• FOX Wants WWE Hall Of Famer
Earlier this year, WWE Hall of Famer Triple H revealed that a weekly WWE studio show will air on Fox Sports 1 on Tuesday nights (when SmackDown moves to FOX in October).
According to WrestleVotes, FOX officials want WWE Hall of Famer Jerry “The King” Lawler to be a main part of this show:
“FOX has floated the idea to WWE about having Jerry “The King” Lawler as a main part of their WWE studio show that will begin once SmackDown moves over in October. The feeling is that Lawler’s image & voice is a familiar one, thus something Fox Sports is looking for.”
