Ricochet’s Frustration with Meta Over Instagram Lockout Reveals a Tech Grapple


  • Ricochet, esteemed WWE athlete, confronts tech giant Meta over his Instagram account issues.
  • The wrestler’s attempt to regain access hits a snag due to outdated phone number complications.
  • Despite the setback, Ricochet’s focus remains on his professional wrestling journey, including aspirations for WrestleMania 40.

WWE’s high-flying sensation, Ricochet, recently found himself entangled not in the ropes of a wrestling ring but in the virtual grip of social media frustrations. Widely celebrated for his aerodynamic prowess and athletic feats within the squared circle, the “One and Only” has lately been grappling with a challenge of a different sort—accessing his Instagram account.

Ricochet took his grievances public, not through the traditional press, but by broadcasting them on X (formerly known as Twitter), articulating his ordeal with Meta, the parent company of Instagram. In a moment of palpable frustration, Ricochet expressed, “Instagram logged me out, when I try to log in they send a code to my old number. But now I can’t log in or get ahold of ANYONE to change my number so they can send me the code to my new phone. Good work @Meta, you suck. 👍🏽”

This technology tussle throws a rare spotlight on the off-ring battles that wrestlers like Ricochet face, diverging from their usual narrative of physical contest and sports entertainment storyline development. Amidst his technical turmoil, Ricochet also navigated professional setbacks, missing out on securing a spot in a crucial WWE Intercontinental title bout at WrestleMania 40 due to a gauntlet match loss to Sami Zayn.

Ricochet’s ordeal is not just a solitary battle but reflects a broader issue of user experience and customer support within major tech companies. His experience underscores the sometimes overlooked aspect of how social media and technology intersect with the personal and professional lives of public figures.

As Ricochet navigates this digital dilemma, his fans and the wrestling community watch closely, hopeful for a resolution that sees the high-flyer once again freely sharing his life and climbs inside the ring with his vast following. With WrestleMania 40 on the horizon, the wrestling world eagerly awaits to see if Ricochet can flip this setback into a comeback, both online and in the ring.
