Roman Reigns, arguably will go down in history as one of the greatest WWE superstars of all time. His level of success and fame has reached such unprecedented heights that his Wiseman, Paul Heyman envisions a huge coronation for his Tribal Chief.
During his recent appearance on The Pat McAfee Show, Heyman had massive praise for Reigns’ four-year-long title reign, calling it a rare feat to achieve in the modern era, and gave his reasoning for The Head of the Table being deserving of his own Mount Rushmore.
“Because in the modern era, no one can hold the title this long. It’s impossible. The system is not designed for that to happen. The same way the system is not designed through the Major League Baseball draft, the NBA draft, the NHL draft, the NFL draft, for a real dynasty to take place anymore.“
“The game is not designed for that anymore, nor is WWE. WWE doesn’t want a champion for four years straight. They just don’t; it’s too dominant … Roman Reigns has bucked against the system and has maintained that level of dominance at the very top where no one else is even in his stratosphere.”
Roman Reigns’ impressive title reign began at the onset of his huge character change, which made its first appearance at WWE SummerSlam 2020. He went on to win the WWE Universal Title a few weeks later and has been champion since then.
The Tribal Chief has vanquished the likes of Brock Lesnar, Cody Rhodes, and John Cena during his remarkable and lengthy title reign and has cemented his place as perhaps, the biggest star of this generation.
Roman Reigns is currently rumored to face his iconic cousin, The Rock in the main event of WrestleMania 40. With the road to The Show of Shows beginning this Saturday, it will be interesting to see if Reigns can extend his title run beyond that or face his ultimate demise at the hands of another WWE superstar.
