Punk, whose real name is Phil Brooks, started the war Monday, claiming that he wanted to "curb stomp" Brown, and that would be a "WrestleMania moment." Brown replied in a tweet, saying that Punk "needs more followers. He's such a leader! Not to mention the roids hes on has made it utterly impossible for him pleasure a women." In another tweet, Brown also sarcastically says for Punk to call Brown's assistant so he could send Punk an autographed picture to "his biggest FAN!"
The topic of conversation surrounds Brown's 2009 felony assault charge against former girlfriend, Rihanna. Brown did 200 hours of community service and was placed on probation for several years.
The assault recently came back into the news as Brown and Rihanna collaborated on two songs that debuted on radio this week.
The war continued today, as CM Punk posted an explosive rebuttal on his Twitter account:
Brown retaliated, going to his Twitter during tonight's live edition of Smackdown on Syfy, talking about how defensive he [Punk] was being and he didn't know who he was. He also referenced that he hoped his "15 minutes of fame" would pay off for him as music lasts forever, but wrestlers "come and go according to ratings." Brown also said that he missed some wrestlers, such as "Hacksaw" Jim Duggan, Bret "The Hitman" Hart, Koko B. Ware, "Rowdy" Roddy Piper and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, adding the hashtag #notnopunks.
Brown's last tweet of Tuesday night said that it would be the last time he would bring up CM Punk, stating, "The confrontations that people continuously bring my way are very amusing. Cuz honestly, that [expletive] is too time consuming to argue wit every person who has their own issues to deal with!"
However, it was Punk, who would speak last, with one last tweet for Tuesday, simply saying "#aintawomanbeater".
