5 WWE Superstars who defeated Roman Reigns clean
Roman Reigns is one of the biggest superstars WWE has produced in the last ten years. He was positioned as the next John Cena to become the face of the company. Roman Reigns main-evented four WrestleManias in a row, which is a feat surpassed only by the immortal Hulk Hogan.
Roman Reigns' unfortunate break due to his illness has definitely put the plans to make him the face on hold, but does not diminish the success he achieved on the main roster. Very few superstars hold the status of defeating Reigns without any shenanigans.
Roman Reigns main-evented four WrestleManias, and won just two of them, but his presence did leave a mark on WWE history. We never know when and if Reigns will ever come back to the WWE ring, but he has already carved a fine legacy for himself in six years.
We look at five superstars who hold the rare privilege of defeating Roman Reigns clean.
#5 Brock Lesnar
Is this a surprise?
Brock Lesnar defeated the likes of Rock, Hulk Hogan, and Goldberg in his very first year in WWE. He went on to end Undertaker's legendary streak at WrestleMania 30, and defeated John Cena in a never seen before manner at SummerSlam 2014.
Brock Lesnar has defeated Roman Reigns quite a few times in his quest for the Universal title, but the biggest blow came during the WrestleMania main-event this year. Nobody predicted a win for Lesnar, but The Beast came out on top to retain his title against Reigns.
Lesnar also defeated Reigns at SummerSlam last year, in a match which featured Samoa Joe and Braun Strowman as well.
Roman Reigns defeated The Beast to exact revenge at SummerSlam, and finally capture the WWE Universal Championship, which he had to sadly forfeit few weeks later.
