Roman Reigns is on a roll since his return to the company back at WWE SummerSlam last year. He returned as the Tribal Chief and truly reinvented himself. The change was several years in the making as fans clamored for it for so long

The Head of the Table has certainly been very dominant as the WWE Universal Champion as he has remained the champion for well over a year now. It is unlikely he will be losing the title anytime soon from the looks of it. He has competed against several top WWE Superstars throughout that time.

According to digital growth agency LoveUX, Roman Reigns gained more followers on Instagram than any other wrestler this year. He has gained 1.65 million new followers. Eva Marie gained the second-highest number of new followers within wrestling, with 584,768 users following her. Bianca Belair earned the #3 spot, with 542,685  new followers.

Roman Reigns has had a terrific 2021, so it is not hard to understand why he gained so many followers. Reigns is set to defend his WWE Universal Championship at WWE Day 1 on January 1st, 2022 against Brock Lesnar. It remains to be seen how long Roman Reigns will remain the champion.
