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

Lawler opens today’s show by addressing certain headlines that were written after last week’s show. He says that some wrestling websites wrote stories about him getting Paige’s number while backstage at Smackdown recently, but he says that was taken completely out of context. He didn’t ask her for her number, rather they took a picture together and he simply asked her to text it to him.

Moore mentions that it’s been 20 years since King of the Ring 1998, and the famous Hell in A Cell match between Mick Foley and The Undertaker. Lawler mentions that when he watched the tape back of Foley’s iconic fall, it was as if he was almost in shock at the commentary table. Ross did the majority of the talking during and after Foley’s fall, and Lawler was only able to squeeze in an audible gasp or two. Lawler adds that he was even more shocked by Foley’s second fall, when Undertaker chokeslammed him through the top of the cage.

He mentions that Foley was able to control the dive from the top somewhat, but he had no control at all when the top of the cage broke and he went soaring down to the ring mat, landing on his neck. Lawler thought that Foley might have been dead after that fall. He notes that he and Ross were certainly concerned but they had to remain in character. There was no sense for them to take their headsets off, break character, and run to the ring to check on their friend because medical personnel were on the scene.
