The mania mains are so funny. Even when he wasn't fighting for the title he still main evented


axb2002

To be fair, that WrestleMania main event was supposed to be Undertakers last match. But then Taker came back and so it is pretty weird looking back at it now.


Randomd0g

It's a good thing that Shawn Michaels retirement match at Mania actually was his last match. Really glad he never came back for a nostalgia pop. **ahem.**


RedLightning4Ever

It wasn’t for nostalgia pop, it was for that sweet sweet Saudi money


ScrubNerd

*Blood money


Satinsbestfriend

IiRC it was $3 million


RedLightning4Ever

3 million a person or in total?


Satinsbestfriend

Don't know who got what but it was said SHAWN got $3 million alone. Even if each got that (12 million), I believe WWE are getting $50 million plus per show


Liverpool510

I’d believe that. I think Jericho even said him going to that first Saudi show and being in the 50 man royal rumble was the biggest single match payday of his career.


MukwiththeBuck

The ending was what redeemed that main event from being awful, only for it to be ruined a year later. At least HBK let his main event retirement last 8 years


LukeVoight5021

3 more Mania main events and tie with Hogan


Veggieleezy

Don't worry, he'll get there, whether we like it or not.


cartrman

We were all focused on Bruno's record. This entire time he was working on breaking Hogan's record 👀


Satinsbestfriend

38, looses belt to rumble winner 39 vs Rock 40 vs Seth vs Dean (you never know)


cma001

WWE is booking themselves into a corner


thatguyad

They did it with Brock, they'll keep doing it with Roman.


gorgeoff

Sure, but is he looking strong enough?!?


EliteWaltz

Someone has to, there’s no one left.


nachoiskerka

Yeah! We literally have no one left because we destroyed the mystique of every other main eventer by having roman beat them! So we **have** to go with Roman. Sigh. One day ill find an alternate timeline where they just let The Demon win that big return match. But not today. Today we just Roman. And tomorrow. And yesterday. And every day with a Y at the end....


Bauermeister

But don’t you understand? Roman looks so strong now.


krak_is_bad

Roman will reign until the morale improves.


Swarlolz

I really loved watching Drew claymore kick people into the next century


Getdunkled

Studying Roman’s statistics officially more entertaining than watching the product he’s a part of.


adsfew

As a *rough* estimate, if there have been seven years of PPVs since the split and 12 PPVs per year, that's \~84 PPVs. 37/84 = 44% of PPVs in this period, not counting the time he had to take off for health reasons. The Shield split after the 2014 WM/WM XXX, so 5/7 = 71% of WrestleManias.


Getdunkled

This guy maths.


Darshan-Raj

But what is the percentage chance of Big Bad Booty Daddy winning at sackerface though?


randomsportsdude

Lol, maybe for you and your friend Mark.


Getdunkled

When you’ve never seen a joke before.


heat_fan_

Talk about getting pushed to the moon


cma001

Nah dude, the moon has seemingly been brought to him


Samwellpeeps

I can't remember the stats exactly (hopefully someone else can) but after the shield split there was a LONG streak of every PPV only ever being main evented by a shield member or Brock.


krak_is_bad

The two mania mains he missed were: WM35, where he returned from his cancer battle a little over a month before. He wrestled Drew. WM36, which he was pulled from due to COVID concerns. He was supposed to face Goldberg for the Universal.


Satinsbestfriend

At this rate he'll probably main event 38, loosing (one can hope) his title finally. Probably to a part timer I joke, nervously


LnStrngr

Weakest link of The Shield, and the one WWE pushes to the moon.


Darshan-Raj

I still feel Dean should've been the breakout star of the group. He was a legit badass and was also cool! Seth would've been great as well, but Roman had the BEEF!


randomsportsdude

Lmao, good thing you're not a booker.


LnStrngr

I know, right? Vince would have fired me for not being a "yes" man.


randomsportsdude

Well, trying to bury the biggest star and money maker of three is pretty incompetent, so it'd be justified.


igotdryeye

"Biggest money maker" They strapped not just a rocket but a WMD to his back for five years and he couldn't get over with the crowd


NewRoryAndMalDrop

????????


1sxekid

This run totally rejuvenated him but now the same issues as before are creeping in. I still like this version of Roman but he needs to take an L soon. Even just him being pinned in a tag match then being insecure would do wonders.


ThatWrestlingGuy15

That’s a lot


coalman1996

Not all of those were enjoyed by the fans mind you. The greatest thing WWE did was let Roman be the natural heel he is.


PM_Me_PAAG_Pics

Breaking news: Main eventer main events.

☝️☝️☝️ GOAT ☝️☝️☝️


LionBastard1

Roman Reigns is more over than Madcap Moss. Edit: I didn't know Madcap Moss was that popular.


doffyxyz

Wat about Cena?


sdixon90

Lol


Dalee323

WOOO-AHHH!!!
