Re: Punk & Heyman mocking King's heart attack

I haven't seen it but based on the discussion (and some time to think about it) I have come to the conclusion that this just shocked the hell out of people.

WWE literally went 180 degrees by using this angle. No one is used to this so it's like someone walking up to you and smacking you across the face as hard as they can.

To deny Linda's senate run didn't have any effect on the product at this point is asinine. There is no way in hell they would have done this two or three weeks ago.

And as much as I think the real Phil Brooks is an asshole, I don't think even he'd be this low class of a person to mock Jerry Lawler's heart attack. CM Punk on the other hand is the scummiest cowardly trolling heel there might have ever been (gives Jericho a run for his money) and would not hesitate to stoop so low. So in this case, this angle is fine with me from a character standpoint. How could anyone cheer Punk after THIS? That's the point.

Shock value. The REAL Vince never really left us, he was just constricted by the Senate run.

Re: Punk & Heyman mocking King's heart attack

Nothing wrong with it if Lawler wanted to do it.

That's pretty much all there is to it.

Re: Punk & Heyman mocking King's heart attack

I think it's great because it pushed line, atleast in this PG era. 15 years ago this type of thing was standard practice, I seem to remember a couple guy taking digs at J.R. when he had a stroke.even more recent heels like Edge or Chris Jericho would have taken advantage of the situation.

Early numbers for the CM Punk/Jerry Lawler segment indicate that it was a massive ratings hit, scoring a big 3.9. Because of this Vince has forced creative to come up with more edgy, possibly offensive angles and characters to create buzz and draw in new fans. Ideas pitched so far are for A.J Lee to be gang raped by Cena, Daniel Bryan and Punk, new gimmicks such as new developmental talent playing aids/cancer victims, and a big idea pitched by Triple H is a holocaust angle where people who under 6ft 2 are kayfabe "exterminated" by Triple H on screen. This creative movement was spawned after Linda's second campaign failure, Vince was very frustrated with the results and he plans on ushering in a new era.

Re: Punk & Heyman mocking King's heart attack

I really enjoyed last night. CM Punk didn't linger too long on the heart attack angle and I suppose that's cleaned off that slate, its what happened with Mick Foley and Punk that really got my attention though. Those two have great chemistry on the mic

Making jokes about a guy who died for 20 minutes isn't funny imo.
Funny, Big Show at the funeral never crossed my mind when I said 1999. I mean the whole year full of these storylines.
I never said this was supposed to be funny, it was supposed to be disgusting and it worked. Punk & Heyman never tried to be funny, they tried to be assholes and it worked.

I never said that this promo was one of the funniest I have ever seen in my life but I am glad this segment happened, especially after Linda lost, because it may be a sign that we will see edgier stuff in WWE now

That report surely can't be serious.

I'll bring up this thread the next time a PG debate pops up.

Most of those proposed angles sound far fetched/dirt sheet bullshit at this point still but we shall see. I totally called this though that Vince would get way edgier after the Senate fail.

Regardless of whether the above happens or not, we're definitely going to see some more edgy stuff in the coming weeks IMO. Maybe even a TLC match on RAW, how cool would that be?
