A definitive history of double champions in WWE

On top of the world. Twice
Daniel Massey

There have not been many wrestlers throughout WWE history who have had the opportunity to hold two championships at the same time. Even less have managed to achieve that dream when presented with a chance.

Currently the US Champion, Roman Reigns may very well make history this weekend as he faces Kevin Owens for the WWE Universal Championship at Roadblock: End of the Line.

This article will take you through a detailed history of the times a wrestler has held two championships at once.

Conor McGregor made the headlines last month by becoming the first two-weight champion in UFC history. Connor held both the featherweight championship and the lightweight championship making him the hottest superstar in that industry right now. To win just one championship in UFC is considered a major accomplishment, so to see the Irishman walk away with two with such ease is just unbelievable.

It really does show the pure class of a wrestler and their position in the company when they are chosen to carry not just one belt, but two. Obviously, in this industry, the company decides who will carry what belt and who will represent each division and though some will say this isn’t properly earned, I can tell you it is.

You have to have all the attributes needed to be a Superstar and you have to be at the top of your game to even carry one championship in the WWE. To say these guys don’t earn what they have would be extremely disrespectful. Even though it isn’t considered a competitive sport and it is, in essence, merely entertainment, the dedication and hard work is not scripted and every championship they hold is most definitely earned.

So without further ado, let’s take a look back at the times a WWE wrestler held two championships at once!
