Few wrestlers have been able to achieve what Roman Reigns has achieved in these past few years. Ever since he won the Universal Championship three years ago, he has been a force to be reckoned with. Reigns’ quest for gold continued as he defeated Brock Lesnar for the WWE Championship more than a year into his reign.
Just last year, Roman Reigns celebrated two years as Universal Champion and as WrestleMania is right around the corner, Reigns has hit another milestone in his title reign. The Tribal just surpassed 900 days as Universal Champion.
Following the announcement of this milestone, Reigns took to Twitter to let everyone know that he knew this would happen 900 days ago.
“I told you over 900 days ago this would happen.. #GreatnessAmongstYou,” he tweeted.
For the first time since his title reign began, Reigns is facing a legitimate threat of losing the belt as both Sami Zayn and Cody Rhodes are closing in on him. The Head of the Table will defend the title against Zayn at WWE Elimination Chamber and if he wins, then he will have to defend it against Cody Rhodes at WrestleMania 39.
Given the nature of both opponents, this is the first threat that the island of relevancy is facing. We will have to see if either man can do the impossible and dethrone the Tribal Chief. Stay tuned to Ringside News as we bring you similar stories.
