Can Roman Reigns Defend The Championship At WrestleMania 39?

Roman Reigns number one

On April 1st and 2nd, the much-anticipated WrestleMania 39 will take place. This is the event that wrestling fans have been waiting for, and it’s just around the corner already. In this article, we’ll take a look at the event and most importantly, whether Roman Reigns has what it takes to retain the title!

What Is WrestleMania? A Brief History

WrestleMania is the biggest event in WWE’s (World Wrestling Entertainment’s) calendar and has been since 1985 when it was created by Vincent McMahon.

The first WrestleMania took place at Madison Square Garden on March 31st, 1985, when Hulk Hogan defeated The Iron Sheik to become WWF World Heavyweight Champion for the first time ever!

This year, WrestleMania goes to Hollywood.

Who Is Roman Reigns?

Roman Reigns is a professional wrestler whose real name is Leati Anoa’i. He was born on May 25th, 1985, in Pensacola, Florida, and grew up in Georgia.

As an adult, Roman began training at Wild Samoan Pro Wrestling School with Afa Anoa’i Jr., who is one of the most famous Samoan wrestlers ever to have lived. In 2007, he made his debut under his current ring name when he joined WWE. Since then, he has gone on to win two WWE Championships while also being part of several tag teams, including The Shield and The Authority, before finally winning back-to-back Universal Championships at WrestleMania 35 and 36 respectively, making him one of only four people who have ever done so!

As the current champ, he’s going to have his hands full this time with a really tough competitor. In fact, many people are betting on Rhodes to overtake Reigns as the new Universal Champion. This is currently one of the best bets of the day, and for those who predict the winner correctly, it could be a nice payday.

Unsurprisingly, WWE is one of the most popular sports to bet on for fans, and it offers a lot of opportunities to make watching the matches even more fun.

Who Is Cody Rhodes?

Cody Rhodes is the son of legendary Dusty Rhodes and brother of Goldust, whom he wrestled alongside for many years as The American Dream’s two sons in WWE. Cody has also had his own run on top, as Intercontinental Champion back in 2011, but he hasn’t been seen in WWE since 2015 when he left due to creative differences with the company.

Cody returned this past December at TLC: Tables Ladders & Chairs event, where he helped his brother Goldust defeat Baron Corbin and Kurt Angle via pinfall after hitting him with Cross Rhodes off a ladder through another table on top of them both!

Cody Rhodes won the previous Royal Rumble event and is now set to take on Roman Reigns in a championship bout that will be as epic as it will be exciting. It could go down as one of the best WrestleMania matches of all time.

Roman Reigns Has Not Been Pinned In Over 3 Years

Roman Reigns struggled to win over fans during his initial rise to the top of WWE but since returning after a hiatus at SummerSlam in 2020 as The Tribal Chief, he has left his desire to be loved in the past and focussed on in-ring success.

Reigns has not been pinned since the TLC event in December 2019 when he lost to King Corbin. But since then Reigns has risen to dominance with a Universal Title reign that is now fast approaching 1,000 days.

Roman Reigns has seen off challenges from the likes of Daniel Bryan and Edge at WrestleMania 38, Drew McIntyre at Clash at the Castle, and even Goldberg at the Elimination Chamber in 2022. Whether or not Cody Rhodes proves to be the final challenger for his championships remains to be seen.

Will Roman Reigns Lose the Title at WrestleMania 39?

Reigns is set to face Cody Rhodes for the Universal Championship at WrestleMania 39, which may make some fans nervous considering that Cody Rhodes is the Royal Rumble champion. This is probably the toughest event in the entire sport of wrestling as it’s a last-man-standing event where only the strongest one can end up winning.


Roman Reigns is one of the biggest names in the world of wrestling. He’s become a megastar and that’s why his title defense is going to be one of the most watched WrestleManias ever. So, don’t miss this event, and be sure to check it out as the main event of the night going to be absolutely epic!

In conclusion, it’s safe to say that either wrestler has an equal chance of winning. However, the reigning champ has plenty of support on his side.
