Roman Touts The 'Legitimate' Needle Movement Of Historically Successful SummerSlam

Following the successful “most-viewed” SummerSlam of all time, Roman Reigns is now gloating about being a needle-mover.

WWE issued a press release touting the 2021 SummerSlam event as the most-viewed and highest-grossing SummerSlam event in the 33-year history of the event. Now, Roman Reigns, who headlined the card in a successful title defense against John Cena, has commented on the success of the event touting himself as a needle mover.

This is a play on Roman's recent comments about The Rock and John Cena being legitimate needle movers as opposed to somebody like CM Punk who he says he was never as over as he believed he was. Learn more here.

SummerSlam ended with Roman Reigns being confronted by Brock Lesnar and while neither man is confirmed to appear on Smackdown, recent commercials promised follow-up to that angle.
