WWE Night of Champions predictions: New World Heavyweight Champion, Roman Reigns in action and more

There’s a lot at stake tonight, with the main event going to one of two matches realistically – with the most likely being the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Title bout.

Look to Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn to retain here, potentially with The Usos costing Roman Reigns and Solo Sikoa to dissolve The Bloodline and set up a bitter family feud for the summer months.

could also main event, and it’s one of several showstealers with The Visionary a safe bet to become the new World Heavyweight Champion.

Rhea Ripley to keep herself rolling while Asuka could end Bianca Belair’s lengthy run – but either way, WWE needs to sort out the mess of the Raw and SmackDown Titles being on the wrong show since the draft.

Brock Lesnar could get his win back over Cody Rhodes, and Trish Stratus should steal a win over Becky Lynch to keep their rivalry going.

On paper, GUNTHER v Mustafa Ali appears to be a foregone conclusion, but the Ring General could lose here to move onto bigger and better things, or his IC Title reign will continue. Either way, Ali’s stock could soar with a spirited performance.
