Look, I get it, okay? The heel coming out to interrupt something that is meaningful to somebody else is a common move. I get that, but that doesn’t mean that it’s always needed. Last night was one of those times. Two months. Two months that Jerry Lawler was gone for because of his heart attack and you do this to him? You make an angle out of his heart attack? You have Paul Heyman mock the heart attack? Are you freaking kidding me?
Jerry Lawler could’ve died that night in Montreal and for about 20 minutes give or take, he was. Nobody made an angle out of Chris Benoit or Owen Hart when they died. Now before any of you say what about Eddie Guerrero? There’s a difference. Rey Mysterio was trying to pay homage to him, win the belt in honor of Eddie. That was built more to honor Eddie Guerrero than to discredit him. I get that Vince is capable of sinking that low as we’ve seen him stoop to lows before. I just hoped that this was one that even a cold-hearted, soulless bastard like him wouldn’t sink to. Okay, let’s be fair about that last statement. He has no heart because even the cold-hearted have a filter. Eric Bischoff was and is a scumbag, but at least he didn’t resort to necrophilia angles or mocking a guy that nearly died in front of a live crowd.
What made them think that all that transpired last night was a good idea? Was this their attempt at trying to be edgy and innovative at the risk of being controversial in light of Vinny Mac’s wife losing yet another election she had no chance in hell of winning or had any business taking part in to begin with? Or is this the WWE being what we already suspected with them trying to copy TNA’s storylines in them being quite simply Desperate?
You see Vince, THIS is what everyone is talking about when they’re saying that you’re out of touch. That you don’t have your finger on the pulse of what the fans like or want. Hell, you haven’t had your finger on that pulse for the last couple of years. Face it, Vince, your creative skill that you’ve claimed to have had all this time is out of gas and you think that what you did to a guy that nearly died 2 months ago proved something, it did. It proved that you really did inject the WWE with a dose of poison. It just wasn’t the NWO like in that angle years ago. No, that poison’s name is Vincent Kennedy McMahon. I guarantee you that if you were the one that had the heart attack and died, nobody would be wanting an angle involving your death. Well, I’m sure that there are probably a select few that would not only welcome it, they’d be ready to dance on your grave. Of course, I’m pretty sure there are a lot of guys that would say that they would love to drive a stake through Vince’s heart but are convinced that nothing can kill him. Than again, I’m sure if the day comes where Vince croaks, his death will be much like his life: No Shame.
Now I’m not really mad at CM Punk and Paul Heyman or at least as much as I am towards Vince. Heyman and Punk are just the dogs and Vince was the one that gave the okay and let them off the leash. And I don’t give a damn if Jerry Lawler gave the okay for it. It doesn’t mean that it’s not in bad taste. The segment as well as Heyman’s mock heart attack was in bad taste and so is Punk’s twitter rants about it. All his talk about being the best in the world and always putting down Vince. Congratulations to CM Punk and to Paul Heyman though because not only are you both no better than Vince, you’re to a degree worse. And as far as Best in the World goes Punk, you might as well scrap that now because as far as I’m concerned after Monday night, you’re just another tatted up asshole and Heyman pulled a low that’s even beneath Eric Bischoff. It’s cheap heat and something that is above both of them or at least I thought they were. Turns out that they’re much like the crap they pulled: cheap. That’s as much as I’ll say about Heyman and Punk.
As for Vince, you wanna know what cost your wife the election? You wanna know who was responsible for her loss? All you need to do is look into a mirror. Even Jerry Jarrett thinks this was low class and cheap. As bad of shape as the WWE is in, I’ve been rooting for them to recover and to rise back up. I’m not so sure if I’m really rooting for that anymore after last night. You can take everything and I mean EVERYTHING that Michael Cole has ever said or done as his heel character along with everything involving Vickie “Pig-Vomit” Guerrero and John Laryngitis, combine all of those things and that wouldn’t measure to what they did to Jerry Lawler on Monday Night. I don’t get offended by stuff on TV easily, but this was the one exception. Vince McMahon is killing his own product. He once said during the Corporate Ministry bit when he was revealed as the higher power that there is no low he won’t sink to. I’m starting to think that line wasn’t just script. If this is the crap you’re gonna pull, Vince, then not only am I saying that the WWE is going to fall and it’ll be Vince’s fault when it does, but I’m calling my shot out right now when I say that to you Vince McMahon, you deserve to have your company fail you repulsive, soulless, deplorable, absolute horror of a human being.
