Lawler let WWE use his mothers death to put over Cole when he was pushed as a heel character, I'm not surprised with this and actually I didn't get offended Foley later made him look like a fucking hero.

Answer this question: Is it acceptable to make fun of someone's near death experience especially when he's returning to a job that he's done for over 40 years?

Don't answer that, answer this. Is it ok to make fun of someone's death?
Yes and yes.

Yes, if he's ok with it. It's not as though they made King have the heart attack for the sake of the show. The segment didn't hurt anyone.

If the guy who died was cool with it. Of course that would have to be written in the will or he has made mention of it beforehand.

Except WWE has an audience that watches their product who is sensitive to that shit? Some of them have people who died of heart attacks, died while CPR was performed on them, etc. It's just bad taste in general.

Just because King agreed to it doesn't mean he agreed with it. Hell, Vince could of did it without King's approval.

Unbelievable how ignorant wrestling fans are. And then you wonder why people make fun of you for watching wrestling.

Lot of dumbasses defending it. Completely tasteless. Dude nearly died. I don't care if Lawler was okay with it, there are things you don't base a storyline around and this was one of them.
