Jerry obviously gave it the green light, so no.



YES! YES! YES! YES!

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
From a booking standpoint, I kinda see your point. It's just not for me, the way they went anyway (same for Big Show in 99).

There's other ways to work a shock/edgy angle if that's what they were looking for.

Agreed completely, because edgy always = better rite?

Like an 80 year old woman giving birth to a hand and Kurt stalking Sharmell and Big Bossman hanging and Katie Vick and all that other stuff that is looked back on with "what the fuck were they thinking" by most fans.

This sort of stupidity is the issue here (not calling you out in particular btw). This "PUNK MOCKED A GUY WE WACHED ALMOSTT DI SO EDGIE XXXXD NEW ATITUTDE EARA" horseshit.

Thing is I don't think it's the biggest deal here, WWE have done a lot worse. But yeah, some people found it uncomfortable, understandable considering not too long ago we watched him nearly die on camera. Hell I felt uncomfortable when Cole was mocking Lawler's dead mom, and she sure wasn't my mom. It wasn't the "wow what a good heel" feeling either, but a "I really don't want to see this" kind.

And people keep bringing up Shiek and Slaughter's heel turn during the Gulf War. Well

1 - I thought most people felt that was a really cheap way to get heat (not only anti-America but also "defecting" to the enemies side during a war)
2 - Times change, people have smartened up. When things go "too far" they don't get mad at the wrestler (hell just look at last night's crowd reaction) but instead get mad at the writers

Honestly it's been said in this thread already but the worst part about that whole promo was that they actually recorded the doctors giving CPR to Lawler when he was medically dead. What kind of chucklefuck gave the green light to record someone dying backstage?

Re: Punk & Heyman mocking King's heart attack

I noticed a lot of people said that it's ok since Jerry agreed with it, but I feel it's not the point, when it comes to my personal taste I don't like to be feed this kind of trash by television, i think it was unecessary, cheap and not funny by the least.

Still, it's not as bad as talking about Lawler dead mother was.

I want wrestling storylines to be 100% fake, I'm sick and tired of "reality" television.

Re: Punk & Heyman mocking King's heart attack

shit, if they keep doing stuff like that I'll have to start watching the whole show again. offensive stuff = ratings. it may be shitty TV but non wrestling fans don't respect pro wrestling anyways so who the fuck cares about what they say? I prefer pro wrestling to be fun, even if that means retarded, over the top and offensive. if I want serious competition I can watch MMA, which is non scripted.

Oh so your offended by what punk did? Does that make you want to boo him? If it can bring such emotion out of you, then the wwe would be stupid not to do it. Plus Jerry was fine with it

Re: Punk & Heyman mocking King's heart attack

Most people complain about pg but then when something like this happens it crosses the line. I understand that Jerry had a real heart attack but if you think this is too much, then you haven´t seen anything.
