Predicting the Next Challengers for the WWE Championship

At Backlash, Shinsuke Nakamura and AJ Styles will face off for the WWE Championship a third time. It’s clear that this feud is coming to an end. While it’s hard to say who’s going to win, it’ll be exciting regardless.

Once the dust settles between Styles and Nakamura, who will step up to the plate? Who will be on the prowl for the gold? Who will be the next challenger for the WWE Championship?

This is kind of cheating because Joe straight up said so himself that he was gunning whoever holds the WWE Championship. Once Joe finishes up his beef with Roman Reigns at Backlash, he can easily be inserted into the title picture, regardless of who wins.

If Nakamura wins, then it wouldn’t be too hard for Joe to be placed in a triple-threat match. That would be a big money match, no doubt about it. I feel those three could put on an absolute classic of a match.

If Styles wins, then WWE just books a simple face v. heel feud for the title. They don’t even have to acknowledge the history between the two men. It would be cool if they did, though.

A program between Joe and Styles would be worth watching. Joe is unmatched on the mic. He comes off as a complete and total badass. The good wrestling is just icing on the cake. Give Joe and Styles 15 minutes and you’ll have a classic on your hands.
