The Undertaker has given his thoughts on how Roman Reigns, a former WrestleMania opponent, is doing at the top of WWE.

In the main event of WrestleMania 33 in 2017, The Undertaker lost a No Holds Barred Match to Roman Reigns, who was in the main event of WrestleMania for the third straight year. The Undertaker is not proud of the match because he wasn’t very healthy for it.

Many people thought that WrestleMania 33 match would be The Undertaker’s retirement match, but he did have a few more matches over the next three years.

At Extreme Rules 2019, The Undertaker & Reigns teamed up to beat Drew McIntyre & Shane McMahon in what was The Undertaker’s third last match of his career.

While The Undertaker retired in November 2020, Reigns has been on the best run of his career since 2020. That’s because Reigns has held the Universal Championship for over 1,000 days and the WWE Title for over 400 days.

During an interview with The Independent, The Undertaker praised “The Tribal Chief” Reigns heavily.

“He’s doing a phenomenal job. His character, his talent and everything has grown exponentially through this run. It’s arguably one of the greatest runs ever. I like it because it’s such an old school move, to have the title that long. He’s got to be in the conversation. But do you put him in the same boat as Stone Cold Steve Austin, or Hulk Hogan? I don’t know. Everything’s so subjective when it comes to that.”

“Reigns has the claim to fame now. He’s the man. I mean, it’s not even close, really. He’s had the title for a thousand days. Business is incredible. He picks his own schedule. He’s got a claim, he’s got an argument. I’m really proud of him for how he’s come. It really has been impressive.”

“I would love to be healthy enough to have a match now with Roman Reigns. When we worked at [WrestleMania 33], I was on my last legs. And he wasn’t he wasn’t nearly the performer that he is now.”

On Friday Night Smackdown this week, Roman Reigns will celebrate 1,000 days as the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion.
