John Layfield “Loved” Punk/Heyman Segment On Raw; Wishes He Could Have Done It

Not only was John Layfield not offended by the CM Punk/Paul Heyman angle on this week’s Raw, he wishes his character could have done it. In a blog posted to remember the late Eddie Guerrero, JBL posted the following:

This angle with CM Punk and Heyman faking a heart attack last night, I loved it-this is something Eddie would have loved also. People get worked up, and it is their choice to be offended by whatever they choose. I thought it was awesome, I just wish JBL could have done it!

Eddie did as much for me personally as he did professionally, he was a truly amazing guy.

The story of Chavo and Eddie getting into a heated argument backstage over the mother angle when Chavo started ribbing Eddie that Mrs Guerrero should take the clothesline was hilarious-it’s just that no one saw it but me.

The match we had at Judgement Day set the attendance record at the Staples Center at the time, all off the heart attack angle. Again, if you are offended by the CM Punk story-it’s your choice, but I got a guy wishing I was dead and several profanity filled Tweets over it. Really? Over a TV show, some have zero class when they can be keyboard warriors anonymously.

Also, the filming of Jerry as he was receiving medical care got some really nasty comments. If that was an NFL game or any event that had a ton of cameras around, do you think that a guy who has been told to film everything who has a camera on his shoulder would not film it. I thought it was all done very well and was one of the best Raws I have seen in some time.

    Hurry, somebody say something bad about JBL!

    true words, by a true man. very true words right here people, i was not offended at all; matter of fact i "loled" a little

    Nice one JBL. There's a lot of common sense there. Some people do get far to offended by the slightest little thing, especially these days where it's so easy to jerk a knee and post a whiny bitchy comment somewhere (the irony of this statement is not lost on me).

  • Dave Barton

    I’m typically very vocal in my dislike of Layfield, but I do agree with him. It was just a way to put more heel heat on Punk. Its not like Phil Brooks did it backstage on a genuine personal level…it was a character doing it to another character, based on something real, and I can damn sure guaranty that Lawler has a big enough mouth to have said beforehand if he was against the idea.

    • Rob Shaeow

      Very true Dave, I'm sure jerry wouldn't have agreed to it if he didn't want to or feel comfortable. At the end of the day when they are on T.V they are playing characters not themselves and sometimes people forget that.

    JBL wrestling God.

    Nobody batted an eye when the Boogeyman ate the mole off Jillian's face. Bring back Jillian and her mole!

  • Tex

    JBL was always a bully anyhow.

    JBL is in my too 5 of heels, and CM Punk is almost in my top 10. Idk about you but the blame he put on Jerry was perfect. “what happens when you fight the best in the world? You die?” Jebus! That was ridiculous. I have a feeling he is going to keep the belt until he ties with Cena for the one spot, and that’s when Cena gets the heel turn (it’s the perfect storm)
