Re: Punk & Heyman mocking King's heart attack

I thought it was WAY worse when Vince mocked JR for his Bells Palsy. That was mocking just for Vinces pleasure.

This was not to mock Lawler. This was something they had planned out ahead and Lawler guranteed was fine with it, probably pitched ideas on what to say.

They weren't mocking the fact that King is ok. They were mocking his near death experience. Which is a serious situation.

Re: Punk & Heyman mocking King's heart attack

We all know Lawler was in on the skit. The king is getting paid a lot of money. Out can mock anyone for that fame and exposure to TV

And Lawler approved it, else it wouldn't have happened.

If Lawler doesn't give a shit, I don't give a shit.


121 SUPERBOWL TV SPOTS! Civil War, Batman V Superman, X-Men!

You can blame bloody football for the delay of this weeks podcast as we wanted to get in all the TV Spots for the 2016 Superbowl! We're talking Captain America: Civil War, Batman V Superman, X-Men Apocalypse, Ninja Turtles, Independence Day Resurgence, The Jungle Book and others probably!

We also touch on news concerning Rogue One, Zack Synder defending his version of Superman, Deadpool's rave reviews and more!

Re: Punk & Heyman mocking King's heart attack

I didn't see anything wrong with mocking/taunting him about it. I didn't mind the jokes and all that, BUT, I did think Heyman faking a Heart Attack was fucked up.

I wouldn't say all that. Vince is a nut.

Nobody was hurt during the segment, no damage was done to anyone or anything, it was just fantastic heel work. What we have here is a bunch of people who talk about how they wish the product was more 'edgy' and 'hardcore' and then start crying and getting upset when the company actually deliver for once.
Excellent post.

Exactly! Anyway, Lawler was being flippant himself towards his heart attack by making jokes and mentioning the ambulance was his ride etc. and I'm sure that's what he needed. Making light heart over something is often an easy way to get over it. Lawler didn't care, it wasn't offensive, it was simply an opportunity for Punk and Heyman to be bad guys and let the fans hate them even more. And, judging from the content of this post, they did a marvellous job.

Re: Punk & Heyman mocking King's heart attack

good thing I missed this. But like others said if Lawler approved it than guess theres not a problem.
