5 WWE Superstars who used social media to criticize their booking
It has been a long while since the advent of the internet, and web-enabled smartphones have become a necessity for most humans. It was only a matter of time before WWE Superstars took advantage of the internet and use it to advance their careers.
Quite possibly the most over woman in WWE at the moment, Becky Lynch, has used Twitter effectively to promote her feuds and take shots at her opponents. Her jibes and insults towards Ronda Rousey and Charlotte Flair on the road to WrestleMania 35 helped her a great deal, to the extent that she was named the 2nd most mentioned female athlete on Twitter, right behind Tennis star, Serena Williams.
There there are some Superstars who use social media for completely different reasons. With a huge roster, there's no way WWE could ever manage to satisfy every single Superstar.
For every Reigns and Rollins, there will be a Rusev who wouldn't get pushed no matter how hard they tried. Let's take a look at 5 WWE Superstars who took to social media and hurled shots at their WWE booking.
#5 Luke Harper
Although we mostly see WWE Superstars take to Twitter or Instagram to express their opinions, this wasn't the case with former Wyatt Family member Luke Harper.
After WrestleMania 35 was done and dusted with, Luke Harper requested his WWE release, and was expecting to be granted the same. Unfortunately, Vince McMahon had other plans. Harper was not granted his release. Moreover, WWE extended his contract until early 2020.
Harper later appeared on Xavier Woods' Youtube show, UpUpDownDown, and took a shot at how he was not being booked despite WWE extending his contract. While leaving the gaming area, Harper asked whether he would get booked on this show.
