WWE Predictions 2016: Will Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins, Kevin Owens Or Big Cass Become The Universal Champion?
August 25, 2016 - WWE
Less than 24 hours after winning a initial ever WWE Universal Championship compare during SummerSlam 2016, Finn Balor was forced to dump a pretension given of an damage that will keep him out for approximately 6 months. Now, WWE has to find a new luminary to reason a tip belt on “Monday Night Raw.”
After a array of subordinate matches on Monday, 4 wrestlers have a possibility to win a championship. Kevin Owens, Roman Reigns, Big Cass and Seth Rollins will contest in a Fatal-4-Way on a Aug. 29 book of “Raw,” and a leader will be awarded a now-vacant belt.
Who is a favorite to turn a subsequent WWE Universal Champion?
While there are 4 contenders, there are usually 3 picturesque choices. Big Cass has substantially no possibility to win a belt, and he’ll substantially finish adult being a wrestler that gets pinned to finish a match. He’s still partial of a tab group with Enzo Amore, and they’ll win a tab group titles before possibly one becomes a champion on their own.
Had this compare occurred 3 months ago, Reigns would be a heading claimant to win. WWE has pushed him harder than any other luminary in a final dual years, and he won a WWE World Championship 3 times between Nov of final year and WrestleMania 32 on Apr 3.
But for whatever reason—whether it be his new wellness process defilement or his inability to get over with many of a fans as a babyface—Reigns was pushed out of a WWE Championship picture. Losing a pretension to Rollins during Money in a Bank, he was pinned purify in dual true pay-per-view matches, as good as in a compare on a initial part of “Raw” after a WWE Draft.
WWE hasn’t accurately punished Reigns, deliberation he’s finished a final 3 episodes of “Raw” station tall. But it’s transparent that a association wasn’t looking for him to reason a tip pretension anytime soon, and Balor’s damage shouldn’t change that.
That brings it down to Owens and Rollins, both of whom would make a clever champion. They are a tip dual heels on “Raw,” and along with AJ Styles, substantially WWE’s best all-around performers as a summer comes to an end.
It wouldn’t be startling to see Owens win a belt. He kick John Cena in his initial ever compare on a roster, and WWE clearly has high hopes for him since he’s had a compare on each singular PPV given he debuted in May 2015.
Rollins, however, is a safest choice, and a one that WWE will expected gaunt towards when being forced to change their plans.
Since The Shield pennyless adult in Jun 2014, Rollins has consistently been WWE’s best performer. His WWE World Championship run was cut brief final year given of injuries, though he hasn’t mislaid a step given his return. When WWE finally decides to make him a babyface, he’ll fast turn a company’s many renouned wrestler.
Rollins mislaid a initial ever WWE Universal Championship match, though there’s a good possibility he’ll win a belt 8 days later.
