Universal Title.

Recent poll could indicate WWE's plans for World Championships in 2018

WWE's main championship pictures are always under scrutiny since it's considered the top spot in the entire company. In recent years, however, there has been a larger influence of part-timers and superstars from the past being involved in the WWE title picture and the Universal title picture.

Over the past five years, part-timers like Goldberg, The Rock, John Cena, Batista, Triple H, and Brock Lesnar have been involved in either the WWE title picture or the Universal title picture, with The Beast currently being the Universal Champion.

This looks set to continue in the future, as Lesnar is expected to be Universal Champion entering WrestleMania 34, while Cena is set to become a 17-time world champion at some point. A recent WWE poll, however, has suggested more part-timers than just these two could be involved in their main title pictures.

WWE.com recently uploaded a poll onto their website asking fans which veteran superstars they believe are most likely to win a world title in 2018. The options which fans had the choice from were Triple H, Kurt Angle, Goldberg or The Undertaker.

As of writing, Angle is currently leading the poll with 35% of the vote. The Game is second with 31%, The Phenom is third with 23%, while Goldberg is fourth with only 12% of the vote.

The reason why this poll is so interesting is that sometimes WWE posts their future booking ideas out in polls in order to see what the fan reaction to it would be. If they were to follow this, it would likely mean they're giving The Olympic Hero a title shot at some point this year.

Goldberg and Undertaker appear to be on their way out of wrestling, so neither of them should really be given a world title reign. Triple H and Angle still wrestle occasionally, so we could see WWE insert them into one of their main championship pictures in the future.


Yet, in truth, while it would be great to see all of these wrestling legends step in the ring again for one more match, it's time that more full-time superstars were given opportunities to lead the company through the main title picture, and for part-timers not to be a part of it.

WWE fans would be happy with Lesnar walking into WrestleMania as Universal Champion, and with Cena winning his 17th world title at some point in the year, but no more part-timers need to be having a world title reign. It's time to build up the superstars of today, rather than the superstars of the past.
