Welcome back to the Insanity's on-going coverage of Wrestlers in Social Media,
You know what? I'm not even going to try and be remotely clever about this. This past weekend, Shane Douglas raped the corpse of ECW one more time and presented
Extreme Reunion in Philadelphia. On the one hand, you could say the show was extremely successful, drawing well over 2000 paying fans to the event, a pretty impressive number in today's independent scene. On the other, the show was, at best, an incredible train wreck that likely killed the promotion Shane Douglas was hoping to build right out the gate, ultimately screwing those 2000 paying fans out of the show they were promised by a man that, in an interview with James Guttman on ClubWWI over a year and a half ago, was dressing down TNA and Dixie Carter in particular because he felt TNA was conning the ECW fans.
Oh, don't take my word for it. Check out what Luke Hawx, one of the guys who actually worked the
Extreme Reunion show, had to say about the disaster this past weekend -
Hell, even other wrestling promoters were weighing in on the issue, as you can see here in this exchange between DGUSA Vice President Gabe Saplosky and WSU founder Sean McCaffery -
Mike Johnson of PWInsider.com wrote a piece on the
Extreme Reunion disaster that I'd recommend. Anyone who is honestly interested in seeing any future
Extreme Reunion shows should read THIS before spending any money on tickets, DVDs, or other related merchandise.
In lighter news, you may recall a few weeks back how
Will & Grace star Sean Hayes trashed WWE on Conan after Hayes and fellow
Three Stooges stars Will Sasso and Chris Diamantopoulos had a rather disastrous appearance on RAW. In fact, here's a clip -
So, of course, WWE fans on Twitter immediately lose their sh*t and begin trolling Hayes. Sean then offers up this apology via his Twitter -
TNA Knockout Tara tweeted this recently after a visit with her mother -
Speaking of TNA, reading this tweet by Jesse Sorenson just makes me very, very uncomfortable. For those who may not remember, Jesse Sorenson broke his neck in a match with Zema Ion on a TNA PPV earlier this year. TNA, for some reason, has tried turning this into an angle between the two, betting on Sorenson's return to the ring, despite his brush with near-death, and unfortunately, Jesse is apparently going to push the angle on occasion via his Twitter.
On a much lighter subject, it appears that AJ Lee now wants to be credited as a Former World Champion -
Did you realize that Earl Hebner has now refereed over 100,000 matches in his career? Austin Aries did -
Hulk Hogan jumped on his Twitter recently to try and convince us all that he's serious about making Impact Wrestling a real player in the Sports Entertainment World, brother. You know, the same sh*t he's always pedaling...
Hey, it's Colt Cabana, in Japan! Yay wrestling!
Open the Freedom Gate Champion Johnny Gargano apparently has a somewhat persistent stalker...
Someone may want to let the Hurricane know his tweets made the sheets, again. That is, if we actually qualify as a "sheet" considering we don't actually report news and all...
Some may be wondering, after the events of the past week concerning the Bella Twins and why they were given a Divas' Title Run on their way out of WWE, where the hell Kharma is. This tweet will probably not answer that question, one bit -
Speaking of Allison Danger, here's an exchange between her and Cheerleader Melissa. If you've never seen the Allison Danger shoot DVDs produced by Strong Style Productions, this tweet may be lost on you. All you really need to know is that, if you ever find yourself sleeping next to Melissa, she has a tendency to be rather "handsy"...
Zack Ryder has created a monster...
Hey, Shannon Moore is cutting his hair! Why? Because he feels like it -
Here's a little nightmare fuel for you: former WWE Diva Amy Weber (she was a member of JBL's Cabinet during his WWE Title run) is now a chart-topping pop singer in the UK. No, seriously, she is. Here's the music video -
And, finally, here's a message from Resistance Pro star, the Almighty Shiek -
Check out what the Insanity Staff has been saying on Twitter, lately...
