In case you haven't been paying attention to the newsboard lately, there appears to be some turmoil going on backstage with the creative team. This time around, it's not the usual hijinks where shows are changed at the last minute and the officials are worn out. This time around, it's centered around spoilers. Apparently, a Reddit user by the named of Dolphins1925 has flawlessly predicted the outcome of every single PPV match of every WWE PPV starting from this year's Elimination Chamber PPV. EVERY. SINGLE. ONE.
Not only that, he even managed to predict the nature of the outcome of some of the predicted outcomes such as the "ADR/Ziggler" double turn that happened @ Payback. So, just how did a normal every day WWE fan get a hold of such confidential information. Well, Dolphins1925 had this to say:
I would like to clarify once again that I DO NOT work for WWE. I am not a WWE Superstar, I am not with; the lighting crew, the camera crew, the sound technicians, the stagehands, the prop guys, the merchandise sellers, nor the popcorn vendor in the 15th Row, â€œCongratulations, Louie!â€
I am just a WWE fan like everyone else, and I am getting my information from a source who has VERY credible inside information regarding the outcomes (win/losses) of the matches themselves. Given that this information is out there, we both feel that I should continue to share this information until it garners the attention ofWWE. Vince and upper management are not taking reasonable measures to prevent this information from being leaked. These people whom are leaking this information are profiting off it at the expense of the WWE, the fans, and the integrity of the product. It is for these reasons that I am hoping to put an end to WWE insiders leaking PPV outcomes.
Also, I feel that WWE owes the fans. They need to be more protective of the actual results as a fellow Redditor had stated in the thread. It is hurting the integrity of the product, and I should not have access to this information.
So, how has the WWE responded to this? Well, the WWE was apparently unaware of what was going on until this week so they decided to release this public statement on the issue:
"We may have a modern day Nostradamus on our hands. We might have to monitor these posts in advance of our next pay-per-view to see how good he or she really is."
Well, whether you agree with Dolphin1925's crusade or not, I believe that Summerslam will ultimately make or break D1925's objective. If he or she is correct about the Summerslam predictions, that could strengthen the spoiler leakage argument presented. Conversely, getting just one match wrong could tarnish Dolphin1925's reputation. But enough about the ramifications. What do you people think about this situation overall? Who is Dolphins1925? Who's the source? What will happen if the predictions are all correct? What about if one or more of them are wrong? What measures do you think the WWE will take to prevent spoilers from being leaked?
