Jerry Lawler Talks About How WWE's Raw Commentating Team Was Put Together


-- Jerry Lawler recently spoke to the Memphis Commercial Appeal, discussing how he is back in a prominent role with WWE - rejoining the Raw telecast as an "analyst" alongside commentators Vic Joseph and Dio Maddin, as of this coming Monday's season premiere.

"I got a call about it Tuesday morning from Kevin Dunn (WWE's executive vice president of television production). He said, 'I've got a proposition for you. It may be good news, and it may be bad news.' He knows I don't like to travel a whole lot anymore, so that was the bad part. I said, 'What's the good part?' He said, 'We want you back on Raw.' He told me it's for however long I want to do it, so that sealed the deal."

"It was (Raw's executive director) Paul (Heyman's) idea to put Vic and Dio on Raw. Apparently, what I was told, Vince (McMahon) said, 'You can't throw these two new, young guys on our flagship show. Call King.' That's how it happened."
