Re: Punk & Heyman mocking King's heart attack

Some of you are what's wrong with society as a whole. You are complete pussies. I don't care if Lawler did, or didn't know about it. He's the same guy that once dumped Whiskey down the throat of Jake Roberts on live tv when roberts was a known alcoholic. So come on here shoveling your "that was offensive to me" bull shit.

Re: Punk & Heyman mocking King's heart attack

I had found an article about this from bleacherreport and a part of it made some sense to me.

Quote:
If it was fine with Lawler, then it doesn't really make sense for anyone else to be offended. Fans are constantly complaining about the PG era and the fact that nothing seems realistic anymore, but as soon as Punk takes a real-life situation and makes it a part of the show, there is immediate backlash because it's perceived as a mean thing to say.

The entire point of Punk's character is that he's a mean guy who doesn't care about the feelings of others, so I felt like his criticisms of Lawler were well done and relevant. Had the WWE brought out a guy like Antonio Cesaro and had him blast Lawler for the purpose of heel heat, then I could see the outrage, but Punk has a history with Lawler and a reason to say what he did.

Aside from Punk's comments, a lot of people took issue with Paul Heyman feigning a heart attack. It was admittedly a bit corny as everyone knew that Heyman was faking, but Heyman has always been that way. It's the heel's job to get on the fans' nerves and I have to believe that Heyman sufficiently did that on Monday.
If Lawler wasn't okay with this, then I'm sure that it wouldn't have happened. Yeah Punks actions were disrespectful, but that's the point of his heel character. I mean no disrespect towards Lawler, I was glad to see him back and well and I went with it and boo'd Punk in my head, but I wasn't actually offended by this promo. I'm sure in all actuality Punk, as well as everyone else, is glad to have Lawler back.

Well, we will know if it's true if Foley isn't there on Sunday.

Jerry probably agreed to it himself, so who cares? Moving on...

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?
Nice analysis but just wanted a simple yes or no answer if you don't mind.

Re: Punk & Heyman mocking King's heart attack

i've tried to resist commenting but the amount of butthurt on this thread is too much.

you are all over reacting...like majorly. I spent most of the time during the promo laughing at Punks comments...why? am I a sick person? no in fact i've been known to get over emotional and, being a woman, can be prone to bouts of being over sensitive. I found it funny because it was a great use of dark humour, laughing at others follies and problems, this can also be attributed to ones own problems.

He sounded like an old school heel, getting as much heat as he could, he had a feud with Lawler which was cut short by his heart attack so what a great way to pick it up again by punk being a heelish prick and making fun of him.

If you have watched Punks DVD he talks about SES and how he wanted people to legit hate him, I imagine the same thing goes here.

Heels are meant to be unbearable pricks of the highest caliber, he did his job. So many people complain about heels being just like the faces with little to no heelish qualities yet when punk does the opposite people poop their pants because "he hurt my fweelings"...yeah well look at all the fucks I give, seriously, grow a backbone. Its using real life to further a storyline with the consent/willing participation of lawler, Lawler continued to joke about it all night, he isn't phased, he's a fighter and an old school wrestler who understands the notion of "there is no such thing as too much heat".

If he doesn't give two flying fucks why should you? the rant was aimed at HIM, not all heart attack sufferers, just him.

also if you are offended then GOOD, you were meant to be, that was the point. YOU nor anyone else is above being worked. end of.
