Brock Lesnar prepares to go inside the steel cage at the Greatest Royal Rumble

As of May 15, 2018, Brock Lesnar has held the WWE Championship for 408 days. That's nearly 10,000 hours, over half a million minutes, and over 35 million seconds.

Lesnar is fast approaching the modern-day World Championship Reign within the WWE held by CM Punk, who held the WWE Championship for 434 days from November 2011 to January 2013.

Many within the WWE Universe have soured on Lesnar's reign compared to CM Punk's because of the fact that Lesnar is a part-time wrestler who has barely defended the WWE Universal Championship when compared to Punk. Take a look at that comparison below:

The comparison of title defenses between CM Punk and Brock Lesnar

Lesnar last defended the WWE Universal Championship on April 27th at the Greatest Royal Rumble in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

Though replay showed Roman Reigns won the steel cage match by the defined rules, referee Chad Patton made a mistake in naming Lesnar the winner of the match.

With WWE Money In The Bank being the earliest that Brock Lesnar will probably defend the WWE Universal Championship, it seems very likely that he will pass CM Punk for the longest modern World Championship reign in the WWE.

This article is going to look at five WWE Superstars who deserve to take the Championship off Lesnar. Considering Lesnar has held the title for so long, it will be a major moment for the WWE Superstar who does conquer The Beast.

Let's start this list with someone that should be the WWE Universal Champion right now.


#5 - Roman Reigns

Roman Rei
Roman Reigns calls himself the uncrowned WWE Universal Champion, for good reason...

I know... I know. This will not be the popular pick among the masses who love to boo Roman Reigns, but there are several reasons why he should take the Championship from Brock Lesnar.

Not only is Roman the leader of the locker room, he has worked hard to continuously improve in the ring. Roman has been involved in several great matches, but since he's not optimally booked, many fans decide to boo him.

Roman's dedication and respect for the WWE coupled with his ability makes him an easy choice to dethrone Lesnar.
