Roman Reigns is not short of an accolade or two but he has one more to add to his list after being named as wrestling’s top draw for 2022.
Roman Reigns has continued his dominant run as The Head of The Table and the top star on SmackDown in 2022, becoming Undisputed WWE Universal Champion when he defeated Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 38. Reigns is fast approaching 900 days as Universal Champion and there has been nobody in WWE that can stop him thus far.
In a recent edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Roman Reigns was named as the biggest draw in the entire wrestling business for the second year in a row. It is the fifth time overall that Reigns has topped this lucrative chart. As well as 2021, Roman Reigns topped that particular list in 2016, 2017, and 2018.
Roman Reigns still has some way to go to match the longevity of the drawing power of John Cena with Cena named as top draw on seven occasions in his iconic career. Cena is 10th on the Observer’s all-time top draw list with Reigns occupying 12th position. Top of the list is ‘The Golden Greek’ Jim Londos whose halcyon days were during the 1930s and 40s. Londos is placed ahead of Bruno Sammartino, Lou Thesz, Bill Longson, and Hulk Hogan.
Roman Reigns will hope to add to his ever-growing legacy by becoming the first man to successfully a world title in three consecutive WrestleMania main events when the event ‘goes Hollywood’ in April.
