Every WWE Champion Ever, Ranked by Number of Reigns (Photos)

·2-min read

Pro-wrestling championship belts change hands (or waists) like grapplers change ring gear these days, though it wasn’t always that way. The Miz (yes, the dude from MTV’s “The Real World”) is WWE Champion these days after cashing in his Money in the Bank contract on a beaten down Drew McIntyre at the 2021 “Elimination Chamber” pay-per-view. (After McIntyre survived the actual Elimination Chamber match to retain his title, a grueling endeavor in its own right, Bobby Lashley assaulted our then-champion, leaving his beaten-down body in a heap for Miz.)

Weeks before winning his second WWE Championship, TheWrap spoke with The Miz about his key role within Vince McMahon’s (who is also on this list, by the way) professional wrestling company. Read that interview here.

Scroll through our gallery to see every WWE Champion ever, ranked by their number(s) of title wins. Remember: this is a list of those who won the WWWF Championship, the WWF Championship or the WWE Championship. So don’t come after us, Universal Champions, et al.
