Ahead of the 22/23 UEFA Champions League season beginning on 6 September, numerous WWE Superstars have predicted this year’s winners with a somewhat clear favourite!
The 31st UEFA Champions League has just concluded its qualifying stages ahead of the league officially kicking off on Tuesday, 6 September. Football pundits are eager to see who comes out as the victors on 10 June, with several WWE Superstars joining the conversation on TikTok.
A handful of stars picked Real Madrid as the eventual winners, which would mark their record fifteenth league victory. Omos, MVP, and current WWE Intercontinental Champion Gunther all picked ‘La Casa Blanca’ to break their own record, with MVP insistent that he wouldn’t ever pick Liverpool or Manchester City to win the tournament.
Both Drew McIntyre and WWE announcer Kevin Patrick, meanwhile, are keen to see Man City leave with the trophy. The win would mark Manchester City’s first ever win in the league’s 67-year history.
NXT Superstar Giovanni Vinci – the former Fabian Aichner – wants to see Inter Milan pick up the trophy for the first time since the 09/10 season. As for Los Lotharios’ Humberto, he’s keen to see Paris Saint-Germain pick up their first victory. Finally, Sheamus, an avid football fanatic, took offence to the question when he answered ‘The Mighty Reds’, Liverpool.
The 22/23 Champions League season will officially begin on Tuesday, 6 September. Beginning the league will be the simultaneous matches of Dinamo Zagreb vs. Chelsea, and Dortmund vs. Copenhagen.
