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: Randy Orton or Lars Sullivan...or Brock Lesnar

Explanation: One or the other, and they drop it to Roman Reigns. Or, they just give this to Lesnar.

current WWE Universal champion title holder

WWE UNIVERSAL CHAMPIONSHIP

Current Universal Champion: Seth Rollins
Prediction for Next Champion: Drew McIntyre...or Brock Lesnar

Explanation: McIntyre seems like the most logical guess right now, although it may be too obvious. Or, they just give this to Lesnar.

current WWE Raw Women's champion title holder

RAW WOMEN'S CHAMPIONSHIP

Current Raw Women's Champion: Becky Lynch
Prediction for Next Champion: Lacey Evans

Explanation: Logically, Lacey Evans is the one and only pick to go with, but I don't think she is guaranteed to win the title. In fact, I can see Lynch keeping it until later this year and dropping it to Shayna Baszler, maybe.

current WWE SmackDown Women's champion title holder

SMACKDOWN WOMEN'S CHAMPIONSHIP

Current SmackDown Women's Champion: Bayley
Prediction for Next Champion: Mandy Rose

Explanation: Unless Sasha Banks goes to SmackDown somehow, I think Mandy Rose is the top threat.

current WWE Intercontinental champion title holder

INTERCONTINENTAL CHAMPIONSHIP

Current Intercontinental Champion: Finn Balor
Prediction for Next Champion: Elias, Lars Sullivan or Buddy Murphy...or Andrade

Explanation: Elias strikes me as the most logical. Lars Sullivan is a safe bet in the sense that if they don't want him to be fighting for the world title yet, this will be his stepping stone. Long shot goes to Buddy Murphy, but it all depends on their faith in him. Now that Andrade is back on SmackDown, though, it could very well be him.

current WWE United States champion title holder

UNITED STATES CHAMPIONSHIP

Current United States Champion: Rey Mysterio
Prediction for Next Champion: Cesaro

Explanation: It'll be a heel, for sure. We know that, even though it isn't a crazy prediction. I don't know why I'm thinking Cesaro instead of Samoa Joe, but yeah...shot in the dark, I guess. It could VERY easily be Samoa Joe, Bobby Lashley, Baron Corbin, Robert Roode, or Sami Zayn, though.

current WWE Raw Tag Team champion title holder

RAW TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS

Current Raw Tag Team Champions: Zack Ryder and Curt Hawkins
Prediction for Next Champions: The Viking Raiders

Explanation: Unless AOP is ready to go beforehand, The Viking Raiders seems to be the pet project in mind.

current WWE SmackDown Tag Team champions title holder

SMACKDOWN TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS

Current SmackDown Tag Team Champions: Daniel Bryan and Rowan
Prediction for Next Champions: WWE doesn't know

Explanation: It's been my firm prediction that WWE had no idea what to do with this division. Not only has the Superstar Shake-up been an indication of that, but the injury to The Hardy Boyz has made things even more difficult. I think it's clear they have no plan at all and they're not going to think of a direction until at least June.

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: Asuka and Kairi Sane

Explanation: It's very possible The IIconics have a transitional reign.

current WWE Cruiserweight champion title holder

CRUISERWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP

Current Cruiserweight Champion: Tony Nese
Prediction for Next Champion: Drew Gulak

Explanation: Once Nese is fed Ariya Daivari and Mike Kanellis, he'll lose it to Gulak. There's not only a friendship connection between Nese and Gulak, he's also a heel who is long overdue to be champion and if Nese remains a babyface, Gulak could be the best possible person to dethrone him.

24/7 CHAMPIONSHIP

Current Cruiserweight 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.

current WWE NXT champion title holder

NXT CHAMPIONSHIP

Current NXT Champion: Johnny Gargano
Prediction for Next Champions: Dominik Dijakovic or Tommaso Ciampa

Explanation: I would be remiss if I didn't assume Ciampa wasn't the go-to answer, but I think there's a strong chance Dijakovic is the next champion if he's able to return from injury in enough time to do this, as there's nothing saying Gargano has to lose the title in 2019.

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 seems to be better off in the Sky Pirates tag team with Sane. Meanwhile, LeRae is getting a push again, so maybe she's the next in line for something like San Jose?

current WWE NXT Tag Team champion title holder

NXT TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS

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

Explanation: It's either The Undisputed ERA, The Street Profits, The Forgotten Sons or Oney Lorcan and Danny Burch. One of those teams will win the Fatal 4-Way at TakeOver.

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.

current WWE United Kingdom champion title holder

UNITED KINGDOM CHAMPIONSHIP

Current United Kingdom Champion: WALTER
Prediction for Next Champion: Dave Mastiff

Explanation: I have no idea, so I'll go with the next largest guy on the roster as the biggest threat until something else gets established as a possible direction.

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.
