I’m a lifelong wrestling fan who now watches less than two hours a week. I’m the "casual smart mark" and I'd like to welcome you to
Casually Twittering About (if you can come up with a better name, by all means let me know).
It’s a pretty simple concept, really...I scour Twitter (hey... you can find me HERE …you know you want to!) looking for anything interesting or bizarre from the world of wrestling. Trust me when I say this: you think wrestlers are weird INSIDE of the ring??? Heh...just check out what I've found for you in the last few weeks!
AL SNOW LAME JOKE OF THE WEEK (part one)
GOLDUST IS (PROBABLY) DRUNK TWEET OF THE WEEK (part one)
It seems as though Christian has been thoroughly enjoying himself on Twitter since joining a couple of weeks ago. What’s more is that he seems to have been having a bit of fun at Zack Ryder’s expense:
As many of you may know, I’ve always been a fan of Ring of Honor. However, they’ve been having a tough time trying to stay competitive on a national scale without having a huge money-backer to help them out. One of the things they have begun doing is really one of the coolest fan-friendly give-aways I can think of. I mean, if you want your fans to respond in this day and age, this is probably the best way to do it...
And the winner was...
Very cool, ROH. Well done.

Dude...that's just creepy as f*ck.
Hey…ever wanted to see WWE diva Eve topless? Yeah...that's what I thought. Well guess what, kids? ZAH is your hook-up…
Yeah, I know...lame.
Not nearly as lame, however, as TNA tag team dude Max Buck (from Generation Me). I don’t know what’s worse…his taste in beverages or his taste in phone ringtones. How 'bout YOU decide:
Miley f*ckin' Cyrus as your ringtone?? Daaaaaaaaamn...

No thanks, but I appreciate you at least asking me first.
I'm concerned about Gregory “Hurricane” Helms. I think that he might be taking this whole superhero gimmick a little too far. I mean…Hurricane vs. Giant Robot?
AL SNOW LAME JOKE OF THE WEEK (part three)
I really wasn’t sure what Jay Lethal was thinking when he made this tweet…
I mean seriously, Jay…I know you’re a fan of Ric Flair and all…but seriously? That's just really odd. Flair looks like the Crypt Keeper now. But whatever floats your boat, I suppose.
Of course, he followed that up with a picture:
Ahhh…makes PERFECT sense now. Heh...Disney. Oops...sorry for jumping to conclusions.
Sometimes I wonder why anybody would feel the need to watch TNA Impact if they didn’t have to. Apparently, Chris Jericho found a reason:
You noticed the time between tweets. Just sayin'.

THE DENNIS STAMP CLASSIFIED AD OF THE WEEK:
Y'know, sometimes it’s a bit difficult to understand somebody’s accent when they’re from another country. Other times, one can be happy to know that the person with the accent at least knows how to write in English.
Then again…other times one can be EXTREMELY HAPPY to know that the person with the accent can write just a LITTLE bit of English…
Kids, that tweet was one word away from being the greatest tweet of all time.
ODB IS (PROBABLY) DRUNK TWEETS OF THE WEEK
Yeah...weiners...I can just imagine. So I read this tweet from Tommy Dreamer and just had to chuckle. It’s one of those things that most fans probably don’t think about too often. But can you just imagine this scene?
AL SNOW LAME JOKE OF THE WEEK (part five)
Sometimes people don’t want to admit that they’re getting old. This is especially true in wrestling (**cough cough**Ric Flair**cough cough). And HBK actually has been trying to cover-up his receding hairline for years now.
It’s good to know that he has finally come to terms with his age:

Sonjay Dutt simply doesn't know how to tweet...
No...seriously...dude's got NO CLUE on what Twitter is for:
undefined undefined undefined
undefined undefined undefined undefined
Goddamn, Sonjay…what the hell is wrong with you?
AL SNOW LAME JOKE OF THE WEEK (part six)
Now, if you want to learn how to tweet something that’s at least interesting (regardless of whether it’s true or not), just check out the following tweets by “Stone Cold” Steve Austin:
And seriously...if anybody knows what the hell he's talking about here, DON'T tell me because I'll have to respect you a little bit less than I do now.
Finally, a little lesson for all your tweeters out there.
I see guys intentionally tweeting things in an effort to get a response (good or bad) from wrestlers. Some of these things are pretty mean and others are downright brutal. I gotta be honest, I'm not a big fan of that nonsense.
A little while back, I saw the Ezekiel didn’t want to be bothered while working out at the gym. Me being the smart-ass that I am, I thought I’d make fun over the fact that he’d even get RECOGNIZED, much less bothered:
Here I was being all proud of myself for acting like a douche. Not a major douche, mind you...but just a smart-ass. Much to my surprise, though, Big Zeke tweeted back…
Well dammit…what he says actually makes sense. Now I felt all stupid for trying to be a smart-ass. So I tweeted him back again (only half-douchey):
And then much to my surprise again, he tweeted back one more time…
So here I am to say: Ezekiel Jackson…I appreciate the job that you’re doing as you rehab your way back to the WWE. I’m sorry for trying to be a douchebag when it wasn’t necessary. Thank you for being a man in your replies.
And a lesson to all you twitterers out there…stop acting like douchebags. It’s just not cool.
…unless you’re making fun of Eli Cottonwood, then it’s all good.
