Wrestlers with the potential to end Roman Reigns’ WWE reign

Roman Reigns’ 1,207-day reign as Undisputed WWE Universal Champion stands as a testament to his dominance. The Head of the Table unified the WWE Championship and Universal Championship at the main event of WrestleMania 38 by defeating Brock Lesnar.

Reigns also holds an undefeated streak for more than 1000 days, and he recently defended his championship against LA Knight at Crown Jewel and retained his title. Even though Reigns has defeated all his opponents, there are some superstars who have the potential to end his reign and become the new face of WWE.

Which 6 WWE superstars could end Roman Reigns’ reign of dominance?

Jey Uso has the potential to dethrone Roman, as he has pinned him before at Money in the Bank 2023, ending his 1,294-day undefeated streak. Jey also knows Roman’s strengths and weaknesses, as they have faced each other several times in the past. He has the skills, the passion, and the fan support to challenge The Tribal Chief and possibly end his reign of dominance.

Gunther, the reigning Intercontinental Champion has been on a tear in NXT, showcasing his unmatched strength and technical mastery. Should he be called up to the main roster, Gunther’s imposing presence and ruthless in-ring style could pose a significant challenge to Reigns’ reign.

A member of The Bloodline and a budding superstar in WWE, Solo Sikoa is known for his brutal fighting style. While Sikoa has been instrumental in Reigns’ championship defenses against several opponents, he may one day be Reigns’ nemesis and dethrone him someday. 

The World Heavy Weight Champion Seth Rollins is another of the possible contenders to dethrone Roman Reigns. Rollins and Reigns have a history both as allies and rivals. Rollins is the only wrestler who has not been pinned by Reigns during his current title reign, as he won by disqualification at Royal Rumble 2022.

CM Punk is one of the most popular wrestler and recently made his return to WWE after ten years. Punk has expressed interest in facing Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship. Some fans and experts believe that Punk could be the one to finally dethrone Reigns, as he has the star power, the skills, and the fan support to challenge The Tribal Chief.

At last the “American Nightmare”, Cody Rhodes is the one who can possibly dethrone Reigns. Rhodes returned to WWE in 2022, capturing the Royal Rumble and earning a WrestleMania 39 showdown with Reigns, but couldn’t get his hands on the Championship.

Rhodes’ legacy as a former WWE Champion and his passionate connection with the fans give him the aura of a worthy challenger. His in-ring storytelling ability and high-flying move set could pose a serious threat to Reigns streak and it could happen at Wrestlemania 40.

Who are the two wrestlers who secured wins over Roman Reigns at WrestleMania?

At the main event of Wrestlemania 31, Seth Rollins pinned Roman Reigns to win the WWE Championship. Rollins vs Reigns was not the original match at WrestleMania 31. It was supposed to be Brock Lesnar vs Reigns for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.

Rollins cashed in his Money in the Bank contract during the match and made it a triple threat. Rollins then pinned Reigns after a Curb Stomp and won the title, shocking the WWE Universe.

Brock Lesnar vs Roman Reigns was the main event of WrestleMania 34, which took place on April 8, 2018 at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana. It was a Universal Championship match, with Lesnar defending his title against Reigns.

The match was brutal and bloody, with Lesnar hitting Reigns with six F-5s, one of them through an announce table. Reigns fought back with multiple spears and Superman punches, but he could not keep Lesnar down. Lesnar finally pinned Reigns after a seventh F-5, retaining his title and shocking the WWE Universe

These are the only two instances where Roman Reigns was pinned or submitted at WrestleMania throughout his entire career, highlighting the magnitude of their accomplishments. Both Lesnar and Rollins proved to be formidable opponents who could overcome Reigns’ dominance, leaving their mark on the grandest stage of them all.
