The WWE Universal Championship is a world heavyweight championship created and promoted by the American professional wrestling promotion WWE on the Raw brand. The current champion is Braun Strowman, who is in his first reign.

It is one of two world titles in the promotion, and was created on January 13, 2020 to rival the WWE Championship, which became exclusive to SmackDown following the re-introduction of the brand extension. The championship is named in honor of the WWE Universe.

Inaugural tournamentEdit

Following the brand extension, Stephanie McMahon created the championship to be exclusive to the Raw brand. A single elimination tournament was setup to determine the new champion.

The tournament began on Raw and concluded at the WrestleMania X pay-per-view.
