WWE’s Tribal Chief posted a video of him doing reps with a pair of 120-pound weights. Corbin commented, “Is it half rep day?” The comment received more than a thousand likes and 160 replies at the time of writing. This is surprising, given Corbin’s unpopularity amongst wrestling fans.

Reigns captioned the post- ‘Stronger than the last time I posted this lift. Progress is the daily, monthly and yearly goal. Enjoy the process of breaking through plateaus to continually get better.’ He even responded to Corbin’s comment with a zinger of a comment- “try em out, might help u with those b*tch t*its.”

The unusual friendship between Corbin and Reigns does not extend to the ring. Before the pandemic forced Reigns to take a brief hiatus, Corbin and he were embroiled in a bitter feud. Fresh off of his King of the Ring victory, Corbin targeted Reigns as he looked to make a name for himself on SmackDown.

What is Reigns’ 2021 going to look like?

After a blistering 2020, Roman Reigns will be looking to make 2021 the year he turns the WWE into the Tribal Chief’s yard. Alongside Jey Uso and Paul Heyman, Reigns looks like the most formidable superstar in the current roster. No man or woman comes close to touching the star power of the Tribal Chief.

His rivalry with Kevin Owens highlighted the Big Dog’s ability to be a spectacular heel. KO and Reigns battled it out in two hellacious matches for the Universal Championship. At TLC, Reigns retained the title with Jey Uso’s help, but both KO and he beat each other senseless using the environment. On SmackDown, Reigns once again retained with Uso’s help by escaping a steel cage.

With the Royal Rumble at WrestleMania 37 on the horizon, it might be time for a new challenger to step up to the task. Daniel Bryan seems to be the frontrunner to challenge Reigns for the title at WrestleMania. However, former Universal Champion Goldberg still has some unfinished business with the Tribal Chief.
