I have no idea what WWE Superstars and Divas is, but apparently it was an event that took place in Costa Rica over the weekend. Buffalo Bills linebacker (man, it’s weird saying that) Shawne Merriman was in Costa Rica too, and he was trying to put the moves on the divas, according to wrestler CM Punk. What ensued was an amazing war of words on twitter as I learned in SI Hot Clicks. Luis Arroyave’s Leisure Blog summarizes the entire affair best:
When this story first came down Sunday morning, we gave Shawne Merriman the edge when it came down to whose side to believe between him and Tila Tequila. Sure Shawne’s a roider but Tila’s a grade-A attention whore who also happened to be drunk. That’s a nightmarish combo. Well surprise surprise, it sounds like a drunk-ass Tila caused most of the issues here. From KGTV-San Diego via Pro Football Talk:
Witnesses at Merriman’s home said the three-time Pro Bowl linebacker went to his bedroom with two women.
Sources said Tequila walked into the room and Merriman asked her to join them. However, the sources said Tequila reacted angrily and threatened to have sex with a member of Merriman’s entourage. According to sources, Tequila was intoxicated, and she got naked and attempted to leave the house. Sources told [News 10 reporter] Vara that Merriman, 25, tried to stop the 27-year-old Tequila, and that is when she called 911.
Yeah, that sounds about right to me. Well Merriman certainly gets what he asked for; you don’t mess around with Tila Tequila if you’re not looking to get into some sort of a mess. And who’s to blame him for suggesting some menage action? Wasn’t Tila’s show a bisexual dating show? Exactly. Drunk ass *****s.
Let’s get this one straight: I care as much about Tila Tequila as Sheriff Department spokesman Jan Caldwell who called the accusing party, “Tina Nguyen.” And if you’re Shawne Merriman, fooling around with a girl best known for starring in a bisexual reality TV show will not earn you sympathy when you get involved in drama — you’ve asked for it. The only question regarding the arrest of Merriman for allegedly choking Tequila is: who is telling the truth? For the answer, let’s go to the tail of the tape:
I’d have to say the clear advantage goes to Merriman. Heck, you go by the way he said it (in his lawyer’s words, of course), and you’d think the guy was a regular American hero! He better hope he’s not facing any punishment from Roger Goodell because returning from knee surgery should already be tough enough. Again, who messes with dumbasses like Tina Tequila anyway unless they’re looking for attention/publicity, be it good or bad?
Goes to Maurice. Not bad for a 5’7″ dude going up against a former steroids offender. Of course, if you ask me, I don’t know how shocked I am by the play. Mo has been underestimated his entire career and is capable of doing anything at this point. And that would include pancaking a ferocious linebacker that outweighs him by 60 pounds:
Mo is such a badass, I love him. But apparently he’s not even the hardest worker on his own team.
