WWE Backlash, the company’s first dual-branded Pay-Per-View in 2018 (excluding WrestleMania 34) since 2016’s Draft, witnessed a lot of drama, heated rivalries and successful championship defences. However one thing that the co-branded Pay-Per-View event lacked was a match for WWE’s arguably top prize, the WWE Universal Championship.

Brock Lesnar, the most decorated athlete in combat sports, who in the words of his Advocate, Paul Heyman, is the “reigning, defending, undisputed, Universal Heavyweight Champion”, is set to break former WWE Champion, CM Punk’s historic title reign of the Modern Era. As of May 7, 2018, Lesnar has held the Universal Championship for 400 days straight with his next title defence scheduled at WWE Money In The Bank on June 17, 2018.

With just 41 days left for WWE’s next Pay-Per-View event, Lesnar will walk into his next title defence reigning for 441 days and effectively beating CM Punk’s whopping 434 days record WWE Championship reign by default. It is to be noted that (as of this writing), Punk had defended the WWE Championship 22 times whereas Brock has ranked up only 6 defences. It is very unlikely that Brock will lose the title at WWE live events/house shows leading up to Money In The Bank, 2018.

Lesnar’s Universal Championship reign kicked off after The Beast won the title at WrestleMania 33 by defeating former Universal Champion, Bill Goldberg and hasn’t dropped it since. Punk’s record championship reign began at Survivor Series 2011, where he defeated Alberto Del Rio. Punk reigned as champion throughout 2012 before finally dropping it to The Rock in January, 2013 at the Royal Rumble Pay-Per-View.
