WWE makes millions of dollars in merchandise sales every year. The merchandise that features the WWE icon or superstar is a favorite among fans worldwide. Fans will be thrilled to buy a watch, tee-shirt, poster or alarm clock that features John Reigns or The Rock.
John Cena is considered one of the most successful WWE superstars. Over the past 20 years, they have sold an enormous amount of merchandise. WWE fans also love trading cards. These cards are collected by young fans and they exchange them with their friends.
Wrestling Observer newsletter announced that a 2022 Panini Black Prizm WWE Trading Card of John Cena, which broke the record for selling at $17100, was sold. This card became the most valuable wrestling trading cards of all time. The previous record was held a card featuring The Rock, which had earned $12 600.
John Cena has passed The Rock despite his absence from WWE. Cody Rhodes is the top merchandise seller in WWE. In AEW the top sellers are FTR, CM Punk and The Elite.
The recent resurgence of pro wrestling fans has been attributed to the return of CM Punk and the storyline of The Bloodline. Many pro-wrestling fans believe that the sport is returning to its glory days of The Attitude Era, and The Ruthless Aggression Era. Each week, the number of fans returning to watch pro wrestling increases.
Fans can take a look at the new professional wrestling era.
Professional wrestling has forever changed since the formation of AEW. For the first time, fans have a choice after almost two decades of WWE monopoly. Other than that, there were many other factors that brought about a new era of professional wrestling not seen since the 90s.
Many WWE fans stopped watching shows when CMPunk quit WWE in 2014. They stopped watching because they didn’t like what they saw on television. Over the following years, the number of fans who left increased due to a shortage of creative storylines. The lack of competition in WWE was the reason for this. But in 2019, and 2020, AEW started to gain popularity. It made WWE improve their product.
The story of The Bloodline, the return of CMPunk to pro wrestling, and Cody Rhodes’s arrival at WWE were all reasons why fans became interested again. The return of Sami Zayn Kevin Owens and the main event at WrestleMania also helped lapsed fans to come back.
