Roman Reigns has been the WWE Champion for over three years, and fans are eagerly anticipating if he will be able to retain his title at WrestleMania XL. With a reign that spans nearly 1,300 days, Reigns is among the longest-reigning champions in wrestling history. He joins the ranks of wrestling legends such as Bruno Sammartino, Bob Backlund and Hulk Hogan, who also held the title for extended periods.

Sammartino’s seven-year reign is widely regarded as the gold standard for title wins in wrestling history. While modern stars like Reigns, Brock Lesnar and CM Punk have had impressive runs as world champions, they may never match Sammartino’s longevity in the ring.

When it comes to the most world titles in WWE history, Ric Flair and John Cena stand atop the list with 16 reigns each. Among active superstars, Randy Orton leads the way with 14 reigns, followed closely by Reigns and CM Punk with six each. It’s clear that these four superstars are among the greatest of all time when it comes to WWE championship success.
