Top 10 Longest Reigning WWE Universal Champions

Top 10 Longest Reigning WWE Universal Champions

Views: 259693 | Updated On: | By Jitu Jangir

Here is the full list of the top 10 longest single-reigning WWE Universal champions.

The WWE Universal Championship is one of the two world titles for WWE's main roster, with Raw's WWE Championship being the other. It is currently held by Roman Reigns, who is in his second reign, which is the longest in the title's history. Reigns defends both titles together as the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship, but each title still maintains its individual lineage.

The championship was named after WWE's fans, known as the WWE Universe, and was established on July 25, 2016, as the top title for the Raw brand. This came after the reintroduction of the brand split and draft on July 19, 2016, which made the original world title, the WWE Championship, exclusive to SmackDown.

The first Universal Champion was Finn Bálor. Since its inception, the championship has headlined several pay-per-view and livestreaming events, including six consecutive SummerSlams from 2017 to 2022 and four WrestleManias (34, 37 Night 2, 38 Night 2, and 39 Night 2), which are two of WWE's "big five" pay-per-views and the latter being the company's flagship event. In 2019, following the events of Crown Jewel, the Universal and WWE Championships switched brands.
