WWE Has Twitter Shut Down Parody Accounts, Kelly’s Anniversary



- WWE has been very aggressive this week in shutting down parody and fake Twitter accounts mocking the organization and its employees as well as Facebook pages portraying WWE Superstars. Notably, a popular Twitter account parodying head chief Vince McMahon was suspended Wednesday. Known as CrankyVince, the account would spoof McMahon’s demeanor and mindset with random musings depicting the WWE Chairman as eccentric, maniacal and drug-addled. It had drawn alarming concern from organization officials since last year, who believed it was being controlled by an employee within proximity of McMahon due to the personal nature of the tweets. The account would often post messages based on things he had legitimately done or said at work—sometimes minutes after occurring.

Twitter generally permits parody accounts as long as it is stated that the account is a parody in the description.

- Six years ago Wednesday, Kelly Kelly made her debut in WWE. Her character, an exhibitionist, was introduced performing a striptease for the crowd on the premiere episode of ECW on Syfy. Commemorating her six-year anniversary with WWE, fans of the blonde starlet managed to get #Happy6YearsInWWEK2 trending worldwide on Twitter. She said of this, “Omg amazing thank u all so much!”

- Vader spoke to WWE.com about his return to Raw. Hear what he had to say about defeating Heath Slater, as well as his thoughts on WWE greats such as Shawn Michaels and Undertaker.
