The list includes the number of times the wrestler has held the title, the date and location of the win, and a description of the winning bout. The following is correct as of July 26, 2016.

Current championships[change | change source]

At the top of WWE's championship hierarchy is the WWE Championship. The current champion is Dean Ambrose, who is in his first reign. He won the title by defeating Seth Rollins at Money in the Bank 2016 after cashing in his Money in the Bank contract.

There are two secondary titles in WWE, the Intercontinental Championship and the United States Championship. The Intercontinental Championship is currently held by The Miz, who is in his fifth reign. He won the title by defeating Zack Ryder on the April 4, 2016, edition of Raw. The United States Championship is currently held by Rusev, who is in his second reign. He won it by defeating Kalisto on May 22, 2016, at Extreme Rules.

The WWE Tag Team Championship is held by The New Day (Big E, Kofi Kingston, and Xavier Woods), who are in second reign as a team (record-tying fourth for Kingston and second for Woods and Big E individually). They won the championships after Big E and Kingston defeated Los Matadores (Diego and Fernando), The Lucha Dragons (Kalisto and Sin Cara), and previous champions The Prime Time Players (Titus O'Neil and Darren Young) in a Fatal 4-Way tag team match at SummerSlam, with Woods also defending via the Freebird Rule.

A wrestler who has held all four of these titles is recognized to have won the WWE Grand Slam.[1]

There is one championship available for female wrestlers, the WWE Women's Championship. The current champion is Sasha Banks, who is in her first reign.
