When was the last time Reigns lost a match?
Roman Reigns thought his loss at the WWE TLC pay-per-view in 2019 was a significant setback and a hard pill to swallow. Reigns felt certain of his abilities and believed he would defeat Baron Corbin in their Tables, Ladders, and Chairs (TLC) contest. Dolph Ziggler’s interruption caught him by surprise, delaying his plans and allowing Corbin to seize the initiative and clinch the victory with an End of Days.

Reigns’ concerns over the COVID-19 epidemic led him to decide to take a vacation from WWE television after this defeat. During this vacation, he was able to spend much-needed time with his family, pay attention to his health, and get both physical and mental rest.
Throughout his hiatus, Reigns’ dominance in individual encounters persisted unabatedly as he stretched his winning streak to more than three years and solidified his position as one of the top wrestlers in the WWE.
But when Reigns returned to the ring on July 1, 2023, in London, England, he was shocked by yet another defeat. In the much anticipated Bloodline Civil War tag team match, Reigns and Solo Sikoa faced off against The Usos, however, they fell short as Jey Uso won by pinning Reigns. Reigns had not been pinned in three and a half years, thus his defeat was notable because it shocked both him and his fans.
