Re: Punk & Heyman mocking King's heart attack

Still failing to see how this can be classed as edgy when it didn't even get a reaction lol. Different doesn't necessarily mean edgy. Whole thing just screams desperate tbh and the best part about it all is that Punk didn't even need it. I doubt it's going to get him more heat. People would have reacted to it then and there and they didn't. By the time the main event came along he was back to splitting the crowd with Cena. But wait, DAT HEAT. Yeah right.

Re: Punk & Heyman mocking King's heart attack

The only thing I have a problem with is Punk doing the X with his hands, trying way too hard to break kayfabe for the 16 people in the audience who might know what that signal means.

What I have more of a problem with is the fact they casually filmed what could have been the King's death backstage, as people have said, what the fuck were they planning on using that footage for? Who gave the go ahead to keep filming, or did someone just find the footage and be like "Well he's okay now, let's use it for a pity montage." That in itself would turn me off the product.

As for the CPR segment, stop crying, it's an angle on a television show. It's a dickhead character being a dickhead to another character, and sure this issue was laced with reality, but that's what intensifies it. That's the edge WWE has over other shows is that they can use real life issues like this for maximum effect. Or are you guys saying WWE is too reality based to ever use these kind of issues in their show and should stick to storyline free watered down television?

"cmpunk: jerry loler glad your back buddy but i still dislike u" mchael cole: "how can he say he dislike him?? after a heart attack this time punk has gone to far" jerry: "i cant belive him he rly hurt my feelings"

There's your rewritten segment guys where are my royalties

So you're complaining about it being in bad taste and offending you yet you don't think it is edgy?

Re: Punk & Heyman mocking King's heart attack

Punk was getting booed loudly. I don't know why people are saying he got no reaction.

Re: Punk & Heyman mocking King's heart attack

Does anyone else find it hilarious that Cena got a split reaction against the guy who made fun of Lawler's heart attack?

CM Punk: "I saved a mans life. #longliveheyman"

"You people are pigs. I saved a mans life tonight. This isn't something you joke about. PIGS. #learnCPR"

"Fact: @JohnCena is the doctor of thuganomics. I'm a real doctor, and I know CPR."

One fan commented, "Jesus, Paul Heyman really does hate Jerry Lawler." Heyman replied:

"Jesus already knew that!"

Another fan commented that Heyman and Lawler will never get along. Heyman replied:

"HE STARTED IT!"

Suck it.

It didn't offend me and I'm not complaining. I'm simply giving my opinion. It didn't entertain me in the slightest. I also don't understand where people are getting the edgy thing from because it wasn't edgy at all. Just because it was different from the norm doesn't automatically make it edgy. Like I said before, was Katie Vick edgy? No, it was just flat out stupid, same as this. At least Necrophilia is something of a taboo subject for society. Mocking somebody for having a heart attack isn't edgy or controversial or any of that stuff. It's just stupid.

No. How many people even discuss something like that never mind get squeamish about it? Necrophilia, abortion, things like that are taboo issues that get people talking and cause controversy. Mocking somebody for having a heart attack isn't even in the same discussion. The hell are you talking about lol?

Not really, considering it's a scripted show.

If he said out of character "I wish you died" yeah, then you can complain. But for now you're overreacting.
