Will Roman Reigns Defy the Odds and Keep his Title Run Going Strong at WrestleMania XL? A Look at WWE’s Historical Greatest Title Runs

Which WWE superstar holds the record for the most world titles? And who has the longest reigns in history?

WWE’s current champion, Roman Reigns, has been reigning for over three years and his title run is still going strong. But with WrestleMania XL just around the corner, many are wondering if Reigns will be able to continue this impressive streak. In terms of historical significance, how does his reign compare to other great title runs in WWE? And who holds the record for the longest world title reign?

Looking back at WWE history, it’s clear that some wrestlers have had more successful title runs than others. Bruno Sammartino holds the record for the longest reign as champion, with an impressive seven-year run from 1973 to 1980. While modern stars like Reigns, Brock Lesnar, and CM Punk have also had significant title reigns of over a year, they can’t quite match up to Sammartino’s incredible longevity in the ring.

When it comes to the most world title reigns in WWE history, there are two wrestlers who stand out above the rest: “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair and John Cena. Flair has had a staggering 26 championship reigns throughout his career, while Cena has had a total of 16 reigns as of late 2021. Among active full-time WWE stars, Randy Orton leads the way with 14 championship reigns under his belt. But when it comes to sheer number of championship reigns, no one can touch Flair or Cena.
