Reddit user shaking up WWE by leaking results of 38 matches and counting

NEW YORK (PIX11) -- You can call him the Edward Snowden of professional wrestling. A Reddit user is shaking up the world of the WWE, revealing the outcome of over 3 dozen wrestling matches before they even happened.

The WWE has put on several rousing shows for countless years but now an apparent leak in the department is rattling the multi-billion pro-wrestling industry.

A fan identified as “Dolphins1925” on the social news site Reddit, has already predicted the outcome of 38-consecutive wrestling matches, going back to February.

The phantom troll is crediting his incredible accuracy to a source with the WWE.

His intention he said, was to shed light on the fact that the organization is not taking the proper measures to prevent this information from being leaked.

Despite the fact that wrestling is widely known to be staged with scripted storylines, many would think – “so what? What’s the big deal?”

Well these “spoilers” may soon affect the betting linked to matches — which according to Deadspin is on the rise.

This week, the WWE addressed the controversy, calling the Reddit user “a modern day Nostradamus.”

“We might have to monitor these posts in advance of our next pay-per-view to see how good he or she really is,” a spokesperson told Deadspin.

We’re sure fans will also be doing their own monitoring.
