He’s the future. We are freshly into the unofficial new season for WWE as WrestleMania 38 has come and gone. The main event of the show saw Roman Reigns defeat Brock Lesnar to unify the WWE Championship with his own Universal Championship to become Undisputed WWE Universal Champion. This extends Reigns’ time as champion to nearly 600 days and that number could grow.

According to Wrestlingnews.co, there are no plans for Reigns to lose the title anytime soon. Reigns has been Universal champion since August 30, 2020, making him the fifth longest reigning World Champion in company history. There has been speculation that Reigns will hold the title through next year’s WrestleMania, which will allow WWE to discuss him as the greatest star of all time. There is no word on who Reigns will face, though WWE is hoping that they will be able to get the Rock for the match.

Opinion: I don’t think it is any surprise that Reigns is going to hold the title even longer, though I’m not sure how well that is going to go. At the end of the day, Reigns has been World Champion longer than anyone in modern WWE wrestling and I’m not sure how long that is going to be sustainable. At some point the fans are going to lose interest and I don’t know if WWE can make it last all the way through next WrestleMania.

What do you think of the idea? Who do you want to see Reigns face next? Let us know in the comments below.
