Who says pro wrestling is fixed? For one, an online fan who claims to have "inside information" and has correctly predicted the last 38 World Wrestling Entertainment matches, sparking an Internet manhunt for the user's true identity on Reddit.

If the user leaks WWE results before they happen, not only does it embarrass the organization, but it can also damage the "sports entertainment" industry in gambling circles, The Independent reported.

The user, known on Reddit as Dolphin1925, has commented only on WWE matches, making the person difficult to track.

Ironically, Dolphin1925 commented that he or she has posted winners in an attempt to get WWE tostop leaking who will win.

"I am just a WWE fan, and I am getting my information from a source who has VERY credible inside information," Dolphin1925 told The Independent. "We both feel that I should continue to share this information until it garners the attention of WWE ... These people whom are leaking this information are profiting off it at the expense of the WWE, the fans and the integrity of the product. I am hoping to put an end to WWE insiders leaking PPV outcomes."

On Monday, WWE made light of the situation in a statement to Deadspin.

"We may have a modern day Nostradamus on our hands. We might have to monitor these posts in advance of our next pay-per-view to see how good he or she really is," the statement read.

Dolphins1925 joined the social news website’s pro wrestling forum r/SquaredCircle in February to take part in a "prediction series" that another Reddit user started. In the forum, users predicted the winners of the pay-per-view television wrestling event "Elimination Chamber."

Jay Busbee of Yahoo Sports said the information can be valuable for increasing gambling interest in WWE. 

"WWE prizes secrecy and you've got to figure that there will be some attempt to unmask either Dolphins1925 or the leaker, if in fact they're two separate people," Busbee wrote on the Yahoo Sports blog "The Turnstile." "And it'll probably end in a cage match, which is how all disputes should be resolved. Gambling on the WWE would seem to be a ridiculous proposition, but it does happen, with bets capped at low limits precisely because something like this could occur."
