Is JBL Behind The 'Cranky Vince' Twitter Account Or Is He Being Framed?

We've been following the hilarious saga over the last couple years involving the Twitter parody account located at The account has been a riot, posting over accentuated Tweets of the Mr. McMahon character, sometimes even revealing things confidential in nature.

In June 2012, I reported the account was believed to be ran by a former WWE wrestler with strong ties to the company. I've posted several stories about Vince McMahon and company management going to great lengths to find out who is behind the account. We might have got our first public clue of the account's identity 15 minutes into this week's episode of Monday Night Raw.

The following Tweet was posted by both Cranky Vince (located at and JBL (located at at 7:15 PM CDT (the local time of San Antonio, Texas, the location of this week's Raw)

Cranky JBL?!?

The Tweet was immediately deleted from Cranky Vince's timeline but still remains on JBL's as seen below:

JBL has since gone on the defensive, blocking anyone implicating him to the account. He Tweeted this:

Has the mystery of Cranky Vince been solved or is someone trying to frame JBL? Someone call Scooby-Doo and the Mystery Machine!

    Sure looks like JBL accidentally screwed himself.

  • Mysterion

    I actually really like the lightheartedness of this article. I hope like hell whoever it is, JBL or not, keeps posting. His story before WM28 about swimming from Cuba to Miami was a riot. Then again, it’s not like JBL is a known rib artist or anything is it! Haha. Screws my guess of it being Billy Kidman.

    • Bob’s Diner

      I wasn’t even aware of this until now! So disappointed I have been missing out

      • Mysterion

        It’s often brilliant. Sometimes a bit bland.

  • King A sshole

    I bet it’s Ric Flair. That’d be a great storyline. After all, he is Cranky to begin with.

  • Borgi83

    This will setup to an epic match Vince vs jbl at Mania

  • Scott Davies

    I always thought it was Goldust. When he got released last time I noticed the tweets stopped.

  • Kevin Taylor

    Pretty sure JBL self-incriminated himself. Either way, keep the Cranky posts coming.

  • Tyler

    I don’t think it’s just one person.

  • Lebron James

    Definitely JBL. The jig is up.
