With over 360 days as champion, Reigns is currently the top title-holder in WWE. Speaking on the latest edition of WWE’s The Bump, The Tribal Chief believes he has elevated the Universal Championship to the level where it is the top title in the company:
“I’ve made the Universal Championship what it is.” Reigns said. “Before I got a hold of it, some would argue that it might have been the second tier WWE Championship, the second-biggest WWE Championship in our company but now what I’ve done with this, especially over the past year- I’ve elevated this to a whole different stratosphere so it is what it is. I put the work in and I made it special and now everybody wants it . . . I think the Universal Championship is just not the number 1 title if the Tribal Chief doesn’t make it what it is and it won’t ever be the same.”
