Re: Punk & Heyman mocking King's heart attack

I loved it to be honest. It felt edgy and real and I know Lawler would be cool with them using his heart attack to get heat. He's just that old-school.

Lawler pitched the idea, I bet.

As long as the PG crap is dropped...good. They got a reaction which is what they were going for. OP has fallen right into their trap.

However, I am against doing it because it blurs the line between reality & storylines in a disturbing way. For example, while I was grossly offended by the "Eddie is in hell" bit they did with Orton heading into Mania 22 (which to me was far more tasteless than this), my biggest problem with it was that it was so over the line, that some fans were honest to God speculating that Eddie's death was an elaborate work.

And there in lies my problem. If you go too far with something like this, not only do you run the risk of offending people, but to me, it kind of takes away from the seriousness & severity of what actually happened and reduces it to just being another wrestling storyline.

EDIT: I actually missed the footage they showed of Lawler having the Heart Attack and having CPR performed on him. Thank God I did. Why on Earth would the WWE show that? That is just morbid, ghoulish, and weird.
I was offended bout Orton said, that went way over the line. That Punk-Heyman stuff is BossMan-BigShow storyline BossMan said BIG SHOW YOU'RE A NASTY BASTARD & YOU'RE MOMMA SAID SO. He got major heat in 99 BossMan was great as Heel with funeral & his segments. Punk-Heyman did the same last night, that's why PG Era sucks now, storylines are crap etc. They need more edgier stuff like this & push them mid-carders 2 main-eventers. It is sick of what they did, Heel Jake was awesome in 91 feuding with Macho Man, brings King Cobra bits his arm & got over. It's major heat is what's really wrong in WWE, what u think TripleG?

Re: Punk & Heyman mocking King's heart attack

I didn't think the segment was necessary, but I wasn't offended. People need to not take things like this seriously and realize they're just playing characters and they both agreed to it prior. Was it tasteless? A bit. But it's not like this is the only tasteless segment they've ever done...

Re: Punk & Heyman mocking King's heart attack

People are getting way too sensitive over this. Heels are supposed to do whatever they can to generate heat, and this was the perfect opportunity. Lawler would have given the OK for this to happen, if he was offended by it he wouldn't have agreed to it. I didn't think the segment was particularly funny, but I'm not going to get on a moral high ground like so many people on here. There's been far more offensive segments over the years than that, like the Eddie/Orton one.
