WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins has set a new record in the WWE, holding the title after cashing in his Money in the Bank contract for 184 days, beating the previous record, according to reports.
Rollins has been the champion since cashing in his Money in the Bank contract at WrestleMania 31 and defeating Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns in the main event.
Since then, he has held the WWE World Heavyweight Championship for 184 days, beating out The Miz, who held the title for 160 days after cashing in, according to NoDQ. Kane was next in line with 154 days.

Rollins has been a good champion, but prior to his win against Sting at Night of Champions, he had only been able to win the WWE World Heavyweight Championship by some sort of outside interference.
This has varied from pay-per-view to pay-per-view, with the likes of The Undertaker getting involved with Rollins' match against Lesnar at Battleground, and former Daily Show host Jon Stewart hitting John Cena with a chair to help The Architect win at SummerSlam.
This could all change at Hell in a Cell, as Rollins is predicted to face Kane in a Hell in a Cell match at the pay-per-view with the WWE World Heavyweight Championship on the line. The Aerialist should pick up the win cleanly, as this would solidify him as a top wrestler, but sometimes you never know what the WWE have up their sleeves.
Kane shouldn't win the championship, it wouldn't make any sense to put the title on him. A beat down could occur on Rollins by The Devil's Favorite Demon after the match to encourage a cash-in by Sheamus. However, it would be better to allow Rollins to walk out with the win to open the door to more worthy opponents in the future.
