“In order to raise money to replace the kiddie pool that @steveaustinBSR belligerently destroyed when I was a kid, I will be releasing T shirts soon for pre-order!!”
Austin got wind of the same, and proceeded to issue a sporting response—
“Young man, I was just taking care of bizness. I did what I had to do. I apologize for damaging your little swimming pool..”
Steve Austin is presently retired from the sport of professional wrestling.
