In a move that could mark the end of Scott Steiner's two decade plus reign as a mainstream wrestler, the multi-time champion was released from his contract with TNA Wrestling last week. "Big Poppa Pump" slammed the organization's creative direction Monday afternoon on his Twitter account in response to the termination.
"Can somebody send tna's booking team of pritchard hogan (and) bischoff video's from ring ka king..booking hogan in a sex tape wont help ratings..what an embarassment to TNA (and) spike tv. Brother..." he wrote via text.
The former World Heavyweight Champion continued his verbal onslaught of his former employer and its creative figure heads late into the night with the following messages:
* Read my tweats people, I am not blasting TNA if I do I will let you know.
* Right now im trying to save tna bcuz its the titanic and its sinking fast bcuz hogan n bischoff r doing the same bullshit they did to de ...
* It took them 1 1/2 months to drive tna to its lowest ratings ever...the best way to save it is to jump off and be the voice for the guys ...

* Official that under the circumstances i would not sign
* Same bullshit they did to destoy wcw

UPDATE: Scott Steiner Continues His TNA Rant On Twitter; Claims Sting Twitter Account Isn't Sting.
The last couple of days have seen Scott Steiner unleash verbal spats against TNA, it's officials, management and now superstars.
Referring to Hogan & Bischoff On Twitter:
"When these a**holes got control they tried to takeover everybodys twitter page."
On Sting's Twitter Account:
"If u didnt have twitter they made one up for U...so u people who think yur tweeting sting its not him."
Steiner then went on to suggest TNA officials email talent different things to say via their Twitter accounts whether they were on tv or not. He then continued to rant on Hogan.
Steiner was let go from TNA this month.
UPDATE: Hulk Hogan posted the following, in response to Scott Steiner's recent Twitter rants against Hulk Hogan and TNA Wrestling…
"Wow do I feel like a fool! I knew Steiner came to TNA the last tapings then was asked to leave, I heard the news and I was lobbying hard to Bring him back the right way because I see money and talent in him, I had no idea he felt that way about me because he is always really nice To me and my family, guess I was really wrong, at least I know who he really is now. HH"
According to Pwinsider.com, this is not part of an angle, and the tapings Steiner was asked to leave were not the last set of tapings, but a set a while ago.
UPDATE: Former TNA Star Scott Steiner posted the following on twitter blasting Hulk Hogan and his creative control:
"No believes yur bullsh*t,U see money n talent in me really,U also think bitchoffs son is the future of wrestling F**k U
