WWE Acknowledges Its Tribal Chief As Roman Reigns' Universal Title Run Hits 1000 Days

Today officially marks Roman Reigns' thousandth day as Universal Champion. The official WWE Twitter account posted to acknowledge the massive milestone, and to acknowledge the "Tribal Chief" himself. Reigns' massive run with the title began all the way back in August 2020, when he beat Braun Strowman and "The Fiend" Bray Wyatt in a triple threat match.

While his 1000-day run isn't in jeopardy tonight at WWE's Night of Champions premium live event, Reigns will still be competing for championship gold, as he challenges Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens for the Undisputed Tag Team Championship alongside Solo Sikoa.

Reigns' impressive 1000 days as champion has seen him topple the likes of Goldberg, Edge, Bryan Danielson, Owens, Zayn, Jey Uso, and Drew McIntyre. At WrestleMania 38 in 2022, Reigns beat Brock Lesnar to unify the Universal Championship with the WWE Championship.

Should Reigns and Sikoa come out on top later today, Reign's wouldn't be the first man to hold a world championship alongside a tag team title. John Cena, who Reigns has also defended the Universal Championship against, held tag team gold at the same time as the WWE Championship on one occasion.

While his massive reign as champion doesn't appear to be in peril anytime soon, a recent Wrestling Inc. Survey on Twitter 52.6% of users voting that Cody Rhodes should be the one to unseat the Tribal Chief. Rhodes challenged Reigns for his championship at WrestleMania 39 after winning the Royal Rumble match, but came up short due to interference from Sikoa.
