Roman Reigns has smashed through another milestone in his historic reign as Undisputed WWE Universal Champion.
The 2020 edition of Payback proved to be a historic event as it was there that the Tribal Chief defeated ‘The Fiend’ Bray Wyatt and Braun Strowman in a No Holds Barred Triple Threat Match to capture the Universal Championship.
After defending that title for over 18 months, the Head Of The Table solidified his place at the top of the promotion when he defeated Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 38 to add the WWE Championship to his collection.
Since then, Reigns has continued to run roughshod through WWE, defeating the likes of Kevin Owens, Jey Uso, and most recently LA Knight. Now, the star has reached a momentous 1,200 days as Universal Champion, putting him only a few weeks away from surpassing the legendary Bruno Sammartino’s second reign, which lasted 1,237 days.
The only men to have a longer record than Reigns in WWE are Hulk Hogan at 1,474 days, Bob Backlund with 2,135 days, and Bruno Sammartino’s first reign which went on for 2,803 days.
Roman Reigns Not Advertised For Major WWE Events
Roman Reigns is not being advertised for two of WWE’s biggest international events. The star has been appearing in the ring less and less each year, with 2023 seeing him wrestling 11 times, with four of those matches being at non-televised live events.
This looks set to continue in 2024, as perhaps surprisingly, The Tribal Chief is not being advertised for either Bash in Berlin on August 31st, or Backlash in France on May 4th.
