Re: What the actual fuck WWE? Mocking someone who had an heart attack? Really?

This.

King even said when the ambulance was backing up into the arena "Oh look my ride is here" because he's okay and happy to be alive.

People need to understand that King is fine with this being put into the angle. If you feel offended then you must think wrestling is still real to you... dammit.

Tonight, Jerry agreed to be part of that segment. Let's keep that in mind.
Why does everybody say that? Not saying I agree what happened to the Big Show, that was totally out of line, especially when his dad did die half way through that story line but saying it was very Attitude Era like just discredits the Era for no reason at all.

It should remain that way? Are you serious? This is exactly why wrestling and wrestling fans have a bad name.

The point of pro wrestling is to suspend your belief. To make you think you're watching something that's realistic and believable. Vince ruined that long ago, and instead created the image of wrestling that is just fake bullshit with no morals. Yet he does hypocritical bullshit like BE A STAR.

Unbelieveable. And then McMahon wonders why he's been shit on by the general public for well over 20 years now.

Think Show's dad died years before actually.

And let's not forget Big Boss Man feeding Al Snow his own dog! I just remembered that one... Man Big Boss Man was an ass

Re: Punk & Heyman mocking King's heart attack

You'd have thought lawler had actually died judging by some of these comments. It's not even in the same stratosphere as the "eddies in hell" comments. I actually found Rey Mysterio's pathetic "I'm gunna win it fa Eddie" title reign way more offensive.

I guess Punk will do anything to shake off his reputation as a ratings poison.

I find Chavo using Eddie's name whenever he can offensive. Example is at BFG

Nobody gave a shit that he won, cue namedrop of Eddie for a cheap pop

Must say I'm surprised people feel the need to be offended by that, I'm sure King himself would tell you to grow some balls.

Re: Punk & Heyman mocking King's heart attack

they've done worse, i just found it just crap, i cant see what it was there to generate? cheap heat that Punk already has? just seemed unnecessary, if he'd have come out wearing one fake boob and a bald cap during the cancer cheque segment, now that would have been OTT...

I'm pretty sure...no...I'm VERY sure the whole wrestling being "fake" in the conventional means takes of care of that

which is awesome, the whole thing is fake, if it wasn't there wouldn't be storylines, writers or bookers doing the whole thing backstage and being one of the backbones of pro-wrestling, or at least, the WWE, the whole B A STAR it's complete borderline hypocrisy and imho it should not exist at all with backgrounds such as attitude era

if people want to "suspend disbelief" in a classy way by watching Wrestling and enjoying the whole "choreographed" show they should go to New japan pro wrestling and the like, WWE already made their name and precedent by doing over the top wacky borderline trashy stuff, it's complete hypocrisy and idiocy to negate all of that and create a "tasteful family show that cares about sensitivity"

Quote:

because he doesn't want to accept the fact that WWE it's not a mainstream entertainment business and he shouldn't appear to a demographic that in all honestly doesn't even care about anything regarding sports to begin with, aka, the birth of the PG era

it's the same way linda mcmahon is running for senate while her own money is being made of something as the WWE, spending 90 million of dollars why denying health care to their own workhorses, the ones that put money in her pockets to begin with and pretending she has nothing to do with it
