Pure and simple, cheap heat. If you're not booing Punk by now that was just for you!! :cool:
Wasn't a fan of it myself, having just watched it i did think it was in bad taste and a little bit unnecessary. CM Punk is good enough that they don't need to have him pick up some cheap heat off a guy who nearly died on live tv a month or so ago! Not the end of the world of course, but i think they should have let Jerry have his moment and not turned it into part of an angle.
This segmant was tasteless and in bad nature.It wasn't pushing the envelope ala attitude era,it was a desperate attempt to salvage a failed heel turn
WWE will win the WrestleCrap award for sure this year with this stunt
This forum comes after watching the episode of Raw last night. I realize that promos and shoots are meant to create a deeper depth of a wrestler's character, but sometimes things go a bit too far. Last night, Jerry the King Lawler made his return after missing nine weeks of being at the announce table, due to a heart attack. The King came out, and started giving a nice speech about his appreciation of the support and how thankful he was to be back in the WWE, and then out comes CM Punk and Paul Heyman. Don't get me wrong...this part I was ok with. It draws in heat. But what I found to be despicable was Heyman faking a heart attack in the middle of the ring. You have a guy in your company who suffers a major heart attack, happens to be clinically dead for a few minutes, and you think the right thing to do is poke fun at the situation. I don't blame Punk and Heyman. They're out there doing their jobs. I blame the writers and Vince McMahon for telling Punk and Heyman to act in that manner. I realize you want heat from Punk, but to act as though Heyman is suffering a heart attack as well...only to stand up, be totally fine, and claim he "only needed a few minutes not nine weeks to recover." In my eyes, the WWE, the writers, and everyone could have played that off with a little more class. Surely, in real life Punk has a heart enough to care for someone who had a heart attack. Let him break Kayfabe for just a minute or two and be thankful that Lawler is there and is healthy. Does anyone agree with this? Or am I the only one that felt that was a terrible display?
