Even more has came to light regarding the CM Punk, Tony Atlas backstage altercation at OVW. On top of what was reported, Atlas called CM Punk a paper champion, implying that he hadn’t earned it and also mocked the wrestlers outfits and looked down on them because they didn’t have bruises on their arms?…
The after show speech about bad attitudes was reportedly focussed on CM Punk the whole time, to the point that he tried to get the locker room against him. Punk tried to brush it off as much as he could but in the end went off on the previously reported tangent. Everyone was on Punk’s side making Atlas look stupid.
The feeling within management is that Atlas was a bad choice to pass on his wisdom and ended up making a fool of himself.
