WWE World Heavyweight Championship History – The World Heavyweight Championship came as a result of Roman Reigns and the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship. After Reigns became undisputed champion in April 2022, he defended the tandem title across both brands, but these defenses were infrequent due to the terms of his contract.
The title is distinct from WWE’s previous World Heavyweight Championship that was contested from 2002 until 2013 when it was unified into the WWE Championship. The two titles share the same name, but do not share the same lineage.
The title was designed with unique features that include Three Lions to symbolize the McMahon Family crest, a Crown to pay homage to Bruno Samartino, an Eagle as a callback to the original Winged Eagle design of the WWE Championship, diamonds, filagree and rope trim.
