Roman Reigns, the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion, has made his much-anticipated return to the wrestling ring. After his victory over Jey Uso at SummerSlam on August 6, 2023, Reigns had been absent from the WWE scene. However, he recently made his comeback on WWE SmackDown, leaving a lasting impression on the fans.

The show concluded with Reigns standing tall over LA Knight, despite being met with a chorus of boos from the capacity crowd. The Tribal Chief’s dominance and arrogance were evident as he asserted his authority in the ring.

In his first match since his return, Roman Reigns faced his former rival Sami Zayn at a live event in Kansas City. The crowd favorite was unfortunately defeated by The Tribal Chief, with The Bloodline’s interference playing a crucial role in Reigns’ victory. It seems that Reigns has set his sights on LA Knight, who was on the receiving end of a vicious attack on SmackDown. It is highly likely that these two wrestlers will lock horns in the near future, promising an intense showdown.

The Universal title has been in Roman Reigns’ possession for an astonishing 1,140+ days, highlighting his exceptional reign as the top champion in WWE. He also secured the WWE title by defeating Brock Lesnar at last year’s WrestleMania. Reigns’ dominance shows no signs of waning, as he continues to vanquish every opponent who stands in his way.

In 2023, The Bloodline faced internal turmoil with Jey Uso’s departure from the stable to pursue a solo career. However, the faction remains strong and united on WWE SmackDown. With Roman Reigns leading The Bloodline, it is evident that he will do whatever it takes to maintain his status as the undisputed champion.

While Reigns currently reigns supreme, only time will tell if anyone on the WWE roster possesses the capability to dethrone him. It remains to be seen if a formidable challenger will arise and put an end to Reigns’ dominance in the ring.
