Roman Reigns made a remarkable comeback to the WWE that left fans in awe of his incredible impact back in 2020. In a matter of a few months, he asserted his dominance by capturing the Universal Championship and eventually, the WWE Championship. He is also set to cross a huge milestone ahead of WrestleMania 39.
While many of his fans are focused on his upcoming championship defense at WrestleMania 39, where he will put his WWE Undisputed Universal Championship on the line against Cody Rhodes, the Tribal Chief is also on the verge of achieving two other significant feats.
The first of these is the possibility of Reigns becoming the first wrestler in WWE history to hold the Universal Championship for 1000 days. As of March 25, 2023, Reigns has held the title for an impressive 937 days.
This means that he would have to keep the gold around his waist for another two months and two days, until May 27th, in order to reach this milestone. While many people believe that Rhodes is a formidable challenger who could potentially dethrone Reigns, others speculate that Reigns will retain the championship, thus making history in the process.
On March 29th, just four days away, Reigns is set to accomplish another remarkable achievement. He will have gone 1200 days without being pinned, a feat that is not only impressive but also incredibly rare in the world of professional wrestling. The last wrestler to pin Reigns was Baron Corbin, who defeated him at the November 2019 TLC premium live event. Since then, Reigns has technically suffered losses in tag team matches, but he has never been pinned or forced to submit.
Reigns has been on a dominant run since capturing the Universal Championship at the August 2020 Payback show, where he defeated Bray Wyatt and Braun Strowman in a triple threat match. Since then, he has successfully defended his title against numerous opponents, including John Cena, Brock Lesnar, and Daniel Bryan, to name a few.
