Mind-Blowing Roman Reigns Storyline Teased After WrestleMania Loss

Roman Reigns Paul Heyman WWE

Roman Reigns isn’t the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion any more, but his WWE boss is excited about what’s to come for the Tribal Chief.

In the main event of WrestleMania 40 Sunday in Philadelphia, Roman Reigns lost the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship after 1316 days as the Universal Champion. That’s because Cody Rhodes was able to overcome Reigns in the Bloodline Rules Match thanks to assists from the likes of Jey Uso, John Cena, and The Undertaker.

While a lot of attention has been on Cody Rhodes as a first-time WWE Champion, there are likely a lot of fans wondering what is next for Roman Reigns for his legendary championship reign that was one of the most impressive reigns by anybody in pro wrestling history.

At the WrestleMania 40 post-show press conference, WWE’s Chief Content Officer Paul “Triple H” Levesque teased the idea of a bigger story for the Tribal Chief, Roman Reigns.

“There’s few guys that come along in our business where you say, during that period of time that they were in it. They changed the industry. He changed the industry. I mean that in front of the camera, I mean that behind the camera, he’s changed the industry. He’s that good. I can’t say enough good stuff about him.

Then to do what he did tonight with Cody Rhodes, it’s not completing the story. It’s just getting to the end of this chapter. Because he’s gonna go on a whole new story now that is going to blow people’s minds I think. I know he’s going to take it to a whole nother level, but I can’t tell you how much respect I have for Roman Reigns.”

Triple H Praises Roman Reigns For His Epic Run In WWE

Earlier in the press conference, Triple H praised Reigns for his incredible run as the WWE Champion and his place in pro wrestling history.

“Before I talk on Cody, let me talk about Roman. There’s a lot of banter about greatest of all time. You can make arguments for a lot of people in that and there’s a lot of metrics that you could measure that by, or opinions or whatever that is. If he is not the, he is one of, absolutely for certain – the greatest of all time.

To do what he has done, to overcome all the things in his career. The positioning and the stuff that he had to get through and hung in there to get where he needed to be. To deal with his physical issues and his health issues to overcome, the pandemic to overcome.

Just everything that he has had to deal with, on the way here. Then to go out there and put on a run like nobody has ever put on before. A run of just epic, epic moments, epic storytelling. I see that word cinema thrown around a lot but it really is.”

While Cody Rhodes will carry on the WWE Championship moving forward, it’s not known exactly when Reigns will be part of WWE television again.
