It all basically started with MySpace, which made its debut in 2003, then Facebook exploded in 2006, and the social media revolution had begun. While there have been many fads over the past few years (remember Tout?), one particular instrument of social media, Instagram, has gained a huge footing ever since it was introduced in 2010. Instagram allows its users to share photographs and add a caption to them. You can also get creative and add filters to your photos as well for an added effect.
When it comes to the WWE, there are many great Instagram accounts, especially with beautiful divas such as Emma, Eva Marie, and Sasha Bank all on it, just to name a few. It’s not just the women of the WWE who have great accounts, but some of the men also have cool accounts that are humorous or give a great look behind the scenes like Enzo Amore and Triple H. Unfortunately, not all WWE superstar Instagram accounts are great, and there are 15 of them in this article that are proof.
There are quite a few accounts that exist for current and past WWE Superstars that are just not worth following. Some of the reasons why they are not worth paying attention to range from the fact that they’re just using it to advertise their side ventures to the fact that they don’t pay attention to their account by never using it. Continue on with this article to see which WWE Instagram accounts you can avoid to save yourself some time.
15. Adam Rose
It is a little odd that a member of the Social Outcasts is on this list, but Adam Rose actually isn’t the only one. His account does have some great stuff in it with his family, which has been well documented if you have seen the ESPN E:60 special. However, overall Rose’s account doesn’t really contain much. It has a couple of selfies, a couple of pictures from television, one strange workout photo (shown above), and that’s about it. If being a Social Outcast means not using your Instagram account that much, Rose definitely fits the bill.
14. AJ Styles
Having been with Impact Wrestling for 12 years before going to Ring of Honor and New Japan Pro Wrestling, many figured that AJ Styles would be the best wrestler to never step inside a WWE ring; however, what may have seemed impossible at one time was very real when Styles made his debut at the 2016 Royal Rumble. While there are some great family photos on Styles’ Instagram account, he has only made one post since his WWE debut. Before that, it had been nearly a year since he last used his Instagram account. While AJ is one of the best wrestlers in the WWE, he’s not one of the greatest on Instagram.
13. Big Cass
Big Cass, along with his tag team partner Enzo Amore made huge waves with their thunderous debut on Monday Night Raw earlier this month. He is seven feet tall, and you can’t teach that. However, someone needs to teach Cass how to use his Instagram account. When taking a look at his account, you see a very cool picture of him with Stone Cold Steve Austin from WrestleMania Weekend, but then you go on to look at the rest of the account and you see a whopping eight more posts. You’d figure Cass would have a great Instagram account since his tag team partner Enzo has a very good one, but that’s not the case.
12. Bo Dallas
And here is a second entry from the Social Outcasts group. There could’ve been a third bad entry with Heath Slater, but he doesn’t even have Instagram! So while Curtis Axel is the only Outcast member worth following on Instagram, Bo Dallas is not. He has a whopping six photos posted and the last one was posted 78 weeks ago. Social media must not run in Bo Dallas’ family as you will see his brother later on in this article. For a guy who wants you to “Bo-Lieve,” someone should tell him it’s hard to get the message out when you don’t use your Instagram account!
11. Booker T
Most of the entrants in this article are on the “do not follow” list because of the lack of content they provide on their Instagram accounts, but for WWE Hall of Famer Booker T, he does use his Instagram account often, but it is usually to sell or promote something. People want to follow their favorite wrestler for an extra glimpse into their life. They don’t want to see advertisements for an upcoming show or podcast. There are plenty of other avenues for that instead of Instagram.
10. Bray Wyatt
Bray Wyatt is the WWE’s most enigmatic character today, and at the age of 28, there is a lot more that he has to offer to the pro wrestling industry. You would figure he could use Instagram to get an insight into his mind and artistic style, but unfortunately, like his real-life brother Bo Dallas, Wyatt created an Instagram account (because WWE management probably told him to do so) and then posted one photo. He has seemingly never logged into his account ever again. That might explain why he only has 13 thousand followers on Instagram as everyone has given up hope that Bray is ever going to use the account.
