Roman Reigns Takes Another Dig At CM Punk, AEW Star Defends Punk's Drawing Power

When the ratings for AEW Rampage: The First Dance came in and actually scored higher than the SummerSlam "go-home" episode of Friday Night SmackDown on FOX in several key demos, Roman Reigns' "needle-mover" comments about CM Punk did not age very well.

Regardless, that hasn't stopped "The Head of the Table" for reiterating the sentiment when responding to a tweet from WWE touting the business success of WWE SummerSlam 2021.

Reigns wrote in a reply to the aforementioned tweet, "Legitimate needle moving."

Chavo Guerrero Jr., an AEW talent, also chimed in on Twitter to bring up the "needle mover" Reigns quote in a tweet that he shared soon-after the Rampage ratings surfaced.

"I gotta say that CM Punk may have moved the needle a little last night for AEW."

Check out the pair of tweets below.
