WWE Summerslam or Wrestlemania, irrespective of the PPV, one Superstar that will surely be the main attraction of the night is WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns. In fact, Summerslam marks one whole year, since the introduction of The Tribal Chief.
Last year, despite not being a part of the WWE Summerslam card, Roman Reigns stole the show, when he appeared during the final moments of the event. The Fiend was facing Braun Strowman for the Universal Championship, when Reigns appeared in his new Heel avatar.
So far, Reigns has appeared in 5 Summerslam matches, winning on 3 occasions, losing on one and one ending in a no-result. The first of these appearances came way back in 2014, where Reigns defeated Randy Orton.
The next year, Reigns teamed up with Dean Ambrose to face Bray Wyatt and Luke Harper, picking up a win. In 2016, Reigns faced Rusev for the United States Championship, but that ended in a No Result.
In 2017, Brock Lesnar successfully defended his title in a Fatal 4-Way match against Reigns, Strowman and Samoa Joe. His final performance was in 2018, where he defeated Brock Lesnar to become the Universal Champion. But till date, his appearance at Summerslam 2020 remains to be the best one!
