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. Currently there are three active singles championships, one active tag team championship, and a championship for the female wrestlers. Six 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 April 19, 2014.

At the top of WWE's championship hierarchy, Daniel Bryan is in his third reign as WWE World Heavyweight Champion after he defeated previous champion Randy Orton and Batista in a Triple Threat match at WrestleMania XXX on April 6, 2014.

The two secondary titles in WWE are the WWE Intercontinental Championship and the WWE United States Championship. The current Intercontinental Champion is Big E, who is in his first reign after defeating Curtis Axel on the November 18, 2013 episode of Raw. Dean Ambrose is in his first reign as United States Champion, winning the title on May 19, 2013 at Extreme Rules, defeating Kofi Kingston.

The WWE Tag Team Championship is held by The Usos (Jimmy and Jey Uso), who defeated The New Age Outlaws on the March 3, 2014 edition of Raw. This is their first reign both individually and as a team.

There is one championship that is challenged by female wrestlers. Paige is presently in her first reign as WWE Divas Champion as a result of defeating AJ Lee on the April 7, 2014 edition of Raw.
