Roman Reigns Hits Another WWE Milestone

Roman Reigns

August 30th 2020 will always be a special day for Roman Reigns.

The aforementioned day was when the 2020 Payback event took place in WWE and was when The Tribal Chief’s historic Universal Championship reign would begin. Reigns would defeat “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt and Braun Strowman in a No Holds Barred Triple Threat match to become the top champion of the company for the next 3 years and counting.

The victory also ended the late Wyatt’s final-ever title reign at just seven days, as WWE made the decision to host SummerSlam one week prior. It was at this event that Reigns made the shocking return to the Thunder Dome following Wyatt defeating Strowman to begin his second reign as Universal Champion.

Now over 1,000 days later and on the anniversary of the win, there appear to be no immediate plans for Roman Reigns moving forward. The Head of The Table will not be appearing at the 2023 Payback event and has not been advertised for Survivor Series either.

Roman Reigns’ 3 Years Of Dominance

Reigns truly looks unstoppable in his record-setting run as champion, retaining the championship on multiple occasions where a dethroning appeared to be inevitable. The Tribal Chief has defended the title 29 times against 17 opponents on three separate continents. With there being rumours that Reigns will keep hold of the championship until at least WrestleMania 40, some fans have expressed their frustrations online, stating that the title should have changed hands at WrestleMania 39 and have Cody Rhodes walk out as the new champion. It has since been reported that those in WWE disagree with this statement and feel the right call was made.
