On his most recent podcast, Jerry "The King" Lawler strongly hinted that WWE would be going in a "different direction" for this year's Hall of Fame, specifically suggesting that he will not be returning as host of the show. As I tweeted earlier today (follow me @RajahNews), when texting with a rajah.com source, this indeed does appear to be true as Lawler has been told that his services will not be needed as host with WWE instead opting to move forward (for this year at least) with co-hosts. The source added that the plan is for Corey Graves and Renee Young to fill those places at the 2019 Hall of Fame.
On an somewhat unrelated topic, we were also told that there have been discussions with WWE officials to take Renee Young off of the Raw commentary team. I'm working to find out more on her future as Raw color commentator so take this as an unconfirmed report for now.
