John Cena Not The Top Merchandise Seller At WWE Payback

John Cena did not top the individual Superstar merchandise sales at the Payback Premium Live Event.

As reported by Fightful Select, the honour went to Cody Rhodes, who sold the most non-generic merchandise at the event in Pittsburgh with Cena ranking 2nd and LA Knight ranking 3rd. As always, the top sellers overall were Payback and WWE-branded shirts, briefcases and title belts. With sources stating that one replica championship equates to up to 2 dozen shirts, it is unlikely that any Superstar will ever outsell generic stock with their own branded merchandise.

The merch sales for The American Nightmare are even more impressive as Cena recently released new merchandise ahead of his return and announced he would be the guest host at Payback. It is noted that Cena’s merchandise always sells well and does even better after a new drop.

In regards to Knight’s merchandise, the company has made sure that more of his merchandise is available at Live Events due to the rising popularity of the Megastar.

The report concludes with a note about the AEW All In merchandise sales, which states that the “Better than you Baybay” shirt was the top seller at Wembley Stadium.
