Roman Reigns has been WWE’s golden goose for a long time. While the WWE superstar is reaching new heights as the WWE Universal Champion, Paul Heyman declared him a mega-star after his win over Brock Lesnar at Crown Jewel.
The tension between Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns has been on a rise after the Crown Jewel match. The Beast Incarnate promised to beat Reigns on SmackDown, to which the former Shield member replied in a brief manner, stating “I’m an easy man to find on Friday nights. MY SHOW.”
Reigns is about to get another victory over Lesnar, but it’s not going to be in a match inside the ring. When it comes to holding the WWE Universal Title, Brock Lesnar has his leg up with 504 days of consecutively holding the title. Roman Reigns is catching up to him with 424 days of being the title holder. Reigns took to Twitter while announcing his time as the title holder which captioning the tweet “424 days. #AcknowledgeMe.”
Roman Reigns might be a rising competitor to Brock Lesnar, but he still has a long way to go when it comes to all-time days as Universal Champion. Lesnar also has three reigns to the Tribal Chief’s two.
Brock Lesnar still holds the record for carrying the Universal Title combined. He’s held the title for a total of 688. That is almost 200 days away from Reigns, which means he has to tread very carefully if he wants to carry the title for as long as Lesnar and break his all-time number. The thought of Reigns breaking Lesnar’s consecutive number is not out of the question at all.
Reigns is not going to lose his title any time soon. While he might have a match against Big E at Survivor Series, he won’t be risking his title as all matches in the Series are on a brand vs brand contender. Reigns also doesn’t wrestle very often on television in situations where his belt is up for grabs either.
