Have some respect, a man almost died! Luckily CM Punk saved Paul.

Re: Punk & Heyman mocking King's heart attack

Jerry obviously agreed to it - so what are you all getting your panties in a bunch for? I'm losing more faith in humanity than I gain, reading these boards.

No, we understand perfectly. Just like Big Show was almost paralyzed by Kevin Nash and they used it as an angle afterwards. Almost. That word greatly alters the context.

Re: Punk & Heyman mocking King's heart attack

Well, like many of you, i'm not a Lawler fan, and he never entertained me (or maybe when he was leaving the manhattan center because of the burger king chants!). But i was waiting for his return because like foley said, the guy was dead and then he beat the death. 9 weeks later he comes back because he loves the business and i guess he loves the guys around here (except M.striker). When punk music hit, i immediately thought in my head " wow son of a bitch". Great timing, and it worked with me.
About that heart attack parody. Vince and Lawler are very good friends, Heyman worked before with lawler (ecw invasion), and punk worked with lawler few months ago. I think there was nothing wrong with using that because that was COMING FROM LAWLER DAMN IT! Remember when cole was speaking about lawler's mother who passed away. That was coming FROM LAWLER too DAMN IT.
What is wrong with that.Is the heyman and punk's acting level too high, you actually believe the words they say, you know in real life?

I thought it was a great segment because Lawler, cole and Foley were playing face at the perfection. And Punk and Heyman'work, it was just perfect.

Re: Punk & Heyman mocking King's heart attack

I was more disgusted with the fact that WWE was filming Lawler while he was being worked on backstage.

Also it's funny considering they pulled something like this right after Linda lost the election.

Re: Punk & Heyman mocking King's heart attack

Oh grow some balls man, people on here are constantly moaning on here about the lack of edginess and for a return to the Attitude Era days, well thet promo was exactly like the AE days now you are complaining, is anyone ever happy on this place? And do you really think they would have done that if King was against the idea? He let Cole mock him about his mothers death a few days after it happened, King is old school like that and i'm sure he is happy to help the product in any way, so to summarise this thread should actually be about PRAISING Jerry and the fact he is willing to do anything to help this product.



SETH ROLLINS: YOU DESERVE IT!!!



Top 5 (At the moment):

1. Seth Rollins
2. Daniel Bryan
3. Sami Zayn
4. Luke Harper
5. Mizdow

Re: Punk & Heyman mocking King's heart attack

Thinking about it more, I found everything expect Heyman's fake heart attack fine. It's still kind of okay since Lawler okayed it, but still, if they desensitize fans to serious incidents, they might think the next heart attack's an angle.

Re: Punk & Heyman mocking King's heart attack

I thought it was hilarious.

I thought it was more tasteless to show footage of King's actual heart attack in the style of a promo video.

I remember Vince Mcmahon humiliating and forcing Trish to strip while she was crying in the ring, that to me was way worse than this because it made you think how much further it can go and made you really feel bad for Trish. I thought this was peanuts compared to that but these are the times.
True, Vince-Shane feud was awesome, I give a crap about Trish 4 real cause she had big push bak then. Vince said 2 Linda SD 00 stuff was scripted. Regal got involved Trish-Steph NWO 01, the stuff was great bak then even Steph used a mop on her on RAW. Most women didn't like Trish strip segment cause they think it's sexist.

Well unfortunately the night Lawler had the heart attack, the thought of it being a work crossed my mind, and I'm pretty sure many other people's minds too. That's just how wrestling is. With what we know about it, almost anything can look like a work now.
