He’s earned it. Roman reigns is rapidly racking up one WWE record and milestone after another, as he approaches three years as WWE Universal Champion. That is the kind of mark that would have seemed almost impossible until Reigns came along but here we are seeing it in real time. That is going to wear you down at some point and now Reigns might be doing something about it.

On The Mend: Missing WWE Star Reveals She Is Recovering From Recent Medical Procedure

According to WrestleVotes by way of GiveMeSport, Reigns is expected to take a “significant break” from WWE after WrestleMania, possibly lasting all the way to Summerslam.

Reigns has already begun working a relaxed schedule and only working major live events and select television shows.

Opinion: This shouldn’t be much of a surprise, as the pressure of being World Champion led to Bruno Sammartino needing a break and now that might be the case for Reigns. At the same time, if WWE wants the next champion to feel like a bigger deal, Reigns needs to be gone so the shadow can go away. Then again, maybe Reigns keeps the title and none of this matters, which would be very interesting.

What will happen to Reigns at WrestleMania? Should he lose the title? Let us know in the comments below.
