Re: Thoughts on WWE using death to help build feuds?
For me, the use of real family death is distasteful.
My main problem with it is that it's just "cheap heat". Some insulting comment about a dead family member, or turning up on RAW dressed as a recently deceased roster member ... it gets a decent crowd reaction on the night, but aside from that all it is, is remembered as "one of the times WWE disrespected a dead guy".
I don't care whether the deceased, or their family support the inclusion of it in an angle. My opinion would be to avoid it, as it's a short term measure to develop a feud that'll be over in a few weeks ... yet, the disrespect will be on film forever.
