The Mysterious SmackDown Hacker has taken over the Blue Brand with his cryptic messages and threats about breaking people’s friendships with “Truth”. The Hacker has his own Twitter account too which was made out of an old WWE Twitter account.
Many fans are expecting Mustafa Ali to be the man behind this gimmick since the cryptic logos that flashed onto our screens during SmackDown resemble the lights on Ali’s gear. The Superstar’s absence from WWE TV for the past few months makes it all the more likely for him to be the Hacker.
However, according to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, there have been talks about the Hacker being two different people. The report notes that the Hacker could be both Mustafa Ali and a repackaged Shorty G.
Shorty G, just like Ali, has been missing from TV tapings for quite some time now. The fans never bought the “Shorty G” gimmick and so this could be a great opportunity for Chad Gable to reinvent himself.
