Last year, ‘The Big Dog’ returned after a four-month hiatus due to the Covid-19 pandemic. And within two months of his resurgence, he was already back at the elite level. At Payback, he defeated Bray Wyatt and Braun Strowman in a Triple Threat Match to win the Universal Championship.
What has Roman Reigns achieved in WWE?
Aside from winning numerous world title belts, he has also held the WWE Tag Team Championship and the United States Championship. Reigns also won the 2015 Royal Rumble after his cousin, The Rock, rushed to his aid to help him fend off The Big Show and Kane.
In addition, he was named the Superstar of the Year in 2014 and has headlined WrestleMania on three separate occasions. At the 2017 event, he defeated all-time great, The Undertaker, in an incredible war of attrition.
However, since returning last year, Reigns has looked even better than ever before. He aligned with notorious manager Paul Heyman – his new special counsel. The American has turned heel, and in a shocking turn of events, he began a feud with his own cousin, Jey Uso.
In a terrifying beatdown, he forced his opponent’s brother, Jimmy, to throw the towel in to save him from further punishment.
Following his victory, the 36-year-old has beaten every man put in front of him. Not only did he manage to defeat Kevin Owens in an iconic Last Man Standing match at the Royal Rumble, but he also emerged victorious in title matches against the likes of Edge, Rey Mysterio, John Cena and Finn Balor.
It seemed the partnership between Reigns and Heyman was working perfectly. But when his manager’s ex-client, Brock Lesnar, decided to return to the WWE, the relationship went sour.
‘The Big Dog’ is now at loggerheads with ‘The Beast Incarnate’, and even though they couldn’t do battle at the Day 1 PPV due to Reigns testing positive for Covid-19, fans are still eagerly anticipating a potential future clash between the two world champions.
But just how much money has Reigns made?
What is the net worth of Roman Reigns?
It’s no surprise that the American has managed to make a fortune throughout his remarkable life. Celebrity Net Worth estimates that he has created a whopping $12million valuation of himself.
According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter‘s Dave Meltzer, Reigns makes more than $5 million annually as part of his WWE contract.
Roman Reigns has become a massive global star throughout his time in the WWE and has established himself as perhaps the most impactful wrestler of his generation.
