It appears that former WWF Champion Sid "Vicious" Eudy is not a big fan of current WWE Diva Ariane "Cameron" Andrew, even taking to his official Twitter account to slam the star.
Vicious, who was a major name in both the WWF and WCW during the '90s, noted to his followers that he wasn't interested in watching the E! reality show Total Divas and then aimed some harsh remarks at Cameron. He dismissed her talents and indicated he didn't think she was long for the business.
@WWECameron Of course you don't know who I am because you don't know the history of our business.— SID (@SychoVicious) August 15, 2013
When I was coming up in the business I quickly learned to respect those who made the way before me. @WWECameron doesn't know about that.— SID (@SychoVicious) August 15, 2013
For her part, Cameron responded to his remarks and accused the star of underestimating her.
@SychoVicious that's where you wrong! That was your way of saying hello so that was me just giving you a hello back! :)— Ariane Andrew (@WWECameron) August 15, 2013
She then wrote, "S- I feel so honored that you took the time out of your day to remind me how far I have come! Started from the bottom now I'm here!!!"
It's not terribly surprising that a veteran like Vicious wouldn't be a fan of Cameron or the show she appears in.
Indeed, it's probably inevitable a girl like Cameron garners criticism in the industry—especially when we consider she came into the business as a clueless contestant on 2011's edition of Tough Enough.
It was obvious to anyone watching that the newcomer was brought in her for good looks rather than her wrestling skills.
Indeed, the hilarious clip in which exasperated head coach Steve Austin asked her what her favorite match was and she named the classic Alicia Fox vs. Melina match has now become infamous. It may even have defined her forever.
Regardless of how hard the 25-year-old works (in fairness, she has actually gotten much better as an in-ring worker), it's possible she will always be considered a vapid model who knows nothing about the industry and is only in WWE for the fame and money.
That said, while Cameron may not exactly be popular, you have to question Vicious going around and deliberately picking fights with people on the current roster. Doesn't he have better things to do with his time? He's coming off as more than a little petty here.
Update: Has Cameron, as well as the rest of us, been fooled? This Twitter account claims to be the real Sid and insists he would never say such things. If that's true, the Diva has been getting into a war of words with a fake account.
