Although The Bloodline is falling apart around him, Roman Reigns has surpassed yet another major milestone as the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion.
Reigns captured the Universal Championship at Payback way back in August 2020. Since then, he has far surpassed multiple reigns in WWE history including those created by John Cena, Randy Savage, and CM Punk.
On May 27th, 2023, he entered rarified air when he achieved 1,000 days with the Universal Title, bringing him into territory only previously entered by Hulk Hogan, Bruno Sammartino, Bob Backlund, and Pedro Morales.
During his time as champion, The Head of the Table has defeated the likes of Edge, Daniel Bryan, Brock Lesnar, John Cena, Drew McIntyre, and Logan Paul. His most recent defence at WrestleMania 39 saw him see off Cody Rhodes.
As of June 24th, he has now passed another milestone. At 1,028 days (and counting), his dominant run surpassed Morales’ 1,027-day reign with the-then WWF Championship. The Tribal Chief’s next target will be Sammartino’s second reign with the title, which lasted a mammoth 1,237 days.
Meanwhile, Reigns has also passed numerous milestones with the WWE Championship he captured from Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 38 in 2022. With 448 days under his belt, he has passed the previous modern record set by CM Punk at 434 days and is now 200 days away from passing Bob Backlund’s 648-day reign in the late 1970s for a second time.
Roman Reigns will be in action at Money In The Bank
While his place in history is now cemented, Reigns is dealing with other matters as The Bloodline has imploded around him. In recent weeks, The Usos have stopped acknowledging their Tribal Chief, instead finding themselves in opposition to him.
Things will come to a head at Money In The Bank when Reigns teams up with Solo Sikoa to take on his cousins in a match dubbed the ‘Bloodline Civil War.’