Cesaro is one of the best wrestlers in the company and has a huge fan base that has helped him gain the status he’s attained in the WWE. They call themselves the Cesaro Section, and now they have their own WWE t-shirt with the return of Cesaro from injury. As for his Instagram, this is a case where it was a really good account at first, with many different pictures of Cesaro behind the scenes, but over the past six months or so, it’s been Cesaro trying to audition to be the next James Bond. Maybe now that he’s wrestling again, it’ll become a great account again.
One of the wrestlers we definitely miss the most is the “Rated R Superstar” Edge. It’s hard to believe it’s already been five years since he’s retired, but thankfully his creative and funny side can be seen in his great WWE Network show with his former tag team partner Christian. He has a huge following on Instagram pushing nearly 100k followers, however, there just is nothing here to see. His last Instagram picture was posted 184 weeks ago. For those without a calculator, that’s three and a half years. In total, there are only seven pictures posted on the account, so it is definitely best to just move along.
This could be more of the fact that he hasn’t been used in the WWE in a very long time; however, he is still listed on the current roster. But Hornswoggle’s Instagram account is one you can skip over. There have only been a handful of posts over the past year and half and those were from a concert he attended. You’d figure someone like the fun loving little guy Hornswoggle would have a fun Instagram account to follow, especially after making a few appearances in the prank show Swerved on the WWE Network, but unfortunately that is not the case.
6. Jack Swagger
Jack Swagger is definitely a real american representing the United States and based out of his hometown of Perry, Oklahoma. While Swagger is a former world champion within the WWE, he has been sparingly used as there just isn’t anything that creative has had for him recently. As for his Instagram account, if Swagger had more hilarious pictures like this Halloween picture with a wig and Zubaz pants (all he’s missing is the fanny pack), it would be a great one to follow. Unfortunately the account only has a total of 11 posts with the last one occurring over 70 weeks ago.
5. Jerry Lawler
Jerry “The King” Lawler is not only a legend in the ring as a professional wrestler since his debut in 1970, he is also a legend at the broadcast table for his near 20 years on color commentary. Many will say that one of the best announcing teams in pro wrestling history would be Jim Ross and Jerry Lawler during the Attitude Era. Just like the “Swiss Superman” Cesaro, Lawler’s Instagram account used to be really good. He’s made nearly 150 posts, but it almost seems like Lawler decided not to use Instagram in 2016 as he hasn’t made a new post in the new year.
4. Michael Cole
Michael Cole is the voice of the WWE today. Everywhere the WWE goes, Michael Cole goes- either as the lead announcer of Monday Night Raw or as a producer when it comes to Smackdown. So you figure with all the travelling that Michael Cole does on a week to week basis, there would be a great Instagram account to document the number of days he is on the road. Well, that would not be true, as he has made a total of FOUR posts to his Instagram account ever. More than likely it was one of those directives from management to create one, but he is yet to really use it.
3. Randy Orton
One of the biggest stars in the WWE today is “The Viper” Randy Orton. He has been on the shelf with an injury over the past few months, but is poised to strike once again in the WWE in the very near future. Being one of the biggest WWE Superstars means you have a lot of fans, and on Instagram, Orton has a total of 1.5 million followers. While he was off to a great start, the past year or so he has not really been using the account much. He posted getting a tattoo while being out injured, and some cool additions to his game room, but that is about it.
When it comes to the WWE and Instagram, the women are some of the greatest people to follow within the company. Not only because they are extremely gorgeous, but also they are very, very active on their accounts as well. That is pretty much a fact because in this list of 15 WWE superstars, there is only one woman on the list- Tamina. The daughter of “Superfly” Jimmy Snuka has carved her own career within the WWE with Team BAD. Unfortunately, her last Instagram post was 115 weeks ago, so this is one woman in the WWE not to follow.
1. Tyler Breeze
For being the king of selfies, a man who has seasonal residences, and basically a guy who is completely self-absorbed , you’d figure Tyler Breeze would have a more interesting Instagram account. The good news is that it seems like Breeze has turned the corner over the past few weeks with pictures at a Dallas Stars game and at a Lamborghini dealer. Before that, though, there were just screenshots and photos from television with some fan art here and there. Breeze is not quite off our worst-to-follow list and definitely hasn’t hit must-follow status yet either!
