It played out more like an inside joke. Jerry did come back awfully fast. But perhaps it'd have been best left off the airwaves.

Crossing which line??? I am sure, that Vince and also Lawler knew about that angle.
Sure, some people are wondering and complaining about that angle, But: this makes WWE interesting - because we're not used to such angles in the post-Attidure-era.

Wouldnt suprise me at all. He is probably already pushing for a in ring return to Vince.

I too thought that the promo video with close-up film material from King's heart attack was a bit tasteless.

Then again, I felt that Punk's & Heyman's rude heel promo was not too much but also that it wasn't a total success since not enough heat was given. Realize that people are what they are but nevertheless I was a little disturbed the way many guys in the audience were actually cheering to Punk & Heyman.

I'm only half an hour into RAW atm but tbh, I can't wait to see this promo.
From what it looks like, it is just edgey TV and they will of 100% had Jerry's permission.
It's just a way to get Punk over as a heel more anyway so they're doing what they need to do. Not like taking the piss out of medical conditions hasn't been used before...

It's pretty close too bad taste. But most of all, they didn't do it very funny.

Just seen the skit, I think they were making an inside joke at the fact that WWE filmed all those bullshit CPR scenes not taking the piss out of Jerry.. Just my opinion on it...

- The talk about Paul Heyman and CM Punk mocking Jerry Lawler's heart attack on RAW continues on Twitter with several wrestlers weighing in such as Steve Austin and Chris Jericho. The Baltimore Sun's Arda Ocal spoke with some Superstars and got their reactions:

Steve Austin: "I believe in pushing the envelope in an aggressive fashion. But when a guy damn near dies at ringside, let it go. You look at all the contributions Jerry Lawler has made in this business: from a work standpoint, a promo standpoint and then as a broadcaster. I think that's pushing the envelope in the wrong direction. There's better ways to go get real heat than that."

Chris Jericho: "I think it was pretty obvious, don’t you? I kind of expected it. Punk’s promo was awesome. It’s wrestling so you knew it would end up as an angle sooner or later. I got the same complaints when I did the alcoholic angle (earlier this year with CM Punk). It would be like being mad at "Breaking Bad" because the dad was a drug addict or something. It’s just a TV show, after all."

Lance Storm: "Thought it was poor. Both he and Punk are capable to get real heat, no need to sink so low. Also thought it was out of character for Punk so it hurt. Punk is about Best in World and himself. Why bother joking about heart attack it goes nowhere. Interuption was okay and in character. Fake heart attack was cheap and pointless."
