• Former WWE Intercontinental Champion Complains To Elon Musk

Former WWE Intercontinental Champion Ryback had troubles with his Twitter account for several years and now ended up complaining directly to Twitter owner Elon Musk, who took over the social media giant last year.

Here’s what The Big Guy tweeted:

“Hello @elonmusk my account has been severely limited over 6.5 years and have lost over 300K followers. I’m one of the most followed pro wrestlers on the planet, but can’t seem to engage my nearly 1.4 million followers here. Can anyone at Twitter help me resolve this?”

A fan then showed support for Ryback’s “shadow-ban” issue by tweeting the following:

“@Meta Can you explain why I have to type this much to find @Ryback’s account ‘thebigguyryback22’ on @instagram?

You refuse to acknowledge he’s being shadow banned. Also why can’t he sell his supplements on instagram when I see other supplement companies with stores selling?”

Ryback was destined to be ‘The Next Big Thing’ in 2012, when he achieved an impressive 38 match winning streak that could’ve easily continued for at least another year, if WWE hadn’t put him into the main event too quickly, in order to replace an injured John Cena.

CM Punk was going to drop the WWE Championship to The Rock at the upcoming Royal Rumble 2013 PPV, so they had to end Ryback’s streak somehow in the main event of Hell In A Cell 2012, and they did so with the referee turning heel and screwing The Big Guy.

After the undefeated streak ended, the bad booking for the up-and-coming top star continued and his push in WWE eventually came to an end.

• Old School ECW Veteran Celebrates His Birthday

Old School ECW Veteran Masato Tanaka celebrates his 50th birthday today.

Masato Tanaka made a name for himself in his home country Japan while wrestling for the hardcore promotion Frontier Martial-Arts Wrestling during the 90s, but north american Old School wrestling fans mostly remember him for his time in Paul Heyman’s Extreme championship Wrestling from 1998 until 2000.

In late 1999, he defeated Mike Awesome to become the first non-american ECW World Heavyweight Champion, but that reign only lasted a week.
