The World Heavyweight Championship is a World Title contested in World Wrestling Entertainment on the Raw brand, by men wrestlers.

The championship was first established on April 24, 2023, and the inaugural champion was Seth "Freakin" Rollins.

This is a newer version of the World Heavyweight Championship ('02-'13), with its own distinct lineage.

The new World Heavyweight Championship was announced by Triple H heading into the 2023 WWE Draft. A tournament was held to crown the new champion culminating with Seth" Freakin" Rollins defeating AJ Styles at WWE Night of Champions 2023.

The title was designed with unique features that include Three Lions to symbolize the McMahon Family crest, a Crown to pay homage to Bruno Sammartino, an Eagle as a callback to the original Winged Eagle design of the WWE Championship, diamonds, filagree and rope trim.

The current champion is Damian Priest, who won the title at WWE WrestleMania XL on April 7, 2024, and has been reigning for 74 days (Cashed in the Money in the Bank contract.).
