During his 26-month reign as the Universal Champion, Roman Reigns accomplished a variety of outstanding milestones. Now, you can add one more to his list of accomplishments.
In the “Winner Takes All” main event of WrestleMania 38, Reigns defeated Brock Lesnar to win the WWE and Universal Championships. The Tribal Chief has now held both of the belts for 200 days, making him the undisputed WWE Universal Champion (and counting).
In addition, Reigns has held the Universal Championship for nearly 800 days (782 days and counting). At the Payback 2020 pay-per-view on August 30, where Reigns defeated Braun Strowman and Bray Wyatt in a triple threat match to become the champion, his title reign officially began.
Even more astonishingly, Reigns hasn’t managed a clean finish throughout his current reign as Universal champion. In actuality, King Corbin defeated him by pinfall on December 15 at the 2019 TLC: Tables, Ladders & Chairs. Even though, Corbin’s victory over Ziggler and The Revival in the match wasn’t quite a clean defeat.
Don’t Expect Reigns’ Run To End Any Time Soon
Simply told, there is no plausible scenario in which Paul defeats Reigns easily and becomes the undisputed WWE Universal Champion. It’s improbable that Reigns will lose his championship at Survivor Series WarGames (Nov. 26 at TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts), even though he currently has a lot of time free thanks to his new WWE contract.
The most likely time and location for Reigns to lose his championship are during WrestleMania 39, which will take place on the weekend of April 1-2 at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California. Although it hasn’t been officially confirmed, The Rock is rumoured to be Reigns’ opponent at WM 39. Another strong contender is Cody Rhodes, and it makes sense for him to fight Reigns there to win the championship.
