Roman Reigns recently etched his name in WWE history by surpassing Pedro Morales to be the fourth-longest reigning world champion in WWE history with a reign that's looking to be extended to well over 1,000 days. Reigns isn't looking to defend his Undisputed WWE Universal Championship until SummerSlam in August, at the very least. Instead, he's involved in the captivating Bloodline Civil War tag match with Solo Sikoa and The Usos that takes place at Money in the Bank in London on July 1.
In the middle of this all-time run, Paul Heyman recently joined The Pat McAfee Show where talked about Reigns and how, in his own words, can only get better as he constantly fights against his future self.
Reigns, according to the Special Counsel, is always in a battle with his future self, always striving to be a better man than he is today and tomorrow, perpetually evolving. To quote Heyman, "The Roman Reigns of tomorrow has to be better than the Roman Reigns of today, and the Roman Reigns two days from now needs to be better than the Roman Reigns tomorrow."
This is a testament to the drive, resolve, and relentless ambition driving Roman Reigns to retain his position atop the totem pole.
And, while most see Reigns as vulnerable as ever due to The Bloodline's recent troubles, Heyman dismisses the recent split of The Usos as "growing pains."
Going back to Reigns, Heyman says that The Head of the Table is Jordanesque in his approach to self-improvement. His aim, just like Michael Jordan, is to constantly outdo himself, out-work, out-perform, and out-class everyone else, including his own past achievements. That's a mindset that paves the way to legendary status.
Heyman further reinforced Reigns' legacy by praising his championship run as the greatest in pro wrestling. Imagine this: neither Steve Austin, John Cena, nor The Rock has held the title for 1,000 days. Reigns is in uncharted territory, facing an unrivaled level of competition. Yet, he stands tall, a testament to his prowess.
As we stand on the brink of yet another milestone for Reigns, it's worth considering Heyman's words about Reigns. Is his run so phenomenal that it outshines the likes of Hulk Hogan, "Stone Cold" Steve Austin, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, and John Cena? The storytelling, the drama, and the raw intensity packed into this storyline seem to suggest so. But we're getting ahead of ourselves here, folks. The final chapter of The Bloodline's story has yet to be written, and only time will tell whether Reigns' reign will indeed be considered the GOAT.
Until then, we'll be here, on the edge of our seats, savoring every Superman Punch, every spear, and every dramatic twist in this wrestling saga.
