25 Most Revealing WWE Instagram Posts Of The Week

It’s clearly time to start thinking about the biggest PPV events of 2018, with an ABC affiliate spoiling the big matches at Hell In A Cell in September, news of Brock Lesnar possibly facing Bobby Lashley and the top bouts at Extreme Rules apparently revealed online. Hopefully, we’ll see the right story momentum set up in the meantime, given how much time creative has to play with.

Elsewhere, WWE made a huge signing in the shape of Io Shirai, there was more talk of The Undertaker appearing at Summerslam and Dolph Ziggler’s future was the subject of much speculation. But almost everything pales into insignificance next to the revelation that Vince McMahon wants to spend $500m on the first three seasons of XFL. That’s an eye-watering amount of money, but at least it shows he’s keen…?

Meanwhile, there’s been even more speculation that WWE want Cody Rhodes back – along with the Young Bucks – further talk of Rey Mysterio’s “imminent” deal and a new heel gimmick for Bayley. Some of this will work. Some of it probably won’t. Evil hugs, anyone?

And through it all, the WWE superstars took to Instagram to peel back the curtain and show off what it’s really like to be a professional wrestler. Seemingly it involves a lot more dog biting than anyone could ever have imagined.

This was the week in WWE Instagram…

25. Braun And The Bear

Only Braun Strowman could look this happy to bee holding one of the world’s apex predators in his hands. The little guy genuinely looks intimidated and he literally lives with actual bears.

With her ESPN Body Issue shoot hitting shelves, Charlotte shared more pictures from the special issue and explained what drove her to do it.

23. Hardy At Mount Rushmore

Trust Matt Hardy to completely overshadow a shot as famous as the heads at Mount Rushmore with a simple but devastatingly hilarious caption. “The Rhinoceros and The Band Of One Man Who Is Financially Responsible For A Plethora Of Offspring” need an official rebranding right now.

22. Mandy And Sonya

This week Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville hit the beach and revealed that the latter isn’t exactly a natural at posing.

When u can’t pose so you try to get awkward candid shots instead ? @mandysacs

21. Jericho And Kevin Smith

He might be a miss from WWE at the minute, but Chris Jericho is keeping busy – this week teasing a forthcoming promo with Kevin Smith, seemingly to help promote Skyscraper.

20. Welcome Io

Welcome #WWE’s newest signee, #IoShirai! #WWETokyo

A post shared by WWE (@wwe) on

With the news that she’s just become WWE’s next big signing, Io Shirai was greeted by the company’s official account.

The highly decorated star also shared her own reaction…

I'm so excited!!!! #wwe #wwenxt

A post shared by 紫雷イオ (@shirai_io) on

19. Dad Gifts, The Rock Style

When The Rock’s your dad, you get special presents. And then he makes weird sex jokes about him being a carousel at weekends. So it’s win win, really.

18. Lana Goes Full Targaryen

Caption this ….. (@fashionnova)

A post shared by CJ Perry (@thelanawwe) on

If HBO are ever looking to recast Daenerys Targaryen, they could do a lot worse than bring in Lana.

She also took in some sights with Rusev in Japan too, obviously not passing up on a chance for #content…

17. Hulk Wonders

Clearly, Hulk Hogan has some lingering wishes about how his iconic match with The Ultimate Warrior should have gone down. Interesting to hear him talk about an alternate universe this way.

16. Odd Dating Tips From Brie Bella

Apparently, the key to reinvigorating your romantic life with your husband is to bring a goat into your relationship.

15. Triple H Says Goodbye

With Toys R Us closing its doors for the last time, Triple H waved off a modern day WWE institution in the shape of Geoffrey the giraffe. It’s the end of an era.

14. Wax On, Wax Off

stronger everyday | markshane @shapeupstudio2018 @thebriebella

A post shared by Nikki Bella (@thenikkibella) on

If there’s one thing the Bellas do well, it’s synchronised gym workouts. That takes some serious focus.

13. Seth’s Rodeo

Anarchy in Anaheim __________ ? @kaemg

A post shared by Seth Rollins (@wwerollins) on

Never let an opportunity like a broken ring rope pass you by when you could do as Seth Rollins did this week and windmill it around your head for the appreciation of the fans.

12. Nat’s Shinsuke Tribute

We are sending you all the love in the world @shinsukenakamura … xo, @2pawz! ?

A post shared by natbynature (@natbynature) on

After he was bitten by a dog, Natalya shared a touching (and hilarious) tribute to Shinsuke Nakamura this week. That’s some strong cat cosplay.

11. DDP Remembers

 

He shared a great promo shot for National Sunglasses Day, reminding everyone just how badly missed WWE’s goofy promo shots still are…

Bet you wish you had these shades for #NationalSunglassesDay

A post shared by Diamond Dallas Page (DDP) (@diamonddallaspage) on

10. Emma At The Beach

If you take one thing from Emma’s post-WWE career trajectory, it should be to be as happy as possible, no matter how different things might be to your plans. Also, go to the beach.

9. Xavier Woods In Japan

I LOVE LIFE!!!! @upupdwndwn

A post shared by Austin Creed (@xavierwoodsphd) on

Who doesn’t love Xavier Woods? This week, he (and Becky Lynch and some other superstars) took in Japanese culture and re-enacted Mario Kart for real on the streets. As you do.

He also shared just how few f*cks the country gives for political correctness…

I love Japan

A post shared by Austin Creed (@xavierwoodsphd) on

8. Paige GLOWS Up

As the second season of the show hit Netflix this weekend, the stars of GLOW showed up backstage with Paige.

7. Rusev Takes In Some Culture

1000 Kg Ni-Ou

A post shared by Miroslav Barnyashev (@rusevig) on

It’s basically the law that you have to take in some touristy culture when you hit a new country. Rusev clearly looks delighted to be doing just that in Japan.

6. Ronda Backstage

Always a student ??‍♀️?? @ajstylesvwwe #MemoriesInTheBank #mitb

A post shared by rondarousey (@rondarousey) on

These candid backstage shots showing interactions between wrestlers are always great, but this one really captures Rousey’s willingness to drink in everything AJ Styles is teaching her.

5. Tyler Shows Off

d o u b l e s h i n y b o i

A post shared by Twitter @Tyler_Bate (@tylerbate_97) on

New NXT tag champion Tyler Bate is clearly enjoying his new shiny belts. Also, he appears to be morphing into Conor McGregor more with each passing day…

4. Asuka Has A Pen…

PPAP

A post shared by WWEAsuka (@wwe_asuka) on

You know you’ve arrived as a true rock icon when you’re invited to pose with a WWE star. Even if your most notorious hit is literally about pens, apples and pineapples.

3. Joe And Snake

#SamoaSnake

A post shared by Samoa Joe (@samoajoe_wwe) on

This week, Samoa Joe went to what looks like the greatest arcade in the world and took time out to pose with a video game legend,

2. Maria Hitting Hard

it surely can’t be too long before Maria Kanelllis makes it back to a wrestling ring, given how quickly she’s progressed after giving birth. More power to her.

After the sad news of former Tough Enough winner Matt Cappotelli’s death, his wife Linda shared this heart-breaking tribute to him. His story is a tragedy and all our thoughts are with his family.
