I still don't see how even the issues you mentioned should be taboo at all on a scripted show. It's not real... nobody needs to get offended by a character...

Only way it could be better is if King didn't okay it and he quits next week

Do people really not get that it was SUPPOSED to be highly offensive?

Do you people remember when Undertaker crucified SCSA? Yeah, that was offensive to christians. But nobody gives a shit about that now, becuase it's a scripted show, it's just entertainment.

I agree with everything you have said, I am just confused as to what people see as taboo's in real life.

And I'm not offended by it. Some people are and that's their deal. I'm saying that I don't see how it can be called an edgy segment when it wasn't edgy, at least not to me. I just found it all -worthy. I'll give them this though, they have got people talking, for all the wrong reasons though. If anything was going to offend me it would be that horrible video promo they showed to set the whole thing up. The fact that they were filming while he was getting resuscitated, now that's offensive. I still have no idea what the hell they were planning to do with that footage had he actually died. But yeah, it was just completely unnecessary. Punk didn't need it to get heat and in the end, it didn't even work and was all for nothing.

@Karma101 - You don't see how things like abortion and necrophilia are taboo issues in society? I don't know where you live but everybody everywhere has an opinion on topics such as those, opinions strong enough to influence who they vote for and associate with. You really want to rank what happened on Raw up there with that?

Bottom line is, offended or not, we can all agree that at least the WWE are prepared to take risks again now. Not every idea will work but hopefully something will stick that will get everybodys attention.

Default CM Punk saying he didnt care Jerry was dead in those minutes crossed the line

CM Punk crossed the line in that promo saying he didnt care Jerry was clinically dead in those few minutes when CPR was being done. Thats just too harsh and I felt bad for Jerry. I cant believe WWE are using Jerry's heart attack on tv this is just as bad as when Michael Cole took the piss with Jerry's dead mother

Obviously Jerry agreed to it and they did it so well I thought it was great.

For those still whining about this JBL has given us something to consider which will probably hold true once the ratings and SS buyrates come in.

Here's a man who knows thew difference between kayfabe and reality tweeting about it.

JBL: "For those whining about Dr Punk last night, I once gave Eddies mom a heart attack on Mothers Day-then set attendance record in LA! #heat"
I can't believe how PC "wrestling" fans have gotten. It really is ridiculous.
