WWE United States Championship - Title History
Logan Paul

On this page, you find the full Title History for the WWE United States Championship, with all Championship Info, Statistics, the Belt Design changes through the years, and the full list of Title Reigns, along with dates, events, and reign durations.

The WWE United States Championship is a secondary title contested in World Wrestling Entertainment on the SmackDown brand, by men wrestlers.

The championship was first established on January 1, 1975, and the inaugural champion was Harley Race.

Unlike most other championships currently defended on Raw and SmackDown, the United States Championship did not start out as a WWE recognized championship. Rather, the title first emerged in WCW.

Many of the ring's greatest names have staked claim to the U.S. Title during the title's early years, including WWE Hall of Famers Sgt. Slaughter and Greg Valentine. Years later, the U.S. Championship regained the glory it held in years past when competitors like Eddie Guerrero, Booker T and John Cena fought over it in many memorable battles.

The current champion is Logan Paul, who won the title at WWE Crown Jewel 2023 on November 4, 2023, and has been reigning for 229 days.
