For the past few weeks, WWE SmackDown has been teasing the return of a WWE superstar who has now come to be known to fans as the ‘WWE SmackDown mystery hacker’. Though the identity of the hacker is yet to be confirmed, fans are eager to see what WWE does with this storyline. This week, the WWE SmackDown mystery hacker invaded WWE Backstage for some time during its broadcast.
WWE on FOX later took to Twitter and teased that the hacker could potentially be former WWE Champion CM Punk. FOX posted the hacker’s clip from WWE Backstage with the text, 'Do I have everybody's attention now?', which was an iconic line frequently used by CM Punk in one of his pipebomb segments in 2011.
For weeks, CM Punk has been one of the top choices among fans to be the WWE SmackDown mystery hacker and after FOX’s tweet went viral, fans thought the hacker is definitely 'The Best in the World'. However, CM Punk recently took to Twitter and turned the rumour into dust. He reacted to WWE on FOX's tweet with a facepalm GIF.
In many videos, the hacker can be seen targeting various WWE SmackDown Tag-Teams including The New Day, The Usos and Nikki Cross & Alexa Bliss. Because of this, fans all over the world have speculated that there could be two hackers and when they appear on WWE SmackDown, they will go after the Tag-Team titles. Recently, a WWE fan broke down the audio from one of the hacker’s videos and uncovered both Ali and Shorty G’s voices. Wrestling Observer Newsletter recently confirmed the rumours and revealed that the hackers could indeed be Ali and Shorty G as both have been out of action for months.
