Four of Roman Reigns’ biggest WWE title wins

Roman Reigns will put his WWE Universal Championship on the line on Saturday night when he takes on John Cena at SummerSlam.

‘The Head of the Table’ has been one of the most dominant champions in the belt’s short history, having held it since August of last year.

In that time, he’s defended it against the likes of Kevin Owens, Cesaro and Edge.

Here’s four of Reigns’ biggest title victories since arriving in the main roster back in 2012:

The Shield v Team Hell No – World Tag Team Championship (Extreme Rules 2013)

Extreme Rules 2013 was one of the biggest night’s of The Shield’s short history to that point.

Dean Ambrose won the United States Championship by defeating Kofi Kingston, before Reigns and Seth Rollins defeated Team Hell No to win the tag team titles.

Rollins hit a top-rope curb stomp on Daniel Bryan, with the help of his tag team partner, before Reigns secured the pin for what was the pair’s first title in WWE.

Roman Reigns v Triple H – WWE World Heavyweight Championship (WrestleMania 32)

Reigns won his third WWE World Heavyweight Championship at WrestleMania 32 against Triple H.

He kicked out of a Pedigree late on in the match, shortly after landing a spear on Stephanie McMahon.

Reigns then hit his opponent with the Superman punch, before again kicking out at two-and-a-half after Triple H reversed the spear.

He then avoided a sledgehammer shot before this time landing the spear for the victory.

Heading into SummerSlam 2018, Brock Lesnar had held the Universal Championship for a total of 504 days.

Reigns ensured that the time didn’t tick over to 505.

Both men traded finishers and reversals in the beginning, but things got more interesting when Lesnar attacked Braun Strowman, who was stood at ringside.

Reigns then got the job done upon Lesnar’s return to the ring with a brutal spear to claim the title.

Roman Reigns v Bray Wyatt v Braun Strowman – WWE Universal Championship (Payback 2020)

After making his return to the WWE in August of last year, Reigns was placed in a triple threat match with Strowman and defending Universal champion Bray Wyatt at Payback.

Reigns, however, didn’t make his entrance until late on in the match, accompanied by Paul Heyman.

After a number of near-falls on both men, the ‘Tribal Chief’ hit a low blow on Wyatt before spearing and pinning Strowman to regain the Universal title.
