On the latest episode of Dinner With The King, Jerry Lawler revealed that TNA reached out to him when he began working on a limited basis with WWE.
Lawler said that Jeff Jarrett contacted him when the news broke earlier this year about his reduced role in WWE.
“During that time, I did get a call from Jeff Jarrett just saying, ‘Hey, we [TNA] were just wondering if you re-signed with the WWE or not?’ It was one of those things that I got right back to him and said I did re-sign with them [WWE].”
Lawler thinks TNA was looking to reunite Lawler and Jim Ross.
“Without a doubt, I’m sure that’s what was in their minds and it was possibly in the mind of J.R.’s as well,” Lawler said.
Lawler also said that his next WWE appearance will be on the Battleground pre-show and co-hosting Talking Smack with Renee Young after the pay-per-view.
Lawler also discussed Talking Smack being completely unscripted, being left off the commentary team of WWE 2K18, and why TNA needs to get rid of their six-sided ring. You can listen to the episode below.
