Roman Reigns Passes 500 Days As Universal Champion

WWE has recognised that Roman Reigns has officially passed 500 days as Universal Champion.

Acknowledging the Tribal Chief’s accomplishments, WWE tweeted:

“500 Days of acknowledging our #UniversalChampion @WWERomanReigns”


Reigns won the Universal Championship at Payback 2020, arriving late in the main event to defeat The Fiend and Braun Strowman for the gold. The Tribal Chief has since defended the title 18 times on TV or pay-per-view, conquering the likes of Edge, Brock Lesnar and John Cena during his historic reign.

Most recently defending the title against Sami Zayn in December, Reigns was set to put the title on the line at WWE Day 1 against Brock Lesnar. Reigns tested positive for COVID-19 on the day of the event however, so Lesnar was added to (and ultimately won) the WWE Championship main event.

Seth Rollins will challenge Reigns for the Universal Title at Royal Rumble on January 29. If Reigns makes it to the show with the gold, he will have held the gold for 517 days, which will be the single longest Universal Championship reign in the title’s history.

There have already been four title changes in WWE this year. Keep track of every title change in WWE in 2022 as this link.
