Roman Reigns has established himself as one of the greatest pro wrestlers of all time. The Tribal Chief has dominated the competition since his return back in 2020. Reigns is truly infallible at this rate and records simply remain to be broken by him. Now it appears that he was called the modern-day Hulk Hogan recently.

After crossing 1,000 days as champion, Reigns was presented with a new championship. Of course, Reigns is still determined to break more and more records. The Tribal Chief surpassed 1,042 days as champion a couple of days ago, as he became the longest-reigning champion in WWE history since the creation of WrestleMania in 1985.

On the other hand, WWE Hall of Famer Ted DiBiase is certainly one of the most popular and hated heels during the late 80s and early 90s. DiBiase’s character work continues to be iconic and is the blueprint for many pro wrestlers even now.

Ted DiBiase keeps up with the current WWE product and clearly has his favorites. While speaking on his ‘Everybody’s Got Pod’ podcast, Ted DiBiase was asked by a fan which current star he would like to get in the ring with. The Million Dollar Man named Roma Reigns and called him the modern-day Hulk Hogan.


“I’ve got to be real honest. I am not a big fan of the modern era of wrestling. Roman Reigns, I guess (he’s) probably one of their biggest stars now, right? Is Roman Reigns the guy? Is he not like… would he be the Hulk Hogan of modern day?”

Even Hulk Hogan believes he could have drawn lot of money with Roman Reigns. There is also push for him to surpass Hulk Hogan’s title reign. We’ll have to see if Reigns will end up surpassing Hulk Hogan in the end.
