    Things Lance Storm Dislikes

    Lance Storm is a Twitter enigma.

    Twitter allows us to get to know our favorite wrestlers on a more personal level. We get to see more than just their wrestling characters or athleticism as they beat each other up in their underwear. One of the interesting aspects is getting to see what the wrestlers you grew up watching likes or in this case dislikes. Enjoy as we learn more about Lance Storm and his interests as a person.

    Here are Things Lance Storm Dislikes:

    CHAPTER 1: WRESTLING

    Yes, we have chapters.

    Twitter Theater: Best of Joseph Park

    All the world’s a stage and pro wrestlers on Twitter are merely players.

    I’ve found that reading certain wrestlers interact on Twitter to be as fascinating as any form of entertainment so we had to put it all together with a ribbon and bow. Not literally. You get NO ribbons or bows. Sorry.

    Usually the Twitter Theater has been home to the tomfoolery side of wrestlers. This time, we go more serious and look at a great man. Joseph Park arrived to find his missing brother in early 2012 and he’s had to deal with hardships. We document his struggle dealing with adversaries who have a “bad case of the smarks” as I told Joseph and just celebrate the man, the myth, the lawyer as he embarks on his first Bound For Glory match this weekend.

    Act I: Park vs. Image

    Joey Image was an indie wrestler known for being a tool on Twitter. He was kind of the opposite of a cult hero in that not many people knew of him but most he interacted with would grow to strongly dislike him.

    Image tried making fun of Joseph Park by saying he got his own name wrong as it should be spelled “Parks.” Joseph replied:

    Image1

    Image tried backtracking. In true lawyer fashion, Joseph doesn’t let him off the hook.

    Image2

    In true bully fashion when confronted, Image tried to laugh it off by wordplay jokes. Don’t mess with Park, punks.

    Image3

    Image calls himself a “worker” and compares himself to Joseph’s missing brother, Chris….. you know Abyss?

    Image4

    To end the saga, Joseph Park sums up the thoughts of anyone who has ever had Twitter interactions with Joey Image:

    Awkward Moment of the Week: 24 Hours With Sunny

    Let’s be honest. Wrestling is weird. This a feature that highlights the pictures, videos, tweets and moments from the wrestling world that feels too weird to be true.

    This week’s awkward moment is 24 hours of Tammy “Sunny” Sytch’s Facebook statuses. With past Sunny social media making the awkward rounds, a reader suggested this be a follow up sequel. We couldn’t not oblige.

    Sunny1

    Going into a date with honorable intentions, Sunny finds some bad luck.

    Sunny2

    She just wants to meet her soulmate. Help the case of love, Celebreality TV!

    Sunny3

    Unfortunate situation but her play by play is stellar enough to make recently forced away retiree Jim Ross jealous.

    Twitter Theater: Kurt Angle vs. Wafi Wahidi

    All the world’s a stage and pro wrestlers on Twitter are merely players.

    I’ve found that reading certain wrestlers interact on Twitter to be as fascinating as any form of entertainment so we had to put it all together with a ribbon and bow. Not literally. You get NO ribbons or bows. Sorry.

    Today, we look at the greatness that was Angle vs. Wahidi. There’s no way to give these two a worthy introduction so we’re gonna jump right in!

    Act I: When Kurt Met Wafi

    Angle1

    The story starts with Kurt Angle simply wanting to talk to Wafi Wahidi. Kurt gets off on the wrong foot by spelling Wafi’s name incorrectly. Would Wafi take this lightly?

    Angle2

    Kurt now spells his own twitter name (at the time, AngleFoods1) incorrectly. I want to believe Wahidi demanded this in their business relationship agreement. Call him back, Wafi! Continue reading

    Twitter Theater: Hulk Hogan

    All the world’s a stage and pro wrestlers on Twitter are merely players.

    I’ve found that reading certain wrestlers interact on Twitter to be as fascinating as any form of entertainment so we had to put it all together with a ribbon and bow. Not literally. You get NO ribbons or bows. Sorry.

    The first wrestler – Hulk Hogan. Arguably the biggest star in wrestling history. Clearly the biggest star in Earth history in his own mind. These are the tweets that make him the Hulk Hogan we all know and “love”.

    Act I: Be Cool, Eat Fruit

    This all came to fruition (we DO love wordplay) when Scott Steiner was destroying Hulkster and Eric Bischoff on Twitter. Hogan appeared on an ESPN TV spot and uttered the words “be cool and eat fruit” to end the interview, which Scott gleefully made fun of:

    aaasteiner

    This was hilarious but Steiner said so many great things, we didn’t have the time to properly process this quote. Hogan says crazy things constantly, so one would assume it was on his wacky mind at the time and he said it once.

    WRONG.

    After doing some research, it was discovered that Hulk made a concentrated effort to cement this as his new catchphrase. What follows is proof, as he finds a way to wrench it into countless Twitter conversations.

    Exhibit A:

    hogantwitter2

    Given the friendly, welcoming attitude Hulk was famous for in the 90s, I can easily buy “don’t speak until spoken through” (or “don’t speak until spoken to”, as everyone else on the planet Earth would say) being his words of advice to the vanilla midg… WCW undercard he shared a locker room with. However, we also see his love of cool cats eating fruit start to rival that. Continue reading
