WWE has made a significant change to the status of Roman Reigns’ dual reign as the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion.
Since winning the Universal Championship at Payback in 2020 and the WWE Championship at WrestleMania 38 in 2022, Reigns has been recognized as the undisputed champion. However, there has been some speculation about whether his two belts were considered separate championships or one singular championship.
Previously, WWE.com listed Reigns twice in the champions section, once as Universal Champion and once as WWE Champion, indicating that they were treated as separate titles. However, a recent update to the website has consolidated Reigns’ status into one listing as the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion. This change suggests that his two belts now represent a single championship instead of two separate ones.
A similar consolidation has occurred with the tag team champions Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn. They were previously listed separately as RAW Tag Team Champions and SmackDown Tag Team Champions but are now listed once as the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Champions.
While it’s important to note that WWE.com may not always reflect internal decisions, this update provides insight into how WWE is presenting Reigns’ championship reigns to the public. As Night of Champions approaches, where a new WWE World Heavyweight Champion will be crowned, either Seth Rollins or AJ Styles, it remains to be seen how the title consolidation will affect the overall landscape of WWE’s championships.
