The Brahma Bull turned his back on the people to become the WWF Champion.

Throughout the history of WWE, there has been no prize, no accolade more sought after, than the WWE Championship.

Currently held by Daniel Bryan, who recently revealed his own unique design of the title, the WWE Championship has been held by some of the all-time greats and has undergone some radical changes.

From Bret Hart to John Cena, from Randy Savage to Jeff Hardy, each champion has added to the title's rich history.

But there are some WWE Superstars, who did not waste time in reaching for the coveted title, and whilst they may have grown up hoping to one day become WWE Champion, they certainly did not have to wait for long.

Here are the five youngest WWE Champions of all time, and their journey's to the top of the food-chain.

#5 Randy Orton (27 years old)

The Legend Killer became a two-time WWE Champion on the very same night in 2007.

Randy Orton may be the youngest World Heavyweight Champion, winning the title at the tender age of 24, but it would be three long years before the Legend Killer would hold the WWE Championship.

We say hold instead of win, as at No Mercy 2007, Orton was literally handed the WWE title by Vince McMahon, who had stripped it from John Cena due to an injury.

Now at a new level of confidence, Orton would even put his newly-acquired title on the line against Triple H, a cocky plan that backfired for the Viper, who lost the title mere minutes into his reign.

Fortunately for Orton, he would regain the title later that same night, defeating the Game, who had successfully defended his WWE championship during the show against the Samoan Bulldozer, Umaga.
