Reigns recently celebrated reaching 1,000 days as the Universal Champion; he won the gold back at WWE Payback 2020. He also beat Brock Lesnar to win the WWE Championship at WrestleMania 38.
Speaking with Oliver Browning of The Independent, the WWE Hall of Famer praised Reigns’ remarkable reign and called it one of the greatest runs ever. He noted that he likes the way “The Tribal Chief” has had such a long title run.
“He’s doing a phenomenal job. His character, his talent and everything has grown exponentially through this run. It’s arguably one of the greatest runs ever. I like it because it’s such an old school move, to have the title that long.”
The Undertaker then shared his belief that Reigns has to be in the conversation regarding the greatest superstars of all time, though he questioned if he’s in the same boat as Steve Austin and Hulk Hogan.
“He’s got to be in the conversation,” he said. “But do you put him in the same boat as Stone Cold Steve Austin, or Hulk Hogan? I don’t know. Everything’s so subjective when it comes to that.”
“The Phenom” also called Reigns “the man” and stated that it’s not even close. The Undertaker stated that he’s proud of har far Reigns as come, and he noted that he was impressed.
“Reigns has the claim to fame now. He’s the man. I mean, it’s not even close, really. He’s had the title for a thousand days. Business is incredible. He picks his own schedule. He’s got a claim, he’s got an argument. I’m really proud of him for how he’s come. It really has been impressive.”
