(RNN) – Another kind of entertainer expressed his displeasure with singer Chris Brown on Twitter – professional wrestler CM Punk.

Punk, whose real name is Phil Brooks, posted, "I would like @chrisbrown fight somebody that can defend themselves" on his account.

The WWE Champ also suggested beating up the singer would make for a good show at Wrestlemania.

Brown responded by Tweeting, "@CMpunk needs more followers. He's such a leader! Not to mention the roids he's on has made it utterly impossible for him pleasure a women."

He later deleted that post but left this one up: "Positivity regardless of how u feel! @CMpunk contact my assistant and I'll have em send u an autographed pic for my biggest FAN!!!"

He also stated he missed "real wrestlers" and began naming off several, along with the hashtag #notnopunks. It became a top trend on the website.

"We got them #notnopunks tshirts on deck!" Brown added.

In response to the initial comment, Punk posted a video response, which he titled, "This must be said."

In it, he said he did not mention Brown for the publicity, but felt the need to respond after being accused of taking steroids.

"I'm a lifelong, proud, drug-free, straight-edge individual, so Chris and I come from two completely different worlds," he said. "I don't have a manager; I don't have a bodyguard. I don't need a bodyguard … and I don't hit women."

In the 2-minute message, Punk said he did not believe Brown had paid for what he did.

"Picking up trash on the side of a highway does not make amends for repeatedly striking a woman to her face and sending her to a hospital," he said. "Chris wants to throw some stones my way now, and I say that's fine. But put some gloves on and get in the ring.

"I will make you feel as weak, as powerless, scared, and alone as any woman who had the misfortune of knowing a sad, cowardly boy such as yourself. All proceeds can go to a women's shelter of my choosing."

Brown received five years probation after he was arrested for assaulting his girlfriend, singer Rihanna, the night before the Grammy Awards three years ago. The two apparently have made amends, collaborating on two songs they leaked Monday on Twitter amidst the social media dispute.

Brown received criticism from fans and peers after he became a central figure at the Feb. 11 Grammys, performing twice and winning the award for Best R&B Album.

An explicit Tweet was sent from his account in response two days after the awards show, but later taken down.

On Tuesday, Brown's response to Punk's video was that it was "cute."

"It's so funny how defensive u are," he Tweeted then later took down.

Around two hours later, Punk Tweeted the hashtag "#aintnowomanbeater."

Brown stated he would not acknowledge the wrestler anymore.

"Note:today will be the last day I bring @cmpunk existence up! The confrontations that people continuously bring my way are very amusing," he wrote.
