Roman Reigns has dominated the WWE landscape like nobody has in decades and with another milestone about to be passed, if you haven’t already, then acknowledge him.
Reigns has ruled SmackDown with an iron fist ever since he made his return to WWE television after a short hiatus at SummerSlam in 2020. Only a few days after that return, Roman Reigns re-captured the Universal Championship and he has held the title ever since.
Surrounded by The Bloodline of The Usos and his Special Counsel Paul Heyman, Roman Reigns added to his title collection and his legacy when he defeated Brock Lesnar in what was billed as the ‘biggest WrestleMania match of all time’ to become the first-ever Unified WWE Universal Champion.
Now it has come to light that Roman Reigns is only days away from holding the Universal Title for an astonishing 600 days. Reigns has already obliterated the record for longest-reigning Universal Champion previously set by Brock Lesnar at 504 days.
The last time a world champion in WWE held a title for over 600 days was Hulk Hogan back in the eighties. The Hulkster’s title reign began in 194 when he defeated The Iron Sheik and ended over four years later when he lost the belt to Andre The Giant. Roman Reigns still has some way to go to reach the 1,474 days as champion that Hogan amassed then.
However, with rumours that the world championships in WWE are set to be split again before long, there is nothing to stop The Tribal Chief from dominating SmackDown as Universal Champion for years to come.
