The first category was for the WWE Championship, currently held by Drew McIntyre. The potential challengers on the list  were “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt, Braun Strowman, Jeff Hardy, and AJ Styles.

It’s an impressive combination of potential challengers. The former two have been in a storyline together like the latter two. However, Strowman is the most obvious choice considering he is one of the biggest names on Raw at the moment.

It’s amusing that WWE put “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt within the mix as he is a part of a storyline involving Kevin Owens. If the company shifts him to one involving the Championship title, Owens will need to step aside.

WWE reveals challengers for other titles

The next category was the United States Championship. As per WWE, the challengers were Matt Riddle, Keith Lee, Elias, and Sheamus. The current United States Champion is Bobby Lashley.

All of them make a good case for themselves. Elias just made a stunning comeback on the latest episode of Monday Night Raw. He might be interested in entering a storyline with the Man Mountain.

The third category advertised by WWE was the WWE Raw Women’s Championship. The challengers for the same were Naomi, Alexa Bliss, Lacey Evans, and Nikki Cross.

While all of them are excellent choices, Alexa Bliss is an unexpected prediction who is engrossed in a peculiar relationship with Bray Wyatt. The current Champion, Asuka, will welcome a challenge from any one of them.
