Who Approved the Fake Heart Attack on RAW?, Why People Are Upset and More

- The controversial Jerry Lawler angle from Monday’s RAW where Paul Heyman and CM Punk mocked his heart attack was actually booked several weeks ago and approved by all parties that were in the ring – Lawler, Punk, Heyman and Mick Foley.

One WWE source said the whole angle was a perfect example of “how Vince McMahon thinks.” Very few people inside and out of the company were shocked that WWE did the angle because of how Vince is and because WWE has done much worse in the past.

There were very few wrestlers in WWE who were upset with the angle. The majority of the heat within WWE came from WWE’s decision to air the video that had audio of Lawler snoring as he had the heart attack and footage of Lawler backstage as doctors tried to bring him back to life.

    That is because the WWE has no class. They will exploit people that have given everything to the company (Jim Ross?).

    Once again people its tv. Heyman and punk are great together.

    As I said yesterday, I don’t think there is anything wrong with it. It’s ENTERTAINMENT for fuck’s sake. The problem I have with it is its execution. Terrible performance by Punk and Heyman.

    I think they did a great job on the Fake Heart Attack segment, but that whole Jerry Lawler snoring audio was a bit scary come on they really didn’t have to show that part

  • Ben

    The audio was a little much, however it really drove home how seriously close to death Lawler was and how lucky wrestling fans are to still have the King around. Defied the odds and beat death, again lucky. JERRY,JERRY,JERRY!!!

  • Mick

    Yeah the audio of Lawler’s snoring like sounds, followed by the backstage footage at that night, was too much. The actual in ring segment and stuff, was entertaining. Now with this piece of news, knowing that Lawler himself had a part in this segment happening, this should lessen criticism levied at WWE for letting this segment go on.

  • Y2J

    I thought it was great, but only because they were all ok with it.

    @Lisa are you fucking stupid? Never mind that was a stupid question. Punk and Heyman did it exactly how they should’ve. It was suppose to look fake and over done you fucking moron.

  • Stryker9

    Honestly, If Lawler was ok with angle I don’t think anyone else should be upset. He could have said no. As for them airing audio of him snoring and some of the footage of them doc’s working on him…..what’s wrong with that? Jerry Lawler is VERY lucky to be alive and I don’t think there is anything wrong with them showing how serious it was.

    Y2J, how dare you insult me. You are a 14-year-old for fuck’s sake. A classroom needs you more than this site does. You are stupid spoiled kid. Fuck you.

    Hey guys I’m a cunt.

    I enjoy how all the Facebook likes are making the path to their FB known to the world. Noobs.

  • Jr

    When did they show the audio and video I didn’t see it. Was it before or after the heart attack angle?

  • D-INCARNATION

    If Jerry said no he’d be in the dog house, he probably felt he owed VKM and couldn’t say no without retaliation.

  • SdotC

    @D-INCARNATION I doubt that. First of all, it’s been documented that Lawler is the one guy who doesn’t take shit from McMahon, and Vince doesn’t even bother with him for that reason. Furthermore, as I pointed out in another video on this subject, Jerry Lawler made fun of Bruce Prichard having a near-fatal heart attack earlier this month. If you believe in karma, maybe that was Jerry’s, but either way, if he can make a joke about someone he’s known for 20 years nearly dying, I don’t think he’d be so hypocritical as to detest being the butt of the same humor

  • carol

    Although the fake heart attack was planned……IT WAS MORALLY WRONG AND BAD TASTE!!!!

  • RCmaster305

    there you have it Lawler aproved now will everyone shut the fuck up about it being “offensive” to Jerry as if they know him personally its tv,its good buisness and im sure as hell something like this segment will happen again

  • Opie

    @Lisa Yes We All know You’re a cunt

  • Chelsii.

    @opie we all know you have a small penis. #needledick

  • Hawkins

    HA! I WAS RIGHT! lol
