Konnan recently gave his take on Dave Meltzer's tweet, in which the journalist picked AEW's CM Punk, the most influential wrestler of 2021, and called it a "non-debatable topic."

While speaking on the Keepin It 100 podcast, the wrestling veteran stated that The Straight Edge Superstar was more influential than Roman Reigns for a night or a month, considering the hype surrounding his long-awaited wrestling return.

However, Konnan named The Tribal Chief as his overall pick this year, as the WWE star has helped bring more eyeballs to the product and created an aura around his new gimmick that could only a megastar like The Rock can defeat:

"I think that for one night or one month, CM Punk was (more influential than Roman Reigns). But look at the whole year what Roman has been able to do, increase ratings, increase buzz, you know, maintain a great storyline for over a year with different guys, get an aura about him that only the Rock's probably gonna defeat. I mean, I think he's been way more influential," Konnan noted.

I see a lot of people indulge in comparing CM Punk and Roman Reigns. Man have some common sense,Punk ruled the industry way before Roman so respect Punk and enjoy what Roman is doing. And also Punk did a lot more than what your so called favourite can think of.

There's no doubt that Punk and Reigns are two of the biggest box-office attractions in pro wrestling today. But one would agree with Konnan's statement, as the former Shield member has elevated himself to a whole new level.

Meanwhile, AEW's Punk has been a part of an underwhelming booking, which might have diminished the hype that generated when he came back.
