Last April, WWE wrestler Cesaro won the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal at WrestleMania XXX. The next night on Raw, he was congratulated by Hulk Hogan and appeared to be on the fast-track to success. But since then, he has endured a series of crushing defeats and hasn't gotten the kind of push that his fans were hoping for in light of what happened at WrestleMania 30. So early this morning, one of those fans hacked his Twitter account and sent out a series of messages aimed at Vince McMahon and his company in an effort to get Cesaro a proper push.
The first tweet was sent at about 6:30 a.m. and featured the fan calling the WWE a "piece of shit":
The next tweets featured the fan wishing cancer on McMahon:
Then, the fan ran threw out a couple questions regarding the way that Cesaro's WWE career has been handled:
Next, the fan attempted to kickstart the hashtag #PushCesaro:
And finally, the fan gave Cesaro control of Twitter account again by telling him his new password:
At least, we think this was all the work of a fan. For all we know, it could have been Cesaro himself or someone on his team hitting the send button on all of the tweets listed here. But as of right now, they've all been deleted.
There's been no reaction from the WWE yet. But this is now the second crazy Twitter-related scandal involving a WWE wrestler in the last week. Maybe it's time for a quick refresher course on the dangers of social media, guys?
