WWE Superstars have a high level of popularity, and the WWE has been taking advantage of this by having their Superstars leverage social media to engage fans. Unfortunately, Facebook has been making this very difficult for the WWE.
WWE Superstars have been reporting that their Facebook accounts are getting banned for impersonation. That’s right, wrestlers are being banned for impersonating themselves. This has not been an isolated incident effecting just a couple of superstars. Three WWE Superstars have come forward today to discuss getting banned.

It is certainly important for Facebook to be secure, and clearly they are trying to do the right thing. Due to their popularity, WWE Superstars are more likely to be impersonated than most of the population. As a matter of fact, there have been reports in the past of scammers pretending to be WWE Superstars in order to get unsuspecting WWE fans to give them Target gift cards, cash, or gifts.
Luke Gallows, Ariya Daivari, and Cedric Alexander are three of the WWE Superstars who have confirmed that their Facebook is disable. It seems as though Facebook may have gone too far in trying to keep their site secure this time.
We expect Facebook headquarters to resolve this in the near future. Fans love having an avenue to interact with WWE talent, and this is very discouraging for the WWE Universe.
