WWE Hall of Famer Debunks Roman Reigns Record-Breaking Odds

WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle has cast doubt on Roman Reigns' ability to break the all-time record for WWE Championship wins, currently held by Ric Flair and John Cena, who have each achieved an impressive 16 title victories in their careers.

Despite Reigns surpassing an astounding 1,000 days as WWE's top champion, Angle believes that his aspirations for Hollywood stardom, following the paths of The Rock and John Cena, may hinder him from reaching this record-breaking feat.

During a recent episode of the Kurt Angle Show podcast, Angle and co-host Paul Bromwell revisited a July 4th, 2005, episode of Raw, where they discussed the illustrious careers of John Cena and Roman Reigns. Angle openly praised Cena, acknowledging him as the wrestler who enjoyed the best career in WWE history, specifically citing his remarkable 16 World Heavyweight Title victories, an accomplishment that no one has matched thus far.

The WWE Hall of Famer then expressed his reservations about Roman Reigns' chances of surpassing Cena's record. Angle suggested that Reigns might take a detour from wrestling and venture into Hollywood to pursue a career in acting, similar to what The Rock and John Cena had done.

If that happens, it could potentially hinder Reigns' pursuit of the championship record, leaving the door open for other competitors to step up and make their mark on the WWE landscape. Roman Reigns, as the current Universal Champion, is slated to defend his title and legacy at SummerSlam.

Not only will he face his cousin Jey Uso for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship, but the very title of "The Tribal Chief" will also be at stake in a high-stakes Tribal Combat match. After Jey Uso's recent victory over Reigns, becoming the first person to pin him since December 2019, he is brimming with confidence heading into the highly anticipated showdown in Detroit on August 5th.

If Kurt Angle's predictions hold true and Roman Reigns decides to venture into Hollywood, it could lead to a major shift in the WWE landscape, providing opportunities for other superstars like Cody Rhodes to seize the spotlight and potentially become the next dominant figure in the company.

However, until Reigns officially makes any decisions about his future, the WWE Universe remains on the edge of their seats, eager to witness the unfolding drama at SummerSlam and witness if Reigns can maintain his iron grip on the championship and his status as the Tribal Chief.
