Its said that Foley was extremely angry with Punk during his portion and tried his best to defend Lawler in his promo. Foley yelled at Punk and Vince and told them that it was sick that they had footage and used it to further Punk's heel character. Vince responded by relieving Foley of Survivor Series duties completely. To make up for the controversy, WWE were discussing taking the belt off of CM Punk to John Cena right before he would snap Cena's record as punishment. CM Punk would then once again enter a feud with Ryback to help elevate Ryback in a squash. More news as we get it.

Doesn't make sense, WWE is McMahon.

Re: Punk & Heyman mocking King's heart attack

Some of you are what's wrong with society as a whole. You are complete pussies. I don't care if Lawler did, or didn't know about it. He's the same guy that once dumped Whiskey down the throat of Jake Roberts on live tv when roberts was a known alcoholic. So come on here shoveling your "that was offensive to me" bull shit.

Re: Punk & Heyman mocking King's heart attack

I had found an article about this from bleacherreport and a part of it made some sense to me.

Quote:
If it was fine with Lawler, then it doesn't really make sense for anyone else to be offended. Fans are constantly complaining about the PG era and the fact that nothing seems realistic anymore, but as soon as Punk takes a real-life situation and makes it a part of the show, there is immediate backlash because it's perceived as a mean thing to say.

The entire point of Punk's character is that he's a mean guy who doesn't care about the feelings of others, so I felt like his criticisms of Lawler were well done and relevant. Had the WWE brought out a guy like Antonio Cesaro and had him blast Lawler for the purpose of heel heat, then I could see the outrage, but Punk has a history with Lawler and a reason to say what he did.

Aside from Punk's comments, a lot of people took issue with Paul Heyman feigning a heart attack. It was admittedly a bit corny as everyone knew that Heyman was faking, but Heyman has always been that way. It's the heel's job to get on the fans' nerves and I have to believe that Heyman sufficiently did that on Monday.
If Lawler wasn't okay with this, then I'm sure that it wouldn't have happened. Yeah Punks actions were disrespectful, but that's the point of his heel character. I mean no disrespect towards Lawler, I was glad to see him back and well and I went with it and boo'd Punk in my head, but I wasn't actually offended by this promo. I'm sure in all actuality Punk, as well as everyone else, is glad to have Lawler back.

Well, we will know if it's true if Foley isn't there on Sunday.

Jerry probably agreed to it himself, so who cares? Moving on...

I think I will. First of all, JR would have to full remission. And be up and about and physically TV worthy a lan King is now. That said of course it's an act of entertainment. Is it a good one? THAT would depend on JR antagonizing punk like lawler was (storywise) and would Punk be his ass, heel character. WWE spinning it to desire a pop from the crowd would disgust me. That is an different argument of trying to program fanbase, versus reacting to them.

Also, can we get AW back? Can Piper vouch for him or something?
Nice analysis but just wanted a simple yes or no answer if you don't mind.
