The 21st century has ushered in a lot of amazing technology, with the Internet being one of the greatest creations but it's a pain for wrestling, and it's creation directly affected wrestling as well. Not only does the internet provide for "insider scoops" which spoil much of wrestling's surprises nowadays, but there's also a dark side of the web which isn't exactly kind to everyone. In the past few years, we've seen so many celebrities get their private photos or videos leaked on the internet, and some of the wrestlers have also fallen prey to this heinous act in the recent years.
With the internet becoming something almost everybody can surf through right now, some of these disgusting hackers have managed to steal the deeply personal, explicit pictures of these wrestlers and leak them on the internet without their consent, bringing much humiliation to the wrestlers themselves. While some others are pictures posted as an act of revenge towards some wrestlers, most of the leaks are by hackers who manage to find these revealing pictures from the wrestlers phones and post them on the internet for everyone to see.
This heinous act of stealing somebody's personal, intimate photos and putting it up for showing in the internet is very wrong as these wrestlers have a right to life their personal lives however they want to, as we take a look at the 9 female and 6 male wrestlers who have had their private photos leaked.
15 Hulk Hogan
Hulk Hogan might be an "immortal" in the wrestling industry, but his reputation has been horribly hindered over the past few years as he has been surrounded with controversy over the years. It all started when a sex tape of Hogan was leaked a few years back from Gawker media, as the pictures (which were pretty blurry) showed Hogan having sexual relations with someone who was definitely not his wife and also showed Hogan naked in the pictures and video as well. Hogan would go onto sue Gawker media for leaking this tape without his permission and did win millions of dollars in the case as well, but the damage had been done as everyone could see this old man in his most revealing form yet(something not many would've liked to see) and it played a factor in Hogan being fired from the WWE and him ending up in a difficult predicament reputation-wise.
14 Velvet Sky
Velvet Sky was one of the founding members of the Beautiful People on TNA, as she attained much success in the promotion where she won the TNA Knockout's Title twice and also won the TNA Knockout's Tag Team title as well. She helped set up their Knockout's division as one of the best in the world, but she was on the receiving end of a cruel leak a few years back. During the mass celebrity leaks in 2014 called "The Fappening", Velvet Sky was one of the female wrestlers to have her personal photos leaked as her nude selfie was leaked during that phase. It goes onto show her fully nude and baring it all in her private moments, as this was something which definitely shouldn't have leaked because of how personal the picture was. Although it has been forgotten for a while now, it's something which brought her much shame back when it was leaked as this explicit picture is something which should've been kept private.
13 Summer Rae
Summer Rae has been mostly used in the WWE so far as eye-candy, as her in-ring talent hasn't been utilized so far by the WWE who made her a valet for most of the time. While she has been out of WWE TV for while a long time now, she suddenly made the news when rumors circulated that her graphic pictures were also going to be leaked after Paige's. Although Rae went onto hush these rumors on twitters, private pictures of her did arise on the internet and there were quite a lot of them. Although they weren't completely nudes of her, they were some rather explicit personal photos which show her posing off to her sexy figure and taking some kinky photos as well. Her photos aren't that bad as compared to the other leaks that have taken place, but she will be left red-faced after being confident of no such leak of her taking place as the cruel hackers somehow gathered her revealing pictures and went onto shame her reputation amongst fans as well.
12 John Cena
While John Cena was rather lucky to never have any "explicit" personal photos of his leaked, some of his crazy partying methods have forced many to follow him around and leak photos which he definitely wouldn't want to be roaming around in the internet. The 16-time World Champion might be close to proposing to Nikki Bella now, but he had a wife named Elizabeth some years back, and they loved to have a load of fun whenever possible. Their partying reached a level of extreme, as a picture of Cena getting a lap-dance from his wife was leaked into the internet a few years ago, which shows just how bad the drunk party scenes for him can be. That leak wasn't really raunchy enough for the WWE to even bat an eye towards it, but Cena definitely wouldn't want himself to be remembered like that in front of his fans as his insane partying style was harshly leaked with that picture.
