Dinner With the King Recap – Recapping WrestleMania Weekend, Reason Behind HOF Stage Change, Last Minute Change to Universal Title Match, More!
He informs that everyone had to be at the Stadium at 10AM. They all met downstairs at the hotel at 8AM and there was a bomb sniffing dog there checking all their luggage. Once he got to the stadium he had to begin rehearsing for the Kickoff show.
The Kickoff show started at 5 PM and with all the matches on that show the guests barely got a chance to speak. After the Kickoff show ended he had to rush downstairs to get ready to call the first match of the night, Randy Orton versus A.J. Styles.
As he was in the backstage area changing his clothes someone came in and told him that things have changed and Brock Lesnar/Seth Rollins would be opening the show now, instead of going on second last right before the women’s main event. Apparently Lesnar had just been in a meeting with Vince McMahon and this decision was made. Lawler doesn’t know why this happened.
After Lawler finished calling the Orton/Styles match he left with his girlfriend, Hulk Hogan, and Hogan’s wife, and they all went for a nice dinner. He notes that Hogan has a lot of pull around WWE and organized a limo to pick them up.
