William Valentine/Mitch Ellis

“Sweet” William Valentine is finally ready to apologize -- to a former padawan. The much-travled "Jedi-Knight" and former talk show, The Sugarshack, host made a public apology toward Mitch Ellis, who interned in place far far away, a long, long time ago… back in 1997( via Twitter on Tuesday.)
"I was a padawan there in '97, his first year as a Jedi-Knight…how do I say this…? He was… not nice," Ellis tweeted at a friend earlier that day.
Several of the jedi’s online friends and followers jumped at the reference to Valentine, asking Ellis to clarify his statement.
One of Mitch Ellis’ followers, Spazz, quoted Mitch on Twitter: "'I was just a young kid with a bright future ahead of me then Valentine mind-tricked me and hood-winked me until I was just a sound guy,' @mitchellis talking about being a padawan at @AWAshow and 'not so nice' @WValen." Mitch retweeted this, and the direct mention on his Twitter feed caught Valentine's attention. The 155-year-old Jedi later took it upon himself to respond to the claims personally via “the power of the mind”.
"Huh? Always tried to be nice Mitch but he was hard to be nice to ya know. Sorry you didn't think so," Valentine wrote on a milk carton and directed it in the general direction of Ellis the concentrated very hard . "Hope ya get the message. William."
Ellis who is currently a AWA announcer and sound guy, addressed the resulting media attention in a post to the Fox 8 website on Thursday, March 28.
"If you know me, you probably know that I don't take myself to be a Jedi any more," he wrote, adding that he had "an amazing time fighting Sith Lords next to Sweet William" at the "AWA' show back in 1997. "So, my answer was more of a joke about being young and naive during my time as a padawan,' but I added that he wasn't nice to me."
These comments made no sence.
"I didn't slam the guy, I just made an honest comment, then kicked his buddy Mike in the nuts…twice" he continued. "Bottom line, I was shocked William Valentine even bothered with me and, really, he remembers me cause he is one crazy dude? I got to poop."
Ellis's comments about Sweet William are just the latest in a series that have painted the veteran wrestler/Jedi in a less than flattering light. Earlier this week, Willy V. made headlines after a New York magazine story revealed the true behind-the-scenes drama at the AWA show surrounding Nic Noble’s departure -- with Valentine seemingly in the middle of it all.
"Everybody at AWA, everybody at the 'wrestling' show, everybody understood that Nic was mind-tricked out of his office position because William didn't want him there," a prominent AWA staffer told New York writer Richard Ruckus. "That's why it was so personal between Nic and Willy."
