I thought it was a good segment. Heels are supposed to be jerks, and these guys were total dicks there. Heyman faking the heart attack had me laughing a little but saying 'this is really really bad' at the same time. They're mockery of Lawler was evil. I liked it.

Had Jerry died or had such a serious heart attack that he never returned, I highly doubt they ever would have brought it up, maybe as a reference, but nothing like this. If you notice the week before he had the heart attack Punk beat him in that cage match. The next week, Punk didn't even mention Lawler's name or what happened. They could very easily have done it and TBH I was expecting it, but they didn't. They only did it now. Now that he is back and somewhat healthy, and I would say, after he had approved it.

Plus this is wrestling we're talking about. I highly doubt Lawler would have had a problem with this at all. Wrestlers tend to be pretty light hearted about these things.

Lawler used to make fun of Jake Roberts' alcoholism. It's not quite as serious as a heart attack but still not something to make fun of. He did it because he was a heel, he was probably good friends with Roberts. Same as I believe that Punk and Lawler and Foley and Cena all get along.

Also, it's just a TV show.
So in other words it should be expected and acceptable to see this in wrestling?

It really is the wrong kind of heat. That's the problem. WWE's mindset for decades has always been that any attention is good attention whether it's good or bad. That's just not true.

What kind of sense does that make?
It's fine that Lawler is ok with it, but that shouldn't mean everyone become sheep and throw out their own personal opinions on something.

People need to develop a thicker skin, worry about your own problems. Jerry was fine with it, you guys should be.

Was it tasteless? yes, was it appropriate? not really, but who cares, Lawler was making recurring jokes about it all night, clearly he doesn't care.

He and Punk are probably reading this thread and all the hate tweets Punk is getting and laughing their ass off.

I realise where they're going and that WWE will push Roman Reigns straight to the top. However for me, Dean Ambrose is by far the most talented in that group and I think eventually if they just give him the spotlight then he's going to shine. As soon as he touches a mic everyone else can just sit down as he's magic on it. So It remains to be seen, I think they're all talented but to me Dean was the star of that group. I think Roman looks like the star of that group but I don't think he's nearly as talented as Dean.

They will digest it later and realize what punk did was disgusting. I can guarantee you this, when the WWE goes to King home town in Memphis, he will get booed out of the building lol.

Default Re: Punk & Heyman mocking King's heart attack

If there was a line, I suppose they crossed it since it's become so controversial, which was the main goal anyway. Everyone involved had to know it would rustle a portion of the audience's feathers. I'm not bent out of shape over it myself, but it's not hard to see why some people would think otherwise. In the end, Punk is at least trying to make it real hard for his biggest marks to defend him. Even I am finding it hard to keep backing him, but when the other choices are Cena and Ryback, it's going to be hard for me to not keep cheering for him no matter how cowardly and whiny he becomes.

I'm just waiting patiently for the day the build for Punk vs. Rock can start.

That's where people got offended, though. When Punk performed "CPR", it reminded some of when a close friend/family member got CPR, except they didn't make it. I'm not really upset by this anymore, but Vince being a hypocrite get's to me. One segment: making fun of a heart attack, next: "Wounded Warriors". One segment: AJ calling Vickie fat, next: Be a Star, etc etc. I know it's nothing new, but still.

Judge them or not you can still feel upset about it and think it crossed a line no matter who was okay with it. So I see were those that are upset with this are coming from. It's a big deal to alot of people and I'm fine with that. Personally I think WWE crossed a line with the recap of the actual heart attack and I turned the channel. I'm not going to write WWE a letter about it though. lol

As far as the Punk stuff went, I don't mind that so much.

That recap was worse than anything in this segment besides the fake heart attack, maybe worse. They even put fucking dramatic music in with it.

Any heat is pretty much good heat accept the change the channel heat of course.
