Sami Zayn (c) vs. Kevin Owens [Intercontinental Championship]
On the main roster, Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens battled twice on PPV. Kevin Owens won at WWE Payback 2016 and Sami Zayn won at WWE Battleground 2016. This means that they are 1-1, and there’s unfinished business. Since both of those matches were non-title matches, everything would come full circle with them ending their trilogy in a championship match at WrestleMania 37.
With Zayn and Kevin Owens on the same brand again, they are bound to meet in the ring again. Whether as a tag team or as rivals, they will work some magic. However, Zayn is a heel and KO is a face. Unless someone turns, they will very likely be rivals at some point. While KO would be a fitting ultimate opponent, Zayn should hold the championship for at least a year.
Prediction: Sami Zayn
Damian Priest (c) vs. Tomasso Ciampa [NXT North American Championship]
The only title eluding Ciampa’s career is the NXT North American Championship. After Damian Priest runs through the entire NXT mid-card division, he will eventually see his fate when he battles a main eventer in Ciampa. It looks like Ciampa is not getting called up anytime soon, so he might as well accomplish something in NXT that he has never accomplished.
The NXT North American Championship could really use someone like Ciampa, who would produce marquee matches with the mid-card superstars. Considering how long he has been in NXT, Ciampa would be excellent at pursuing a new role as a veteran who can elevate the next generation. As Cody did in AEW with the TNT title, Ciampa can do the same with this title.
Prediction: Tomasso Ciampa
Bobby Lashley (c) vs. Keith Lee [United States Championship]
Bobby Lashley is dominating the red brand with the United States Championship around his waist with special thanks to The Hurt Business, who is the greatest faction in the WWE to date. Hurt Business has been promising to become Gold Business for quite a while now. Hopefully, that comes true by ‘Mania season. Nonetheless, the ultimate opponent for Lashley would be Keith Lee.
Although it would be more suitable for Lee to be in the main event scene like he was in NXT, he still needs to get the main roster fans invested in his character. He can help do that by winning the United States Championship first and performing in open challenges to showcase his abilities and prowess. Doing this will help build himself up for a WWE Championship opportunity in the future.
Prediction: Keith Lee
