On this week’s edition of Dinner With The King, Jerry “The King” Lawler offered his thoughts on Alexa Bliss hosting an insulting retrospective of Bayley this past Monday on Raw called “Bayley: This is Your Life!”
Lawler on the segment (13:30 mark of the show):
“Sometimes things happen that just don’t turn out like you envision it. I’m sure that’s exactly what happened there. Here’s the other thing: it’s live T.V. That’s a double-edged sword, believe me.
When something doesn’t turn out the way you planned it, there’s nothing you can do about it. It’s there. It was live and everybody saw it. That was just one of those cases. You just gotta move on.”
On Booker T saying “this is hard to watch:”
“You know what, that could have well have been a Vince [McMahon] line. I’m not sure because I wasn’t there. But either way, that was the right thing to say. It was probably conveying the thoughts of everybody watching it.”
The meat of this week’s show is all about Lawler’s invasion of ECW in 1997 (beginning at 30:20). He talks about making his surprise appearance at the ECW Arena, debating Paul Heyman on Raw, and more.
