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)

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:
