2010 has been a fairly sparse year for title changes, especially the WWE Championship.
Sheamus entered the year as champion but lost the title to John Cena at Elimination Chamber. However, just after the match had finished, Mr. McMahon demanded that the newly crowned champion would face Batista. Batista subsequently won the gold marking one of the shortest title reigns in history.
Cena defeated Batista for the title at WrestleMania and also won the rematch at Extreme Rules in a Last Man Standing match. At the Fatal-4-Way PPV, Sheamus regained the WWE Championship after pinning Cena following interference fom The Nexus.
Current champion Randy Orton won his sixth WWE Championship at Night of Champions in a Six-Pack Elimination Challenge.
Orton successfully defended the title at Hell in a Cell against Sheamus and although he technically lost to Wade Barrett at Bragging Rights, he kept his title. "The Viper" will face off against Barrett again at Survivor Series and I now look at the top 10 contenders for the WWE Championship.
