Isn’t that what wrestling is about? Being a WWE wrestler is a complicated situation. While you get to travel the world and be a professional athlete at the same time, you also have to maintain your character in front of the fans and make them believe what you’re presenting. This isn’t the easiest thing in the world, but what if you’re good enough at it to fool one of the biggest websites in the world?
A trio of WWE wrestlers have announced that their Facebook pages have been disabled due to the three of them impersonating themselves. Cedric Alexander, Luke Gallows and Ariya Daivari have all said that Facebook has disabled their accounts because the three of them are not their real selves. This is a problem that does happen as people will open fake accounts to pose as celebrities to cheat fans out of money. All three accounts have since been restored.
So …… @facebook disabled my account because I was "impersonating" myself……..?

Even though he hasn’t been on television, Alexander can still go. Check out one of his 205 Live gems:
Gallows can still be intimidating. Check out him wanting a match earlier this year:
Daivari has had a rather nice year for himself. Check out him headlining a recent show:
Opinion: I guess you would say well done? The problem has since been rectified, but that’s quite the situation to be in. The three of them did nothing wrong and thankfully the problem has been taken care of in a hurry. Still though, it’s quite the ordeal as it might not be the easiest thing in the world to prove that you are yourself. If nothing else, at least they can prove that they know how to fool people.
Which of these three has the brightest future? Will Alexander ever be a champion in WWE again? Let us know in the comments below.
