From his humble beginnings to his reign as the top star in WWE, Reigns’ journey is one of perseverance, talent, and undeniable charisma.

The Early Years of Roman

Roman Reigns, born Leati Joseph Anoa’i into the legendary Anoa’i wrestling family, was destined for greatness from the start. His path to WWE began with a successful collegiate football career, but his destiny awaited him in the squared circle. In 2012, Roman made his WWE debut as part of The Shield, showcasing his immense talent and captivating audiences with his undeniable presence.

Contributions to WWE

Throughout his WWE career, Roman Reigns has left an indelible mark on the industry. From winning multiple world championships to headlining WrestleMania events, Roman has consistently delivered stellar performances that have captured the hearts of fans worldwide. His ability to connect with audiences and deliver memorable moments has solidified his status as one of the top stars in WWE.

As destined, he is currently the longest reigning WWE Undisputed Universal Champion, with a reign of 1,314 days and counting.

Transition to Tribal Chief

Though Reigns was a big name in the industry – and was pushed by WWE to be ‘The Guy’ – he was never accepted by the WWE Universe as the next star. The man was booed most of the time, and little were the instances where he was cheered.

As he mentioned in his documentary of the WWE Legends, his late elder brother had advised him to be what he was and never be the good guy. Only then he could garner the respect that he deserved. With years of hard work and determination, Reigns finally clicked the idea which could make him the most beloved star of all time!

In 2020, Roman Reigns underwent a character transformation that would redefine his career. Embracing his Samoan heritage, Reigns adopted the persona of the Tribal Chief, a dominant and ruthless leader who demanded respect and loyalty from his peers. This transition marked a turning point in Reigns’ career, allowing him to showcase his versatility as a performer and connect with audiences on a deeper level.

Success as the Tribal Chief

Since assuming the role of the Tribal Chief, Roman Reigns has enjoyed unparalleled success in WWE. As the Universal Champion, Reigns has dominated the competition with a combination of brute force and strategic brilliance. His reign of dominance has seen him defeat some of the biggest names in WWE, solidifying his status as the top star in the company.

Formation of the Bloodline

A significant aspect of Reigns’ tenure as the Tribal Chief has been the formation of the Bloodline faction. Aligning himself with his cousins, Jey Uso and Jimmy Uso, Reigns formed a formidable alliance that has dominated WWE’s landscape. The faction later welcomed their Samoan cousin Solo Sikoa and Sami Zayn. And as of now, Sikoa and Jimmy are the only ones left with their leader.

The Bloodline’s unity and strength have been instrumental in Reigns’ success as the Tribal Chief, as they have asserted their dominance over rival factions and established their reign of terror.

Upcoming WrestleMania 40 Match Against Cody Rhodes

As WrestleMania 40 approaches, Reigns finds himself facing a formidable opponent in Cody Rhodes. The match promises to be a clash of titans, with both superstars vying for supremacy in WWE. Reigns will undoubtedly bring his trademark intensity and ferocity to the ring as he looks to assert his dominance and secure victory on the grandest stage of them all.

With Cody aiming to ‘finish his story’, whether Reigns will win is uncertain. But the match has been given an immense build-up and the addition of The Rock and Seth Rollins has increased the stake.

Prediction for the Future

Looking ahead, the future looks bright for Roman Reigns and WWE. With Reigns at the helm, WWE is poised for continued success and global recognition. Reigns’ dominance as the Tribal Chief shows no signs of waning, and he is likely to remain a dominant force in WWE for years to come. As for WrestleMania 40 and beyond, Reigns’ match against Cody Rhodes is sure to be a highlight of the event, and fans can expect fireworks as these two superstars collide.
