LA Knight Tops New List Of Top WWE Merch Sellers In September, Eclipsing John Cena
Professional wrestler LA Knight is making waves in the world of WWE merchandise sales. According to estimates from Wrestlenomics, Knight’s products have consistently appeared in the daily top-10 rankings on WWE’s online shop. In fact, his black “YEAH” shirt spent an impressive 30 days on the top-10 list, surpassing the sales of well-known talents like John Cena, Cody Rhodes, and WWE Hall of Famer “Stone Cold” Steve Austin.
The study conducted by Wrestlenomics focused solely on the traffic generated by Knight and his “YEAH” shirt, and could not account for the actual volume of sales. However, the fact that Knight consistently ranked highly on the list suggests a significant level of popularity among WWE fans.
Last month, reports surfaced that Knight was due for a major push in the WWE. This prediction came true when he ended up defeating John Cena at WWE Payback. The wrestler’s popularity was further solidified when he teamed up with Cena again at WWE Fastlane, where they faced Solo Sikoa and Jimmy Uso. Despite testing positive for COVID-19 before the event, Knight made a swift recovery and showed his resilience.
Knight’s success and high regard within WWE management is evident through his interactions with Cena and the upcoming match, as well as his victory in the SummerSlam Battle Royal. Additionally, Knight has become the face of WWE’s lucrative partnership with Slim Jim, further showcasing his value to the company.
Rumors are circulating that Knight is currently in negotiations to renew his contract, despite his existing contract reportedly running until 2025. This indicates that WWE recognizes his potential and wants to secure his talent for the long term.
With his impressive merchandise sales and continued success in the WWE, LA Knight is proving himself to be a rising star in the world of professional wrestling. Fans can expect to see more from him in the future as he continues to make an impact both in and out of the ring.
