That’s an interesting note. Roman Reigns has held the WWE Universal Title for over two and a half years while racking up one milestone as champion after another. It has reached the point where it is almost impossible to imagine him losing the title, but it is going to have to happen at some point. That point will not be happening at the next WWE Premium Live Event though, which is somewhat surprising for two reasons.

This week on SmackDown, it was announced that Reigns and Solo Sikoa will team together at Night Of Champions to challenge Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens for the Tag Team Titles. Barring Reigns having to defend his title in a separate match, this will mark a rare occasion where a major title will not be defended at the WWE Night Of Champions event. In addition, the show will mark 1,000 of Reigns’ title reign, though at the moment, he is not expected to defend the title there.

Reigns has been a force. Check out some of his title defenses:

Opinion: That is an interesting way to go and I am more than a bit surprised that WWE went in this direction. While it makes sense to have Reigns want to clean up the Usos’ mess and while WWE does not have a major challenger ready for Reigns at the minute, it is still odd to see Reigns hitting a major milestone at a show about champions without defending the title he is best known for holding.

What do you think of the decision? How long will Reigns be champion? Let us know in the comments below.
