The World Championship titles are the most prestigious titles in the WWE. While some wrestlers have made the title look glorified, in some cases the title has uplifted the careers of several superstars. While some player has not even lifted the title once, some players have won it multiple times.

There are a few WWE superstars, who might retire in the near future. These players have won the world titles a record number of times. However, before their departure it would be wonderful if they get to reign one more time as the World Champion. Below is the list of 6 such wrestlers.

6. Undertaker (Special Mention)

The 'phenom' Undertaker is a living legend. He is a former 7 times World Champion. He has won 24 matches, out of his 26 matches at WrestleMania. Taker has delivered some of the best rivalries and story-lines in the WWE. He is a part timer and competes ocasionally.

Undertaker is not going to hover longer in the WWE and his career would end sooner. However, he still has a lot of wrestling left in him. WWE management could book him one last match for the World Title. He could face either Brock Lesnar or AJ Styles. This could be a phenomenal end to his legendary career.

5. Chris Jericho

Chris Jericho is the first ever undisputed WWF World Heavyweight Champion in the WWE. He has won several Championships across the globe and is one of the greatest wrestlers of his time. Jericho has headlined several PPV's and did main-event many shows.

He is a former 6 times World Champion. Jericho is no more a full time competitor in WWE and at 47 years, he is not getting any younger. He will retire soon enough, and it would be a perfect ending to his career, if he gets to wear the World Championship one last time around his waist.

4. Triple H

Triple H is a 14 time World Champion and has the second most number of reigns behind John Cena and Ric Flair. He has performed both as a heel and as a face. He is one of the best Champions, WWE has ever had. Currently, he is acting as the COO of WWE and wrestles as a part-timer.

Triple H has gifted us several memories as a World Champion. WWE Universe would love to see him one last time as their WWE or Universal Champion. It would be a glorious end to his wrestling career, if he wins any of the World title just once more and give the WWE Universe, what's 'best for business'.

3. Big Show

Big Show is a veteran in the WWE and is one of the only two wrestlers currently in the roster to have held the WWE Championship, the ECW Championship and the World Heavyweight Championship. He has been involved in several rivalries in his career and was one of the most entertaining players in the WWE.

Show is currently inactive owing to his injury. When he returns, it would be delightful to see him getting an opportunity to compete for the World Championship in WWE. He is a 5 time World Champion currently and should become 6 time before departing from the organization.

2. Kane

Kane is someone who destroyed several wrestlers in his career through his jaw-dropping moves. He has also won the WWE, World Heavyweight and the ECW Championship. Even though he feuded for the Universal title aling with Braun Strowman and Brock LEsnar, he has not won the title.

Since, he is into active politics, it won't be much longer before he decides to pack his boots in the WWE. Therefore, WWE could provide him with one more opportunity to compete and win the Universal Champion. It would be an appropriate ending to hos legendary career.

1. John Cena

This man is probably the best wrestler of all time. He has won 16 Word Championship titles and hold the record for maximum reigns along with Ric Flair. However, a wrestler of his caliber deserves to be recognized for the maximum World title reigns. Thus, WWE's creative team should give him one more World Championship reign.

Though, Cena is not likely to retire sooner, he has not won any World Championship title for a long time. He is losing his prominence in the WWE. Therefore, WWE should bring him back his lost glory by giving him one more Universal Championship reign.
