Baron Corbin’s big boast on WWE Raw about Roman Reigns is true

Roman Reigns has been a seemingly indomitable force in WWE since re-emerging in the summer of 2020. Since his return, he hasn’t been pinned. Although he suffered losses in tag team action and disqualification, no one was able to pin the undisputed WWE Universal Champion.

On the Jan. 9 episode of “WWE Raw,” Baron Corbin bragged about being the latest man to pin Reigns. And, it is absolutely true. Over two years ago, at TLC’s penultimate premium live event, Corbin pinned Reigns in a Tables Ladders & Chairs match. All this time ago, Reigns was a face in the middle of a feud with Corbin who was the reigning king of the ring at the time. The feud itself was widely criticized and featured an infamous segment where Corbin and Dolph Ziggler chained Reigns up and covered him in dog food.

Unlike his match against Reigns years ago, Corbin came up short against Kevin Owens on Monday night’s “Raw.” Speaking of Owens, his week isn’t over. On Friday’s SmackDown, Owens will face Sami Zayn. Reigns made the match last Friday on “SmackDown,” for Zayn to prove his allegiance to Reigns and The Bloodline.

A week earlier, Reigns and Zayn lost in a tag team match to Owens and John Cena. The match was Cena’s only WWE match of 2022 and ended Reigns’ year with a second loss. Reigns’ first match of 2022 was against Seth Rollins at the Royal Rumble event where he was disqualified.
