Recently we looked at which WWE talents' YouTube videos attracted the most video views for videos uploaded between January 29 and July 10 of this year.
Nikki Bella was the only female talent who ranked highly for most videos with over 1 million views. She's the only woman with more than 4 videos with over 1 million views.
Of the 15 videos featuring Nikki, 11 also featured Cena. Nikki and Cena were frequently featured together leading up to their WrestleMania match against Miz and Maryse. The popular video in which Cena proposes marriage to Nikki is included in this count as well.
Without the Cena videos, Nikki has as many 1 million-view videos as any other female talent. Without Cena she would have 4, as do Bayley, Charlotte Flair and Carmella. Two of Carmella’s 4 videos at over 1 million also involve both Cena and Nikki.
If Nikki was not teamed with Cena around WrestleMania and she had been featured in some other way it’s plausible at least 1 video featuring her still would have gotten 1 million views, which would still make her the leader by this measurement.
If we count videos with more than 500,000 views, Alexa Bliss appears to perform well, tying Nikki at 22 (which includes the 11 Cena videos), trailed by Bayley with 19, Naomi with 17 and both Charlotte Flair and Sasha Banks with 15.
It should also be noted Nikki hasn't appeared on weekly WWE programming since WrestleMania in early April. So she ranks well here despite being inactive for the majority of the period studied.
Like when we looked at WWE overall, while it helps, having a higher number of videos didn't necessarily indicate having a higher number of videos that performed well.
Bayley is the female talent featured in the most videos, at 60. The next closest woman is Bliss (48), followed by Nikki (41), Banks (38) and Charlotte (38).
