#FollowTheTweeter: CM Punk Curb Stomps Chris Brown, Johnny Gargano's Broken Toy Rumble, Kassius Ohno Trends on Twitter, & Much More!

By Mike Johns Feb 22, 2012 - 1:05 PM print


Hello and welcome back to the Insanity's on-going coverage of Wrestlers in Social Media, #FollowTheTweeter, where we keep track of what's trending almost as obsessively as WWE does!  Speaking of which, looks who was trending this past Sunday...

CM Punk has, once again, been causing a stir on Twitter.  This time, he's decided to go after the infamous Rihanna-beater and all-around douchetard, Chris Brown.

Of course, this wasn't Brown's original response.  No, the douchetard actually felt the need to accuse Punk of Steroid use, just to realize that he came off like a complete douchetard, and deleted the post.  He then decided to keep the post you see above, not seeming to realize that it, too, makes him look like a totally conceited douchetard, but then again, this is Chris Brown, and we really should learn to expect this from him by now.  Thankfully, TMZ caught this story, and got to see the original tweets that I, unfortunately, did not get a chance to screencap before Brown cowardly took it down.

Dusty Rhodes had this to say about the incident -

A lot of times, when I log on to Twitter or Facebook, I find myself dropping in the middle of an on-going conversation, forcing me to scramble to catch up and screen-cap everything I can before it gets too buried in my timeline.  This also means that I don't always have time to confirm the validity of a story until long after I've actually capped all the relevant tweets.  Such is the case with this week's lead story, which I initially thought was going to be a bigger deal than it eventually turned out to be.  What seemed like a major incident simply boiled down to a person overreacting to the wording of a news site post, seeming to take personal offense over something that really ought not to have mattered that much.  But, as such is the norm in the wrestling business, it's still a relevant story for this column.  It's just not the war I thought I was stepping into when I first saw these posts, that's all.

First, some background.  As most of you reading this are not familiar with the realm of British Professional Wrestling, and, more specifically, British Women's Professional Wrestling, I feel that I need to explain a few things, and establish some of the name players here before we continue.

Saraya Knight & Britani Knight, now known as "Paige" in FCW


Pictured above is Saraya and Britani Knight.  Britani, as some of you may know, recently signed a Developmental Deal with WWE, and is currently known as "Paige" in FCW.  These two are, at the moment, the biggest stars in all of British Women's Wrestling, and part of one of the most influential families in the UK Wrestling Scene, the Knights, who run the World Association of Wrestling (WAW), as well as the All-Women's off-shoot company, the World Association of Women's Wrestling (WAWW).

Dann Read, Pro Wrestling EVE promoter, former ChickFight Promoter


This is Dann Read, the founder and promoter of Pro Wrestling EVE, Europe's largest and most well-known All-Women's Wrestling Promotion.  He is also the former UK promoter of ChickFight, another series of All-Women's Wrestling shows, most famous for its series of matches between Cheerleader Melissa and Wesna Busnic, considered among Women's Wrestling Fans as some of the best matches in the genre. 

Simply put - Saraya Knight and Dann Read do not get along very well.  This stems from an incident where allegedly, Saraya claims that Read "kidnapped" her for about a month several years back.  The validity of that claim is, unfortunately, rather questionable.  Needless to say, Saraya doesn't particularly like Dann Read, and after their issues with ChickFight and the alleged kidnapping incident, it seemed unlikely that Saraya and Read would ever work together again.  And then came Pro Wrestling EVE...

A couple of years ago, Dann and his wife, Emily, founded Pro Wrestling EVE which, strangely enough, featured Saraya and Britani Knight as a prominent part of their roster, representing the WAW promotion, and essentially helping Read build the ultimate European Women's Roster for EVE by bringing in WAWW talent that Saraya trained herself.  Britani Knight was even pushed as the Face of EVE, being a part of the promotion's first Main Events, as well as being crowned the first-ever EVE Champion.  Unfortunately, it would not be long before issues between Read and Saraya would come up, again.

The story as I understand it, and has been reported elsewhere, is that Britani Knight, severely ill at the time, went to a show where Read had supposedly booked for her to defend the EVE title against Jenny Sjodin.  Upon arrival, an issue involving the EVE/WAW relationship came up (namely, the fact that Read had decided to have Britani drop the EVE Title to Sjodin), and Saraya basically pulled all WAW talent from EVE immediately afterwards.  Britani dropped the EVE title, and soon afterward, Saraya decided to revive the WAWW, which had been on a hiatus for several years at this point, supposedly to compete with EVE.  That seemed to be the end of it, until this past week.

Pro Wrestling EVE, in conjunction with Diva-Dirt.com, held its first-ever iPPV last weekend, No Man's Land.  Also, last weekend, news broke that WWE had officially christened Britani Knight as "Paige" in FCW, and added her to the FCW roster page.  Diva Dirt, in their statement about Britani's new Developmental Name, credited her as a Pro Wrestling EVE star.  Apparently, that's all it took for Saraya to post this to her Facebook and Twitter.

She's allegedly referring to the EVE Title Controversy I mentioned in the previous paragraph.

For the record: Julia Hamer is Saraya Knight. Saraya-Jade Bevis is Britani Knight a.k.a. "Paige". Vicky Hughes is Jetta, Semi-Retired Third of the International Home Wrecking Crew, along with Lacey & Rain.


Out of this, Saraya also manages to draw the semi-retired Jetta back to WAWW, as well.  Jetta had recently been a part of the EVE Roster.

Keep in mind, at NO POINT has anyone associated with EVE actually tried to claim any part in training Britani Knight. All of this is over a post from a wrestling news site.


Britani Knight also weighed in on the matter on her Twitter -

Another little tidbit of information Saraya may not be happy to hear about is the fact that EVE still not only has pictures of the two featured prominently on their front page, but still has Britani listed on the roster, wearing her EVE t-shirt.  So, while it does, on the surface, look like Saraya may be simply over-reacting to the fact that Diva Dirt referred to Britani as an EVE star (because, after all, she was their first champion), EVE has made a concerted effort to lay a claim on Britani Knight as "theirs".  After all, Britani was their first champion, and, whether Saraya likes it or not, more people know the EVE name than WAWW.  Either way, you just saw someone turn a molehill into a mountain, and for what, I really don't know, other than a personal dislike of a promoter who is smart enough to capitalize on the fact that a WWE Developmental Talent was, for a moment, the face of his company. 

Moving on... DGUSA's current Open the Freedom Gate Champion, Johnny Gargano, seems to have a lot of time on his hands these days as he continues to rehab an injured back he suffered in his title defense against Ricochet at EVOLVE 10.  Here's a look -
