Dinner With the King Recap – Special Guest The Godfather, King’s WWE Contract Status, Return to WWE Confirmed, More!
Lawler is joined on today’s show by his co-host, Glenn Moore.
Lawler informs that he worked an indie match this past weekend and by wrestling that match, he has now wrestled at least one match in 49 consecutive years. Moore points out that that’s an incredible feat, noting that Lawler has had a tremendous career.
Lawler notes that Monday Night Raw will be live from Memphis tonight, and you never know who might show up to that show. The last time WWE was in town Lawler received a call to appear on the show at 4:30 in the afternoon.
WWE officials called him one day last week and told him they might want to film something at his restaurant for tonight’s show, but he hasn’t heard anything about that since. He urges people to watch the show regardless and it’s implied that he’ll have a role on the show.
Lawler informs that he’s been under contract with WWE since 1995, and his contract ends each year on January 10th. On the 8th of this month he hadn’t heard from WWE and he started to get concerned. He contacted Kevin Dunn and Dunn replied with an apology, noting that Lawler’s contract must have slipped through the cracks.
