The Rock, John Cena: WWE stars with the most Instagram followers as Logan Paul joins

The ten WWE stars with the most Instagram followers

In news that not many people saw coming, Logan Paul became a WWE Superstar today after signing an official contract with the wrestling giant.

This is a big coup for WWE, as particularly amongst younger viewers due to his following on YouTube, Logan is one of the most recognisable people to ever work in wrestling.

So, that got us thinking, who is the most followed WWE Superstar on social media, and is it Logan Paul?

The answer is yes (kind of), but more on that later. So, without further ado, let’s jump right into looking at the ten WWE Superstars with the most followers on Instagram.


10. Alexa Bliss

There’s no point denying just how popular Alexa Bliss is. At this stage, it really is hard to deny.

The former Raw Women’s Champion is one of the most followed WWE stars on social media, with Bliss having an incredibly loyal fanbase.

She’s also huge merch seller too, again showing just how popular she is, with it being believed that she ranks right at the top of the company for merchandise sales.

With all that in account, it’s not too surprising that WWE has kept Bliss as a top star for all these years, really since her main roster debut in 2016.


9. Roman Reigns

It wouldn’t be a ‘top ten’ list featuring WWE Superstars if Roman Reigns didn’t feature, would it?

Roman Reigns is WWE’s top star right now, and his following on social media is certainly one of the reasons WWE has put him in that slot.

Reigns will be looking to add to his 6.3m as he continues on this historic run with WWE, and if a rumoured run in Hollywood comes to fruition, his following will likely skyrocket.


8. Randy Orton

Instagram was created in 2010, and by that point, Randy Orton had already been in WWE for over eight years.

Orton is one of WWE’s longest-serving stars on the active roster, and this year, cemented himself as arguably the wrestling giant’s most popular figure.

What makes Orton’s following on Instagram even more impressive is the fact that the multi-time WWE Champion barely ever posts.


7. Triple H

Also with 6.5m followers on Instagram is one of Randy Orton’s most recognisable rivals, Triple H.

The former WWE Superstar and now behind-the-scenes Executive is one of WWE’s biggest ever stars, and he’s got the social media following to back that up.

As his power in WWE grows, as it reportedly is doing right now, expect his Instagram follower count to shoot right up too.


6 and 5. Nikki and Brie Bella

The Bella Twins are, without doubt, the two most famous female Superstars to ever work for WWE (excluding the next entry onto this list).

The pair have enjoyed a lot of success outside of WWE, whether its through their business ventures or as part of their reality show, Total Bellas.

Credit to them too, as they’ve probably outgrown WWE and built a real brand for themselves outside of the company.


4. Ronda Rousey

That next entry is Ronda Rousey, who has amassed over 15.5m followers thanks to her time competing in Judo for the US in the Olympics, fighting in the UFC, and working with WWE.

Rousey really has done it all when it comes to combat, and the fact she’s mastered three different fields is probably why she’s got the following she does.

With an impressive amount of followers (nearly triple the next top active female WWE star), it’s not surprising that Vince McMahon wanted her back in 2022.


3. John Cena

John Cena made his name in WWE, becoming the company’s top star pretty much from 2005 until he left for Hollywood in 2017.

It was that move to Hollywood that made him much more recognisable though, and now he’s featured in some of the world’s biggest movies and TV series.

Cena has reiterated that WWE is his home though, and with a following like he’s got, that’ll be music to the ears of Vince McMahon.


2. Logan Paul

When you see Logan come in right at the top of this list, it’s no wonder that WWE wanted to sign him to a full-time contract.

Paul is one of the world’s most recognisable names, particularly amongst younger views, and it’s for that reason, coupled with his athleticism and charisma, that WWE has signed him.

He’s also the WWE Superstar on the active roster with the most followers on Instagram, only being topped by…


1. The Rock

The Rock is not only the most famous person to have ever wrestler for WWE, but he’s arguably one of the most famous people on the planet.

Starring in all of the biggest movies in the world, almost everyone you meet will know who The Rock is, so it’s not surprising to see him ranked at number one on this list.

He isn’t an active WWE star, and while he hasn’t worked a match since 2016, he’s still part of the WWE family so has to be included in this list.
