Sheamus with the WWE Championship.

The WWE Championship is a professional wrestling world heavyweight championship in World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE). It is one of the two world titles of the SmackDown brand, complementing the World Heavyweight Championship. It is the first world title established in WWE, having been introduced in 1963 as the World Wide Wrestling Federation (WWWF) World Heavyweight Championship. After ending its affiliation with the National Wrestling Alliance (NWA) governing body in 1983, the promotion was renamed World Wrestling Federation (WWF) with the title also renamed to reflect the acronym. In 2001, it was unified with the WCW Championship following the WWF's buyout of World Championship Wrestling (WCW) and became the Undisputed Championship.[1][2][3] In 2002, the WWF was renamed World Wrestling Entertainment and split its roster into two franchises, Raw and SmackDown, in a brand extension.[4][5] The title was then designated to the SmackDown brand, while WWE established an alternate world title known as the World Heavyweight Championship for the Raw brand. The WWE Undisputed Championship has been known as the WWE Championship since.[6]

WWE Championship reigns are determined by professional wrestling matches, in which competitors are involved in scripted rivalries. These narratives create feuds between the various competitors, which cast them as villains and heroes. Some reigns were held by champions using a ring name, while others used their real name. The first champion was Buddy Rogers, who won the championship in 1963. As of March 2010, the current champion is Batista, who defeated the former champion John Cena at Elimination Chamber. Overall, there have been 39 different official champions, with Triple H having the most reigns at eight.[7]
