Former WWE Star Tries to Woo Elon Musk to Reverse Alleged Corruption Between Vince McMahon and Twitter

When one man controls an influential social media platform, he’s bound to receive desperate requests from several users. This is exactly what Elon Musk is facing after he purchased Twitter for $44 Billion.

As some WWE fans may know (at least after Ryback’s tweets on John Cena & Triple H on two seperate occasions), former WWE Superstar Ryback has his grievances against Twitter. He believes the social media platform restricted and limited his account based on nothing.

Additionally, he did a poll about whether or not he should return to WWE, and the maximum vote went towards his retirement.

At this point, he claimed that most accounts that participated in the poll were bot and fake accounts.

Keeping that aside, Ryback has been quick to blame Vince McMahon and WWE for using their power to influence Twitter. He strongly believes a corrupted relationship between Twitter and WWE led to the platform limiting his account.

Now, he wants Elon Musk to revert the restriction, and to coax Musk into taking his request seriously, he has an expensive ‘woo’ to offer. Ryback revealed he has placed an order for Tesla’s Cybertruck.

This particular invention has the utility of a truck coupled with the performance of a sports car.

Considering the Cybertruck project is Musk’s creation, this might be something to entice him to look into Ryback’s request.

Ryback should benefit from Elon Musk purchasing Twitter

The only reason Musk wanted to purchase Twitter was to enable free speech. He wanted to allow the users to use the platform to its ultimate potential. And, not have anyone curb any ideas or thoughts.

The critics have claimed that enabling free speech with lessened regulations will blur the fine line between free speech and hate speech or misinformation. This could have disastrous results for the users and the platform itself.

However, Musk has clarified that he wants to enable free speech which is within the law. There have been instances where Twitter limited accounts or deactivated them. Now, the Tesla CEO just wants to curb restriction which goes beyond the law.

Keeping Musk’s objective in mind, it’s enough to assume that if Elon Musk is successful in this venture, Ryback should be one of the people whose restricted account will finally be restored to his previous state.
