JBL Comments On Replacing Jerry Lawler, Attitude Era Footage Pulled, More On Dr. Shelby
- We noted last week that WWE was pulling some "dated and edgier" footage from their digital media platforms, claiming that the footage was being used out of context for political reasons. The company has since pulled Attitude-era footage from their YouTube account.

I'll be keeping ur seat warm Jerry! Get well soon, love u King!... Big question to @jerrylawler how did u put up with @michaelcole ?"
