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. There are three active singles championships, one active tag team championship, and a championship for female wrestlers. Six wrestlers 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 January 26, 2015.

At the top of WWE's championship hierarchy, the WWE World Heavyweight Championship is held by four-time champion Brock Lesnar, who defeated John Cena at SummerSlam on August 17, 2014 to win the title.
