Roman Reigns headlining WrestleMania now became more like an eternal truth to us. He has been there as the reigning world champion for the longest tenure. He has also unified two top WWE titles at WrestleMania 38 last year. On the other hand, Cody Rhodes is also preparing his best for the biggest match of his career so far. The big question remains whether Rhodes’ effort is enough to beat the unbeaten Roman Reigns or whether the Tribal’s chief dominant reign continues.

Well, we all know that every good thing must have an end to it. But all Roman Reigns fans out there are likely to go with the exception when it’s come to their favorite superstar. To them, it’s just a matter of time to see The Tribal Chief passing another year or more successfully with his top dog status intact. At least, the comment section of a recent tweet from Wrestle Features says so.

Hulk Hogan, who set his own unparalleled legacy in his era, was and is still a sensation among WWE freaks. But Roman Reigns is slowly etching his way to that place and doing justice to his ‘Hulk Hogan of this generation’ title. Even some of the fans are dead sure of the fact that The Tribal Chief will comfortably break Hogan’s record like all the previous ones that came his way.

There is an inevitable comparison exists between Roman Reigns and his predecessor, John Cena from whom Reigns took over the company’s poster boy image. Addressing that comparison, fans lay down a few statistics showing Reigns’s greatness over Cena.

Diving a little deeper than the crowd, some of them even think that Roman Reigns will never lose his fan-favorite position, even after losing the title.

The Roman Reigns era ending is just not fitting for all the good reasons. The 37-year-old has main evented 6 WrestleManias so far and is rightfully considered one of the best in the history of WWE. Roman Reigns vs Brock Lesnar vs Seth Rollins at WrestleMania 31 turned one of the best from one of the worst real quick despite Roman Reigns and Lesnar both losing to Rollins. Finally, at WrestleMania 38, Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns faced each other, and it resulted in Reigns’s victory over Lesnar. Though the match was quite forgettable.

At WrestleMania 33, Roman Reigns defeated the Deadman. The WWE champion didn’t get the appropriate shine from beating the legend due to the Deadman’s decline over the years. However, the best Roman Reigns WrestleMania main event was WrestleMania 37, where he fought against Edge and Daniel Bryan and ended up defending his title against two of the toughest opponent.
