Another Sign Of LA Knight’s Growing WWE Popularity Revealed WWE

As if WWE needed any further indication that LA Knight is indeed a top star in waiting, the latest merchandise sales for the month of June may just spell it out for them.

Knight was ranked among the top sellers of the month according to data from Wrestlenomics.

Amazingly, the mega star only fell behind the company’s consistent top merch movers Roman Reigns, Cody Rhodes and Stone Cold Steve Austin for the month of June.

In specific items, Knight’s shirt was second for the month, only to Rhea Ripley’s.

Dave Meltzer wrote in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter:

According to Wrestlenomics, the top five merch draws in the month of June were Reigns, Rhodes, Austin, Knight and nWO.

Eddy Guerrero was No. 7 and John Cena was No. 10.

The top actual items were: 1. Ripley She’s My Mami t-shirt; 2. LA Knight T-shirt; 3. WCW Bash at the Beach tank top; 4. Bloodline We the Ones T-shirt; 5. NWO T-shirt

WWE has recently been forced to acknowledge the swell of support building for the SmackDown star including his incredible crowd response in the O2 Arena.

After LA Knight didn’t win the Money in the Bank match, Chief Content Officer Triple H did suggest that this was just the beginning for Knight’s ascent in WWE.

Knight does not as of yet have any confirmed SummerSlam plans, however a new major match seems to be on WWE’s list for the biggest party of the summer, click here to find out more.
