With the popularity of professional wrestling growing decade after decade, it shouldn’t be surprising that WWE stars are seen as celebrities. Much like other celebrities, they are frequently followed around by the paparazzi.
In the age of the Internet and modern technology, this allows fans to get a glimpse of Superstars and Divas outside of the ring, taking a look at time spent outside of the WWE, with families and significant others, and participating in activities that don’t involve slamming an opponent’s face into the mat. However, the downside of being trailed by the paparazzi is that sometimes, embarrassing moments are caught for the world to see.
These photos are often posted online, shared through social media, and reach millions of people in almost no time at all. While most wrestlers try to stay on their best behavior, especially when they know that the cameras are watching, it is just inevitable that embarrassing moments will be caught on camera and put on public display.
Photos and videos that show a different side to these professional athletes can circulate in just minutes. Here, we have a list of 20 of the most embarrassing WWE Superstar moments caught by the paparazzi.

While this wasn’t necessarily caught by the paparazzi, it was obtained and leaked online by an unknown source and was quickly picked up by news and gossip websites. In 2012, Hulk Hogan filmed a sex tape with his friend’s wife. While that is shocking in itself, what came next destroyed everything Hulk had worked for. In the tape, he made several racist comments that left wrestling fans’ jaws on the floor. The shocking rants not only stunned the world, but they also spurred the WWE to take action. After the release of the tape and confirmation by Hulk that it was him featured on the tape, WWE removed all videos and memorabilia of him from the site and immediately removed him from the Hall of Fame and ended his contract with the organization.
