Lawler is joined on today’s show by his co-host Glenn Moore.
Lawler admits that he was somewhat legitimately upset with Peter Rosenberg for wearing an old Bobby Heenan jacket on the SummerSlam Kickoff show. He cracked a few jokes and everyone laughed but Lawler says he was somewhat legitimately angered because Heenan is one of the greatest commentators of all time, and he felt as if Rosenberg was comparing himself to Heenan by wearing that jacket. He hopes and assumes that Rosenberg wore the jacket as more of a tribute to Heenan.
Lawler thought SummerSlam provided a lot of great matches particularly the Kickoff show tag team match between The Usos and The New Day. He also mentions that the building was even more empty than it appeared on television for the 6-man tag which was the first match of the evening. He thought that was unfortunate, but that’s one of the difficult thing about Barclay’s Centre; it’s tough to funnel people into the building.
Lawler says he can’t fault fans for bringing beach balls and having a good time during the broadcast because for the last several months WWE has been promoting SummerSlam as the ‘biggest party of the Summer’. It actually wouldn’t surprise him if WWE brought those balls and set it up.
