WWE Champion Predicts His Reign Will Surpass Roman Reigns’ Title Run

WWE Champion Predicts His Reign Will Surpass Roman Reigns’ Title Run WWE

WWE Tag Team Champions Austin Theory and Grayson Waller have commented on their upcoming title defence against the Street Profits.

After winning the SmackDown Tag Team Championship during the six-way ladder match at WrestleMania 40, Theory and Waller attended a special title ceremony on the April 19 edition of SmackDown.

During this ceremony, the SmackDown Tag Team Title was retired, and A-Town Down Under were named the new WWE Tag Team Champions.

Later in the night, Angelo Dawkins and Montez Ford of the Street Profits won a four-way match to become the #1 contenders to Theory and Waller’s Championship.

During a WWE Digital Exclusive video taken during Waller and Theory’s championship photoshoot, the duo stated that the title will not change hands anytime soon.

Stating that their stint with the gold will be longer than Roman Reigns’ WWE Undisputed Universal Championship run, they said:

Waller: “We said a few weeks ago when we beat them that we are the smoke. So if they want the smoke, we got it for them. We’re just gonna go through them again, undefeated tag team champions.

“It’s gonna be a long time. Roman Reigns’ reign (laughs) ain’t gonna be anything close to ours.”

Theory: “I’ll tell you what, it’s just still mind-blowing to me that you interrupt us, the greatest undefeated tag team champions of all time. Brand-new championships for the first time ever. Nobody’s ever had these.

“Then you come in here, and you’re talking about two randoms. Sure, sure, they got a number one contender match, sure. But guess what’s gonna happen? (Points to Waller) and this (looks at his title), it’s not gonna change.

“We’re the champs, and we’re forever the champs. The time that we put away these tag team championships is when we feel like it, when we wanna put them on the shelf, on a plaque in our house.”

Roman Reigns held the WWE Universal Championship for 1316 days ahead of him dropping the gold to Cody Rhodes in the main event of WrestleMania 40.

Rhodes’ title challenger for the upcoming Backlash pay-per-view has now been confirmed, which you can read more about right here.
