X-Pac opens today’s show by speaking about the new Mayor of Knox County, Kane. He points out that he knew Kane was going be to victorious in this Mayoral race from the time he announced his intentions to run. He loves Glenn Jacobs, and notes that they had a lot of fun together when they tagged for a period of time during the attitude era.
Jerry “The King” Lawler returned to the ring this past week, paying tribute to his late son, Brian Christopher Lawler in a match against James Ellsworth. Lawler later went on record saying that wrestling was therapeutic for him at this difficult time. X-Pac says he spoke to Lawler the morning of Brian’s funeral and Lawler was quite upset. He adds that Lawler did what he thought was best for his son, and he thinks people should leave Lawler alone right now.
Cody Rhodes, The Young Bucks, and the rest of the ALL IN crew announced this past week that there’ll be an “Over Budget Battle Royale” at ALL IN on September 1st. X-Pac thinks this is a great idea, noting that a battle royale makes sense when you have a lot of talent and need to find a way to fit them all onto a card with limited time to do so.
