In the midst of a very quiet weekend otherwise — and during the tail end of WWE’s European tour — a minor internet brouhaha broke out when Rip Rogers, who is currently the head trainer at Ohio Valley Wrestling, took to Twitter on Saturday to take the piss out of the current state of independent pro wrestling. (It should be noted, of course, that OVW is not affiliated with WWE, and hasn’t been since the company consolidated all of its developmental wrestling in FCW in 2007.)

The reaction from fans and wrestlers alike was swift and varied, with indie wrestlers taking obvious offense. Even WWE’s TJP responded.

Pride is a funny thing…
