Re: Punk & Heyman mocking King's heart attack

Well, given Lawler must have OK'd it all, I dont think its my place to feel it was too far over the line for him, its his choice.


However, I can say it was unfunny , and the whole segment was very poorly delivered, and on that score Punk has really jumped the shark. he was a clever heel back when he feuded with Hardy,his segments were well delivered and he was 'good' at being 'bad'.

Now hes just like every other other struggling for heat also rans who cant cut a decent promo . That it was both him and heyman, they kings of the mic, makes it all the more disappointing.

Think about it.
Yes.

Do you guys realize that TV characters constantly kill other TV characters right? Would you class MURDER as entertainment? Murder is serious, murder it's not a joke!

It was a really great promo in the end and that what counts

Think about it.
Who the fuck wastes a miracle with reflection when it can be utilized? /mcmahon

I think I will. First of all, JR would have to full remission. And be up and about and physically TV worthy a lan King is now. That said of course it's an act of entertainment. Is it a good one? THAT would depend on JR antagonizing punk like lawler was (storywise) and would Punk be his ass, heel character. WWE spinning it to desire a pop from the crowd would disgust me. That is an different argument of trying to program fanbase, versus reacting to them.

Also, can we get AW back? Can Piper vouch for him or something?

WWE is filled with 'Good Ol' Boys' in power positions. It is just how it is, and I will keep calling WWE, Pro Wrestling in USA, as well as some of it's fans out on this because it is bollox. I do notice an apparent effort being made to mitigate this somewhat, but time will ultimately tell.

It is being reported that Jerry Lawler was an emotional wreck backstage and was furious at CM Punk & Vince. He had no idea CM Punk was going to come out as he was led to believe that it was going to be a welcome back segment. Lawler had to tag along and improvise to make amends. Its said that Foley was extremely angry with Punk during his portion and tried his best to defend Lawler in his promo. Foley yelled at Punk and Vince and told them that it was sick that they had footage and used it to further Punk's heel character. Vince responded by relieving Foley of Survivor Series duties completely. To make up for the controversy, WWE were discussing taking the belt off of CM Punk to John Cena right before he would snap Cena's record as punishment. CM Punk would then once again enter a feud with Ryback to help elevate Ryback in a squash. More news as we get it.
