Roman Reigns’ last singles defeat in WWE came in December 2019 when he was defeated by Baron Corbin. However, things have worked out very differently for both stars since then.
The Tribal Chief is currently in the midst of one of the most dominant title reigns in history, while Corbin has been a victim of inconsistent booking. However, a recent incident on RAW led many fans to believe that things could soon turn around for the Modern-Day Wrestling God.
Corbin was reintroduced as the Modern-Day Wrestling God in October last year and was paired with JBL. While he initially went on to win a series of matches, the 38-year-old has been on a losing streak of late. His alliance with JBL ended on this week’s RAW after he lost his match against Johnny Gargano. The Hall of Famer also had a few harsh words for the former NXT star before they parted ways.
The incident left fans wondering what’s next for the 38-year-old. Many speculated that this could lead to the return of Corbin’s old gimmick of ‘The Lone Wolf.’

Roman Reigns has been unstoppable in WWE since his loss to Baron Corbin
Roman Reigns has been at the top of WWE’s food chain ever since returning as a heel in 2020. The Tribal Chief did not take long to capture the Universal Championship and has held on to the title ever since.
Reigns added another feather to his cap as he defeated Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 38 to become the first-ever Undisputed WWE Universal Champion. The SmackDown star has also not been pinned in over three years, with Baron Corbin being the last wrestler to hand him a Non-DQ loss.
The Head of the Table has taken down a plethora of stars on his way to the top. He is currently embroiled in a feud with Sami Zayn on SmackDown. The duo will face off for the world title at Elimination Chamber.

Roman Reigns will also have to keep a close eye on Cody Rhodes, who punched his ticket to the main event of WrestleMania after winning the Royal Rumble. However, with The Bloodline by his side, both Sami and Cody will have their tasks cut out at the upcoming premium live events.
