Leave a comment

Lawler is joined on this week’s show by his co-host, Glenn Moore.

Lawler begins this week’s show by speaking about his match against James Ellsworth last weekend. He points out that Ellsworth was the hometown hero in this match, and he blames his loss on the referee who was clearly related to, or good friends with Ellsworth.

He points out that he had Ellsworth beat on one occasion but the referee failed to count to three, claiming that Lawler’s foot was touching the bottom rope during the pin. Eventually Lawler found himself laying on his back and Ellsworth covered him. Ellsworth put his two feet on the middle rope for leverage right in front of the referee and the referree still counted to three, giving Ellsworth the victory.

Lawler welcomes Jeff Jarrett to the show.

Jarrett informs that his Hall of Fame induction has been kept under wraps for a while, and he and WWE were both pleasantly surprised that the news didn’t leak before the official announcement. He admits that he didn’t even tell his father about the news; he only told his wife, and eventually his teenage kids squeezed the news out of them as well.
