Here are 7 stars that could be subsequent in line for a WWE Universal Championship:
Seth Rollins is now a WWE Intercontinental Champion yet he could join a WWE Universal pretension competition in a nearby future.

Rollins has had some impasse in a Reigns and Lesnar feud, he indeed became a WWE World Heavyweight Champion when he cashed in his Money in a Bank briefcase during WrestleMania 31. Rollins and Lesnar also faced any other during WWE Battleground (2015) yet that compare was interrupted by The Undertaker.

He after had another compare during a Greatest Royal Rumble and that finished in controversy.

The reports have also suggested that there is a probability that Lesnar competence dump a pretension there.
Braun Strowman has been widespread given withdrawal a Wyatt Family. He has degraded many of a register and has been in a pretension competition for utterly some time. Strowman’s prevalence has not led to many championships though, his usually pretension win is opposite Cesaro and Sheamus. That tab group pretension run fast came to an finish given he could not urge a titles with a child on his side. There is unequivocally zero else for Strowman to do yet to follow a WWE Universal Championship. Strowman has looked as widespread as Lesnar, so he would be a ideal champion if WWE motionless to go that route.
Finn Balor was a initial ever WWE Universal Champion yet that fast came to an finish when he had to empty a pretension due to a shoulder injury. He now binds a record for a shortest WWE Universal Championship power during one day. Balor returned one night after WrestleMania 33 yet he has not been means to get behind on track. Balor apropos a WWE Universal Champion would be engaging given we didn’t unequivocally get to see him as champion.

The Miz recently competent for a Money in a Bank compare and while there are many large names that will participate, he is one that could be a totally opposite champion if he wins. He is entrance off plain WWE Intercontinental Championship runs and it would be unequivocally engaging to see someone like him as a champion. The Miz is now on WWE SmackDown so a Money in a Bank briefcase could also meant a WWE Championship win in a future.
Samoa Joe has feuded with Brock Lesnar in a past and a Money in a Bank briefcase could be a start of something for him. Samoa Joe has never won a pretension in a categorical register yet he had lots of success in NXT. Joe was recently changed to a WWE SmackDown register yet a Money in a Bank briefcase does give a leader a eventuality to face a champion. A compare with AJ Styles for a WWE Championship wouldn’t be bad either.
