Roman Reigns made a comment about CM Punk few months ago back and now he’s cashing in on it. The jab from Reigns found its way onto WWE merchandise, because they can never pass up an opportunity to market something.
The news about CM Punk’s AEW debut broke out in August. At that time, BT Sport’s Ariel Helwani asked Reigns about wrestlers like John Cena and CM Punk, who leave and then come back and get the main event spot effortlessly.
Reigns replied to the question saying that such comments only come from frustrated people. The Head of the Table further said that CM Punk was never in same league as John Cena or The Rock.
“When it comes down to it, CM Punk was not as good or over as John Cena, he wasn’t as good or as over and moved the needle like The Rock. It was what it was. From a full-time performer, I understand the frustration and wanting more but like I said before, you gotta take it. I’m a full-time performer but I’ve done everything that needs to be done to stay in this position, to be in this position, to continue to make the opportunity for myself, to be in the main event at SummerSlam against John Cena.”
Later that month, Matt Riddle told Bleacher Report that he thinks Reigns is not a needle mover either. “Needle Mover” interestingly ruffled some feathers in WWE. Roman’s statement has now made its way in the WWE merchandise business.
The Roman Reigns “Needle Mover” shirts are currently up now in several sizes at WWEShop.com. You can check out the new merchandise below. Apparently, this means WWE’s merchandise team is paying attention.
