Re: Punk & Heyman mocking King's heart attack

Thought it was quite uncool, but then again Lawler must have okay-ed it, so... okay!

No they never. It's called getting heat. Lawler was there to see it happen so you know he okayed it. People say they want the WWE to be edgy again and when it does they complain.

Re: Punk & Heyman mocking King's heart attack

I thought the whole thing was a disgrace I'm sorry but there was no need for it but the WWE are the biggest hypocrites out there. Considering they just had a massive campaign for Brest cancer I really hope they got fined for that promo

There were a lot of things which were brutal but they were staged and the angle themselves pulled you in. They didn't use cheap heat methods such as that.

Anyone else getting slightly iritated by people keep saying that?
The wife of Brian Pillman interviewed on Raw 24 hours after the death of her husband.
Now try to top that with any low moment you and all other smartasses and this comes from a big Attitude Era fan.

I am just sick of all people posting for months how they want edgier TV like in the AE and when something happens you post that AE never stooped that low.

Melanie Pillman interview, continuing Over the Edge, using the daughter Dakota for a extreme love triangle storyline between Goldust, Marlena and Pillman with the little girl appearing in the segments, Jim Ross appearing on TV right only a couple of weeks after the Bell's palsy when he couldn't properly speak and still cut promos as heel where you could barely understand him, Owen Hart proudly presenting a "Owen 3:16" shirt after almost paralyzing Steve Austin

Stop pretending like AE was so special because they were so edgy but never stooped that low. I listed many moments that were even lower.
The Attitude Era had many "tell me he didn't just say that" and "tell me he didn't just do that" moments and on Monday it was one of these moments.

Attitude Era was dirty and without taboos and that's why they had great ratings, PPV buys and kicked the ass of WCW because we liked those kind of segments

Re: Punk & Heyman mocking King's heart attack

To be honest, I don't see what the problem is. Did I find it funny? Not really. But look at like this, you can't really get angry for Lawlers sake because he obviously endorsed the segment. And as for it being offensive to people who have had a heart attack or lost someone to one, I don't see how the WWE spoofing a heart attack is any different to a sitcom or movie containing a scene where someone pretends to have a heart attack. South Park has offensive stuff like that all the time and yet half the people calling this segment offensive probably love South Park.

Re: Punk & Heyman mocking King's heart attack

I found the entire segment tasteless. I'm sure Jerry agreed but I still felt very uncomfortable during that segment. My complaint is the video package. The fact that they recorded Jerry while he was dying (Lawler was clinically dead for 15 minutes apparently) was blatant exploitation. It's even worse that they aired it on tv. I'm all for an edgier product but I don't really recall the attitude era using real life near death situations (Droz being paralyzed was never aired, Owen Harts fall never aired, etc) for cheap heat. Life goes on though and as long as Jerry Lawler is okay than I guess we should move on.

RAW: John Cena, Ryback, Daniel Bryan, Antonio Cesaro, Dolph Ziggler

SMACKDOWNRandy Orton, Christian, Wade Barrett, Damien Sandow, AJ Lee

IMPACT WRESTLING: AJ Styles, Austin Aries, Jeff Hardy, Bobby Roode, Bully Ray

Yeah...big difference between the two.

I've already chimed in on the heart attack scenario, but this struck me as interesting.

The fictional universe of Walter White is supposed to be the real world and the 'fictional' stories are based in reality. Should ex-junkies or those with relatives that have died of Meth abuse take issue with the show? This mentality can carry through to so many things...and does as we see through the responses in this thread or the myriad issues brought forth by 'watchdogs', concerned parents and the like.


I love professional-wrestling.
