The WWE Championship is one of the most prestigious championships in all of WWE. The current champion is Daniel Bryan, who defeated AJ Styles to win the Championship. However, ever since he won the title, he has received loads of flak from the WWE Universe.
It is not a secret, that he won't be holding the title for too long and would drop sometime in the near future. Therefore, the question lies in who will win and become the WWE Champion in 2019. Here are four potential candidates to win the WWE title next year.
4. Mustafa Ali
Mustafa Ali is definitely the first name that pops up on mind when we talk about the WWE Championship. He created a lot of buzz in the social media among thew WWE fans, when he pinned the current WWE Champion Daniel Bryan. Ali is an extremely talented wrestler, who can fly high and annihilate his opponent in no time.
Ali can give a tough competition to Bryan and can become an excellent WWE Champion. He is a fan favorite, and is one of the hot favorites to win the WWE Championship in the upcoming year. We hope this happens at the earliest.
3. Randy Orton
The former nine times world champion would be eyeing to win the WWE title once more in 2019. Orton, had an excellent run as the WWE Champion, and, is one of the best Champions of all time. If given a proper chance and booking, he can have one more good run in 2019 as the WWE Champion.
He can headline WrestleMania and main-event PPVs. Orton knows how to entertain the audience and is one of the best heels of all time. He is a veteran, whom everyone loves and fans are eagerly waiting him to hold the title. The last time he held the WWE title was way back in 2017, and, 2019 could be the year when history repeats.
Miz is a former WWE champion, and, is one of the most popular WWE superstars ever. He is a former Money in the Bank Winner, Tag Team Championship winner, United States Championship winner and other several records on his resume. Miz knows how to get under the skin of his opponents and the WWE fans love him for that.
He is one of the top contenders to win the title in 2019. It has been a few years, that he won any World Championships in the WWE. Him winning the WWE title, would glorify the title and make it more prestigious.
1. Samoa Joe
Samoa Joe is a former NXT Champion, who has competed and defeated wrestlers from across the globe. Joe has been eyeing the WWE Championship for a long time, and, 2019 could very well be the year he wins his maiden WWE Championship. Joe can squash anyone and everyone at his will, and, could be an outstanding WWE Champion.
The reputation that Joe has is enormous, and, WWE would love to crown him as their Champion. It is not matter of 'if', but rather 'when' Joe wins the title, he can certainly become one of the best Champions of all time.
