When micro-blogging site Twitter first emerged, it was embraced by a lot of celebrities and professional entertainers to give the â€œAll Exposedâ€ view of their lives. A great idea really, Twitter tells the fans a bit more about the person, not the brand. It is a great idea and well done to Twitter. However over the last year to 2 years it has revolutionised our industry and in my opinion, ruined it slightly.
Online rumours have been a massive part of the IWC and so have forum boards. This kept the IWCâ€™s opinions to itself but now, we can just tweet or facebook someone like Eric Bischoff and they get to read it. Not always a good idea as sometimes opinions are a bit dumb and the dumb ones for some reason get read out (Whether EB is keeping the good ones to one side for ideas I donâ€™t know).
Iâ€™ve been guilty of this, while watching shows I tweet along what Iâ€™m thinking. Sometimes I tweet stuff thatâ€™s a little bit dumb like â€œJeff Jarrett should dieâ€. Now what I meant was â€œI wish JJ would retire and get off this showâ€ but due to my intake of THC at that time, the vocabulary just wasnâ€™t there. Twitter doesnâ€™t have emotion, just raw statements. Now here in England, as Iâ€™m sure all my transatlantic cousins know have a very sarcastic sense of humour and we rip into each other for fun. Well I had a little bit of a pop at Jeremy Borash the other day. Nothing much, just a rib about how I think he got to where he was today:
@RegalRotherham: Somewhere in the world, @JeremyBorash is choosing which bit of @EBischoff to kiss next
Now, I thought that Mr Borash, the professional that he is would simply ignore this, but instead I got a DM (Direct Message for non-tweeters):
You really need to work on trying to be a better dick. You aren't even good at that.
Now, would you see any of WWEâ€™s staff rising to that? The original tweet was quite mild compared to some that Iâ€™ve read about TNA. In fact compared to a number of them, its complementary that Iâ€™m not actually ripping into their product. Anyway, hereâ€™s how the rest of it went:
i got a dm from @JeremyBorash calling me a dick. Very professional. I wonder if @TNADixie knows what classless low lives work for her
Keep trying. You aren't even a good asshole. Whaaaaaah.... I got called a dick
Hey, im just having an opinion. If you were anything near the professional you claim to be, you would have just ignored it. touch a nerve?
I wonder if @JeremyBorash is abusing any other (Now former#TNA) fans today because he has no sense of humour. That and he does all his dirty work via DM's rather than making it public banter #weak
Where was the funny part
@JeremyBorash There wasn't a funny part. I was just wondering if you had lost any more #TNA fans today?
You said I had no sense of humor. Tell me what was the funny part of your message
@JeremyBorash The intense sarcasm of you being a suck up character. You know nothing of British humour
Alienating a fan? The shit you've written about me and TNA hardly qualifies you as a fan. I have no problem alienating haters.
Gonna block you now out of total boredom of your idiocy. Hope you've enjoyed this attention.
I would just like to look at one part of that, and that part is â€œAlienating a fan? The shit you've written about me and TNA hardly qualifies you as a fan. I have no problem alienating hatersâ€ â€“ I never said I was a hater. I, until this all went down was an avid viewer of TNA both iMPACT and PPVâ€™s. Our DVD purchases and Merchandise buys pay this guys wages. Well I can guarantee that this Wrestling fan will no longer watch, follow, listen to, read about or even think of TNA Wrestling.
Iâ€™m sure thereâ€™s a bunch of comments going to appear here with the words â€œYou Got Ownedâ€ and in fairness, because I made a dumb comment a while ago heâ€™s got that ammo. But my point is that because 1 person in an organization that is well known for its public image is unprofessional enough to not ignore a blatant jibe and to stoke the fire, their numbers and more importantly dollars are down by 1. I wonder if all TNA Twitter users have a pop at him, will they all get the same treatment as I did?
