Acknowledge him, again.
Roman Reigns is now the longest reigning WWE Universal Champion in history at 504 days. He has now dethroned Brock Lesnar, whose longest reign with the championship was 503 days. Ironically, it is also Roman Reigns that ended that title reign for Brock Lesnar back at SummerSlam in 2018.
There are some parallels between Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar and their respective championship reigns. Both hold victories over multiple former World Champions, both were managed by Paul Heyman, both successfully defended their championship at WrestleMania, and each man defeated the other along the way.
Roman Reigns was supposed to face Brock Lesnar again at WWE Day 1 but because he tested positive for COVID, that match ended up not happening and Brock Lesnar, instead, won the WWE Championship and is now a part of the Monday Night Raw roster. However, Brock Lesnar is also a free agent and has been freely appearing on SmackDown as well to remind Roman Reigns that he will have to deal with him eventually.
The next threat to Roman Reigns’ Universal Championship reign is the very man that ended Brock Lesnar’s last run as Universal Champion, Seth Rollins. Roman will face Seth at the Royal Rumble on Saturday, January 29, 2021.
Until the day that somebody dethrones Roman with a title reign that is longer than his own, we must all continue to acknowledge The Tribal Chief of WWE
