The milestones keep rolling in for Roman Reigns, and this weekend, the Undisputed Champion hit yet another substantial one.
Yesterday, The Tribal Chief reached 1,028 days as Universal Champion, surpassing Pedro Morales’ 1,027 days to become the fifth longest world champion in WWE history.
Reigns now trails Sammartino’s second title run of 1,237 days, Hulk Hogan’s reign of 1,474 days, Bob Backlund’s 2,135-day reign, and finally, Bruno Sammartino’s inaugural reign which lasted 2,803 days.
WWE are seemingly trying to extend Reigns’ title run as much as humanly possible. He didn’t defend the title at Night of Champions, and at Money in the Bank next weekend, he’s competing in a tag-team matchup. Reigns is likely to defend the title at SummerSlam, but there is virtually zero chance that Reigns will drop the title before WrestleMania next year.
