Ranking The Importance Level Of Every Active WWE Championship Title

Less is more.


Believe it or not, there was a time when a championship changing hands in WWE was a major happening.

However, because there are so many titles to go around these days and because of how WWE gives them out to people like candy, they don't mean nearly as much as they did years ago. That is one of the many problems plaguing the product these days.

Of course, some belts are better off than others depending on how frequently the title holders appear on WWE TV and defend their titles, as well as how they positioned on their respective shows. A title change can still result in a memorable moment if done the right way as seen at WrestleMania 35 with Kofi Kingston and the WWE Championship, but that seems to be the exception rather than the rule.

With more thought and effort put into these titles and how they come across, perhaps they can still be salvaged. The longer WWE waits to utilize these once-coveted prizes properly, the less fans will care about them.

(The following list will not feature championships from NXT or NXT UK, simply because they'd likely outrank all of the ones from the main roster. At least Triple H has a good grasp on how champions should be booked on those brands.)
