Jerry Lawler On Why The Undertaker Might Have Been Backstage At SummerSlam


On this week’s edition of Dinner With The King, Jerry “The King” Lawler talked about whether The Undertaker was backstage at SummerSlam. As noted, Undertaker was in New York, and his wife, Michelle McCool, took a photo backstage with new SmackDown Women’s Champion Natalya.

“I did not see or hear him mentioned at all [backstage at SummerSlam],” Lawler said. “I dress in the talent relations room where at one point or another everybody on the card came through that room and I never saw him.”

While Lawler did not see Taker backstage, he revealed why he may have been in New York.

“Here’s something that I just realized. He may have been there because they were doing scans for a new game,” Lawler stated. “Everybody that was on the show that night, myself included, had to be scanned. This company, it’s not the 2K people, it’s a different game that’s gonna be coming out next year. So everybody had to have their face scans and their body scans.”

On this week’s edition of Dinner With The King, Lawler and Glenn Moore dedicate their episode to the late Dusty Rhodes. Lawler talked about their interactions over the years, including booking against each other in Memphis. Plus, Lawler goes over some of the matches they had over the years.
