The WWE Championship
The WWE Championship

The WWE Championship is the most coveted prize in all of professional wrestling, and it has been held by some of the greatest performers in wrestling history, so winning it is kind of a big deal.

When these championship victories are accompanied by tremendous stories and build ups, it makes that moment even better, resulting in some of the biggest pops the WWE has ever seen.

At the moment, Kofi Kingston is on the climb to the WWE Championship after 11 years of hard work, fantastic matches, and loyalty to the WWE, so when he finally does get that moment (if he does), it's going to be incredible.

Whether it would find its way onto our list or not, only time will tell, but for right now, we are going to look back at past WWE Championship victories and rank the 6 greatest in the history of this illustrious championship.


#6 Seth Rollins at WrestleMania 31

The Architect!

Money in the Bank has been a fantastic concept for the WWE over the past 15 years, and it has elevated some stars from fringe main event players to top guys, and that's exactly what happened for Seth Rollins.

The WrestleMania 31 main event was a hard-fought battle between Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns, but towards the end of the bout, Rollins appeared, hit Reigns with the Curb Stomp and became the new WWE World Heavyweight Champion.

Michael Cole was quick to call it 'The Heist of the Century' while Seth celebrated on the ramp, and it's now become one of the most iconic moments of this entire generation.

Despite being the biggest heel in the company, Seth got an amazing reaction from the Santa Clara crowd, arguably solidifying himself as the new face of WWE, and in the process, giving himself another magical moment to add to his Hall of Fame worthy career.
