Shocking New Study Reveals Louisiana’s Favorite Active WWE Star
Louisiana is a huge pro wrestling hotbed. Shreveport was the home of Mid-South Wrestling, New Orleans has hosted multiple WrestleMania events, and multiple Louisiana natives have held championships in various promotions. Not to mention WWE Hall of Fame member Ernie Ladd is from Rayville, Louisiana.
To this day, Louisiana remains a major wrestling state. The fans here really know their wrestling, and the history of the sport.
So when a survey says they have researched something about Louisiana wrestling fans, you know you have something there. Which is exactly what Wrestling-World.com has put together. They've analyzed Google data cross-referenced with the current WWE roster to come up with the Most Popular WWE Wrestler In Every State.
A lot of what was revealed is interesting...
The #1 WWE superstar on the list was Edge. The WWE Hall of Famer was the most popular in 32 total states. No other wrestler on the list was the most popular in more than 8 states. The Rated R Superstar makes a ton of sense as #1 on the list, he is a Hall of Fame member, and is a well known actor outside of the ring too. But just the amount of state's with him at the top is shocking.
The second most popular wrestler overall is Roman Reigns...which is pretty interesting for a few reasons. Even though Edge is a Hall of Famer, he's still a part-time wrestler. Roman Reigns has been the Undisputed WWE Champion for over 1,000 days. He's supposed to be the face of the company, and has been on top of Wrestlemania nearly every year for almost a decade. Him not hitting more than 8 states seems like a like a point of concern for someone they've put this much effort in on.
So what about Louisiana? We'll get to that, let's cover the other WWE Superstars on the list first...starting with Alexa Bliss.
Alexa Bliss is the favorite WWE Superstar in North Dakota. While Asuka is the favorite in Hawaii. Carmella is the final WWE Superstar to only be the favorite in one state, and her state is New Hampshire.
The favorite WWE Superstar in Louisiana is the same wrestler who tops the list in 6 other states. It's Bayley!
Bayley is the favorite in 7 total states, including Louisiana, Maine, Minnesota, Oklahoma, Oregon, South Dakota, and Wyoming. She was actually just one state off from tying Roman Reigns for #2 on the overall list.
Bayley does have a lot going for her. She was one of the Four Horsewomen, she's a Triple Crown and Grand Slam Champion, won Money In The Bank, was named Wrestling Observer's Women's Wrestling MVP in 2020, and ranked #1 on the PWI Women's 100 in 2020. She's a bonafide superstar in wrestling...and the favorite in Louisiana.
