2017 is all set to go into the history books and the landscape of the WWE has changed entirely. Thanks to the popularity of NXT we have witnessed the debuts of talented professional wrestlers from all over the world. The ultimate dream of those wrestlers who sign with the company would be to hold either one of the prestigious championships.

The WWE and the Universal Championships are the ultimate prize for any aspiring professional wrestlers to achieve.

We saw five superstars hold the WWE Championship and three superstars hold the Universal Championship in 2017. Let's now see the five superstars who deserve to win the WWE or Universal Championship in 2018.


#5 Finn Balor - Universal Championship

Balor
Finn Balor was the first ever Universal Champion

No former champion who had held the Universal title received their one-on-one rematch for the championship and it all started with Finn Balor. If one speaks about the Universal Championship, the conversation begins in default with Balor.

Balor was the first person ever to hold the championship when he defeated Seth Rollins at Summerslam 2016. His reign was short-lived as he was forced to relinquish the title the very next night on Raw due to an injury he suffered during the match.

After being put on the sidelines, Balor returned to Raw after Wrestlemania 33 and one would've thought that he would be getting his one-on-one rematch for the championship. But the reality was far different as he is yet to receive any kind of opportunity to regain the title which he never lost.

It is unlikely that he would be receiving his rematch before Wrestlemania 34 as Kane and Braun Strowman are set to challenge for the title at the Royal Rumble next month.

One can hope for good things to come to Finn Balor in 2018 as we look forward to him to recapture the title and claim his rightful place in the top.
