Roman Reigns Breaks GUNTHER’s Impressive WWE Record as Champion

Roman Reigns has added yet another milestone to his impressive run on top as the  Undisputed Universal Champion.

At Payback 2020, Reigns became the Universal Champion when he beat Bray Wyatt and Brown Strowman in a No Holds Barred Triple Threat Match.

He later scored a victory over Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 38 last year. Reigns became the first star to hold both the WWE and Universal Championships simultaneously.
