With the brand split coming up, the WWE fans are collectively wondering about the possibility of WWE bringing in a second main event championship. The rumors suggest that WWE is going to have a Raw Championship and a SmackDown championship after the brand split.

While it is not clear which all superstars will be falling into each of the brands, it would be easy to speculate on who is the best candidate to carry the second championship.

This is because, the likes of Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins, and Dean Ambrose are currently involved in the WWE championship picture so any one of these three is likely to stay on Raw with this title. Which raises the question about SmackDown champion; here are five superstars we think should win the title if it is introduced.

Bray Wyatt

Deserves a title by now

Am I the only one that wonders why WWE has not allowed Bray Wyatt to win a singles title yet? Maybe I am, maybe I’m not, but one thing is for sure, Bray Wyatt has the caliber to hold a title. He has been around for a few years now and most of his feuds have been notable as well.

WWE can capitalize on the Wyatt family during the brand split and make them a force to reckon with in one of the brands.

If Bray holds the major championship of SmackDown and is protected by his family members at all corners, any match that he gets involved in will be an intriguing one as the challenger will be fighting against stacked odds.
