Michael Moody, the son of the late William Moody (aka Paul Bearer) posted on his Facebook page that WWE did in fact ask for approval for last night's angle with CM Punk and The Undertaker, but suggests it was presented in a different light.
"If anyone is wondering, yes, WWE did come to us wanting approval for tonight's storyline," says Moody. "The way it was presented to us was ok. Seeing it on screen was a different story. I don't even know what to say."
His brother, Daniel, added that it was "totally different."
Drew's take: For the first time during this angle, I feel that they really, truly, have gone too far. I was not okay with it.
