We noted earlier today that Dave Meltzer of The Wrestling Observer reported a backstage incident took place between Michelle Beadle and AJ Lee during WWE's Tribute to the Troops taping, during which AJ Lee allegedly "lost it" following a conversation Beadle had with Lee's real life boy friend, CM Punk.
In an update on this developing story, conflicting information has been reported by PWInsider.com, as the site claims the backstage incident did not take place during a conversation between Punk and Beadle, but rather after the conversation.
The report notes AJ Lee did not approach Michelle Beadle to due jealousy, but rather Punk was allegedly upset with a disrespectful tone Beadle took with him, so Lee approached Beadle and told her not to talk to her boyfriend like that or there would be a problem.
A source noted to PWInsider that Lee did not raise her voice or yell at Beadle in anyway, and those Wrestling Observer reports are erroneous.
"Anyone who said that is a liar," said the wrestler to PWInsider, who spoke under the condition of anonymity.
PWInsider has corroborated, however, that since Beadle is a celebrity, there is heat on Lee over the ordeal. The same wrestler remarked, "Celebs are untouchable in the backstage scene. WWE wants them more than they need any wrestler, so automatically, the wrestler is going to be wrong here, even when [Lee] isn't really."
