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.
