I wasn't offended by it. Lawler is OK now and they wouldn't have done it without his say so. (at least I think so)
However, I am against doing it because it blurs the line between reality & storylines in a disturbing way. For example, while I was grossly offended by the "Eddie is in hell" bit they did with Orton heading into Mania 22 (which to me was far more tasteless than this), my biggest problem with it was that it was so over the line, that some fans were honest to God speculating that Eddie's death was an elaborate work.
And there in lies my problem. If you go too far with something like this, not only do you run the risk of offending people, but to me, it kind of takes away from the seriousness & severity of what actually happened and reduces it to just being another wrestling storyline.
EDIT: I actually missed the footage they showed of Lawler having the Heart Attack and having CPR performed on him. Thank God I did. Why on Earth would the WWE show that? That is just morbid, ghoulish, and weird.
WEEKDAY WARRIORS OF WRESTLING NEW WEBSITE
There are no lines when it comes to wrestling,Or atleast thats how I like it best.I enjoyed that promo and I don't care what anybody says,It just makes Punk and Heyman look even more sick and vile which is perfect for them as heels.
"All you lords and ladies, still think that the only thing that matters is gold.
Well this (torturing people) makes me happier than all your gold ever could!
And that makes me happier than all her sapphires,
so go buy yourself a golden hand, and FUCK yourself with it!"
