Given that Vince doesn't seem to think that his viewers can remember more than a few weeks back I'd say no. This was all about Lawler, and I'd say that with Punk and Heyman making fun of it and then having Foley come out with his "he was dead!" I think they actually managed to make it sink in more with the audience what a close call it actually was. So making fun of it actually made it more serious in the long run.
