Reigns tweeted the following after SmackDown:
From Day One.
Acknowledge Us. ☝🏽 “
Paul Heyman wrote the following on Instagram:
“All false humility aside, you’re looking at the most historic run in WWE history. Let’s break it down so simple, even an Instagram user can understand.
Roman Reigns, now WWE’s UNDISPUTED Heavyweight Champion of both RAW and SmackDown. A 620+ day title reign. Unprecedented in modern times.
The Usos, the longest reigning Tag Team Champions in SmackDown history, doing what no other tag team has ever done. UNDISPUTED Tag Team Champions!
And then there’s me. The Special Counsel. The Wiseman. The OG. The Warden of the Uso Penitentiary. Who else has even come close to this level of success? Not Heenan. Not Blassie. Not Albano. Not Grand Wizard, Jimmy Hart, JJ Dillion … no one.
ROMAN REIGNS. HEAVYWEIGHT. CHAMPION. #GOAT … UNDISPUTED!
THE USOS. TAG TEAM. #GOAT … #UNDISPUTED!
PAUL HEYMAN. MANAGER / ADVOCATE / SPECIAL COUNSEL. #GOAT … UNDISPUTED.
Because … and this is now clearly uncontroverted … undeniable …
#UNDISPUTED … WE THE ONES!”
