WWE is set to crown a new World Heavyweight Champion at Night of Champions on May 27th. Saudi Arabia will see WWE history go down once again in their country, and now we know where that new title will fit in the record books.
Seth Rollins and AJ Styles will give their all in Saudi Arabia for the new title. This new championship was originally introduced because Roman Reigns is a seemingly unbeatable champion with the Undisputed WWE Universal Title.
According to BWE, WWE has decided where the new World Heavyweight Championship will fit into WWE History. This new title will be considered the same that was introduced in 2002 and remained in the company until 2013.
The new WHC will have its historical linage of 2002 onwards. Saturdays winner will be add to the title holders list.
Randy Orton defeated John Cena to unify the World Heavyweight Championship with the WWE Championship at TLC in 2013. Now, a decade later, that title is coming back.
The new winner of the WWE World Heavyweight Championship will reportedly pick up where Randy Orton left off as the last person to hold that title. We will have to see how the company continues that legacy now that we know how they will consider it in WWE history.
