Dinner with the King Recap – Less Balor/More Demon, Ric Flair’s Legacy, Working with Flair in Memphis/WWE, More!
Lawler is joined on today’s show by his co-host Glenn Moore.
Lawler says that he’s very excited about SummerSlam this Sunday, and he’s also excited to be working the Kickoff show on the WWE Network. He admits that for a while he thought SummerSlam needed to be ‘bigger’, but over the last few weeks WWE has done a good job of building the PPV and now Lawler is very excited to watch the show.
He says he’s anxious to see the reformed tag team of Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins take on Sheamus and Cesaro for the RAW tag team Championships. He’s also looking forward to The Demon vs. Bray Wyatt because he’s been waiting for The Demon to make its return for a while now. He says that we need less Finn Balor and more Demon moving forward.
Lawler informs that he’s going to be wrestling Cody Rhodes for the ROH Championship next week. He wonders if Rhodes can actually put the ROH Title on the line against a WWE-contracted talent because Lawler has full intentions of beating Rhodes and claiming the ROH Title. That would be a very embarrassing situation for ROH in Lawler’s opinion.
