This can be best exemplified by how Becky Lynch used her social accounts. Becky saw it as an opportunity to get more traction towards her storylines, which paid off.

If wrestlers know how to utilize social media, they can become stars with a few tweets and posts.

Mark J Burns, a sports journalist, recently shared a list of female athletes around the globe who earned the most followers on Twitter in 2021. The list was topped by Olympic gold medalist Simone Biles.

However, WWE superstars were also on the list and at three different spots. Coming off an incredible year, Charlotte Flair was at the 7th position in the list.

Alexa Bliss has been absent for the last few months, yet she managed to secure the ninth position. At number ten was the Legit Boss and the Blueprint, Sasha Banks.

If we look at the top 20 of the list, rather than just the first ten, you’ll see nine WWE women in the top 20. It just exemplifies how relevant WWE is and how these women have managed to stay at the top constantly over the year.

At 11th position, there’s Liv Morgan, who has pulled ahead of her enemy, Becky Lynch, who is at 15. Bianca Belair stands at 14th position, Mandy Rose at 16th, Bayley is 17th. Finally, Rhea Ripley is in 19th position.

Pulling big numbers on TV and social media as well!

Sasha Banks predicts the winner of the women’s Royal Rumble 2022.

Sasha Banks is one of the top superstars in WWE and will go down as one of the best performers of all time. She has always given back to the business and never complained.

She has accomplished almost everything in her career before 30 and shows no signs of slowing down. However, one thing that is still missing from The Boss’s resume is Royal Rumble.

Banks has never won the Rumble despite putting in some memorable performances. Is it time for Sasha to be rewarded for all she has done for the women’s division?

Well, The Blueprint certainly seems to think that it’s time. On Twitter, WWE posted a picture of her 2021 incredible achievements.
