WWE Hall of Famer Kevin Nash recently discussed Roman Reigns' dominant run as WWE Universal Champion on his Kliq This podcast. Nash believes it would be unwise for WWE to take the title off of Reigns when he is so close to reaching 1,000 days as champion, comparing it to Cal Ripken Jr.'
s legendary consecutive games streak in Major League Baseball. Nash noted the importance of milestones in wrestling and emphasized Reigns' current status as the top guy in the industry. He believes that Reigns' cool factor and drawing power make him the company's "money guy" and that WWE should continue to build around him as a champion.
Kevin Nash Believes WWE Should Support Top Stars
Reflecting on his world title run and eventual loss to Bret Hart, Nash suggests that if WWE had shown as much faith in him then as they do in Reigns now, he could have had a more historic run as champion.
He believes that the company was not ready to commit to him at the time fully and that this lack of support ultimately limited his success. Nash's comments on Reigns' dominance and the importance of milestones in wrestling highlight the ongoing debate around the length of Reigns' title reign.
While some fans argue that it is time for a new champion, others believe that Reigns should continue to hold the title until he reaches the 1,000-day mark. Regardless of the outcome, Reigns' current run as champion has been one of the most dominant and successful in recent WWE history.
He has consistently been positioned as the company's top heel and has drawn praise for his character work and in-ring performances. Looking ahead, it remains to be seen whether Reigns will continue to hold the title until he reaches the 1,000-day mark or whether WWE will decide to make a change shortly.
However, with his current status as the top guy in the industry, it is clear that Reigns will continue to play a significant role in WWE's plans.
