Dinner With the King Recap – Reuniting with Jim Ross, Kane Making Most of Latest Run, Personal Issues Draw Money, More!
Lawler is joined on this week’s show by his co-host Glenn Moore.
Lawler informs that it’s 99.9% certain that he and Jim Ross will be reunited at the commentary booth for the 25th Anniversary edition of Monday Night RAW on January 22nd. He points out that part of the show will broadcast from the original home of RAW, The Manhattan Centre, so he assumes that he and Ross will be calling that part of the show.
He points out that he has so many great memories of working in The Manhattan Centre, including his interactions with Stu and Helen Hart as well as the initial ECW invasion. He’s very excited about the thought of reuniting with Ross, and he hints that he might wear his old King outfit, the jacket and crown that he wore during the initial years of RAW.
Moore mentions that he was at Monday Night RAW this past week where he was able to see one of his all-time favourite performers, Kane. Lawler points out that Kane is in the middle of a push right now, working a main event angle on RAW, and this will probably be his last big run before moving into his career in politics full time.
Lawler thinks Kane will make a great Mayor in Knoxville, and he recalls the time when he ran for Mayor in Memphis. He says that not winning that mayoral race was the best thing that never happened to him, because he’s sure that would have impacted his career greatly, and he loves the career that he went on to have after losing that race.
