Roman Reigns made his surprise return at the WWE SummerSlam pay-per-view in 2020, and he shocked the world shortly after when he won the Universal Championship at Payback. Reigns has been in possession of the title ever since, and he recently made history when he became the longest reigning Universal Champion of all time.
The Tribal Chief has been on a roll over the last few years, but during a recent appearance on the SI Media Podcast he was asked what he would do if Vince McMahon asked him to drop the belt, and he had an interesting response.
“It’s hard to just speculate on that. I would have to be in that situation to truly know where I was. I would have to be able to see all the different variables and be able to see the chain reaction and how it would affect everything.
That’s such a tricky question, I wouldn’t know how to like honestly explain what my mindset would be. I am the man, yeah! He better listen, you know what I am saying. [laughs] He better acknowledge me, you know like who else is there, right?”
One way or another it will be interesting to see how much longer Roman’s run with the title lasts, as he’s currently set to defend the Universal Championship against Seth Rollins at the Royal Rumble on Saturday, January 29th. Stay tuned for more updates as they become available.
