What’s the story?
Jerry Lawler has taken to social media so as to reveal his role at the Royal Rumble PPV.
Lawler confirmed that he will indeed be calling the Men’s Royal Rumble Match.
In case you didn’t know…
Jerry ‘The King’ Lawler has been one of the WWE’s top color commentators over the years.
While Lawler used to primarily serve as part of the announce team on RAW on a full-time basis, he was replaced by other commentators—with the current RAW broadcast team comprising Michael Cole, Corey Graves & Booker T.
The heart of the matter
Jerry Lawler has been responsible for some of the most memorable commentary sound-bites in WWE history, including his infamous references to “puppies”.
Lawler has now sent out a Tweet by way of his official social media account so as to confirm that he will indeed serve as a color commentator for the Men’s Royal Rumble Match which takes place tonight. Fans can read The King’s Tweet below—
The 30-Man Royal Rumble Match takes place at the Royal Rumble PPV which airs from the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania tonight (January 28th).
The professional wrestling community is said to be incredibly hyped for the event, as confirmed by trending social media interactions pertaining to the WWE Royal Rumble; and fans can expect a more than a few surprise entrants in both the Men’s and Women’s Royal Rumble matchups respectively.
Jerry ‘The King’ Lawler is perhaps one of the most beloved WWE commentators of all time—right up there with Jim Ross.
Nevertheless, considering that Lawler was warned by management to tone down his commentary at RAW 25, perhaps we could expect a more sombre version of The King tonight.
