WWE RAW: 5 Superstars almost guaranteed to become Universal Champion in 2019
The Universal Championship was launched shortly after the most recent brand split. From the very beginning, it seemed like the title was cursed with Finn Balor having to relinquish his Championship shortly after he won it.

Very few men have held the title since then. I think 2019 will be the year when the WWE Universal Championship is booked like it always should have been.
And this will happen because Brock Lesnar is almost guaranteed to lose the Championship this year. If not at WrestleMania 35, then sometime later during the year. I have a feeling that the division will be a lot more competitive this year.
Here are 5 men who're likely to become Universal Champion at WrestleMania 35. Feel free to dispute my claim in the comments.
But I could personally imagine any of these men as the face of the red brand, going forward.
#5 Seth Rollins
Let's get the obvious one out of the way first. Seth Rollins is almost certain to defeat Brock Lesnar and bring the title back to WWE RAW on a near-weekly basis once again. He will be a Champion that the people believe in and based on his performance, a Champion that management believes in as well.
The only thing that makes me think that Seth Rollins may not get his moment at WrestleMania, is the fact that so many babyfaces are lined up to win the big prize at WrestleMania 35.
I mean you can't have Kofi Kingston and Becky Lynch and Seth Rollins win at the same show, can you? When was the last time, WWE gave the fans everything they wanted?
That said, it would be absolutely criminal if Rollins loses. I'm surprised that Rollins has never been Universal Champion thus far.
