Pro wrestling talent took to their Twitter accounts to comment on last night’s title change at UFC 155. Here are some of their posts.
Steve Austin: “Congratulations to Cain Velasquez. Helluva damn performance. One bad ass cat. #UFC Dos Santos’ heart, strength, and durability so impressive”
Alberto Del Rio: “Cainnnnn awesone… Welcome back to school Dos Santos”
Jim Ross: “I’d rematch @cainmma vs @junior_cigano and make sure Overeem doesn’t have any ‘issues.’ Let Overeem fight/win & not be problematic. #UFC155″
Low-Ki: “Congratulations to Cain Velasquez for regaining the Heavyweight Championship. On a mission from bell to bell. WOW!”
Shad Gaspard: “Great F**king fight, Cain won, fans won, and the UFC Heavyweight division won”
Shane Helms: “Call me crazy but I think JDS won.”
After WWE Superstar JTG vented on Twitter last night about being frustrated with the company, his former Cryme Tyme tag team partner Shad Gaspard posted the following on Twitter:
“Bravery is being the only one who knows you’re afraid, but still fighting for whats right. I Stand With @Jtg1284 . How about You? RT if U do”
Kenn Doane, who appeared as Kenny of the Spirit Squad and Kenny Dykstra for WWE from 2006 to 2008, blames an affair between John Cena and Mickie James for ruining his relationship with the former Diva and sabotaging his once promising career. He stated on Twitter that he has received nothing but positive feedback from those in the professional wrestling industry, including WWE employees, for speaking out against the Cenation leader online.
“Thanks for tweets from positive to negative Nothing but positive from those in the ‘biz’ and in the know,” he wrote Sunday night. “Alot of text messages saying all positive things. ‘Goodjob, thank you, ect’ stuff like so. And that’s from WWE employees and non employees.”
Former WWE star Shad Gaspard agrees with the assessment that Doane’s career was ruined due to backstage politics.
He tweeted, “Kenn Doane is a great guy and worker who was held back. Some of the best guys get shitted on for no good reason.”
Doane stated to SEScoops.com that he we wanted to bury the hatchet with Cena at a WWE show last November, but was blown off. He also explained why he’s speaking out now.
“When I was there in November I was actually excited to talk with John and I wanted to bury this all. He walked by I put my hand out and said hey you got a minute? He didn’t shake my hand and said “for you, absolutely not.” So I was like “really OK John, that’s cool,” he recalls. “So to all you people that disagree with me bringing this up now it’s merely to clear my name of having a bad attitude.”
He continues, “Another thing people claim my timing is bad on this and maybe you’re right. John is going through a divorce right now and I really wish him and Liz a peaceful divorce. But if anyone of you lost your job, personal life and then got stuck with a bad reputation, you’re gonna honestly say you wouldn’t do the same thing? Let’s get real people.”
Former WWE Superstar and Shad Gaspard recently went on to rip Titus O’Neal and Darren Young on Twitter. He says the SmackDown tag team stole his and JTG’s “Cryme Tyme” gimmick:
“Wow… What type of un original person tries to bite off of Someone Else’s gimmick?,” Gaspard wrote. “PRIME-TIME-PLAYER? MILLIONS OF DOLLORS? Really? TWITTWER! why didnt any one tell me about this BS… Prime time player are you s–tting me!?
“@TitusONeilWWE @DarrenYoungWWE Pleas DON’T respond back to me BC your charisma is lacking, you style is jacking, & just cause you play with your self don’t make you boyz player. If you’re a little confused, I am talking trash, so sit back BC in this tweet I’m going to Textually beat that ass. If Cryme Tyme was in the ring we would do more than just beat you down. You wont hear No PTP, no milly milly. Just a bunch of @WWE fans cheering ‘Whoop them clowns’. So try to be original, stop trying to be hood. Ain’t nothing worst than some posers like you who don’t even do it good. #CRYMETYME4L”
“@DarrenYoungWWE sit down with your half brother @JohnCena , ask him for advice, I think you took his ‘You cant see me’ comment a little to literal, BC for the last 4yrs no one has seen you. Every time you popped up Ron Simmons says, ‘Damn! Cena Got a tan!’ … #CRYMETYME4L
“@TitusONeilWWE go read your motivational book, you know the little engine that could, but this time so you don’t bite my style stop saying ‘I think I’m shad. I think I’m shad. I think I’m shad.’ And start saying ‘I wish I would’. ‘I wish I would stop barking’ ‘I wish I would stop clapping begging to the fans to cheer for me.’ ‘I wish I would clos my mouth BC I look like Bubba Gump.’ I wish I would stop licking the office ass, because every time I talk, I really talk s–t’ ‘I WISH I WOULS—-.’ #CRYMETYME4L”

But when he allegedly refused to show his ID and ignored a request to not walk on the street, officer attempted to take him into custody. Gaspard broke free, which is why the additional police were called.
Gaspard had claimed his innocence the entire time, and MMA fighter Josh Barnett, who was there, defended Gaspard.

TMZ.com featured the other side of the Shad Gaspard story this evening with comments from the Columbus, Ohio police department.
Their version of events is that the former WWE star was walking in the street and obstructing traffic. When he refused to show identification and “ignored” a request not to walk in the street, an officer attempted to take him into custody. Gaspard broke free, which is why the additional police were called.
As previously noted, Gaspard has claimed he did nothing wrong. MMA fighter Josh Barnett, who was with Gaspard, claimed on his Twitter that Gaspard was arrested for jaywalking after the police made a big deal about nothing. Gaspard’s wife has since claimed racial profiling.

One half former WWE Tag Team Champion, Shad Gaspard was arrested in Columbus, Ohio for what police are charging him with as “Pedestrian in Roadway”. His wife tweeted these details:
“This is Shad’s wife everyone. I want to address the rumors that are going on around the Internet right now about Shad’s arrest. He was indeed arrested today, in Columbus. No use denying it. But Shad did nothing wrong, he was trying to attend the Arnold Classic, and can you guys believe that the Columbus police department has nothing better to do than arrest him for crossing the street????!! That’s what they got him for “pedestrian in roadway” I think we should all stand up and be heard! Too many cops abusing their authority!! Apparently they even decided that it was necessary to tackle him…. I am very disappointed in those who “serve and protect” right now.”
She since hired a lawyer and mentioned intentions of submitting a video to TMZ and other relevant outlets.
