The WWE has featured some pretty salacious storylines in the past, though even the creative minds behind the pro wrestling company would struggle to come up with something as controversial as what has happened in WWE Superstar Seth Rollins’, real name Colby Lopez, real life.
Last night while WWE RAW was live on air, Rollins’ Instagram account was seemingly hacked. Oddly, the alleged hack only saw one photo upload being made, with a naked image of Zahra Schreiber – a model/wrestler who is currently working in WWE’s NXT developmental branch – appearing on his profile, accompanied by the caption ‘Zahara Schreiber,’ a misspelling of the aspiring WWE Diva’s name.
This image was promptly removed (though not before it was screencapped and circulated around the far corners of the internet), accompanied by a statement from Rollins on his Twitter page that read:
“I would like to apologize to all the WWE fans and my family and friends for private photographs that were distributed without my consent.”
But it seems that rather than this being a hack orchestrated by an anonymous internet user a la “The Fappening,” the individual behind the uploading of the image was Rollins’ real-life fiancée Leighla Schultz, who following the uploading of the images of Zahra, promptly uploaded some images of her own. Under the caption ‘Zahara?’ Leighla uploaded two images to her own Twitter account of Rollins in the nude, thus sparking rumors that she was likely the culprit behind the entire batch of uploads, with Rollins having potentially cheated on her with Zahra that caused her to attack him online.
So far, so childish.
The rabbit hole went even deeper when Leighla took to her own Facebook page to post a few messages targeted towards Rollins, seemingly mocking the entire situation.
“I love you so much baby, I hate my life and my fiancée I just want to run away with you,” Leighla posted in a reply to one of her Facebook friends. “I can’t stop thinking about you and your sleepy voice. I fucking love you so much. You’re the best thing that has ever happened to me,” she continued, before deleting the messages (though again, not before they had been screencapped and spread over the likes of Twitter).
The WWE, which has made constant moves to be seen as a more PG-friendly company, will likely be weighing up their options at this moment in time and, even though Rollins wasn’t behind these image uploads, it could prove harmful to the future of his career.
The former member of the WWE’s popular Shield stable has been on the rise over the past few months, with him being inserted into a number of key feuds and recently stealing the show at the Royal Rumble pay-per-view in a match for the World Heavyweight Championship with John Cena and Brock Lesnar.
