WWE is a professional wrestling promotion based out of Stamford, Connecticut. Title reigns are either determined by professional wrestling matches or are awarded to a wrestler, as a result of the culmination of various scripted storylines. The WWE splits its main roster into two distinctive brands, Raw and SmackDown, as well as a developmental brand, NXT, with each having their own set of championships. There are five active singles championships for male wrestlers, two active championships for female wrestlers, and two active tag team championships between Raw and SmackDown, and one male, one female, and one tag team championship on NXT. There is also one championship representing the United Kingdom, which was created to be the centerpiece of an upcoming UK-based brand, but in the interim, it is being defended in NXT as well as on independent shows.


Between the three currently active brands, 16 wrestlers hold the championships (with one vacancy). 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 November 20, 2017.
