Dinner With the King Recap – Lawler’s Original Finishing Move Revealed, Cody Rhodes’ Independent Success, Will Lawler Write A Book? More!
Lawler is joined on today’s show by his co-host Glenn Moore. This is part two of their live recording at Lawler’s restaurant in Memphis.
A fan speaks up, saying he’s a big fan of Cody Rhodes. The fan continues by saying he’s happy for Rhodes given all the success Rhodes has had on the independent scene, and he feels that Rhodes would have never been able to show this type of personality on WWE programming.
Lawler points out that Rhodes doesn’t have the reach now that he had when he wrestled for WWE, but that hasn’t slowed him down financially. Rhodes has told him personally that he’s making more money now on the indies than he did in WWE.
The fan also asks Lawler if there’s any heat between him and his old broadcast partner, Jim Ross due to both of them being in the restaurant/sauce business. Lawler laughs and says there’s no heat at all. Ross had terrible luck with his venture into the restaurant business, and he warned Lawler about the risks of owning a restaurant prior to Lawler opening his own.
Luckily things have been working out pretty well for Lawler thus far, and he points out that he’s not marketing his restaurant’s sauces at this point so he and Ross aren’t really in the same business at all.
