The Strange Detail Cobra Kai Fans Noticed About Miguel's Social Media

As fans of Cobra Kai have learned over the course of the show's three seasons, there are many sides of Miguel Diaz (Xolo Maridueña).

He's a complex hero. He's a bit of a nerd, though his time in the titular dojo proves his also a bit of a jock. That's part of why Miguel's training has Cobra Kai fans so puzzled. He's a caring friend who can also hold a long grudge against his rival, which perhaps explains what fans think is behind Robbie (Tanner Buchanan) and Miguel's beef. He's kind enough to return Mr. Miyagi's (Pat Morita) stolen Medal of Honor, but also capable of the cruelty required to target Robby's injured shoulder during the All-Valley tournament final. Miguel contains multitudes. 

But, as one Reddit poster pointed out, apparently there's a side of Miguel that the show's audience hasn't seen yet — at least, if a moment from the first season is to be trusted. The shot, a quick one in which he has tagged his then-girlfriend Samantha LaRusso (Mary Mouser) in a picture, reveals something about his past he hasn't mentioned, not to Johnny (who certainly wouldn't get it) or to anyone else on the show. 

Right there in the shot of his Twitter account, up there in the corner next to his name, is the little blue check that signifies his account is verified. Somebody thinks it's important that his followers know this is the real Miguel Diaz, and not someone impersonating him. Apparently, he's kind of a big deal.

How did Miguel get verified?

Of course, as one user pointed out, Miguel is kind of a big deal. "I mean he's the All Valley champ," wrote u/jaytrident. "That goes a long way in this universe. Unless you are Johnny and you lose your third."

Another commenter points out that this moment came from before the All-Valley tournament, however, leading to a thread wherein the commenters jokingly decided that Miguel must have gotten famous from the school fight video — the one from one of the best fights on Cobra Kai in which he beat up Kyler and his bullies in the cafeteria with an array of student cellphones pointed his way.

Seems like a stretch, but if not that, then what? What are the Cobra Kai writers hiding about Miguel's past? He lives in Southern California; is he a former child star? Popular video game streamer? Does he make his own hit unboxing videos, and if so, why hasn't he asked Johnny to do one with him? 

Until we get the answer in Cobra Kai season 4, your guess is as good as anyone's. Go wild.

Cobra Kai season 3 is now streaming on Netflix.
