The United States Championship's history is highlighted with Hall of Famers like Ric Flair and future members of that group like John Cena, but who was the best champ from each state?

The title's history dates back to Harley Race defeating Johnny Weaver in 1975. Since then, men from everywhere from Arkansas to Wisconsin have won and defended it. It's a championship that has traveled from the NWA to WCW and now to WWE, where Dean Ambrose carries on the tradition.

Each man considered for this list will represent the state they were born in, not necessarily where they grew up. So though Ric Flair is so closely associated with the Carolinas, he was actually born in Memphis, Tennessee and so gets the nod for best champ from that state.

The following United States titleholders from a wide of range of America's states are ranked based on the length of their reign and their popularity, as well as their influence and impact as champ.
