WWE has a long history of superstars leaving monumental legacies. With their electrifying hallmarks, some reached the pinnacle. However, some carved their paths by winning the company’s most prestigious championships. The championship accomplishments of the superstars symbolize their phenomenal careers. Besides, the WWE wrestlers inscribe their names on the elite list of superstars by becoming the Grand Slam Champion in the company.
WWE superstars are entitled to the epithet “Grand Slam Champion” upon winning all the major championships in the company. For a male superstar, it includes the WWE Title/Universal Title, the United States Title, the Intercontinental Title, and the Tag Team Title. On the other hand, for female superstars, the NXT Title, Raw Title, SmackDown Title, and Tag Team Titles are considered.
WWE’s biggest event of the year is just a few days away. Some of the top stars of the company will be a part of the spectacular event in Los Angeles. WrestleMania is the night superstars conquest championships and create history. However, AJ Styles was the last male superstar to join the elite list of Grand Slam Champions. On the other hand, Charlotte Flair was the last female Grand Slam Champion in WWE.
With WrestleMania knocking at the door, many superstars are looking to inscribe their names on the prestigious list. Here is a list of three superstars who could become Grand Slam Champions at WrestleMania 39.

Sheamus is one of the most decorated superstars in WWE history. His accomplishments in this industry are the epitome of his excellence. Besides, the 45-year-old has been a true definition of resilience throughout his career. From winning the Royal Rumble to clinching the WWE Championship, the Celtic Warrior has done it all. However, one of the championships that has never been in his possession is the Intercontinental Title.
The Irish superstar will compete in the triple-threat match for the Intercontinental Title this year at WrestleMania. Therefore, it looks like, he finally has an opportunity unfolding in front of him to include his name in the elite list of superstars. Owing to this, the WWE Universe will witness the Celtic Warrior in an ultimate showdown with Drew McIntyre and Gunther.
The 45-year-old will become a Grand Slam Champion if he emerges triumphant in winning the Intercontinental Title. WrestleMania is the place where superstars solidify their legacies. As a result, there couldn’t be any better place for Sheamus to accentuate his iconic career by becoming a Grand Slam Champion.
2. Kevin Owens
Over the years, WWE has seen many superstars coming from NXT and rising to the top in the main roster. One such superstar is Kevin Owens. The 38-year-old has an exceptional career in WWE, winning multiple championships. Owens has won the NXT Championship and the WWE Universal Championship once in his career. In addition to that, he also won the Intercontinental title and the United States title in the main roster.
Without a doubt, KO has taken WWE by storm ever since his debut. However, one title that Kevin Owens never laid his hands on, is the Tag Team Championship. It looks like, the fans are just a few days away from witnessing him adding the title to his list. Owens and Zayn will clash with The Usos for WWE Tag Team Championships at WrestleMania 39.
Therefore, it looks like the former Universal Champion is just one step away from becoming the Grand Slam Champion in the company. It’s a feat that every WWE superstar dreams to achieve. Besides, WrestleMania is known for giving some of the most iconic moments to fans. Hence, it marks the perfect stage for Owens to create history, including his name on the elite list of superstars.
3. Rhea Ripley
Ever since her debut, Rhea Ripley has walked down the path of stardom. The 26-year-old has captivated the fans with her charisma and her presence. Synonymous with brutality, Ripley has dominated the women’s division and emerged as a prominent star. Moreover, The Eradicator has added multiple championships to her accolades in a very short span of time. She has been carving her own path to becoming one of the biggest stars in this industry.
However, Rhea Ripley will clash with Charlotte Flair for the SmackDown Women’s Championship at WrestleMania 39. The 26-year-old will become a Grand Slam Champion if she wins the title at The Grandest Stage of Them All. Therefore, it looks like, Ripley is just a step away to achieve this unprecedented feat. She will solidify her spot with the most decorated superstars in the women’s division.
The Eradicator has been on an unfathomable momentum heading into WrestleMania. She left no stone unturned to reach the pinnacle of the women’s division.
