Here’s a promo from Cody Rhodes where he talks about breaking pay-per-view buyrate records for Ring of Honor and being the biggest draw in all of professional wrestling:

It’s a promo, and he’s playing a character, so, yeah, take it for that. But a fan wanted to seeing what Roman Reigns would have to say about this and, surprisingly enough, he responded:
I don’t even need to click the link and watch it. If that house didn’t draw over 100K. He’s just talking silly. #WalkOverTalk https://t.co/azQyqDpHUN— Roman Reigns (@WWERomanReigns) October 15, 2017
That’s surely going to lead to fans biting back with comments that Reigns hasn’t drawn that kind of crowd either, and they wouldn’t necessarily be wrong. But it’s a silly argument to have in this context because it’s a character arguing a man. Who will bother to make that distinction? Probably not many, which is how these things get legs.
But, hey, maybe it will become its own social media storyline.
