WWE on Instagram

Entered in Instagram


Followed by 1.69 million WWE Universe members worldwide, our WWE Instagram account gives fans the behind-the-scenes, outside-the-ring look at their favorite WWE Superstars as they travel to more than 300 live events each year, all around the world.

While more than 450 million social media followers follow WWE's social profiles across 11 different social networks, only WWE's Instagram channel provides our followers a candid look into the demanding road-warrior life of a WWE Superstar or Diva, away from the glaring spotlights and TV cameras.

Our social producers travel to every domestic and international WWE Live Event, and are "embedded" backstage with the Superstar roster, finding the moments that tell the story behind the Superstars' characters, and often aiding to advance storylines seen on television.

Our producers also offer their creative expertise to the Superstars, working with them on their own personally-run Instagram accounts, shooting entertaining video packages to air on the social network.

In addition to our Superstars' photos from events and the road, the WWE Social Team holds Instagram photo contests and hashtag contests regularly, to reward our followers with WWE merchandise and Superstar autographed items.
