Re: Punk & Heyman mocking King's heart attack

Well, reading through this thread, you guys have certainly changed my mind a bit on the subject. The only withstanding problem I have with this segment is that it was just Punk(the creative writers, to be more specific) trying too hard to get the fans to hate him again.

Re: Punk & Heyman mocking King's heart attack

lol guys. Edgyness usually contradicts with tastefulness. Edgyness is pushing boundries, and you can't really do that unless you push less tastful stuff.


I'm glad this happened. Means that WWE might grow some balls now. I look forward to Rockys return.

My reaction to it was I couldn't believe what I was watching. But Punk his been getting a lot of cheap heat for weeks (disrespecting Bret in Montreal, making fun of Hurricane Sandy, etc) so go figure with Lawler's heart attack. I didn't particularly find it entertaining but I can see how people would be offended even if Lawler was OK with it.

ALL I'M REALLY ASKING FOR IS YOU

Re: Punk & Heyman mocking King's heart attack

so wait a minute, you guys want the product to be "edgy" and do stuff like they did in the late 90s, and tonight we got a little of that with the punk/lawyer promo
then you complain that its "gone to far"

my god, no matter what they do some of you will complain

imo it was great, reminded of of AE, wrestling is suppose to be edgy like it was in late 90s imho, society has got WAY to soft and PC

this promo was "just another week" back in the 90s

now we have fans outraged and crying over it

mixing real life, getting mad heat, great promo

but let me guess, you would rather barney and friends having a sing-a-long with cena

Re: Punk & Heyman mocking King's heart attack

I did think it was in pretty bad taste at first honestly. But then when you had Lawler say "There's my ride" when the ambulance came in, then my opinion changed. I mean this is the way someone like Lawler responds to a situation like this, with humor. And if this is how Lawler wants people to respond to his near-death experience then that's up to him.

I did have an issue with the video package of Lawler's heart attack. Now that was a problem.

I know it's a old 'comeback', but I assure you that if something like this happened to you, or anyone you care about, your opinion would be entirely different.
I lost my grandfather to a heart attack a few months ago, and my mom is currently battling cancer, and I don't have an issue with this segment.

Eh, there's a difference between thinking something is wrong or over the line, and actually getting bent out of shape about it.

Rape victim scenario isn't comparable. In that situation there's a second party that committed a terrible crime which shouldn't be taken lightly by anyone.


Press Play to wake up.

And then join the 100 Years Alan Pardew Club!
