Roman Reigns has broken his silence following his loss at WWE WrestleMania 40 Sunday, where he surrendered the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship to Cody Rhodes in a highly anticipated showdown.

The headlining match of night one saw Reigns team up with The Rock to take on Cody Rhodes and Seth Rollins, with the heels emerging victorious. This set the stage for Rhodes to claim the championship from Reigns the following night, ending Reigns’ impressive reign as champion, which spanned over 1,300 days. While it’s not confirmed, there’s speculation that Reigns may take some time off from television following the match.

Reigns’ journey to the Universal Championship has been illustrious, with notable victories over formidable opponents such as Braun Strowman, Bray Wyatt, Daniel Bryan, Edge, Kevin Owens, and others. His crowning achievement came at WrestleMania 38 when he defeated Brock Lesnar to unify the WWE Universal Championship with the WWE Championship, thus becoming the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion.

In recent tweet, Reigns shared a video of himself walking on a treadmill with the caption, “Yesterday I mourned. Today is Day 1.” This cryptic message suggests that Reigns is gearing up for a new chapter in his career, ready to embark on a fresh journey following his loss at WrestleMania 40.


While Reigns’ future plans remain uncertain, his resilience and determination are evident as he prepares for what lies ahead.
