Re: Punk & Heyman mocking King's heart attack

I didn't laugh like that in freaking months ! no, years !!
this was as funny to me as the anger managment thing !!

but I don't get why people are angry about it !! I mean, we joke even about jesus ! why can't we handle a really really good joke like this ?!

#amItheonlyonewhohatesjerrylawler?!

TNA is growing BIG and standing strong ! best wishes for them in the future !!

wwe has become so much better with a lot of my favourite wrestlers featured in it everyday ! but .. most of them are still misused ... but I still try to enjoy it as much as I can ...

Re: Punk & Heyman mocking King's heart attack

From what I've seen, the big issue seems to be that the heart attack was real. People say that if it was a fake heart attack then it would be okay to make fun of and have a storyline for. But real or fake, wouldn't mocking a heart attack still hurt the feelings of everyone who has had one, or known someone who died from a heart attack?

So if that's the case, who are you really worried about? Obviously not the fans. Seems they're just concerned that King's heart attack was real, and that it shouldn't be mocked.

So it seems at Summerslam, Brock lesnar wants a piece of me... should I be afraid? I mean, the man ended the streak after all. But I've fought the odds time and time again... I will NEVER BACK DOWN and I will NEVER QUIT! At SummerSlam, if it's a fight that you want, it's a fight you gon' get! So Lesnar!!!! IF YOU WANT SOME COME GET SOME!!! You're all about eat, sleep, conquer the streak. But me, I'm all about HUSTLE LOYALTY AND RESPECT, JACK! So WWE universe, you can rest assured because the CHAMP IZ HEEEURRRR!!!

Re: Punk & Heyman mocking King's heart attack

Not sure if this has been mentioned before, but, anyway, I honestly think they would have asked Jerry if it were okay to include this in the storyline. I don't think they would actually just walk out and legit make fun of the situation.


Still, having a heart attack isn't something to joke about, really....I get that they are heels and they do these things to piss off the crowd and get heat but there are certain lines that just shouldn't be crossed....not that this is the worst thing they have ever done, but, still, probably a very personal thing for people who know someone and possibly have lost someone from a heart attack.....

Re: Punk & Heyman mocking King's heart attack

Gotta love the irony here. For at least the last year or so, people have complained about how the product needs to push the envelope a little. Then, they do and now all of a sudden people are up in arms over it. Can't have it both ways, fellow comrades of the IWC.

I was perfectly fine with it, these angles are always taken advantage of. I remember reading about Ric Flair when he returned from the plane crash that broke his back and nearly killed him. He returned to the TV studios in Greensboro to find all sorts of get-well cards for him. He said he was only keeping the ones from Raquel Welch and Joey Heatherton. He throws the others on the floor, and all the good will he had built up was gone immediately.

This is quite despicable on wwe's part. This is even worse then Katie Vick.

Well, there is pushing the envelope, and then there is pushing the envelope.

For me, it wasn't anything personal because I don't know anyone who has had a heart attack or died from one, so it didn't 'hit home' for me. Just saying, stuff like that is serious and could really be a jab to people who have had one/know someone who has had one and possibly died from it.

It was part of show and meant to get heat, that is definitely understandable, but, I dunno, things like that don't really bother me personally, but could be sensitive to people who have experienced it.

There are other ways they could push the envelope. Much worse ways included, lol.

Re: Punk & Heyman mocking King's heart attack

Lawler let his mother's death be exploited in 2010 by Michael Cole in their feud. Apparently, Lawler lives and breathes kayfabe (not surprising, given he's from the old school) and is comfortable using his personal trials to advance a storyline.

Given the 2010 incident, I knew Punk would make fun of his heart attack before it happened.
