You can say this about anyone, but it'd be badass if they had Joe beat Lex Luger's reign as longest reigning US Champion.
I thought Dean Ambrose held that record? He didn't defend like ever, but I'm pretty sure he has the record

I'm all for Dean leaving, he's not good in the ring at all and is very uneven on the mic, sometimes he can be funny and other times he's just dull. Everything he does in the ring looks fake other than that rebound clothesline. I think it's a nice send off to him and also a sort of nice welcome back to Roman for a last run together, it keeps them in 6 man tag matches at live events so Roman doesn't have to do too much at once in long singles matches as well.

So Shield Reunion Part III? Wonder if that means Dean is still leaving. I didn't watch last night, but WWE mentioned it on the broadcast apparently which could mean it's a work? IDK anymore!

Also, I wish I cared about them having a match against The Evil League of Evil. They're going to destroy them in like five seconds on Sunday. Here's hoping for a Reigns heel turn, but I bet if they go that route it'll be Dean again and it sets up a Wrestlemania match between him and Reigns.
Reigns logo on his shirt is in the form of a cancer ribbon. That boy isn't turning heel. They probably will never let him.

He has the longest reign since the US Championship became part of WWE, but Lex Luger is still the guy with the longest reign.

But if you read the actual wwe article they make it clear what numbers they are using and really.... Who cares?

Anyone else here old enough to have been watching wrestling in the 80's? if so who watched WWF and NWA and actually enjoyed NWA more because of the in ring action even with their lower level production values? That doesn't mean I didn't like WWF as well but I always thought NWA had more intense shows due to the action in the ring seeming more realistic.

Nwa was great.

Not old enough to have lived through it, but I've watched quite a bit myself. My take away is that the character work and promo style was way more fun, at least for WWE. Many of the matches are interesting and fun to watch, but I do find myself enjoying modern matches more.

I find too many modern matches just seem like a repeat of the one before it, they also tend to not tell a story as much as just try to get all of their moves in before time runs out. I think a lot of it also has to do with the crowds, crowds back then really played into the show like it was real, now too many people want to be a part of the show and it kills the atmosphere.
