Re: Punk & Heyman mocking King's heart attack

I thought it was great. The WWE finally was offensive again instead of shooting rainbows everywhere. Also, you know King had to back this 100% or it wouldn't have happened.

Re: Punk & Heyman mocking King's heart attack

So how is abortion a taboo then? People talk about that all the time.

I still don't see how even the issues you mentioned should be taboo at all on a scripted show. It's not real... nobody needs to get offended by a character...

Re: Punk & Heyman mocking King's heart attack

Only way it could be better is if King didn't okay it and he quits next week

Re: Punk & Heyman mocking King's heart attack

Do people really not get that it was SUPPOSED to be highly offensive?

Re: Punk & Heyman mocking King's heart attack

Do you people remember when Undertaker crucified SCSA? Yeah, that was offensive to christians. But nobody gives a shit about that now, becuase it's a scripted show, it's just entertainment.

I agree with everything you have said, I am just confused as to what people see as taboo's in real life.

And I'm not offended by it. Some people are and that's their deal. I'm saying that I don't see how it can be called an edgy segment when it wasn't edgy, at least not to me. I just found it all -worthy. I'll give them this though, they have got people talking, for all the wrong reasons though. If anything was going to offend me it would be that horrible video promo they showed to set the whole thing up. The fact that they were filming while he was getting resuscitated, now that's offensive. I still have no idea what the hell they were planning to do with that footage had he actually died. But yeah, it was just completely unnecessary. Punk didn't need it to get heat and in the end, it didn't even work and was all for nothing.

@Karma101 - You don't see how things like abortion and necrophilia are taboo issues in society? I don't know where you live but everybody everywhere has an opinion on topics such as those, opinions strong enough to influence who they vote for and associate with. You really want to rank what happened on Raw up there with that?

Re: Punk & Heyman mocking King's heart attack

Bottom line is, offended or not, we can all agree that at least the WWE are prepared to take risks again now. Not every idea will work but hopefully something will stick that will get everybodys attention.

CM Punk saying he didnt care Jerry was dead in those minutes crossed the line

CM Punk crossed the line in that promo saying he didnt care Jerry was clinically dead in those few minutes when CPR was being done. Thats just too harsh and I felt bad for Jerry. I cant believe WWE are using Jerry's heart attack on tv this is just as bad as when Michael Cole took the piss with Jerry's dead mother
