Lawler is joined on today’s show by his co-host Glenn Moore.
Lawler mentions that the current Meningitis outbreak in WWE is very unfortunate. He assumes that someone picked up a bug during one of the recent overseas tours and now it has spread through the locker room. He mentions that none of the commentators have come down with the illness as of yet which is great, but Lawler was still wondering if he’d get a call at the last minute to commentate on the TLC PPV or to work the kickoff show.
Speaking of Kurt Angle’s return to a WWE ring, Lawler thought Angle did a terrific job and commends him on jumping into that spot at the last minute in order to give the WWE Universe something special. Lawler recalls driving from an indie show with Angle roughly a year ago and Angle was expressing his desire to return to a WWE ring even then, so it was great to see him live out that dream Sunday night.
Lawler mentions that some people may have been critical of that main event and all the gimmicks and antics that it included, but he points out that WWE’s goal is always to send the fans home happy. After having to adjust the two big matches on the TLC card, WWE found a way to deliver and send their fans home happy.
