Roman Reigns’ current run in WWE should not be understated or taken for granted. He has been on an absolute tear for two years now, and he shows no signs of stopping. That being said, one WWE Superstar is staking his claim on breaking Reigns’ streak.
Xavier Woods won the King of the Ring tournament, and that was a dream come true for him. Although he dropped that crown thanks to the Bloodline bumrushing him and breaking his royal artifacts, Woods still has his eye on Roman Reigns.
While speaking to What Culture, Xavier Woods was very bold about his position in WWE. Woods said he has been killing it, and this marks his 20th year in pro wrestling. He is also very confident that people aren’t talking about him breaking Roman Reigns’ streak for a reason.
“The fact that I won King of the Ring by defeating a former Intercontinental Champion in Ricochet, a former Heavyweight Champion in Jinder Mahal, the first-ever Unievrsal Champion in Finn Balor, and then going on to defeat each of the Usos in singles competition, and then be the only man — sorry, Seth Rollins, we’ll talk about that one but not mine — I’m the first man to break Roman Reigns’ two-year winning streak. People don’t talk about it, why? Tell me why. I don’t understand whhhyyyyy we don’t talk about this! I’ve been killing it. Next year is 20 years in the game.”
We’ll have to see what’s next for Roman Reigns. He is taking Backlash off, which fits his schedule as part-time champion. Only time will tell if he drops that title at SummerSlam in Detroit, but some are also calling for another year of dominance for the Tribal Chief into WrestleMania 40.
What’s your take on Roman Reigns’ warpath through WWE? Is there anyone who can stop him at this point? Sound off in the comments!
