Punk & Heyman mocking King's heart attack






I'm speechless. I wanted the product to get edgier, but this? This is plain disrespectful, not entertaining, and a complete lack of sanity.

I can't help it but think this is a jab at Linda for losing somehow, so she can never run for senate again. Absolutely despising.

Does anyone actually think this is acceptable?

I wonder if they are going to continue with the "BA★" campaign after this nonsense.

Did WWE cross the line with Jerry Lawler tonight?

edit: I did have an undecided option when I started this poll last night, I don't know what happened to it.

They are playing it very close to the line. I can't help but think they wouldn't have done this whilst Linda was campaigning, they made the decision about when Jerry was returning 2 weeks after his heart attack back in September. Maybe it's a coincidence, maybe it isn't.

The way they did that tonight didn't progress CM Punk's respect storyline further than they could with other easier alternatives. The purpose of that was shock value and trying to get CM Punk over as a heel in the worst possible way.

My take on that was it was very, very cheap heat.

No they didnt

The only thing that kinda bugged me how punk said he stopped carreing what other people thought yet he still begs for respect....

Re: Did WWE cross the line with Jerry Lawler tonight?

No. The fact that so many people are saying it was disgusting etc is a tribute to how good it was. People want the product to get edgier then complain when something very edgy happens, calling it disrespectful and in bad taste. He's alive, he's fine, it's not real, he's obviously agreed to it, probably even suggested they use it in an angle himself.

Re: Did WWE cross the line with Jerry Lawler tonight?

Yeah. Its too soon to make fun of heart attacks. What really took it over the line was the "beat you to death" line Punk did, incredibly poor taste....

....With that said I LoL'd at the whole segment, it was mean beyond words. I'm sure they wouldn't have done it w/o Jerry being okay but Vince has gotta set some boundaries B, this was a new low.

Re: Punk & Heyman mocking King for his heart attack

It was disrespectful and wrong to do so soon, but Jerry would have agreed to it so fair game imo.

I found it rather amusing. Obviously if they had done it without his permission my opinion would be different.

It's just really really really cheap heat, WWE have proven time and time again in the past they are perfectly happy to use it.

Re: Punk & Heyman mocking King for his heart attack

If King agreed to it, why are you getting mad for him?

He's a big boy. I'm glad he survived and that he's back, but the segment was money.

Re: Punk & Heyman mocking King for his heart attack

Merged the three threads into one.

The fact that people are defending this is disgusting. Then again, wrestling is trashy. And fuck, Vince McMahon is one sick dude. The same guy that exploited Eddie's death, had satanic sacrifices performed on TV, and practiced necrophilia.....he has no boundaries.
