World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) is a professional wrestling promotion based in 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 story lines. WWE assigns its employees onto two programs or divisions known as WWE Brands. The two brands and programs are Raw and SmackDown. Every month there is one pay-per-view produced by WWE. Currently there are four active singles championships, one active tag team championship, and a championship for the female wrestlers. Seven wrestlers currently hold the championships. 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 May 27, 2017.
At the top of WWE's championship hierarchy, the WWE Championship is currently held by The Miz while Kane is the current holder of the World Heavyweight Championship. The Miz is in his first reign as WWE Champion, having defeated the former champion Randy Orton after cashing in his Money in the Bank briefcase on the November 22 episode Raw. Kane, who is in his first reign as World Heavyweight Champion, won the championship on July 18, 2010, defeating the former champion Rey Mysterio after cashing in his Money in the Bank Briefcase.
The two secondary titles in WWE are the WWE Intercontinental Championship and the WWE United States Championship. The WWE Intercontinental Championship is currently held by Dolph Ziggler who is in his first reign after defeating Kofi Kingston on July 28, 2010, at the tapings of the August 6 edition of SmackDown. Daniel Bryan is the reigning WWE United States Champion, and is in his first reign after defeating The Miz at Night of Champions. Santino Marella and Vladimir Kozlov are the current holders of the WWE Tag Team Championship. They are in their first reign after defeating the former champions Heath Slater and Justin Gabriel of The Nexus at Raw in Louisville, Kentucky on December 6, 2010.
There is one championship that is challenged by WWE Divas. Natalya is presently in her first reign as WWE Divas Champion as a result of defeating Michelle McCool and Layla in a 2-on-1 handicap match at Survivor Series.
