15 strange (but true) WWE facts

The stage where more World Champions are crowned

When the WWE Universe thinks of World Title transfers, they undoubtedly conjure up memories of championship wins by the likes of Shawn Michaels, “Stone Cold” Steve Austin and John Cena at WrestleMania. Yet those milestones should not cloud what happens during the best shows on Monday and Friday night.

In fact, more World Titles — the WWE Championship and the World Heavyweight Championship — have changed hands on Raw and SmackDown than on The Showcase of the Immortals. The 25 World Title wins during the longest running weekly episodic television show in history and its blue brand counterpart total up to one more than the 24 changes at WrestleMania.

Of course, it took Raw and SmackDown nearly 1,700 episodes to accomplish those 25 championship changes. With 24 new World Title holders crowned in the 28 editions of WrestleMania, it’s still safe to say that championship dreams are more frequently realized on The Grandest Stage of Them All.
