- Lawler mentioned that WWE is in talks about doing split announce teams at WrestleMania 32. He and Mauro Ranallo would represent SmackDown while Michael Cole and JBL would represent RAW.
“It’s not a done deal or anything like that,” Lawler said.
- Lawler explained that it was his idea to go back to the heel commentator role on SmackDown. He pitched the idea to Vince McMahon, who liked the idea. Lawler recalled McMahon saying he missed the old “king” gimmick and how he used to be.
“I’m just trying to ease into it gradually,” Lawler said, “and have just scratched the surface.”
