Roman Reigns will enter WrestleMania 39 as the most dominant champion of the modern era.
The Tribal Chief has held the Universal Championship for over 940 days and it has been just under a year since he defeated Brock Lesnar to unify that title with the WWE Championship at WrestleMania 38.
He has also built a formidable faction around him, The Bloodline, which consists of his cousins The Usos and Solo Sikoa, as well as his Special Counsel, Paul Heyman. The Usos have achieved history in their own right, having unified the Raw and SmackDown Tag Team Championships.
However all of this could come crashing down at The Showcase of the Immortals as on Night 1, The Usos will defend their titles against Kevin Owens and a former member of The Bloodline, Sami Zayn.
Then, on Night 2, Reigns will face one of the biggest challenges of his reign as he defends his titles against the winner of the 2023 Royal Rumble, Cody Rhodes, a man who has been undefeated since returning to WWE one year ago.
If the worst comes to the worst for Reigns and he does lose to The American Nightmare, there has been a lot of speculation on what his next move would be. He has now given some insight into what would happen next.
Roman Reigns plans to be around for a long time
Reigns has told AP News that whatever happens on The Grandest Stage Of Them All, he will continue wrestling for a long time. At least, as long as WWE is willing to pay him.
“I feel good. I take care of myself. I’m not running around doing anything crazy. I raise children and dominate the wrestling game. If they keep cutting these insane checks, I’ll stay around.”
Whatever happens at WrestleMania, Reigns will make history one last time. His defence against Rhodes will mark the third consecutive time he has defended a World Title at the annual spectacular, something no other star has achieved.
