• Huge WWE Record Broken

Brock Lesnar was the longest World Champion of the modern era, but not anymore.

Lesnar held the WWE Universal Championship for 503 days, from WrestleMania 33 in 2017 to SummerSlam 2018. He lost the Title to Roman Reigns.

The Tribal Chief has now broken Lesnar’s title reign record as well.

Reigns has held the Universal Championship for 504 days now, thus making him the longest Universal Champion of all time and the longest World Champion of the modern era.

He won the Title on August 30, 2020, at the WWE Payback PPV, by defeating “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt and Braun Strowman in a Triple Threat Match.

The last man to have a longer World Title reign in the WWF/E than Roman was Hulk Hogan, who held the WWF Championship for 1,474 days, from January 1984 to February 1988.

An interesting statistic that should be noted here is that the WWE Championship has changed hands 6 times during Roman’s 500+ day Universal Title reign.

Below is the list of these WWE Title changes:

1. Randy Orton defeats Drew McIntyre at Hell In A Cell (October 25, 2020)

2. Drew McIntyre defeats Randy Orton on RAW (November 16, 2020)

3. The Miz defeats Drew McIntyre at Elimination Chamber (February 21, 2021)

4. Bobby Lashley defeats The Miz on RAW (March 1, 2021)

5. Big E defeats Bobby Lashley on RAW (September 13, 2021)

6. Brock Lesnar defeats Big E, Seth Rollins, Kevin Owens & Bobby Lashley at Day 1 (January 1, 2022)

The Head Of The Table tweeted the following about this accomplishment:

“The greatest of this generation, the best to ever hold the #UniversalTitle.

The numbers, the main events, the dominant performances… they don’t lie.

504 days and counting… #GOAT”
