That's right folks, it appears we have another Twitter war on our hands.
As "The Show-Off" Dolph Ziggler took to Twitter Friday night with the following:
grabbing @schwarzenegger's book bc once i cash in my MITB World Title contract i'll study his workouts for the media & movies im offered😎— Dolph Ziggler (@HEELZiggler) October 5, 2012
To which The Governator replied:
Good luck with that and enjoy the book @heelziggler. Appreciate the support.— Arnold (@Schwarzenegger) October 5, 2012
Seems innocent enough, right?
Well guess again, things got heated pretty quick when Ziggler responded:
@schwarzenegger haha relax brother, i dont need luck & im not a fan, just a heads up, im on my way to being a much bigger STAR than you!— Dolph Ziggler (@HEELZiggler) October 5, 2012
@heelziggler It's going to take more than reading my book. You better memorize it. Then do curls with it. Then you'll be 1% of the way there— Arnold (@Schwarzenegger) October 5, 2012

Overall, I have to believe this war of words was staged. For starters, Schwarzenegger has history with the company. Back in 1999, Schwarzenegger was promoting his latest flick "End of Days". Part of the promotion included an appearance on SmackDown, where he received a replica WWE title and took to commentary for the main-event .
In case you missed it you can click here.
Since then, "The Terminator" took time off from movies and focused on a political career. Now, coincidentally he has a new book entitled "Total Recall"to promote and what easier way, than utilizing social media and getting involved in a Twitter was.
Not only is it a cheap way of advertising, but it gets people like me writing about it.
Another reason that I feel this is staged, was due to Schwarzenegger's responses. Not only were some of them witty, but he appeared to know who Ziggler was. Which to me is surprising, considering I highly doubt he is tuning in weekly to watch Raw or SmackDown.
Ultimately, real or not, as promised Arnold is back and could be in WWE TV to end this battle and of course promote. Who knows, he may even be on the short list of potential Social Media Ambassador's for the company.
In the end, this is all just speculation, so if nothing comes of it at least this hopefully made for some good content.
