The WWE Championship is the oldest and the most prestigious title in World Wrestling Entertainment. Over the years, several wrestlers have tried to make a name for themselves by trying to obtain the Championship. It is a Heavyweight Championship and has been held by 50 different superstars.


AJ Styles is the current WWE Champion in his second reign. He is one of the finest WWE champions the world has witnessed in recent history. Wrestlers in SmackDown would try their level best to topple him and grab the title from his waist.


Here are 5 such potential future WWE Champions in WWE:


5. Andrade Cien Almas


Almas is the newest member of SmackDown roster. He is a former NXT Champion. Almas started competing at the age of 13 in Mexico. There is a lot of hype surrounding him. His in-ring skills and potential are enormous. Almas is currently managed by Zelina Vega. He is projected to become the next big thing in SmackDown.


Almas can defeat anyone and everyone at his will. His elevated hammerlock DDT is extremely painful and wrestlers generally cannot beat the referee's count post that. Players who have witnessed his wrath have failed to counter his moves. Audiences across the world would be eager to see what this man can put forth once he becomes the WWE Champion.


4. Rusev


Rusev is one of WWE's most loved superstar. People chant his anthem 'Rusev Day' religiously. He, along with Aiden English and Lana is the most entertaining trio in the WWE today. However, he can be highly aggressive and merciless as well.


Rusev is a former two time United States Champion in WWE. He is one of the few wrestlers in the history of WWE to compete and defeat John Cena in a match. Rusev has the ability to build outstanding promos and can sell arenas. He is not given proper Championship pursuits. If Rusev is booked properly and given his proper dues, he is bound to become the next WWE Champion in WWE.


3. Big Cass

Cass is a 7' monster and is one of the most violent superstars in WWE. He has taken out superstars like Enzo Amore, Big Show, Daniel Bryan and several others. Recently, he got drafted to SmackDown. He enjoyed a lot of success in the tag team division. Cass is doing an excellent job as a villain in SmackDown.

Big Cass has made his intentions clear, that he will settle for nothing less than the WWE Championship. His physique along with his innovative wrestling techniques sets him far apart from his fellow colleagues. Cash and Styles would be an epic clash and WWE Universe would love to see him snatch the title from AJ Styles.


2. Shinsuke Nakamura

Nakamura is a former two-time NXT Champion in WWE. He is also the winner of 2018 Royal Rumble match. Within a short span of time, he has headlined WrestleMania and did main-event several other PPV's. Nakamura's kicks are his assets and the recipient of his moves succumbs to defeat.


Nakamura and Styles are combatting for the WWE Championship. They both are scheduled to face one another for the WWE Championship at the Money in the Bank PPV. Nakamura can utilize several underhand tactics to defeat Styles and grab the WWE title.

  2. 11. Samoa Joe: 

Samoa Joe is a highly recognized person in the field of professional pro-wrestling. He has had a massive success prior to joining the WWE. In WWE's NXT, he is a two-time NXT Champion. His combat skills are outstanding and his flexibility is remarkable (being a heavyweight). Joe's Coquina clutch is the deadliest lock in the WWE currently.

Joe is a former World Heavyweight Champion. But in WWE, he is yet to capture any major title. He has undergone surgeries recently and seems to be in the best shape of his life currently. If WWE schedules a contest between him and Styles for the WWE title, it would be a cakewalk for him. They both have feuded previously and thus he can beat Styles at his convenience.
