Pro Wrestling Current Champions

The Current Champions Recognized by the WWE & TNA

By

The title that dates back to the birth of the WWE in 1963 is the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.  Between 2002 and 2013, the company had two different world titles.  That situation was rectified in 2013 when Randy Orton unified the WWE and World Heavyweight Championships.  NXT is the company's developmental territory.

Total Nonstop Action is a wrestling organization which dates back to 2002. In order to gain some credibility, they became a member of the National Wrestling Alliance and had exclusive use of the NWA World and Tag Team Championships. The NWA World Championship dates back to 1901. For close to a century, it was the most prestigious title in wrestling. On May 13, 2007, the NWA and TNA severed their business relationship. Their world championship is now referred to as the TNA World Heavyweight Championship.

Ring of Honor is the third largest wrestling company in America. The company, which started promoting matches in 2002, can be seen every weekend on Sinclair Media Group's family of stations.
