February 9, 2015 was not the best of nights for Zahra Schreiber as the aspiring WWE Diva from Saginaw, Michigan was involved in a nude photo scandal.
Just before Raw went on the air on the USA Network, a nude photo of the heavily tattooed brunette was published simultaneously on the Instagram and Twitter accounts of WWE Superstar Seth Rollins. The image also appeared on the official WWE website, which features Twitter feeds of its performers. Although the image was quickly removed, it was saved by a number of fans and as a result, quickly circulated across social media.
Shortly thereafter, Rollins’ fiancée, Leighla Schultz, went on Twitter to share some risqué pictures of her own. The upset fiancée released pictures of Rollins’s exposed genitals through her own account on the micro-blogging platform, giving grappling fans an intimate glimpse of the surging WWE competitor. She also wrote “Zahara?,” misspelling the name of the WWE Superstar’s apparent mistress.
When a Twitter user said that Schultz couldn’t have really been the one that posted the nude photos of Rollins, she responded with assurance that she in fact did, saying, “I definitely did Hahahaha.”
Due to the nature of the images, Rollins released a statement on Twitter immediately after Raw to apologize to his friends, fans and family: “I would like to apologize to all the WWE fans and my family and friends for private photographs that were distributed without my consent.”
There does not appear to be any issues between Schreiber and Rollins following this embarrassing ordeal. While the WWE Superstar was away overseas touring Abu Dhabi, she ‘favorited’ a message he posted on Twitter about watching a movie.
February 15, 2015 – Monday night, Zahra Schreiber’s nude photo appeared on Seth Rollins’ Twitter account. The two WWE employees were rumoured to be having an affair, and now Zahra has posted her first subtle response to the matter.
“Because people love to talk about stuff they know nothing about #knownofacts,” she tweeted to a friend.
She also interacted with Rollins on Twitter while he was away in Abu Dhabi. She ‘favorited’ a tweet he posted about watching a movie. That suggests there’s no resentment between the two. WWE Fans can draw their own conclusions on anything else.
It is true what Zahra says, nobody really knows what has gone on. All that is known for sure is that Rollins’ fiancee posted a nude photo of Zahra on Rollins’ account. She then proceeded to post nude photos of Rollins on her own account. The speculation was that it was a revenge porn, with some suggesting that Rollins and Zahra were perhaps having an affair.
WWE aren’t planning on formally disciplining either Zahra or Rollins. However, you do have to wonder if this will hurt her chances of making it in the WWE. She’s still some way off of even appearing at an NXT show.
February 15, 2015 – This past week, WWE Superstar Seth Rollins was certainly the story that kept on coming. Rollins was not responsible directly for leaking the nude picture of WWE NXT Diva in training Zahra Schreiber. As we’ve heard by now, Rollins’ now potentially ex-fiancee leaked her picture and then posted a few nude pictures of Seth himself on her own account.
WWE knew that Rollins, who was working at the time the pictures leaked, didn’t do anything wrong. However, he probably did beforehand, which is why his fiancee leaked the pictures in the first place. One would surmise that she found out about a cheating issue and decided to make Rollins feel the same pain she felt.
Regardless, this could have cost Rollins his job with WWE. Triple H didn’t want anything to happen to Rollins. He is considered one of the best wrestlers in the world at this point. Triple H knows that Rollins is a gold mine for the future of WWE and he also knows that he typically doesn’t do anything wrong to harm the company.
Meanwhile Vince McMahon is by no means happy about the situation. Vince was not upset with Rollins as much as he was upset Zahra’s picture was on WWE.com for an extended period of time. WWE is a PG company, and having a nude picture of one of your developmental women is by no means good for business.
Vince is mainly upset at the entire situation, not at Rollins or Zahra. However, Zahra’s nude picture on the website was certainly the worst thing on WWE’s end of things.
Internally, this is considered a private matter and that everyone should respect Rollins in handling it himself.
