10 Longest Reigning US Champions, Where Does Ambrose Rank



Since Harley Race defeated Johnny Weaver on New Year’s Day in 1975 to become the inaugural United States Champion, the man holding that title has been regarded as one of the top grapplers in the wrestling world. In fact, if you look at the list of champions, you’ll see a litany of competitors who went on to become Superstars, World Champions and WWE Hall of Famers, like Roddy Piper, Sting and Ric Flair.

Dean Ambore became the 77th competitor to hold the prestigious title after defeating Kofi Kingston at Extreme Rules on May 19, 2013. Since then, The Shield’s ”Lunatic Fringe” has answered every challenge to his championship, whether by hook or by crook.

    Yeah, Ambrose’s reign is one of the worse title reigns ever and is just proof WWE just uses the belts (or the midcard ones at least) as props to try and make superstars look more impressive. AJ has even fallen under the same thing as of late.