Paige has been having a bad, bad year as she was already written off by the WWE after serving two wellness violation suspensions, but her fortune only got worse when shocking leaks of the former Divas Champion were posted on the internet a few weeks back. The leaks are extremely revealing, as it shows numerous naked selfies of her wearing different type of costumes and with different expressions. One of them also shows her wearing nothing but the NXT Divas Championship. But it doesn't stop at that, as videos were also leaked showing her having intercourse with Brad Maddox and even Xavier Woods, as her reputation has definitely taken a plummeting after this reveal. It's not really fair on her for anyone to leak her personal stuff like this, as she'll have an extremely difficult time recuperating from this horror and will have to bounce back from it because she still has a long career ahead of her and shouldn't let this barrier from attaining more success in her promising wrestling career.
10 Dana Brooke
Dana Brooke might not be having the best of times after departing as the "protégé" of Charlotte recently, but she has managed to keep herself on WWE TV during this Women's Revolution. Brooke came out of NXT as a promising, strong diva who loved to boast her figure and skills to the audience, but she was also a victim of a photo leak a few years back. Brooke's personal pictures were stolen during the "Fappening" leak, as personal pictures of her including various revealing selfies were leaked. The most explicit one amongst them was probably the bathroom selfie, which shows her completely naked showing her buttocks and back side, as this humiliating leak thankfully didn't affect her career in the WWE but still dented her reputation amongst fans, giving them many opportunities to mock her for the leak.
9 Tom Phillips
Tom Phillips might not be a wrestler in the WWE, but is rising as a very talented commentator who has been taking helm at WWE NXT and Smackdown Live! for some-time now, improving with each passing month. But Phillips was rocked when his "mistress" leaked some of the explicit screen-shots of his conversation with her, in which he is talking dirty to her while travelling with the WWE. What Tom didn't realize are the repercussions, as the woman found out that he was engaged and leaked this to show everyone just how much of a conniving man he is in real life. While it doesn't seem like the WWE will take any actions against Phillips for this leak, but his reputation in front of fans as this "good-guy" was definitely ruined and his rue the day he decided to take a risk and play with two women in the same time.
8 Xavier Woods
Xavier Woods doesn't seem to be the guy in the midst of many personal controversies, as the member of the New Day seems like a cool person who loves to spend time gaming when he's not wrestling. But everyone was shocked when along with the recent leak of some revealing stuff of Paige, Woods was also featured in a video and some images which came along of the video as well. Woods and Paige seem to be getting on with each other pretty well as Brad Maddox goes onto record their "act" on a video camera, as this was all leaked a few weeks back and left many stunned as well. The WWE will not punish Woods for this as it wasn't really his fault and he's one of their most advertized talents right now, but his reputation in front of fans was really dented and changed when he was featured in the shocking video and changed the perception of many towards himself.
7 Zahra Scheiber
Not many WWE fans might know Zahra Scheiber, but those who do remember her are definitely for all the wrong reasons. Scheiber was a trainee under WWE NXT when Rollins was Mr. Money in the Bank, as she was very "close" to Rollins and they were having an affair behind Rollins' fiancée's back. So his now ex-fiancée Leighla Schultz went onto cruelly expose their affair on twitter, as she not only posted Rollins' nude photographs, but also that off Zahra as a nude full body selfie of Scheiber was posted online for the whole world to see,that too from Rollins' official account. This didn't really have much repercussions on Scheiber back then, but she was eventually let go off by the WWE and is now an afterthought, who is remembered for something she wouldn't like as the brutal exposure of her affair with Rollins was a cruel lesson to both of them.
Kaitlyn was the original "NXT Diva" to gain success on the main roster, as she won NXT season 3 and actually went onto do something productive on the main roster unlike most of the other winners. She would be an underdog face who was mostly bullied by the "veterans", but proved everybody wrong when she won the Divas Championship. The Former Body-Builder's career was cut short when she herself decided to leave and join the fitness business and has been out of the limelight for a while now, before her name was back in the papers for all the wrong reasons. After Paige's leaks, Kaitlyn was the female wrestler who was the major target of another leak of many photos, including various nude-selfies. What is almost 10 nude selfies and photos, almost every explicit photo in her storage was posted online by these hackers as this beautiful diva has had her reputation tarnished with this heinous leak as her most private and intimate of photos can now be seen by anyone on the internet, as she has to live as a distraught woman for a long time now.
