WWE Universal Championship

When the WWE Championship became exclusive to SmackDown LIVE following the WWE Brand Extension, Stephanie McMahon and Mick Foley created the Universal Championship as the flagship title of Monday Night Raw. 'The Fiend' Bray Wyatt is the current title-holder after defeating Seth Rollins in a Falls Count Anywhere match at Crown Jewel in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.


WWE Universal Championship was established on July 25 2016 in the honor of WWE Universe. It is a World Heavyweight Championship created by WWE. It has headlined many WWE PPV events since then namely including SummerSlam in 2017 and 2018, and WrestleMania 34 which are one of the "Big 4" WWE Pay per view events.
