A WWE Hall of Famer who, himself, has a record-breaking championship reign isn’t behind Roman Reigns achieving the same.
Kevin Nash had a 358 day reign as WWE Champion in the 90s and addressed the progress of current Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns on the road to his 1,000th day.
Speaking on the Kliq This podcast, the WWE Hall of Famer said:
“When you have 950 days behind somebody, you’ve got to get to a 1000 [days]. You have to!
“It’s like, if baseball was a work, you would make sure somebody surpasses Bonds’ 73 home runs. You’d book that.”
Confident that Reigns will smash the 1,000-day milestone, Nash looked into the future for the Tribal Chief as co-host Sean Oliver considered a lengthy run of seven or more years as an option, saying:
“So, do we do the Bob Backlund? Do we go seven-eight years? I don’t have a problem with it. I’m with you one hundred f**king percent.”
Bruno Sammartino held the WWWF Championship for a staggering 2,803 days from May 17 1963.
Bob Backlund would hold the title for 2,135 days from February 20 1978 in a period that would see the title become the WWF Heavyweight Championship.
Hulk Hogan’s WWF Championship run started in January 1984 and ended after 1,474.
