Who is the WWE Champion

Kofi Kingston is the current WWE Champion. Kofi won the championship from Daniel Bryan, in a match-up of Wrestlemania 35.


The WWE Championship has a rich and storied tradition, and has come to denote the man who is the face of the company. Currently, you can see the prestigious championship in all its splendour on Tuesday Nights, on the SmackDown Live brand, on a weekly basis.

Of course, you can also see the title defended at Live Events featuring stars from the SmackDown Live brand. Unlike the Universal Champion, the WWE Champion is a full-time performer.


Who has the WWE Championship belt right now? Well, Kofi does,but that doesn’t mean that he’s home free. The belt automatically puts a target on the competitor’s back, as every contender wishes to hold the told spot in the division. The WWE Championship is the prize that many in the current roster have grown up dreaming to possess, and hold aloft in front of the WWE Universe someday.


Unfortunately, only a handful of the participants in the current roster will get to hold it. Several traits determine whom WWE eventually decides to crown as the face of the company. Not only does he have to be a brilliant athlete, a captivating promo, but also a hard worker, as the championship is generally defended multiple times, on every single week.


Styles held the Championship in the past, winning the title only 6 months after arriving in the company. He lost the Championship to John Cena at the Royal Rumble in 2017, and only regained it recently, after a 6-month long reign by Jinder Mahal. Styles’ popularity is the polar opposite of that of Mahal, who’s a foreign heel, while Styles is the all American babyface.
