WWE Hall Of Famer Explains Why Roman Reigns Won’t Beat A Certain Record

roman reigns 1000 days

Roman Reigns will not break the all-time record number of WWE Championship wins, according to a Hall of Famer.

Reigns may have surpassed 1,000 days as WWE’s main Champion but will likely not beat the record held by Ric Flair and John Cena, who have both lifted the WWE/WCW World Championships a mammoth 16 times.

This is because a WWE Hall of Famer feels that Reigns is eyeing up a move to Hollywood, following in the footsteps of The Rock and John Cena.

Kurt Angle has been heaping praise on the career of John Cena and also discussed his thoughts on the current Championship reign by The Tribal Chief. Angle was discussing Cena and Reigns during his Kurt Angle Show podcast as he and co-host Paul Bromwell rewatched an episode of Raw from July 4th, 2005.

During the “watch-along” Angle praised Cena, admitting that he feels the 16-time WWE Champion has had the best career in WWE history, before explaining what is stopping Reigns from breaking Cena’s Championship record.

“John Cena, he was maybe two or three years in the business by this time, and here he is on top. I mean, this kid picked it up very quickly, and he had arguably the best career in WWE history.”

“He did win sixteen World Heavyweight Titles in WWE specifically. No one’s ever done that.”

“He’s (Reigns) going to break the record. If he doesn’t skip and go to Hollywood and become a movie star, which I think he’s going to do.”

Kurt Angle recently spoke of the one match that would bring him out of retirement. If Angle is correct in his prediction for Roman Reigns, it would open up an opportunity for Cody Rhodes to finish his story by becoming WWE’s man Champion, but could also pave the way for a new Tribal Chief.

Roman Reigns will be putting his legacy on the line at SummerSlam as not only will Jey Uso be competing for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship, but the place at the head of the table is also on the line.

Following last Friday’s SmackDown, Jey Uso and Roman Reigns agreed to a Tribal Combat match, effectively a no holds barred battle, where the victor will be known as The Tribal Chief.

After being the first person to pin Roman Reigns since December 2019, Jey will be full of confidence heading into Detroit on August 5th.
