On the latest 'Dinner With The King' with WWE Hall of Famer Jerry "The King" Lawler and Glenn Moore, the duo go in-depth about King's departure from the WWE in 2001. They sent us these highlights:
"During that time, I did get a call from Jeff Jarrett just saying, 'Hey, we [TNA] were just wondering if you re-signed with the WWE or not?' It was one of those things that I got right back to him and said I did re-sign with them [WWE]."
Lawler noted that he thought TNA was looking to reunite Lawler and Jim Ross.
"Without a doubt, I'm sure that's what was in their minds and it was possibly in the mind of JR's as well," Lawler said.
Lawler also discussed Talking Smack being completely unscripted, being left off the commentary team of WWE2K18, and why TNA needs to get rid of their six-sided ring. You can listen to the episode below:
