With each passing week, the WWE continues to push the envelope on decency and respect as it pertains to the late Paul Bearer, real name William Moody, who died on March 5. Since the untimely passing of Moody, the WWE has used his death as part of their storyline with CM Punk and The Undertaker as they buildup to their high-profile match at WrestleMania 29. According to a March 18 report by WWE.com, CM Punk took his deplorable antics a step further by continuing to disrespect the late Paul Bearer on Monday's episode of RAW. Punk mimicked Bearer's voice and purposely dropped the urn that allegedly has Paul's ashes in it.
Punk's performance on RAW, has upset many WWE fans and critics, who feel that the WWE has gone too far with this storyline. In fact, Fight Sports Examiner has received several messages from fans who are sickened by the WWE's lack of respect for Moody's family, friends and loyal fans.
In addition to Punk's performance on the past two episodes of RAW, the WWE has Punk performing these same antics at live events. The passing of Bearer has become a cheap angle to get "heat" on Punk, who really doesn't need something so degrading to get the fans to hate him. Before this feud with The Undertaker, Punk was the top heel in the WWE. In fact, he held the title for 434 days, which is the longest title reign in many years.
Unfortunately, this Paul Bearer angle really reflects the inability of the WWE creative team to come up with compelling storylines.
Do you readers think the WWE has gone too far?
