Hello and welcome once again to the ‘Most Intriguing Instagram Posts of the Week’. Here, as always, I collect all the best snaps taken from around the world of wrestling just for you. This week we’ve got images from All In, the Mae Young Classic, Raw and SmackDown Live and more.
So without further ado, let’s get cracking!
Bro and Big
Both Matt Riddle and Keith Lee have recently joined NXT. They have had hard-hitting battles in the past and will hopefully have plenty more in the future. Plus, the ‘King of Bros’ is remaining barefoot. It’s a win-win.
All In’s Main Event

Bandido – We needed one more man in our match. We searched YouTube, and I was sold within 1 minute. I booked him right then and there. He is the next breakout star. Mark my words. Kota Ibushi – First met at a Chikara show in ‘09, watching him and Nick, Generico and Jigsaw tear the house down. We joke that his personality reminds us of a Japanese version of Jeff Hardy. He’s a great friend of mine. Fenix – The craziest wrestler in the world. Absolutely fearless. He can do anything, and will do anything for you. I want him on my team. Rey Mysterio – I met him at Halloween Havoc 2000 in Las Vegas and he said encouraging things to me. He inspired my children’s book. He’s one of my role models and is the greatest highflier in the history of the business. Nick – My brother, business partner and forever tag team partner. You watch him and are convinced you can do anything because he makes it look so effortless. The best hot tag of all time. So blessed to share a ring with these guys.
Matt Jackson listed off his fellow All In main eventers and let us all know a bit about his relationship with them. This incredible personal message goes a long way in showing just how much the show meant to them and how it has brought people from all over together.
The Best Thing On SmackDown Live
Someone tell me this isn’t the best storyline on SmackDown Live right now. Forget AJ Styles and Samoa Joe. Forget Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair. R-Truth is the one all eyes are on right now, in 2018… madness. He is literally wrestling’s version of Deadpool and he managed to talk his way into the main event spot on the blue brand this week.
