Hello and welcome back to the Insanity's on-going coverage of Wrestlers in Social Media, #FollowTheTweeter , and yes, it's now written as a hashtag because that's how you do things in the Twitterverse.  Now let's get this thing trending worldwide, already!

If you had a chance to listen to my latest audio, you may recall that I mentioned WSU and ACE pro Wrestling announcer, Jon Harder, and his War of Words via Social Media with Denver Colorado of Beyond Wrestling, a spat allegedly caused when Colorado banned ACE Pro Talent from a recent Beyond Wrestling show.  Well, here's the post that supposedly kicked off the exchange -


And here's Harder and Colorado going at it via Twitter -


And here is a video from ACE Pro Wrestler, JT Dunn, on the subject -



Work?  Shoot? Work/Shoot?  You Decide!

Apparently, WWE Diva AJ Lee has a hard time convincing people that she's a professional wrestler...



Did you know Chris Jericho was a Madonna fan?  After all of his blathering on about 80's-Style Power Metal, you wouldn't think so.  You'd also be wrong -



Seems there was some controversy surrounding the decision of Nick Diaz vs. Carlos Condit at UFC 143.  For more on the situation (pun possibly intended), here's WSU's own Becky Bayless...


It turns out some other guy had something to say about this fight, too.  Some no-named Punk you've never heard of...



Fun With Jay Briscoe!



As you may know from the near-2 years I spent covering TNA, I have something of a love/hate relationship when it comes to Eric Bischoff.  On one hand, he can be a great TV character, playing an overbearing, arrogant jerk who looks down on just about everyone he ever encounters.  On the other hand, that's pretty much who Bischoff is in real life, as well.  Anyone who's ever come across his many condescending internet posts, on subjects ranging from what he thinks of the common Internet fan (he hates you), his political beliefs (he hates Liberals), or what he thinks of people in general (he hates almost everyone, really), will pick up on this right away.  But, for once, this past week, in fact, I finally came across a Facebook post of his that is almost positive and complimentary...


And even here, he still comes off like a condescending prick.  Seriously, the guy can not for the life of him turn that personality trait off.

Speaking of condescending pricks, guess who else can't turn that personality trait off?  Yep, it's Mr. Anderson... Anderson...


Even when the guy has a point, he still comes off like a jerk.  Why does TNA want me to cheer for this guy, again?

Meanwhile, Kurt Angle, who is supposedly still serious about training for the 2012 Olympics, had a bit of a strange exchange with Samoa Joe this past week over his training regiment -


That is, when Kurt isn't wondering why referees have T-shirts...


It's times like this where I really do believe Kurt only tweets when he's drunk. 

Speaking of people in TNA, Christopher Daniels finally got his Twitter account verified, a trend that's grown in TNA since I stopped covering it last year.  Not sure what that means, other than someone in TNA finally convinced Twitter that their wrestlers were actually real, but then again, that's probably a very big accomplishment these days.



This past month, Indy Wrestlers Rain and April Hunter held a contest for Charity....


For the record, no, I did not enter.  I'd have honestly been too embarrassed to say anything on said "date" if I actually did mange to win. 

Portia Perez on... Twitter



Seems that no-named Punk who had to talk about UFC 143 also decided to talk some smack about Steve Austin, too -


Can't imagine what this guy is thinking.  I mean, it's not like he's a major star or anything.  Not like this guy...



Johnny Gargano, the current Open the Freedom Gate Champion, has had a lot of free time, recently.  Since he injured his back at EVOLVE 10, he's been slowly but surely recovering.  In the meantime, he's had a lot of time to interact with his fans via social media, including this bit...



You remember that John Morrison guy?  Apparently, he won a new belt recently...



It's YouTube Promo Time!  Today's promo comes courtesy of Jessicka Havok, who's taken Mercedes Martinez' advice, and gone back to Wrestling School to learn how to work...



Our next YouTube Promo comes to us courtesy of Canada's ECCW, introducing the new stable, the RIOT -


Indy Star Veda Scott has a bone to pick with you...



Meanwhile, Wade Barrett would like to share a quote with you -



Then, of course, we have this instance of Saraya Being Saraya...



And now, the latest episode of the Z! True Long Island Story, which is now being carried by the WWEFanNation channel for some reason...
