Austin and Others Comments on Heyman’s Fake Heart Attack

Posted by Marc Middleton in WWE News
Wednesday, November 14th, 2012

– The talk about and mocking ’s heart attack on RAW continues on Twitter with several wrestlers weighing in such as and . The Baltimore Sun’s Arda Ocal spoke with some Superstars and got their reactions:

Steve Austin: “I believe in pushing the envelope in an aggressive fashion. But when a guy damn near dies at ringside, let it go. You look at all the contributions Jerry Lawler has made in this business: from a work standpoint, a promo standpoint and then as a broadcaster. I think that’s pushing the envelope in the wrong direction. There’s better ways to go get real heat than that.”

Chris Jericho: “I think it was pretty obvious, don’t you? I kind of expected it. Punk’s promo was awesome. It’s wrestling so you knew it would end up as an angle sooner or later. I got the same complaints when I did the alcoholic angle (earlier this year with CM Punk). It would be like being mad at “Breaking Bad” because the dad was a drug addict or something. It’s just a TV show, after all.”

: “Thought it was poor. Both he and Punk are capable to get real heat, no need to sink so low. Also thought it was out of character for Punk so it hurt. Punk is about Best in World and himself. Why bother joking about heart attack it goes nowhere. Interuption was okay and in character. Fake heart attack was cheap and pointless.”

WWE’s wrote the following on Twitter:

“Watching Paul Heyman makes me feel like I need hand sanitizer”

Heyman replied:

“I think @Matt_Striker’s comment about me is low brow, uncalled for and insensitive. MY FEELINGS ARE HURT!!! cc: @CMPunk”

    I’m so sick of hearing people whine about this segment. If CSI featured a child that was brutally murdered, would everyone start throwing a fit about that? IT’S A TV SHOW!!!!! Last House on the Left showed a 10 minute scene of a 16 year old girl being raped, followed by her parents murdering everyone that was involved with it….that didn’t cause half the stir that this segment caused. Everybody do your best to remember that WRESTLING IS SCRIPTED!

    I must also mention that Jerry Lawler is ALIVE AND WELL. Jerry knew the segment was going to happen, and was completely fine with it. Personal life mixes with storyline in many cases. I respect Jerry Lawler, but I don’t think he is mad about the segment in the least bit. If the guy that was supposed to be offended isn’t offended, then I don’t understand why everybody is crying about how low brow and unclassy it was…
