That’s a long time. Title reigns are some of the most defining spans of time for any wrestling promotion, as they often serve as cutoff points in a company’s history. A long title reign coming to an end can mark the beginning of a new era, especially if that wrestler is set to become the next big star. Now a current reign has reached a mark that has not been seen in a very long time.

On August 30, 2020 at Payback, Roman Reigns won the Universal Title from the Fiend in a triple threat match also involving Braun Strowman. Reigns has held the title ever since, and as of February 16, 2023, he has held the title for 900 days. This is the fifth longest World Title reign in WWE history and the longest since Hulk Hogan’s 1984-1988 reign, which lasted 1,474 days. Reigns is set to defend the title this weekend at Elimination Chamber against Sami Zayn.

Reigns has been a dominant champion. Check out some of his time with the title:

Opinion: It is almost hard to fathom how different Reigns’ time as champion has been as you have to be about 45 years old to remember the meat of a reign like this. There is a real chance that Reigns is going to hold the title through WrestleMania 39 and Pedro Morales’ 1,027 day reign is certainly in sight. That is the kind of thing you do not see because it takes a long time to set up and now Reigns is becoming more impressive every day.

What do you think of the reign? How long will Reigns hold the title? Let us know in the comments below.
