Lawler is joined on today’s show by his co-host Glenn Moore.
Lawler mentions that he and Jim Ross will be traveling across the World with WWE to call the “Greatest Royal Rumble Ever”. Moore asks Lawler if he’ll be competing in the first ever 50-man Royal Rumble, but Lawler says he’d definitely be surprised to be asked to compete. Lawler mentions that this event will be broadcasted on the WWE Network, and he’s very excited about it.
He notes that anything is possible because Daniel Bryan was cleared for a return to the ring this past week when many people thought he’d never be able to get cleared again. Lawler points out that Bryan took a lot of physical abuse on RAW this week especially for his first night back in action, and he felt overly concerned about Bryan’s health while watching it.
Lawler thinks this is the reason that WWE feels hesitant about putting performers like him back into action. He assumes that WWE doesn’t want fans sitting on the edge of their seats feeling legitimate concerned about someone’s health when they’re supposed to be enjoying the action. Lawler is sure that WWE is concerned that if they cleared him for a return to the ring, he’d drop down dead in his first match back.
