Roman Reigns Reaches Incredible Milestone As WWE Universal Champion

Roman Reigns has achieved a significant milestone in his career, surpassing 1,200 days as the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion. This achievement places him within reach of surpassing Bruno Sammartino’s second reign, which lasted 1,237 days.

Reigns’ journey as Universal Champion began at the 2020 edition of Payback, where he triumphed over ‘The Fiend’ Bray Wyatt and Braun Strowman in a No Holds Barred Triple Threat Match. His reign was further solidified at WrestleMania 38, where he defeated Brock Lesnar to add the WWE Championship to his accolades.


Throughout his tenure, Reigns has successfully defended his title against several top competitors, including Kevin Owens, Jey Uso, and most recently LA Knight. His current record of 1,200 days as Universal Champion is nearing the milestones set by legendary figures in WWE history, such as Hulk Hogan’s 1,474 days, Bob Backlund’s 2,135 days, and Bruno Sammartino’s first reign of 2,803 days.

In related news, Reigns is not being advertised for two major upcoming WWE international events. His in-ring appearances have been decreasing each year, with only 11 matches in 2023, four of which were at non-televised live events. This trend appears to continue into 2024, as Reigns is notably absent from the promotional materials for Bash in Berlin on August 31st and Backlash in France on May 4th.
