Triple H had a huge announcement for fans this week on RAW as he revealed a new World Heavyweight Championship title. The winner of that new belt will be determined at Night of Champions in Saudi Arabia on May 27th, and it will go to whichever brand doesn’t get Roman Reigns.

Ringside News exclusively reported that the new WWE World Heavyweight Championship was on Triple H’s agenda for a very long time. It turns out that this title was indeed a long time coming, dating back a year at this point.

The Wrestling Observer Newsletter dropped an update about the new World Heavyweight Title as they provided a bit of insight on the company’s planning process. This idea literally dates back to April 3rd of 2022 when WrestleMania 38 went down in Dallas, Texas.

The decision to add the second title was the reason last week the show’s name was changed from King & Queen of the Ring to Night of Champions. The idea of bringing back the second title dates back literally to when the titles were unified at the April 3, 2022, WrestleMania show in Dallas when Roman Reigns beat Brock Lesnar. We had been told before the match that the company felt it needed two titles, but also based on the Mania stipulation, it had to wait a certain length of time before creating the second one.


We will have to see how WWE handles a new title belt. They need to make it look strong, and pick a fitting champion to carry that title. Although there is a current front-runner, it is also important to remember that anything can happen with Vince McMahon around.

Ringside News was exclusively told that even if Seth Rollins is the top candidate right now, the new champion will be “the leading candidate that ends up with the title when Vince changes things.” That being said, Mr. McMahon could still change anything he wants at this point. After all, we still have a long way to go until Night of Champions goes down.

Roman Reigns will continue as an unbeatable champion on whichever brand he is on. We still have no idea if he will continue carrying two titles on that show, but the Tribal Chief’s saga will certainly continue.
