Since the launch of the WWWF then the WWF and now WWE, the world heavyweight title has been the top championship in the promotion.
It’s now known as the WWE Title and is currently held by Drew McIntyre. He beat Brock Lesnar to win it back at WrestleMania 36 earlier this year in the first WrestleMania to be held without fans due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
McIntyre made his latest title defense against Randy Orton in an Ambulance Match Sunday’s WWE Clash of Champions pay-per-view event in Orlando, Florida at the Amway Center.
This match saw various legends appear such as Ric Flair, Shawn Michaels, The Big Show, and Christian. This was done as a way for Orton to go down memory lane as he attacked all of the stars mentioned above throughout his journey to reclaim the top prize on Monday Night Raw.
WWE’s Stats & Info Twitter account sent out this interesting stat regarding WWE Title reigns:
“On average, Superstars who win the @WWE Championship at #WrestleMania hold onto the title for about 160 days. This is @DMcIntyreWWE’s 175th day as #WWE Champion. #WWEClash.”
