All-Time WWE Champion Rankings

Hey everyone thanks for checking out my All-Time WWE Champion Rankings. This list includes anyone to hold the WWE/F Championship, the Universal Championship, or the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. There have been over 60 men to hold the most prestigious title in the industry and we’ve seen some great Champions and we’ve seen some abysmal ones.

The point system was determined by the following.

  • Each Title win earned 30 points.
  • For every 100 days, the title was held earned 30 points
  • Wrestlemania Title win earned 30 points.

Sample: Bruno Sammartino: (2 * 30) = 60 for title wins, (4,040/100) = 4.040 * 30 = 1212.. 1212 + 60 = 1272.

The system isn’t flawless but I think it works. I was disappointed that Stone Cold Steve Austin and Mick Foley were so low on the list. I thought about adding a value-added to the title category but left it off as that’s purely subjective. If I were making this list without a formula I would have Austin in the top 5 and Foley in the top 25 due to the significance of their title wins and what they meant to wrestling at the time.

Updated 2/22/22: Roman Reigns moved up from 13 to 10 with his Universal Title reign continuing, passing CM Punk, Stone Cold, and The Undertaker in the process. I have Roman’s days held for combined titles up until the day of Wrestlemania. If Roman defeats Brock Lesnar at Wrestlemania 38 he will pass The Rock and move into 9th place all time. Also, moving up on the list was Bobby Lashley with his title win at the Royal Rumble. Bobby moved up from 36 to 31.

Updated 4/21/22: Roman Reigns passes The Rock to move up from 10th to 9th of all time with his win over Brock Lesnar at Wrestlemania. Reigns’ next step will be moving passed Edge and up to 8th.

Updated 07/30/22: Roman Reigns moves up from 9th to 8th place all-time with another 100 days as World Champion passing Edge. Roman will be getting 60 points for every 100 days as he holds two belts.

Updated 10/30/22: Roman Reigns adds another 60 points with another 100 days as Champion.

Updated 02/16/23: Roman Reigns adds another 60 points with another 100 days as Champion.

Updated 4/15/23: Roman Reigns adds another 60 points with his Wrestlemania 39 title defense over Cody Rhodes. With these 60 points Roman moves from 8th all-time to 6th all-time.

Updated 5/10/23: Roman Reigns total days held at 1,570+.

Updated 11/11/23: Roman Reigns total days held at 1750+. Seth Rollins is new World Champion for 180+ days.
