It seems the war of words between the WWE and Glenn Beck is nowhere near being done. Despite Beck turning down the WWE's offer to appear on Raw, Vince and company continue to push the topic.

Ricardo Rodriguez, the personal ring announcer for WWE World champion Alberto Del Rio, has taken to Twitter to try to keep the pressure on Beck to appear.

He posted the following on his personal Twitter account:

Glen Beck said what? Huevos! Doesn't he have to go cry about some stupid post? I have some Vicks if you need it, SEÑOR!

In a series of other tweets, he wrote:

Orale @GlennBeck! You seem to know about our world so much! Te invito panson a nuestro mundo? What different language? Don't get scared! It's cool @GlennBeck! I'll go easy on you, I know how sensitive you are. "I'm already booked"?! Huevos! Yeah sure, buddy! This is probably the most people have riled up for @glennbeck! You're welcomed for being famous again burro! #ignorance

All of this comes after the WWE posted two different videos of Zeb Colter and Jack Swagger. One is a straightforward challenge to Beck to appear on Raw; the other is a longer version of the first, which includes Colter and Swagger breaking character to show how they are entertainers.

Obviously, it is hard to tell whether Rodriguez is responding in character or is truly upset over Beck's comments about wrestling fans being stupid. But it doesn't matter. The WWE has touched upon a hot topic and many conservative websites and news programs have taken notice of the Colter angle.

By continuing to prod Beck to appear, even after he's said no, it keeps the story in the news and keeps people talking. This is exactly what the WWE wants and needs heading into WrestleMania. Nothing creates compelling television like good characters and controversy.
