* UltimateJobSecurity: Let's face it - any other person would've been fired from WWE for what Styles' said and done on his Website/{{Twitter}} account alone. He keeps his job most likely because [[Wrestling/VinceMcMahon Vince [=McMahon=]]] doesn't want angry smarks burning WWE Corporate Headquarters down the next day. Let's run down a partial list of Styles' Twitter shenanigans:

Eventually averted, as he was fired from WWE in mid-2016. Let's run down a partial list of Styles' Twitter shenanigans:

* UnPerson: After the incident mentioned above that caused him to be fired from three promotions in one day, CHIKARA took this stance towards him, to the point of making his roster entry on their website unaccessible.

'''Joseph Carmine Bonsignore''', better known by his stage name '''Joey Styles''', is best known as "the Voice of Wrestling/{{ECW}}". He was the first, the last, and the ''only'' play-by-play announcer in the wrestling business to call entire live pay-per-views solo (that is, without a color commentator to give him some breathing time and explain moves - [[TakeThat "wasn't done before me, hasn't been done since!"]], in Joey's own words). Styles was well-loved by fans for his commentary skills and snarky attitude, and when ECW folded, it took a while, but he eventually signed with WWE and took up the play-by-play mic on ''Raw'' and later [[FranchiseZombie WWE's ECW brand]]. He was KickedUpstairs in 2008 and served as the Director of Media Content for WWE.com before being released in mid-2016. He promptly signed on with Beyond Wrestling, Wrestling/{{CHIKARA}}, and EVOLVE, but was fired from all three promotions in November of that year over a very controversial remark made towards a female ring announcer during an EVOLVE event.

*** Of course, also using his Twitter account to run down BarackObama and the Democrats generally comes in handy too, as this chimes with Vince's personal politics.

* AccidentalInnuendo: Invoked with this promotional announcement from his ECW days:
-->"Remember, write to Wrestling/{{Beulah|McGillicutty}}'s Box, because her Box will always be open for you. (To someone off camera) I can't say that on the air, I'll never get an agent."



* PromotedFanboy: Styles was a huge wrestling fan, and he was barely out of college when he auditioned for the ECW play-by-play position. Fast forward fifteen years, and he's one of the most respected commentators in the business.
