The WWE landscape finds itself surrounded by the Island of Relevancy, with Roman Reigns sitting atop the mountain as the Ultimate Ruler. The Tribal Chief has been on a path of domination ever since he made his return to WWE at SummerSlam in 2020 under a completely new and aggressive personality that the fans had never seen before.

The Head of the Table is inching close to being the Undisputed WWE Universal champion for 1000 days, decimating some of the biggest names in the industry on his road to becoming the 5th longest-reigning world champion of all time. The list includes superstars like John Cena, Brock Lesnar, Edge, Drew McIntyre, and most recently Cody Rhodes at WrestleMania 39.

With Reigns walking out of every major title bout as the victor, courtesy of major assistance from The Bloodline at times, this has left the fans wondering who could possibly step up and dethrone the Tribal Chief for good measure once and for all.
5 Bron Breakker Pulls Up The Upset Win
While every major talent on the main roster has failed to defeat Roman Reigns for the Undisputed title, the fans might want to turn their attention toward the emerging prospects in WWE NXT to look for a new challenger. That being said, one of the most credible and rising talents who could dethrone Reigns for the title in the future is Bron Breakker.
The former two-time NXT champion has been truly remarkable during his run in WWE’s developmental territory. Breakker has proved himself to be a top prospect for WWE due to his amazing strength and in-ring acumen, proudly carrying on the legacy of his father and uncle, Rick and Scott Steiner. The clash between two generational athletes in Reigns and Breakker could be a top-rated contest and possibly see Bron doing the impossible of ending Roman’s three-year monster push in a huge shocker.
Moreover, this could see the story of a rookie Brock Lesnar recreated, who became a world champion in his debut year on the main roster defeating the top champion at the time, coincidentally being Reigns’ cousin, The Rock.
4 Gunther Vanquishes Roman Reigns’ Title Reign
The Ring General Gunther has been an exceptional talent right from his days in NXT UK. The current and longest-reigning WWE Intercontinental champion has proved himself to be a major asset to the company with his incredible title run and in-ring performances.
Moreover, his stature and in-ring ability have perceived him to be a mega star in the future. WWE could take this opportunity to book a mega clash between Gunther and Roman Reigns for both their titles, similar to the classic showdown between Hulk Hogan and the Ultimate Warrior at WrestleMania VI. The instant classic bout between two of the most talented WWE superstars at a stage like WrestleMania could see the end of Roman’s lengthy title run at the hands of the leader of the Imperium in one of the most hard-hitting matches of all time.
3 Randy Orton Strikes With A Viper Assault
Ever since Roman Reigns donned the gimmick of the Tribal Chief in 2020, he has battled against every major WWE superstar and legend except for The Viper, Randy Orton. Fans might remember that Orton was Reigns’ very first top opponent in 2014 at SummerSlam when he began his run as a singles competitor.
Furthermore, Randy Orton has been on the sidelines since May 2022 with speculations running rapid that the former 14-time World champion was close to returning to the ring. Orton’s grand comeback to see him standing across the Tribal Chief and become the one to knock him off his pedestal and end his historic title reign, adding one of the most impressive accolades to his Hall of Fame-worthy resume.
2 Solo Sikoa- The Man Who Preserved Roman Reigns’ Title Reign
The Street champion and Bloodline member Solo Sikoa has been the savior every time Roman Reigns was close to losing his championships. This could possibly mean that Reigns does not know how to survive high-pressure situations without his Enforcer. Furthermore, a later stage could see Solo Sikoa being frustrated with taking marching orders from the Head of the Table and reminding him of the real reason why he is still champion.
The dominant and dangerous Sikoa could then go on to challenge his cousin at a major show like SummerSlam or WrestleMania and do the unthinkable by ending what he had preserved for the longest time, Roman Reigns’ title reign.
1 Seth “Freakin” Rollins Has Always Outshined Reigns When It Mattered
The one man who has outshined Roman Reigns during high-stakes situations has only been his former Shield cohort, Seth Rollins. The Drip God’s first world title reign came at the expense of stealing Roman Reigns’ moment at WrestleMania 31. Rollins came back from injury in 2016 and defeated Reigns at that year’s Money in the Bank pay-per-view to win back the WWE title he did not lose in the first place.
Furthermore, Seth Rollins even ended up in the winning column during their highly stakes title match at the 2022 Royal Rumble event after Reigns got himself disqualified. Therefore, Seth “Freakin” Rollins stands at the top of the list to be one who could end the nearly three-year-long title run of perhaps the greatest WWE superstar of the modern era and his counterpart, Roman Reigns.