5 Brad Maddox
Brad Maddox wasn't really that big of a star in the WWE, as he only managed to stay for a couple of years in a non-wrestling role, gaining the eye of audiences when he screwed Ryback in his match against CM Punk. But Maddox suddenly rose to popularity again a few weeks back, when he was visibly featured in the videos leaked of Paige and him. He was the boyfriend of the former Divas Champion a few years back and the videos and pictures of them in their private, intimate moments were leaked for the whole world to see on the internet as we can see Maddox completely nude in many videos and pictures as well as him in rather explicit situations as well with Paige. The weird thing is that Maddox hasn't seem to reply to this leak and has deleted his complete social media accounts from which he could be tracked, propelling many to think whether he was the one who leaked all these or he's just doing it to run from Alberto Del Rio. Be it either of those, Maddox has attained quite a lot of attention in the past few weeks for this leak and almost risen out of the dead in the wrestling world because of the shocking videos and pictures.
Melina might be remembered by the WWE as the arrogant, sexy Diva who was on top of the WWE a few years back, as the Latina was quite the sensation back in the days. Now having to wrestle in the Indy field, Melina was forgotten by many of the WWE fans but suddenly rose back to popularity when her nude private photos were also leaked some-time back. What was numerous personal photos of her in her lingerie, as well as other sexual photos which show her nude from the back and another photo which shows full frontal nudity. These photos were quite the shocking leak as one wouldn't expect anything like this to happen, as the former Women's Champion was also a victim of this cruel leak as her personal, intimate property was posted on the internet for everyone to see and she has to live with the shame which comes with something like this for a long time now.
3 Maria Kanellis
This body is strong and beautiful. This body contains my most important things, my brain and my heart. I am proud of this body. This body can run, sing in the shower, kiss my husband, perform, hug my family, read books, DIY, eat pizza, hold hands, and love. This body. This body, has been photographed. This body, is mine. #KeepingUpWithTheBennetts #positivebodytalk #sexybeast #firstlady #enjoyyourdaywhateveryoursexybodylookslike #wearehuman #loveyourself #iisupportyou #SmallTownGirl #BigTimeDreams
Maria Kanellis might not have achieved as much success in the WWE as she'd had hoped for, but her sexy figure and amazing work as a "diva" in the wrestling industry has helped her garner a lot of popularity in the past decade or so. Maria was also a victim of the recent leak of private photos of female wrestlers, as many personal, explicit photos of her were leaked online some-time back. These photos not only included photos of her in her under-garments but various naked selfies which show her posing up wearing a cowboy hat amongst other things. Even though Maria has posed nude for some magazines in the past, this cruel stealing of her personal photos and leaking them in the internet is something horrible as these pictures are very personal to her, as she's probably distraught at how it got leaked and has to live with the terror of this disgusting leak now.
2 Seth Rollins
Seth Rollins was on top of the world in the WWE two years back, as he was Mr. Money In The Bank who was going to be WWE World Champion soon and was riding high on his horse, before it came crashing down for him in his personal life. His now ex-fiancée Leighla Schultz found out about his affair with then-NXT developmental Diva Zahra Schreiber and showed his revenge in its cruelest form, as she went onto leak nude photos of Rollins on the internet. This nudes showed Rollins showing off his "assets" to his love back then, as it was posted directly on twitter and many fans got to see it. Rollins wasn't punished because of it and went onto win the WWE World Heavyweight Championship at WrestleMania 31 afterwards, but this nasty leak will be an important life lesson for him to never cheat on someone as that caused him much humiliation a few years back with this shocking leak.
You have the right to remain silent. Thank you for sharing @victoria.wwe #Repost @victoria.wwe with @repostapp ・・・ She would've been a badass cop 👮🏻♀️💋@reallisamarie #widowspeak #victoria #wwevictoria #tnaknockoutschampion #tnaknockouts #badass #badasscop #wwe #wweraw #wwe2k17 #wwedivas #moviestar #moviematerial
Victoria has had quite the amazing wrestling career, as she has excelled in both and TNA in her career as she started out with the WWE during their "Golden Era" for Women's Wrestling and won the Women's Championship twice in her career. She then went onto become one of the top Divas in TNA, helping its Knockout's Division reach newer heights as well and while she has had a quite, peaceful personal life so far, that was rocked some-time back. During the leaks of many female wrestlers, pictures of Victoria were also leaked as a photo of her completely naked was posted on the internet. These photos are really cruel to Victoria and should've been kept private. She hasn't done anything to deserve these leaks, as her reputation and name will be ruined because of this and she has to live with the shame of the leaks for the rest of her life now.
