Roman Reigns has established an unparalleled dominance in WWE, reigning as the Universal Champion for over 1,200 days. The latest buzz suggests that WWE might extend his reign until their monumental event in Germany, scheduled for August 2024.
Today’s announcement reveals that WWE will host “Bash in Berlin” on August 31, possibly paving the way for Gunther to step up and challenge Roman Reigns. Gunther, who ascended to the main roster in 2022, has remained unpinned and is the current Intercontinental Champion. He presents a formidable challenge to Reigns, mirroring his reign’s strength on RAW.
Much like Reigns has The Bloodline, Gunther enjoys the backing of Imperium. This creates a captivating narrative leading into next year’s event, setting the stage for an epic main event clash.
Roman Reigns has held the Universal Title for over 1,149 days, while Gunther has marked his reign as Intercontinental Champion for over 500 days. Should Reigns continue his reign until August, he will surpass Hulk Hogan’s remarkable 1,474-day reign, securing his place as the second-longest-reigning world champion in WWE history.
Roman Reigns’ grip on the title might extend until WWE Bash in Berlin. The Tribal Chief is not anticipated to defend his Undisputed Championship at Survivor Series, providing him with a direct path to the Royal Rumble and WrestleMania. This opens the possibility of a colossal showdown between Reigns and Gunther in Germany.
Should Gunther remain unpinned until then, the bout promises to be a WrestleMania-worthy spectacle, testing Reigns like never before. Imperium’s involvement in the Berlin event is expected to be substantial, and a title match for The Ring General could be the show’s headline act, aligning with the company’s aspirations.
