In 2019, the WWE loves social media.

From Facebook to Twitter, YouTube to their very own WWE App, the company have thrust themselves into the digital revolution (also, remember Tout?).

Often, social media is a force for good for WWE, allowing Superstars to connect with their fans on a platform they never would've been able to 15 years ago.

However, social media can often be a huge problem, allowing people to say what they want to whomever, shielded by a computer screen.

Even top stars in WWE have found themselves making the wrong call on social media.

Here are five social media posts these WWE Superstars wish they could take back.

Note: Due to many of these social media posts being highly offensive, we will not be showing any of them in this feature.


#5 Josh Bredl's social blunder

A lot of you may be thinking right now: who in the heck is Josh Bredl?

Well for a time, Bredl was supposed to be the next big star in WWE after winning the 2015 edition of Tough Enough.

Signing a developmental contract with the company, things quickly went off the rails for the Superstar, after referring to the team the Social Outcasts as the Social Jobbers.

Sure, the group of Bo Dallas, Curtis Axel, Heath Slater, and Adam Rose rarely won, but Bredl's clear dig at them was seen as unprofessional by many.

Cody Rhodes and Kevin Owens even went as far as to imply that Josh wouldn't be allowed in the main roster locker-room if he ever got called up.

Ultimately, Bredl would never make it to TV, though that year's Tough Enough did give the WWE Universe a different future star: The Velveteen Dream.
