Nope, because 1 million viewers didnt tune out because of that. They tuned out the quarter after.

wwe get's a little edgy for a refreshing change and people can't handle it, lol. i guess all the "be a star" and pink ropes bullshit has turned many into huge vaginas. some people must still think they are actually going to live forever and can't handle anything too real.

So 745,000 people tuned in for the segment, and by the end 876,000 left. That is a huge amount.
Probably all the soccer moms watching the show with their 8 year olds turning the TV off because they think such a thing is inappropriate. I wouldn't be surprised if a bikini contest lost a large amount of viewers as well.

lol that segment was great! I didn't find anything wrong with it. I missed the part where they showed the video package of Lawler. That is sick!

Don't know if this has been posted before (wouldn't surprise me if it wasn't).

According to a report by Bryan Alvarez of The Figure Four Weekly Newsletter, the angle on Monday Night Raw this week where Paul Heyman and CM Punk mocked Jerry Lawler's heart attack was planned several weeks ago and was approved by everyone involved including Lawler and Mick Foley.

You all may make fun of people with "IT'S STILL REAL TO ME DAMN IT!" for the young kids or marks or whatever, but you guys are even worse than them. You have this deep-seeded legitimate rage for Cena and his fans to the point where you let it affect your day to day life.

Grow up. Seriously.

Has nothing to do with the commercials, immediately announcing the 8 man tag match and then backstage segments before the tag match. Noooo. Notice how they tallied all those lost viewers to that segment rather than everything between it and the end of the tag match?

People trying to fit numbers into their assumptions, instead of the other way around.

This is why I have no real issues with it, but there will always be folks who still think it is politically incorrect. Just because something taken from real life is mocked in a story line that doesn't mean that that's how anyone in the show truly feels about it. The issue of the heart attack has now become a part of a fictitious story that is turning it into something else entirely. There's nothing wrong with thinking it's messed up to mock someone who had a heart attack generally, but at this rate it's just actors playing their parts now. To those who do take this personally, you had might as well think that Jerry, himself, is messed up for allowing a storyline to be based off of something tragic like this and then that leaves you with no one to feel sorry for really. Maybe Lawler IS messed up individual. Maybe he just cares about the business and KNOWS that it's all acting at this point, now. Either way, it was good drama.

I guess so. I do remember at the end of the show it was like nothing even happened since there were plenty of shots of guys crossing their arms over their head and cheering Punk on.
