Contradicting Story On Punk/Atlas Altercation

Chris Cash

As Ryan Clark has posted here on, an altercation took place between CM Punk and Tony Atlas last week during OVW’s post meeting. Ryan’s sources claim Punk is a locker room leader and somewhat of a “hero” for standing up to Atlas. However, from what I’m gathering, that’s rather far from the truth.

Although Atlas may have been out of line in some regard with what he indirectly said to Punk, a lot of the workers were glad it happened. They feel Atlas hit the nail on the head with his comments about Punk’s sorry attitude.

“He’s a real prick with a bad indy-worker attitude,” claimed one of our sources. He won’t shake the hands of a lot of non-contract guys when he’s there and acts as if he’s better than everyone else.

A quick correction on one of the earlier posts as well: CM Punk apparently asked Tony Atlas during the altercation whether or not he watched “my show” and not “the show”, referring to ECW. That’s been a joke between the boys since the incident as they quote that line a lot in mockery of Punk.

Lastly, morale is not that low in OVW, according to my sources. “It’s only miserable when you get big-dogged and superstarred by assholes like CM Punk,” said another source after reading the second WZ article.
