Dinner With the King Recap w/ Jim Ross – Reuniting for RAW’s 25th Anniversary, Vince McMahon Underrated as A Performer, Which Lawler Character Will We See at RAW25? More!
Ross says the only three-man booth he’s ever enjoyed being a part of was when he, Lawler and Vince McMahon worked together on early episodes of RAW. He found it easy to commentate during those shows because McMahon, the owner, was sitting right there next to him and he could ask him questions during commercial breaks.
Ross doesn’t think that McMahon gets the credit he deserves for how well he portrayed the heel character that rose to notoriety during the attitude era. McMahon had very little in-ring experience as a character, and he was immediately thrown into the top storyline with Steve Austin and he didn’t miss a beat.
Moore asks Lawler if he’s going to be “old-school King Lawler” during this upcoming Monday’s RAW. Lawler confirms that he’s not going to be “lovey dovey” at all. He’s going to be the Jerry Lawler character that fans remember from RAW 25 years ago.
That sums up this week’s episode of Dinner With the King. You can listen to the show yourself anytime here, and I’ll catch ya next week for another recap!
