Random story of the day: WWE star CM Punk is locked in a Twitter feud with NFL star Shawne Merriman over the WWE Divas.
The WWE roster and Merriman happened to be in Costa Rica at the same time this past weekend when Punk tweeted: “Watching Shawne Merriman of the Buffalo Bills hit on our divas and strike out. Reminds me of the Bills in the Super Bowl.”
This led to some to-and-fro between the pair on Twitter that has caught some buzz.
Speaking to the Chicago Tribune earlier today, Punk explained what happened:
“All I did was observe him walking around poolside, back and fourth, around in circles. I had no clue who he was, just knew that this guy was obviously trying to get noticed. When that didn’t work, he sent his publicist after the girls, which is the most lacking of testicles thing ever. That’s how we found out who he was.
“When THAT didn’t work I watched him run after them as they tried to leave. Dude clowned himself and all I did was report the facts and laugh about it. On the road, the WWE is a family. The divas are my sisters, and like any big brother, I don’t want creeps around my little sisters.”
Thoughts: Regardless of whether it’s just friendly banter or legit tension, I’d have to agree with one of Punk’s tweets. Merriman comes off looking skeezy by Punk’s account. Considering his list of exes includes Tila Tequila, I don’t blame the Divas for turning him down.
