A Reign Unchallenged

Roman Reigns has held the Universal Championship since Payback 2020, and he unified this title with the WWE Championship at WrestleMania 38.

His reign has been marked by numerous milestones, but this recent one is not something to be proud of. The last time Reigns defended his title was against Cody Rhodes at WrestleMania 39.

Since then, he has not stepped into the ring to defend his title on TV or a Premium Live Event, marking a full 100 days without a title defence.

The Rule That Was

Historically, WWE had an unspoken rule that all champions must defend their titles at least once every 30 days.

This rule, however, has seen less enforcement in recent years. Reigns’ current run is a glaring example of this trend.

The 100-day milestone without a title defence is a stark deviation from this rule, and it has not gone unnoticed by the fans.
