8. Jerry Lawler Reveals Why He Was Taken Off WWE Programming

During a recent appearance on Cerrito Live, Sports56 in Memphis, TN, WWE Hall of Famer Jerry “The King” Lawler revealed why he was taken off WWE programming.

Below is what he said:

“Kevin Dunn said that due to WWE being a public traded company, it comes down to dollars and cents. That having his salary being absorbed on the pre-show after he was taken off of SmackDown made it a very expensive to produce, so they decided to get rid of the pre-game show.

Vince McMahon called the next day and said I’m definitely not done with WWE and reiterated that the pre-show was dropped due to cost reasons. I’m under contract to WWE into January…they will talk about a new deal then.”
