In front of his AEW debut, Roman Reigns publicly insults CM Punk:

 Nearly everything else that occurred in professional wrestling throughout the SummerSlam 2021 weekend appeared to be eclipsed by CM Punk’s AEW debut. Punk’s debut was widely anticipated, although it was never officially announced.

roman reigns kevin owensRoman Reigns‘ remarks before CM Punk’s debut at AEW Rampage are intriguing to consider in light of the event’s past. Reigns were questioned about CM Punk’s prior remarks about him during an interview with Ariel Helwani for BT Sport. He was also questioned about if it was OK for part-timers like John Cena to join and be given a championship opportunity.

Roman Reigns responded by criticizing CM Punk, saying that he can’t generate as much interest as The Rock or John Cena can.

“Those statements are coming from bitter people, you know, who possibly thought they were better than they really were,” said Reigns. “When it comes down to it, CM Punk was not as good or as over as John Cena. [He] wasn’t as good or as over and moved the needle like The Rock. It just wasn’t what it was.”

This led to some debate in the wrestling community. It didn’t help that CM Punk had recently praised Roman Reigns as the finest aspect of WWE:

“I think a lot of times the best stuff, you’ve also kind of just gotta go with the flow with it,” Punk said during an appearance on the Wrestling Perspective Podcast. “I’ll use Roman Reigns as an example, because if we’re talking about good stuff, if the WWE does anything good, I mean, this is the one thing that they’re doing right now, right? Is Roman Reigns.”

In the end, it appears to be a contentious issue. Roman Reigns‘ remarks have generated controversy, yet many contend that they are nonetheless true. The Rock and John Cena are indeed more well-known stars than CM Punk.

Royal Rumble statement from Roman Reigns:

Roman Reigns noted at the Royal Rumble that it wasn’t well received by fans when he returned to WWE for his villainous run as The Tribal Chief.

roman reigns bornRoman Reigns referred to himself as the “most significant Royal Rumble participant ever” in a tweet response to the 2017 Royal Rumble. Only once, in 2015, did he prevail in the Royal Rumble. Almost every year that he has participated in it, Roman Reigns has finished second. Before Batista won in 2014, Reigns finished in second place. He was the second-to-last contestant eliminated in 2016, with Dean Ambrose finishing second to champion Triple H.

Roman Reigns finished second in the 2017 Royal Rumble after Randy Orton knocked him out. He finished second in the same competition in 2018, but Shinsuke Nakamura won. At the 2019 Royal Rumble pay-per-view, Reigns didn’t take part.

Roman Reigns finished second to winner Drew McIntyre in 2020. This demonstrates WWE’s practice of utilizing Reigns to boost the crowd’s enthusiasm for the eventual victor. His #30 Royal Rumble entrance in particular was very contentious, and WWE was aware of this. Even so, the notion that he is the most significant Royal Rumble participant ever did not receive a favorable response from the public.


Roman Reigns net worth estimated is $15 million, and it is predicted that it will increase by 22% per year.
