It’s that time again, where I draw 30 wrestlers in the 30 days leading up to Wrestlemania!

Through the years, one championship has managed to sustain it’s lineage through 3 organizations and 40 years. The United States Championship, beginning in 1975 with the NWA, the championship began it’s life as the primary championship in Jim Crockett’s Mid-Atlantic territory until Crockett gained control of the NWA World Championship where it then became a secondary championship.

When Ted Turner bought Crockett’s promotion and renamed it WCW in 1988, the US Title continued to be the secondary championship and would remain as such until WWF’s purchase of WCW in 2001.

It was one of the championships WWF carried over from WCW and continued to operate as a secondary championship alongside WWF’s Intercontinental Championship. The two championships were unified at Survivor Series 2001 when then US Champion, Edge, defeated IC champion, Test.

In 2003, after a brand extension and renaming of the company, the US Title was revived as the WWE United States Championship and became the secondary championship on the Smackdown brand. Unlike the World Heavyweight Championship, who’s lineage was restarted with it’s revival, the United States title retained it’s lineage dating back to when Harley Race was crowned champion in 1975.

For this year’s 30 Day Wrestler Challenge, I decided to draw the 30 longest reigning United States Champions.
