edit: I did have an undecided option when I started this poll last night, I don't know what happened to it.
They are playing it very close to the line. I can't help but think they wouldn't have done this whilst Linda was campaigning, they made the decision about when Jerry was returning 2 weeks after his heart attack back in September. Maybe it's a coincidence, maybe it isn't.
The way they did that tonight didn't progress CM Punk's respect storyline further than they could with other easier alternatives. The purpose of that was shock value and trying to get CM Punk over as a heel in the worst possible way.
My take on that was it was very, very cheap heat.
Did WWE cross the line with Jerry Lawler tonight?
Blood, sweat and no tears. I'm a man.

Re: Did WWE cross the line with Jerry Lawler tonight?
No. The fact that so many people are saying it was disgusting etc is a tribute to how good it was. People want the product to get edgier then complain when something very edgy happens, calling it disrespectful and in bad taste. He's alive, he's fine, it's not real, he's obviously agreed to it, probably even suggested they use it in an angle himself.
Re: Punk & Heyman mocking King for his heart attack
Merged the three threads into one.
The fact that people are defending this is disgusting. Then again, wrestling is trashy. And fuck, Vince McMahon is one sick dude. The same guy that exploited Eddie's death, had satanic sacrifices performed on TV, and practiced necrophilia.....he has no boundaries.
