Triple H and Stephanie McMahon could feel a little jealous for not having access to Instagram during their hey-days with the WWE, but nevertheless, we have to accept that the passing of every generation gives its own, unique ways for celebrities to stay in the limelight.

Basically, it's the era of forced-voyeurism and we have no option but to live the life of the Kardashians and the Jenners.

WWE superstars of today are taking access to social media in the best way possible to flaunt their out-of-ring life, their celebrity lifestyle and everything else the fans are feasting more on.

Instagram may have come as the biggest boon for the lovebirds and couples, with plenty of the WWE stars breaking kayfabe to put forward pictures from their honeymoons, vacations...and even bedrooms. Nothing is secret any more. It's the era of flaunting!

The heavyweight pro wrestler Rusev, whose real name is Miroslav Barnyashev may not have been that much of a fan favourite, but following the disclosure of his real-life relationship with the drop-dead gorgeous Lana, WWE fans are talking about Rusev and Lana, almost everywhere.
