A new study has claimed that Logan Paul sits just behind Dwayne Johnson and John Cena as the third-most influential wrestler on the planet.
The research conducted by wrestling-world.com “analysed social media followings, Wikipedia page views, and Google search volumes” of current and former wrestlers.
The top spot was taken by Dwayne Johnson who it was noted had “far away the largest social media following” of anyone on the list. John Cena slotted into second place ahead of Logan Paul.
Paul’s inclusion is sure to spark debate given that he is a part-time star who has only competed in five matches in his entire career. However, the star found fame on YouTube and has a monster social media following with 6.8 million followers on Twitter alone.
Some press releases to the news room stand out more than others… for obvious reasons.

When Did Logan Paul Last Wrestle For WWE?
Logan Paul made his most recent appearance for WWE at WrestleMania 39 where he was defeated by Seth Rollins on night one of the spectacular. Ahead of the event, the star revealed that his contract with WWE was ending, although he has since signed a new “multi-year” deal.
Paul took his first steps into WWE in 2021 before competing at WrestleMania 38 alongside The Miz as they took on the Mysterios. The star went on to beat The Miz at SummerSlam before challenging Roman Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Title at Crown Jewel. He followed this up with an appearance in the 2023 men’s Royal Rumble match which sparked his feud with Rollins.
Speaking on a recent episode of his podcast, Paul said that he has no intention of wrestling in WWE full-time.
