Yes, it was real. But that should only concern the one that had that heart attack (try saying that out loud!), Lawler. Since he was ok with it I don't see the problem.
If you want another example, there's Top Gear. It's a motoring show in the BBC, and it's one of the biggest TV shows in the world. Well, one of his presenters, Richard Hammond, suffered a terrible accident in a jet-propelled car that nearly killed him. Jet when he was back on hte program discussing the incident, the other two co-host hilariously mocked him about the accident. I'm sure some people here would be outraged by that, since "lots of people die in car accidents" and "car accidents aren't funny".
People seem to bring up 2 points. It was real and it was bad taste. 1st, yes, It was real, but as I said before if Jerry is ok with it there's no problem there. And it was bad taste, yes, but that's the point of 2 evil fucks mocking his rival for his bad luck.
BTW, fuck Punk for defending the firing of Abraham Washington. Rape jokes are OK and can be funny. And I didn't enjoy the segment that much, the idea wasn't that entertaining or original, and only Heyman and Punk overdoing it and some on-liners made it funny.
