It is worth another look. Titles are one of the most important things in all of wrestling as they symbolize success. Any fan can figure out the idea behind a title, as the best wrestler has the big title belt. It makes sense to have more than a few titles in a company, but at the same time, there needs to be one title above the rest. That seems to be the case in WWE, and they are now one of the titles has reached a milestone.

As of Monday, Roman Reigns has held the Universal Title for one year. Reigns won the title last year at Payback on August 30, 2020 and has remained champion since. As a result, WWE has released a video looking at his title reign, including clips of major moments from his title reign. This includes both title matches and non-title matches, plus the debut of his new theme song. Reigns has currently held the title for 366 days, giving him the second longest reign in the title’s history, only behind Brock Lesnar’s 504 day reign, which Reigns ended.

It is quite the tribute. Check out Reigns’ tribute and a few other great moments from his title reign:

Opinion: What might impress me the most about Reigns’ reign is the fact that it seems like it could go on for a lot longer. More often than not, a wrestler reaching a year with any given title feels ready to move on, but that is not the case with Reigns. He has managed to keep things fresh due to the performances he puts on every time and it could be a long time before he loses the title.

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