Roman Reigns has solidified his status as one of the greatest professional wrestlers of all time. Reigns’ remarkable track record suggests an unparalleled level of success, and he appears poised to continue breaking records in the world of professional wrestling. After his recent feat, now Reigns has joined an exclusive club of historic title reigns as well.

Roman Reigns’ extended tenure as the WWE Universal Champion has sparked mixed reactions among fans. Some perceive his reign as extraordinary, while others view it as potentially manipulated, with accusations that the number of days as champion may be artificially inflated.

In case you didn’t know, Reigns recently surpassed 1238 days as the WWE Universal Champion. This achievement places him ahead of Bruno Sammartino’s second WWE Title reign and marks Reigns as holding the fourth-longest WWE title reign in history.

As pointed out by Reddit user ItsMichaelRay, Roman Reigns now has the tenth-longest-reigning champion of any title WWE has ever recognized. The Fabulous Moolah’s reign as Women’s Champion remains the longest in WWE so far, at 10170 days.
