WWE Superstar Roman Reigns Predicts San Francisco 49ers as Top Super Bowl Contenders

Before his highly anticipated Undisputed WWE Universal Championship Match at Summer Slam in Detroit on Saturday evening, Roman Reigns made a special appearance on ESPN’s First Take alongside Stephen A. Smith. As a dedicated fan of the San Francisco 49ers, Reigns took the opportunity to share his Super Bowl prediction for his favorite NFL team.

During his appearance on First Take, Reigns, also known as “The Tribal Chief,” revealed his top-five Super Bowl contenders for the upcoming NFL season. Topping his list were the San Francisco 49ers, whom Reigns credited for their formidable defense.

Reigns confidently stated, “49ers all the way. It starts with the defense. If you can stop the run, you put the offense in a long third-down situation, and that’s a formula for success every single time. The defense is always there, we run the ball, we have weapons, it’s really just about figuring out the quarterback position, but we have a lot of talent there. I’m really expecting huge things — Super Bowl. Flirting with it for a while now, and I think this is the year.”

In addition to the 49ers, Reigns listed the defending Super Bowl champions, the Kansas City Chiefs, at No. 2 on his list. The Philadelphia Eagles secured the No. 3 spot, followed by the Cincinnati Bengals and the Buffalo Bills to round out Reigns’ top five contenders.

Prior to his successful wrestling career with WWE, Reigns played as a defensive lineman in the ACC for the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets. His background in football contributes to his insightful analysis and predictions.


While Reigns’ appearance on First Take showcased his Super Bowl predictions, his focus remains on his upcoming match at WWE’s Summer Slam. The event, set to take place at Ford Field in Detroit, Michigan, will feature Reigns facing off against Jey Uso in the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship Match.
