• Jerry Lawler On Triple H Making Changes To Raw 25 On The Fly Because Of Angry Fans
During a recent edition of Dinner With The King podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Jerry “The King” Lawler had the following to say regarding Triple H making changing to the Manhattan Center part of Raw 25 due to angry fans:
“I think at first, some fans realized ‘We’re not going to get to see in person a lot of these people that had been advertised,’ when someone is at the Barclays Center and they started showing all these different guys. They started to complain and feel uncomfortable and everything.
I’m not sure, but I think Triple H is the guy who made a call over there and said ‘Hey, we’ve got to give these people more over here.’ So what they started doing, they started sending some of the superstars that were primarily, originally just booked to be at the Barclays Center, they started sending them, putting them in a car service or limos and sending them over to the Manhattan Center.
So by the end of the night, the people at the Manhattan Center got to see a ton of the Superstars.”
