It has been a month since the WWE fans last saw a promo regarding the SmackDown hacker.
There was a sense of excitement when the WWE universe first saw a hacker on SmackDown.
The hacker was seen spying on everyone on the roster.
Otis and Mandy were the first people to appear on the Hacker’s radar. At that time, their relationship was infested by huge misunderstandings.
However, it was the SmackDown hacker who revealed the truth to Mandy Rose and brought them together.
The mystery hacker was seen multiple times and was featured in some crucial segments.
However, the most interesting aspect which showed that the company was taking the storyline seriously, was when the hacker started featuring even on the WWE Network shows.
Be it shows like Ride Along where two superstars travel together, backstage interviews or podcasts, the hacker had his eyes on everyone.
However, since the last update from the Mystery hacker on May 28th, we haven’t seen or heard from him.
It’s June 28th. It has now officially been one whole month since the #SmackDown Hacker last tweeted.

The hacker was mentioned by Sasha Banks and Bayley during this week’s edition of Raw in a backstage segment.
The Boss nagged Dolph Ziggler when the latter tried to play coach to the female tag champs.
Banks reminded Ziggler of how the hacker screwed him over on SmackDown. This was a reference to the Ziggler, Otis, Mandy Rose, and Sonya Deville storyline.

There are many possibilities for this story. The first possibility is not something positive and is in the form of some bad news.
The Mystery Hacker last communicated in any form one month ago.
This is around the same time Paul Heyman was fired as head of storylines and promotions.
Another possibility for this rivalry is that the superstar who is the mystery hacker ( CM Punk’s name also propping up in rumors), may have pulled out for some time.
Many WWE employees and talents like Renee Young, Kayla Braxton, and Jamie Noble have tested positive for COVID-19.
Keeping health first, the mystery hacker may be revealed once the COVID-19 threat decreases.Can we harbour the CM Punk dream again?
CM Punk returned to the professional wrestling conversation through an analyst’s role at WWE Backstage on Fox.
That’s why the rumors regarding his return have again started surfacing.
CM Punk is a no-nonsense man and the theme of the mystery hacker is to reveal the truth.
Hence, it is not surprising that people are expecting it to be CM Punk. After all, who can forget the explosive pipe bomb promo?
The third and final possibility could be related to the hype that has been created.
WWE may want to reveal this storyline on-air when the world is back to normal, and the audience can fill the arenas.

So far, AEW has not reported a single COVID-19 case and has been clean since the beginning of the pandemic. The meticulous safety procedures and testing have ensured that the work environment is the safest.
WWE on the other hand has had a nightmare. A couple of weeks ago, WWE announced that a “developmental talent” had tested positive for the virus. They began testing all employees immediately and put all episode tapings on hold.
After testing was complete, they resumed the tapings and carried on with business. However, we later found out that more Superstars had caught the virus.
Kayla Braxton, Jamie Noble, and Renee Young are among the prominent names in WWE that have announced on Twitter that they have tested positive for the virus.AEW has been fairing better than WWE in terms of dealing with the pandemic
The tally of cases in WWE has now reached 30, which is alarmingly high for the business. If the situation gets any worse, WWE may have to take a break until everything cools over.
An asset to WWE is the willing cooperation of its Superstars and backstage employees who show up to work despite the risk.
AEW takes this opportunity to fire another shot at WWE through the Taz segment. Jon Moxley’s attendance in AEW will be up for questioning now that his wife, Renee Young of WWE has tested positive.
This could affect the storyline quite a bit. Taz not so subtly hints out at AEW’s safety procedures compared to WWE by telling Moxley that they don’t run a sloppy shop.
Turning the spotlight to Brian Cage, Taz wants Moxley to face him and is confident that Cage will prevail in the fight.
Taz must not add insult to injury however as he will have a lot of talking to do if an AEW employee tests positive. We can only hope that the safety procedures taken are enough to keep AEW safe throughout the time of the pandemic.
