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: Someone at WrestleMania, maybe.

Explanation: I really, really hope it isn't Brock Lesnar. I'd be cool with Randy Orton.

current WWE Universal champion title holder

WWE UNIVERSAL CHAMPIONSHIP

Current Universal Champion: Braun Strowman
Prediction for Next Champion: Roman Reigns or Bray Wyatt

Explanation: I'm assuming Reigns or Wyatt beats Strowman for the title at SummerSlam, if they're able to have that event.

current WWE Raw Women's champion title holder

RAW WOMEN'S CHAMPIONSHIP

Current Raw Women's Champion: Sasha Banks
Prediction for Next Champion: Asuka

Explanation: Just can't go with Shayna Baszler, right? It had to go to Sasha Banks to stretch her feud with Bayley out as long as humanly possible? Lame. I guess Asuka wins it back and this was just WWE's latest method of stalling...as if that hasn't happened for years at this point...

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: WrestleMania didn't happen. They keep putting this on the back burner for 2+ years. Maybe SummerSlam? I just want this to end.

current WWE Intercontinental champion title holder

WWE INTERCONTINENTAL CHAMPIONSHIP

Current Intercontinental Champion: AJ Styles
Prediction for Next Champion: Matt Riddle

Explanation: Granted, maybe they go in a different direction. Maybe Jeff Hardy beats Styles, or it goes to Daniel Bryan. But unless Riddle's personal life doesn't get in the way, he's my pick.

current WWE United States champion title holder

WWE UNITED STATES CHAMPIONSHIP

Current United States Champion: MVP? Apollo Crews?
Prediction for Next Champion: No idea

Explanation: They had MVP win by forfeit, but not necessarily be crowned the new champion. I used to think Apollo Crews would drop the belt to Bobby Lashley at SummerSlam. Now, I don't think WWE has any clue what they're doing.

current WWE Raw Tag Team champion title holder

RAW TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP

Current Raw Tag Team Champions: The Street Profits
Prediction for Next Champions: No idea

Explanation: I have literally no clue. This pandemic makes it impossible to guess who is even available, let alone who WWE might want to prioritize. Everything changes every day.

current WWE SmackDown Tag Team champions title holder

SMACKDOWN TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP

Current SmackDown Tag Team Champions: Cesaro and Shinsuke Nakamura
Prediction for Next Champions: The New Day or The Usos

Explanation: WWE probably has no plans and doesn't care. The New Day and The Usos (once viable) are always easy picks to win the titles, though. Heavy Machinery could win the belts if Otis stops being Mr. Money in the Bank, too.

current WWE Women's Tag Team champion title holder

WWE WOMEN'S TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP

Current Women's Tag Team Champions: Sasha Banks and Bayley
Prediction for Next Champions: Liv Morgan and Ruby Riott

Explanation: I can only see this duo taking the belts or a brand new pairing. It would be so bland if it just went back to Bliss Cross Applesauce or something.

current WWE 24/7 champion title holder

WWE 24/7 CHAMPIONSHIP

Current 24/7 Champion: Akira Tozawa
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: Keith Lee
Prediction for Next Champions: Karrion Kross

Explanation: He definitely seems to be the biggest threat poised to ascend the throne down the line.

current WWE NXT Women's champion title holder

NXT WOMEN'S CHAMPIONSHIP

Current NXT Women's Champion: Io Shirai
Prediction for Next Champion: Rhea Ripley

Explanation: I think it was a MAJOR mistake putting the title on Flair. I don't understand WWE's philosophy behind that at all, and I don't think it does anyone any favors for Ripley to have dropped the belt just to win it back. She shouldn't have lost it to begin with and she gets zero boost in credibility by beating someone who beat her, instead of just beating Flair at Mania. Then, they put the belt on Shirai. Is that not just typical for them to probably want to have Ripley beat her instead of Flair? Ridiculous.

current WWE NXT Tag Team champion title holder

NXT TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP

Current NXT Tag Team Champions: Imperium (Marcel Barthel and Fabian Aichner)
Prediction for Next Champions: No idea.

Explanation: There aren't a lot of babyface tag team options available at the moment to pick from. Indus Sher is heel, so are The Undisputed ERA and that's kind of it, since I don't expect The Brit-Am Bruisers to win and Breezango already lost their shot.

current WWE North American champion title holder

NXT NORTH AMERICAN CHAMPIONSHIP

Current North American Champion: Vacated
Prediction for Next Champion: Finn Balor or Dominik Dijakovic

Explanation: We don't know who all the options are to win this title. I'll be updating this once we have some more information, but for now, I'll toss out Balor and Dijakovic as options. I could see Damian Priest and some others having a major chance, too.

current WWE NXT Cruiserweight champion title holder

NXT CRUISERWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP

Current Cruiserweight Champion: Jordan Devlin / Santos Escobar (interim)
Prediction for Next Champion: Kushida or Isaiah "Swerve" Scott

Explanation: I'd love it if Drake Maverick won the title. However, I'm expecting that's not the case. 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 Pretty Deadly or The Hunt, that's for sure.
