5 Accolades Of Roman Reigns Which Are Not Talked About Much

WWE’s measuring stick starts and ends with The Tribal Chief Roman Reigns, regarded as the biggest star of this generation. The recording-breaking Undisputed WWE Universal Champion has been on an unstoppable rampage ever since he underwent a big character change in 2020, reaching his full potential as the megastar perceived by former WWE Chairman and CEO Vince McMahon when he decided to make Reigns the next flagship star back in 2012.

Roman Reigns not only has his current two-year-long reign as champion etched in his glorious WWE resume but several other accolades which make The Tribal Chief one of the most accomplished WWE Superstars of this era. Here are 5 esteemed accolades currently held by the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns:

1. NFL record

Before WWE ever witnessed Roman Reigns inside the squared circle, he started his physical sports career by trying his hand in the NFL.

He was a part of several teams but failed to make a mark due to health issues and went undrafted until he was selected by the NFL teamĀ Edmonton Eskimos of the Canadian Football League (CFL). His most notable accolade in the NFL season came at one of the games played for the Eskimos against the Hamilton Tiger-Cats in September with 5 tackles and a forced fumble tying the team for the lead. However, soon after Reigns was released in November and took retirement from the sport.

2. Survivor Series Eliminations

The first time WWE Universe took notice of a young upstart Roman Reigns was at the 2013 edition of WWE Survivor Series, where Reigns along with his Shield teammates, Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose teamed up with Cesaro and Jack Swagger to battle the team of Rey Mysterio, The Usos, Cody Rhodes and Goldust in a 5 on 5 Traditional Elimination match.

The muscle of the Shield proved to be the game changer eliminating 4 Superstars from the match and tied for all-time record for most Eliminations in a Traditional Survivor Series match.

3. One of the Shortest WWE Title reigns

Roman Reigns may have some notable accolades added to his resume, but one of them may not be something the Tribal Chief may be proud to tell everyone.

At Survivor Series 2015, Reigns reached the top of the mountain winning the WWE World Heavyweight Championship for the first time in his career, only to lose to a Money in the Bank cash-in by Sheamus, setting the record for one of the shortest WWE title reigns at 5 minutes 15 seconds.

4. Wrestlemania Main Events

For every WWE Superstar, the pinnacle of sports entertainment is the main event of their annual premier show, WrestleMania, and ever since Roman Reigns started his run as a singles competitor, he has outlasted almost every Superstar of this generation closing out the Show of Shows on 6 different occasions, two short of the all-time record currently held by the Legendary Hulk Hogan at 8.

However, with The Head of the Table looking to have a long and progressive career still ahead of him, he is most likely looking to break Hogan’s record in the near future.

5. Not pinned since 2019

As mentioned above, Roman Reigns has been on a dominant run since 2020 adopting the Tribal Chief gimmick, and has proven to be unstoppable, wrecking through every WWE Superstar in his path.

Adding to his illustrious list of accolades, Roman Reigns recently surpassed the 1000-day mark without being pinned in a match. The last time Reigns’ shoulders were pinned to the mat was at the TLC premium live event in 2019 in a match against King Corbin who scored the decisive pinfall with the help of Dolph Ziggler and The Revival.
