediction for Next Champion: Teoman

Explanation: This is by no means a strong gut reaction. It's just a guess with little to no value to it.

current WWE United Kingdom women's champion title holder

NXT UNITED KINGDOM WOMEN'S CHAMPIONSHIP

Current United Kingdom Women's Champion: Meiko Satomura

Prediction for Next Champion: Aoife Valkyrie

Explanation: Finally, we've got someone other than Kay Lee Ray. After 649 days with the belt, I'm not expecting Satomura to have anywhere close to the same run. Valkyrie is being built up to an extent. McKenzie is definitely a priority. Maybe Piper Niven turns heel and wins it from Satomura, whenever Niven returns. Jinny is another option. But for now, I'll go with Valkyrie.

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? Watch it be Dave Mastiff and Jack Starz instead or something along those lines.

current WWE NXT UK Heritage Cup champion title holder

NXT UNITED KINGDOM HERITAGE CUP

Current United Kingdom Heritage Cup Champion: Tyler Bate

Prediction for Next Champions: Jordan Devlin

Explanation: If Noam Dar hadn't already had his spats with Tyler Bate, I'd assume he'd be next in line. However, since we haven't seen Jordan Devlin in a while, I'm thinking WWE comes back around to that and he wins this title to compensate for dropping the Cruiserweight Championship.
