Who will win the WWE Universal Championship?

Updated on August 28, 2016

Last Monday, the WWE Universe watched as Finn Balor was forced to relinquish the championship due to a shoulder injury.

With the newly created championship now vacant, Mick Foley and Stephanie McMahon set up a tournament to determine the new contenders.

With their spots secured, you have two former champs pitted against two guys looking to add the big championship to their resume.

These four names are the biggest in the WWE and anyone could potentially walk out as champion.


Seth Rollins

It’s no doubt that Seth Rollins is red hot at the momen.

Since returning from a knee injury in May, Rollins has been on a quest to reclaim the championship.

He briefly held the WWE championship for two minutes at MITB, before losing to his former Shield brother, Dean Ambrose. Rollins would once again lose his shot at the gold at the Battleground PPV.

Rollins was then awarded a shot at the new WWE Universal championship by fighting against Finn Balor at SummerSlam.

Even though, Rollins lost in the SummerSlam bout, he has a shot at winning the championship since Balor had to vacate the title.

After suffering several PPV losses, could Monday night see the turnaround of Rollins' luck?

Roman Reigns

Following his suspension in June, rumors circulated that Roman Reigns was getting depushed. We saw him lose the triple threat against his Shield brothers at Battleground. Then the following night on RAW, he lost out to Finn Balor for the #1 contender spot for the new belt.

After his lost to Balor, Reigns entered a feud with Rusev for the United States championship. It looked like the feud between the two men would continue, but if last Monday was any indication, it appears that feud is over.

Reigns once again finds him in the main even spotlight as fights to become a 4-time champion in less than a year.

It seems like the rumors of Reigns getting depushed aren’t true. Since WWE is set on making Reigns the new face of their company, odds are good that Reigns could walk out of RAW as champion.


Kevin Owens

Despite being a heel, Kevin Owens is a fan favorite in the WWE Universe. His awesome promos and ring work has made him one of the best wrestlers in the company.

Owens definitely deserves a push and he’s shown he’s more than ready for a championship run. He’s long overdue and Monday is his best chance of claiming the gold.

If Owens were to win on Monday, expect a huge pop as he hoists the championship above his head.


Big Cass

The seven-footer and his tag partner Enzo made their long-awaited debut the night after Wrestlemania. With Big Cass’ strength and Enzo’s unique personality and mic skills, the two have become favorites with the crowd.

When Enzo was out with a concussion, Big Cass showed he can survive on his own. The WWE is reportedly high on Big Cass and see him as becoming a main eventer in the future.

With his tall stature, Big Cass fits the mold that many see for top WWE SuperStars.

If Big Cass by some change wins the Universal championship on Monday, that leaves a lot of questions.

Is the WWE Universe ready to have him as their champion? What happens to Enzo if Big Cass wins the championship?


I’m going to eliminate Big Cass first. I feel that it’s too soon for him to win a big title such as the WWE Universal championship. I’d like to see him and Enzo as a tag team for a bit longer, and maybe win the tag team titles.

As much as I would love to see Owens in the championship, I feel the WWE isn’t going to put the belt on him. I think they’ll wait a while before they have Owens become champion.

In the end, I think the winner will come down to either Rollins or Reigns. WWE wants to pick up where the feud left off, and having the two men fight for the championship is the way to do it.

For the Fatal Four Way, I see Rollins winning by pinning Reigns, then setting up the next round of their feud.

Who will win the WWE Universal championship?
