Why is it okay for some wrestlers to bury others and not okay for others?

I noticed that for some superstars it's okay for them to diss others such as Becky insulting Edge, Charlotte, Nia, etc. Everyone calls her cool and cheer her for doing that. Fans loved when CM Punk and AJ Lee did their pipebombs and talked crap about the roster/company. But they hate when Rock insults Corbin or Bray. They hate Miz for "burying" Bayley and Sasha. Does it depend on the wrestler? Fans love Becky and Punk so it's acceptable for them to talk shit but it's annoying when Miz does it. Or does it depend on who's getting buried? People love Bray and Bayley so it pisses them off to see their favorites look bad.

I mean I would not even call what Miz did a burial. People overreact and call things that are not even a burial, a burial. Now I did not watch smackdown only the Miz TV segment so maybe there was more to it but that seems like a standard segment with one great line by Miz "who are you Brock lesnar?"
PrinceofPush and Southerner like this.

I guess one thing is active wrestlers "burying" other wrestlers, depending on their character. Another completely different is retired wrestlers burying active wrestlers who are in need of fan love (like Rocky burying Corbin). Becky talking trash about Edge didn't make her look cool, too. Specially as it was kinda the opposite of her persona, as she is that girl with attitude but who pays respect to who deserves her respect. But yeah, that's it.

In other words, the OP is clearly pissed off that fans enjoyed watching the likes of CM Punk, AJ Lee, and Becky Lynch roast other people; so he feels the need to make (yet) another thread whining about “hypocrisy” since he’s upset that folks support wrestlers he dislikes

I don't really agree with you entirely, but in the example you gave, it is to do with which way you are punching. CM Punk was punching up at Cena/McMahon/HHH, so that's fine. You could argue Miz & Rock we're punching down, that's less ok.

How was Miz punching down? I think Sasha/Bayley are more pushed and well liked than him. AJ Lee burying the Bellas wasn't punching up either. AJ was equal or bigger than the Bellas at that point.

If you can't hang, you deserve to be buried. It should be survival of the fittest. Reminds me of when Billy Gunn was getting pushed hard in 99 and got brought back down to Earth by the Rock

This. If a wrestler is a superior mic worker and the other person sucks oh well too bad. Fans shouldn't hate on them just like it's not fair to hate on a team who is too good and demolishes the other in a one sided victory.

A wrestler deserves to get buried on the Mic if they can't come up with anything. Not The Mizs fault that Bayley sucks. What's he's suppose to do, kiss her ass? Shit talking is apart of pro wrestling. If you can't handle it then you don't deserve a push.
