Roman Reigns' WWE Universal Championship reign continues to reach remarkable milestones, solidifying his status as one of the greatest champions in professional wrestling history. Just a month after celebrating his astonishing 1000-day reign, "The Tribal Chief" has achieved another monumental feat, surpassing Pedro Morales' reign of 1027 days.
Reigns has firmly established himself among the elite names in WWE's longest-reigning World Champions, with only three legends ahead of him: Bruno Sammartino, Bob Backlund, and Hulk Hogan.
"Reigns Nears Sammartino's Record"
With his current reign hitting the 1028-day mark, Reigns finds himself a mere 210 days away from breaking Bruno Sammartino's record in his second reign.
Should he reach this monumental milestone, the champion must hold onto the coveted title until early 2024. However, fans eagerly await an even more awe-inspiring achievement, a staggering 1474 days. If Reigns can maintain his grip on the championship until well after WWE Wrestlemania 40 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, he will surpass Hulk Hogan's first reign.
Whether Reigns can catch Hogan's impressive run remains to be seen, but he has already reached the rules of any other champion in the modern era. While acknowledging Reigns' undeniable greatness, the pro wrestling world also ponders how WWE's creative team, led by Vince McMahon and Triple H, will sustain the captivating storylines surrounding Reigns for such an extended period.
As fans eagerly await the unfolding chapters, one cannot help but marvel at the dominance and charisma Reigns brings to the ring. With each passing day, Roman Reigns further etches his name in the annals of wrestling history.
His unrivaled reign as the WWE Universal Champion demonstrates his remarkable skill, unparalleled determination, and the unwavering support of his formidable stable, The Bloodline. As Reigns reigns over the WWE Universe, the wrestling community remains captivated, eagerly anticipating the next chapter in his extraordinary journey.
