If The Rock is at #1, John Cena has to be there right behind. Although we ‘can’t see’ Cena, his followers love to follow him either way. Cena has 15 million followers on Instagram and about 13 million followers on Twitter!

Interestingly, the ‘Champ’ does not follow anyone from his Instagram account, not even peers. However, he gives a follow-back to almost everyone on Twitter!

Cena has made over 250K users happy with this follow-back gesture. All in all, John Cena’s social media is weird and entertaining at the same time.

‘Rowdy’ Ronda Rousey – 16M+ Instagram/Twitter followers

Ronda Rousey hasn’t wrestled in WWE for two years now, but WWE President Nick Khan is certain the ‘Rowdy’ one will return to the company in the future. Until then, we can all follow Ronda on her social media as she gets ready to becoming a mother!
