Sasha Banks discussed Snoop Dogg and Ray J being her cousins on Impaulsive. Sasha said she didn’t find out Snoop Dogg was her cousin until she was 10, and that people didn’t believe her until Snoop treated her student friends at a concert to shirts and autographs. She said she would try to get Snoop on Impaulsive. She also mentioned that Ray J is her cousin.
AEW President Tony Khan recently sparked a new controversy when he sent out a Tweet. A series of tweets suggested that an independent study had shown that most of the anti-AEW community online was not real.
“An independent study has confirmed that much of the staunch anti-AEW online community aren’t real individuals, it’s a staff running thousands of accounts + an army of bots to signal boost them. Look closely, these aren’t real people. Who’d pay for such a *wildly* expensive thing?”

The fans took note of the Tweets and the former WWE RAW Women’s Champion Becky Lynch also noted it. ‘The Big Time Becks’ joined the conversation on social media. She made a mockery out of Khan’s tweet. The former RAW Women’s Champion joked that people who boo her in arenas are bots:
“An independent study confirmed that much of the staunch anti – Becky in arena booers aren’t real individuals, it’s a staff running thousands of A.I. – an army of bots! Look closely, these aren’t real people. Who’d pay for such a “wildly” expensive thing?”

Former WWE superstar Braun Strowman also roasted Khan for his hot take on AEW haters. At this point, pro wrestlers are just using Khan’s words and having fun with them.
Following the controversial Tweets, Wrestling Inc. reported that they reached out to Tony Khan for clarification on his tweet. They reported that Khan responded by giving examples to illustrate what he says his expert confirmed during their investigation.
“Waiting for final study but here’s what my expert confirmed,” Khan responded. “It’s people with real live accounts making posts and then using their bots to manipulate the social channel algorithm by backing them up with engagement from a made-up Twitter identity. Social media teams will often fight on this. Bots are great for numbers and when they’re gone, you’ll see a dip in digital conversation impressions – both those were either negative sentiment or not real anyway.
“For example, I tweet Megha only eats rotten bananas. I throw say 18 bots behind it (which takes about 5 minutes to do) Twitter security can’t differentiate when done well (neither can most social teams). The problem becomes, every time people type Megha into the search bar, because of a real account supported by bots- the first suggested result would be tweets about Megha eating rotten bananas. I’m oversimplifying, but that’s the 5 cent version of what’s happening.”
