This comic says it all
And the reason why the fans were silent is that the fans of today sucks. Fuk them
If you don't see any change in a company where months before you was not allowed to choke people with ties or kicking flags and now you can mock a heart attack then you refuse to accept any change in WWE because complaining in wrestlingforums is so cool.
Mocking a heart attack alone will not change wrestling but wrestlers and writers who have the freedom to do something without having Linda and her campaign in the back can change wrestling
It's been a while since Punk has gotten an actual face reaction of any kind. And how am I being a hypocrite?
The internet's reaction doesn't say anything about a heel. Those are the type of people that go to the shows and cheer Punk. I was actually fine when Punk came in when it seemed Lawler was done. Could've actually talked about his title defense at the PPV in 4 DAYS. But instead, "that" segment happened.
1. The whole choking thing was a work and was 2 years ago. I wasn't around forums at that time.
2. NO ONE should disrespect a country's flag. People got pissed at it a Jericho got suspended even when he apologized. And rightfully so. Was around here when it happened but didn't say anything on the forums.
If a boom period started at Survivor Series somehow, the mocking of Lawler's heart attack wouldn't have anything to do with it. And the way both mainstream companies are going and how both are losing viewers, and the lack of open minds of the fans forbid it from happening.
