We reported earlier this week here on eWn that Teddy Hart was arrested for charges of strangulation resulting in wounding/bodily harm. The charges stem from an assault on his girlfriend, ROH Superstar Maria Manic. Now, indie wrestler John “Pork Chop” Johnson commented on Hart’s arrest and the events leading up to it. He said,
“This will probably be the longest post you’ll see from me so bear with me. As stated by Ace Montana during his interview with HANNIBAL Tv on YouTube, I can now confirm that Teddy Hart was in fact living with me upon his released from his first arrest last month. For those wondering why now I chose to speak out about Teddy Hart, at the time I wished to not only offer up my home to Teddy Hart during his time of need prior to his trial but also offer him moral support and to give him some encouragement during this stressful time for him.
On a low profile basis. I also acknowledge that with this information now being public knowledge that lots of rumor and hearsay will likely generated from this, most of which will be untrue, so allow me the opportunity to dispel all the myths and tales that may come out of this give everyone a first hand account of my personal and brief dealings with Teddy Hart.
Last month Teddy was arrested the first time for drug charges and would be released a few weeks later provided that he establish residence at a legit location and be placed on house arrest for the duration of his trial in April. Maria Manic, whom She and I go way back when we both broke in the wrestling business together 5 years ago,contacted me and asked if i had some available space In my apartment for Teddy since he was likely gonna be stuck in Virginia for the duration of his trial. I told her yes i would take him in mainly as a favor for her.
About a week later I picked up Teddy from the jail facility to give him a place to stay while he prepares for his trial in April 2020. He seem really appreciative and thankful that a complete stranger would open up His home to him during his time of need, and despite some reservations on my part fully aware of his reputation, I believe everyone deserves a second chance at life and to treat others as they treat you.At first the relationship between Teddy and I started out really good where he would share funny stories with me and we would even watch some of his wrestling matches so that I could pick his brain and apply it to my own wrestling career.
Slowly but surely some of his antics would irk me from time to time but I would overlook it chalk it up to maybe the trauma of him being incarcerated was starting to get to him. As every one knows I’m a big fan of Nintendo and have a huge aray of Nintendo paraphernalia. One day when I came home from work i noticed that my living [room] was decorated with my Nintendo stuff as well as some my merchandising ads that i install in stores.
Although I was kind of irked that he gotten most of my stuff from my bedroom without my prior approval, I have to admit that the way he had everything setup was very creative and looked pretty damn cool and I wish I had pictures of it to share with you all but more on that later. So I let it slide.
Then the next day after I returned home from work he put up more decorations in the kitchen and living room. While I thought it looked cool I had to let him know that going in my room without my permission is a big no no with me and going forward my room is off limits to him unless I’m present and he assured me that he understood the directive.
The next day he put up even more decorations where although they were very elaborate, now there are obstructing to my refrigerator, freezer, and cabinets to where I could even open the doors without something falling off And to make matters worse, he even used my brand new ads for my merchandising job that I was supposed to install that week( the ones he installed previously were my old extra ads)but due to his desire to show off his artistic skills my new ads were rendered unless and I had to contact my supervisor to reorder my ads and ship it to my apartment overnight so I can install them in time.
And if that’s not bad enough, certain items such as my charger, silverware, my diabetes kit, etc was all out of place and not in its proper habitat as you can see in the pictures I provided.
Finally I said enough is enough. While the 1st decorations was cool, now you’ve gone overboard to the point that I’m essentially wasting valuable time looking for certain items and whatnot. Not only did i forbid anymore displays to be built, but I also commanded Teddy to take down all displays and return everything to its proper location. I gave him an entire weekend to complete this task and if the apartment wasn’t spic and span by the time I returned from my engagement that weekend on Monday morning that I would be contacting his parole officer to have him dispelled from my apartment. Throughout the weekend i would periodically call him to see how he was progressing and he would say it was going good or so he said. So i asked him to send me some pictures of his progress but he told me that he ran out of space on his phone and couldn’t send me pictures which I knew he was telling a tale.
So I actually returned home later that Monday afternoon than anticipated without telling him to test him if he would use that extra time to complete his tasks or waste more time and come up with excuses. So I returned home around 2 pm that Monday and to the surprising of no one, not only has he not completed his task but it looked like he didn’t do a damned thing. Naturally my patience was wearing thin with Teddy and was about to kick his trifling ass out the apartment but then i gave it little more thought. I then gave him until Midnight that night to complete what he was originally supposed to fulfill that morning. “Gee, John. Why are you giving him more time?”
