Roman Reigns has been the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion for more than 250 days, while he captured the Universal Title all of the way back in August 2020.
Standing at the top of WWE for such a long period of time means that Reigns has a huge target on his back and no shortage of challengers. While it is believed that this could include Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn and even Dwayne Johnson in the coming months, a whole host of other Superstars have their eye on the Tribal Chief.
LA Knight Aiming To Take The Gold From Roman Reigns
One of those Superstars is LA Knight. While the former Eli Drake has never been World Champion in WWE, he has held the IMPACT Wrestling World Championship in the past. Speaking to Yahoo Entertainment, Knight said that he’s got his eyes on capturing championship gold in WWE, and that means the WWE and Universal Titles.
“To me, legit, I’m sitting here in my office right now looking at my past accomplishments. I’m looking at past championships that are framed on my wall and my eyes are on the top prizes. My eyes somewhere down the road are looking at the Intercontinental Championship, the United States Championship, and beyond even that, I’m looking at the Universal Championship, the WWE Championship and things like that.”
During the conversation, Knight also discussed his current storyline with Bray Wyatt, breaking down the unique challenge of working with the star.
WWE have announced that Roman Reigns will be back on Friday Night SmackDown on December 16th. On the December 9th episode, Jey Uso suggested that Sami Zayn get a haircut and sharpen himself up for the arrival of the Tribal Chief in a week’s time. Jey added another layer of intrigue commenting that it looks like it could be a big night for Zayn after all he has given to The Bloodline in recent weeks.
