UPDATE: WWE Hall of Famer Teddy Long released a video explaining the situation on his account being hacked and blocking people, which you can see below:

“Hey, what’s up players? WWE Hall of Famer Teddy Long. Just wanted to get on here this morning and let everybody know, I’m here at LA Fitness, my second home, somebody hacked my Twitter account, I have no idea who it was. I think it was somebody that I blocked that was mad because I blocked them, and then they wanted to hack my s*** and block everybody else. Well, I want to thank him because the first thing they did was they got me trending. This is like the third time I’ve ever been trending. So that tells me, ‘Teddy Long, you still got it.’ But let me explain this to you, players, I didn’t block anybody. Like I said, it might have been that person that hacked me, I might have blocked him, and you can see why I blocked him. My Twitter is verified, so I didn’t block anybody. So, I don’t want y’all mad at me, so I’ll be coming next week we’ll talk further about this. I’ll be doing maybe a couple of podcasts and we’ll be talking more about it. But I didn’t block anybody, so I’m letting you all know, it was not me. Players, I love all of y’all!”

ORIGINAL: Teddy Long blocked a sizable portion of the wrestling world on Twitter after his account was possibly hacked. Saturday night saw the WWE Hall of Famer’s Twitter account block a ton of people including Taz, Saraya, Renee Paquette, Britt Baker, Joe Gacy, Cheeseburger, Santos Escobar, Sammy Guevara, and more. Many of the stars posted to Twitter expressing confusion about the situation, as you can see below.

Brian Hebner, who is a friend of Long’s, posted to his account to note that Long has been hacked, writing:

Guys relax. His shot got hacked. I’m blocked too. And he is my Homie.

As of now, Long’s account has gone private.
