When Scott Steiner, who has wrestled for WCW as well as TNA wrestling tweeted
that he was at Shoney's To Go in Buford Georgia for the restaurant's grand opening Eric Bischoff responded by tweeting "@ScottSteiner 50+ year old man pitching greasy fried chicken in Buford and wrestling Indy's in front of 250 fans...bitter?" Bischoff then went on to re-tweet several derogatory comments in reference to Steiner by other followers including some calling Steiner a drug addict.
However it hasn't taken long for Steiner to respond to Bischoff according to Pro Wrestling News
, the 49-year-old Steiner commented over the weekend calling Bischoff derogatory names and making references to his testimony in the Atlanta Gold's Club trial.
In 2001 CNN reported
that Federal prosecutors alleged that strip club owner Steve Kaplan was connected to New York's Gambino crime family and had been paying dancers to have sexual relations with athletes in order to raise the club's profile. In late July of 2001 Bischoff testified
that he had visited the strip club with a wrestling associate, entering the club's VIP section and engaging in sexual trysts with a stripper named Jana Pelnis. Bischoff went on to state that on a second occasion he took his wife with him and she engaged in sexual relations with Pelnis. Bischoff testified that on both occasions someone else had flipped the bill for the sexual liaison's.
Steiner went on to state on twitter that Eric Bischoff's testimony "show's what a weasel he is," according to Pro-Wrestling News. In response to his appearance at Shoney's Steiner offered this explanation, "Let me educate you on Shoney's, first off this wasn't a paid appearance, I was there on behalf of my friend of 18-years who purchased the Shoneys Brand 6-years ago for around $300 million, and its no longer a greasy fast food joint as you suggest. You would have known this if you ever went to the TNA offices because Shoney's corporate offices are also in Nashville."
Steiner went on to say that Bischoff needs to worry about the crowds attending TNA events alleging the wrestling company gives tickets away for free to boost attendance.
