On a recent edition of his “Tuesday with The Taskmaster” podcast, former WCW booker Kevin Sullivan discussed WWE’s booking of Reigns as champion following his latest title defense at Crown Jewel 2023.
Sullivan questioned the continuous interference in Reigns’ title defenses, noting,
“I think Roman has done an incredible job, okay? Incredible. The thing I’m starting to question, and this isn’t me saying they’re not doing the right thing, because they certainly are … do we need interference on every match?”
While Reigns has held the Universal Championship for over 1,100 days thus far, almost all his title defenses in The Bloodline era have been successful courtesy of last-minute interference on the part of his faction.

Roman Reigns, the current Undisputed WWE Universal Champion, recently retained his title against LA Knight with the help of Jimmy Uso at WWE Crown Jewel 2023 in Saudi Arabia. This victory has sparked a discussion among wrestling fans and industry experts about the continuous interference in Reigns’ title defenses.
Former WCW booker Kevin Sullivan shared his thoughts on WWE’s booking of Reigns as champion during a recent episode of his podcast, “Tuesday with The Taskmaster.” While Sullivan acknowledged Reigns’ incredible job as champion, he questioned the need for interference in every match.
Reigns has held the Universal Championship for over 1,100 days, establishing himself as one of the longest-reigning champions in recent history. However, most of his title defenses during The Bloodline era have been successful due to last-minute interference by members of his faction.
While some fans appreciate the storytelling element and the dominance of The Bloodline, others argue that it diminishes the credibility of Reigns’ reign. They believe that Reigns should be able to win matches cleanly without relying on interference.
On the other hand, supporters of WWE’s booking argue that the interference adds an extra layer of drama and excitement to Reigns’ matches. It helps establish The Bloodline as a dominant force in the WWE and creates compelling storylines for future rivalries.
Ultimately, the decision to include interference in Reigns’ matches rests with WWE’s creative team. They carefully craft storylines and character arcs to engage the audience and keep them invested in the product. While some fans may have reservations about the continuous interference, it is evident that Reigns’ character has resonated with many viewers and has become a significant draw for WWE.
As wrestling fans, we can continue to follow Roman Reigns’ journey as Universal Champion and witness how WWE’s booking decisions shape his reign. Whether you support or question the use of interference, one thing is for sure – Roman Reigns is currently one of the most captivating figures in professional wrestling.
