10. Jerry Lawler On The Possible Reason Behind Cancellation Of Weekly Talking Smack, On Having No Idea About The Great Khali’s Return

During a recent edition of “Dinner With The King” podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Jerry “The King” Lawler talked the weekly Talking Smack being cancelled, The Great Khali’s return and more. Below are the highlights:

On rumors of weekly Talking Smack being cancelled after The New Day made an appearance on the show before their official SmackDown Live debut and Vince McMahon not liking it:

“As far as anything, like Vince’s decisions, who really knows other than Vince? I would highly doubt — just me personally and knowing Vince and knowing the situation — that the story you just said has any accuracy to it whatsoever. I’m sure the guests on Talking Smack, all of that is probably run by Vince before the show goes on. Because I know the fact that I was going to be on Talking Smack was run by Vince before I was allowed to be on there. It might have been logistics. When you’re talking these guys have been there all day long, and the crew has been there two days. And to ask them to stay an extra hour or two when everything else is being broke down and when all the other superstars have left getting back to their hotel or going on to the next city; it’s tough. It is hard. I’m sure there were some complaints from people not too happy about staying to do that. As opposed to the one after the pay-per-view; that’s easy.”

On having no idea about The Great Khali’s return:

“It’s so funny how things like that happen. People in the company, like myself and Renee Young and people doing the show, we had no idea that The Great Khali was in the arena.”
