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

Pro-wrestling championship belts change hands like grapplers change ring gear these days, though it wasn’t always that way. Big E is the current WWE Champion after cashing in his “Money in the Bank” contract on “Raw,” ripping the belt off Bobby Lashley’s impossibly small waist (given the size of the rest of his upper body).

This is Big E’s first-ever stint as WWE Champion, though he’s had plenty of other titles in WWE — mostly as part of tag-team faction The New Day.

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.

Fun fact: Even WWE Chairman Vince McMahon makes this list. The number of WWWF, WWF and WWE Superstars he ties with will either impress or infuriate — or both — depending on what type of professional wrestling fan you are.
