Re: Punk & Heyman mocking King's heart attack
It's funny how people are using this whole "no heat" rhetoric as a way to discredit Punk and the segment itself when we all know damn well how hit or miss WWE live crowds have been for the last few years.
You either get a hot crowd or they outright suck. Sometimes you get a middle ground.
It was a smarky/mixed crowd who was cheering him during the main event for God's sake. They wanted to cheer for him. He got heat with the people who mattered. When you hear the high pitched boos from women and children, you've hit your target audience.
These segments aren't meant to be the end all be all of what a character represents. Just because the audience isn't throwing popcorn and soda into the ring like it's '99 doesn't mean the segment won't get Punk more and more heat moving forward. The next live event, future Raws etc. they'll remember how this dickhead of a wrestler Punk picked on a defenseless Jerry Lawler who just almost died of a heart attack and he'll continue to get booed to hell.
