The King Has Left The Building! Has Jerry Lawler Parted ways With WWE?
The King has left the building, controversial figure and WWE Hall Of Famer Jerry ‘The King’ Lawler has reportedly parted ways with the WWE. But why has he left his home for the past 20 years (on and off) ? Rumor has it, it is due to a pay dispute with the higher ups in the company.
WWE higher up Kevin Dunn made the decision to pull Jerry from WWE’s pre-shows. It is a well known fact that Jerry was on a very hefty deal and despite WWE making more money this year than last year, the decision has been made to invest in youth and trim the deadwood to make room for the likes of Corey Graves and Mauro Ranallo.
Although I will be sad to see Jerry leave if it is indeed true, I for one am excited at the prospect of seeing Corey and Mauro get even more air time. But could the WWE have not offered Jerry a cheaper deal, I mean yes he has been around forever but he has more talent at commentary in his little finger than the whole of David Otunga (Sorry David).
Failing that there is always TNA, with TNA’s spiritual home of Memphis being the same as Jerry could we see a partnership in the future? Well I for one would be excited to see him alongside ‘The Pope’ and Josh Matthews.
