Re: Punk & Heyman mocking King's heart attack

No they didn't, Punks supposed to be a bad guy and Jerry was obviously fine with it or they wouldn't have done it at all. I really don't see what the issue is? You're not supposed to like it that's the whole idea...

There's such a big difference between things like those that I don't see how you can really compare them in that manner, even if you think both things are despicable. I'd bet that a joke about people starving wouldn't get the same wide criticism though, despite that world famine is far more important than a single guy getting a heart attack and surviving.
In either case, they're encouraging business by exploiting a serious matter that drums up business, whether it be the fears of breast cancer or mocking a man's near death experience. In either way, they're doing something sleazy to make money.

They're actions aren't drawing positive attention to themselves, that's the problem. They figure "if we get a reaction, we're good." Except this isn't a positive reaction.

I just really don't understand why, when they had so many other routes to take, they took this one, which is pretty much the least tasteful. THAT is what I ultimately have the biggest problem with. This whole thing wasn't necessary, it just makes the Fed look like dicks.

Re: Punk & Heyman mocking King's heart attack

Who cares about the Attitude Era "having" this kid of stuff. It's a new time. Get with it. And so what if Lawler was ok with it? Should've never been an idea for TV in the fucking first place. Crowd was dead and didn't care. So nothing "good came out of that segment. Stop with these horrible excuses.

Re: Punk & Heyman mocking King's heart attack

Lawler has no shame, thought this was known already.

Whatever, much like Punk throwing fists at that rando fan you'll all forget about this come Monday. It's just something for you guys to talk about throughout the week instead of complaining about what a lame show it was like people usually do.

Not supposed to KAYFABE like it. There's a huge difference. Here, people legit dint like the fact it was a thing that was set for tv. And whether he was fine with it or not, still shouldn't have happened. Meaning should've never have been brought up as an idea from the beginning.

Re: Punk & Heyman mocking King's heart attack

If anything, I was disturbed by the video package of the paramedics trying to revive him backstage and showing him leaving in the ambulance. I thought that was tasteless and it didn't need to be on TV. As for Punk and Heyman, I was only uncomfortable with Heyman faking a heart attack. Other than that, I didn't have an issue with it. I do understand why some people on here thought it was over the line though.

Re: Punk & Heyman mocking King's heart attack

Yeah it was disrespectful, but at the end of the day it was just a cheap heat tactic. They wouldn't have done anything without Lawler's say-so. I doubt they would have even thought of doing that so he must have given them the idea for it.

Re: Punk & Heyman mocking King's heart attack

That thread is the perfect example why we will never have a new wrestlingboom. The fans are either unimpressed or they are upset and that is the reason why WWE doesn't care about the older fans anymore, you can't impress them anymore because they've seen it all.
Look at the Ryback vs Brad Maddox match. Maddox was thrown into the ambulance and nobody gives a fuck. Imagine if WWE did the ambulance segment 15 years ago, everybody would go nuts. This is the reason why most fans are not excited about WWE anymore because they've seen it all.
This is the only way to make WWE more interesting to the older fans. You can not draw heat anymore if you pin John Cena and make him your servant in your own stable with a big N because most fans are too old for this shit to be impressed.
Look at the posts of some older fans, they are upset like when they were little kids 20 years ago when the evil Macho King made the poor Ultimate Warrior lose his championship

Re: Punk & Heyman mocking King's heart attack

Anybody who voted Yes damn well better not be the same ones complaining about wanting the attitude era back.

I loved that skit, I thought it was brilliant. Jimmy Korderas called it 'nuclear heat' and he was right. I don't think WWE could have possibly put Punk over as a heel more.

King even said he loves puppies again on Raw, and with this adult story line between AJ and Cena.... it seems like the WWE might be getting some of that attitude back. If it keeps this way, who knows, WWE may actually become interesting again.
