What's the story?
WWE Hall of Famer Jerry "The King" Lawler has now taken to his official social media account, so as to announce that he'll be hosting a "King's Court" segment, featuring legendary former Women's Champion Trish Stratus.
Lawler noted that the aforementioned "King's Court" segment will take place on the upcoming episode of SmackDown Live. The announcement has seemingly served to fuel speculation regarding Stratus' in-ring comeback ahead of the WWE SummerSlam event.
In case you didn't know...
Trish Stratus is widely regarded as one of the greatest professional wrestlers of all time, and wrestled for the WWE from 2000 until her eventual departure from the company in 2006.
Since stepping away from the WWE as a full-time performer, Stratus has made sporadic appearances on WWE TV programming as well as special events ever since.
The heart of the matter
On that note, "The Queen" Charlotte Flair recently asserted that her SummerSlam opponent would be better than Ember Moon -- what with the fact that Moon will be facing reigning SmackDown Women's Champion Bayley, for the latter's title at SummerSlam next month.
This year's edition of SummerSlam is set to transpire on August 11th, at the Scotiabank Arena in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, which also happens to be Trish Stratus' hometown.
Moreover, the professional wrestling community has been rife with rumors, pertaining to the possibility of Stratus engaging in a feud with Flair, leading up to a match between them at SummerSlam.
In what comes as yet another indication as regards to a potential Stratus vs. Flair rivalry, Jerry "The King" Lawler has revealed via Twitter, that he'll be hosting a "King's Court" segment with Trish Stratus as his guest.
Moreover, the WWE has confirmed the upcoming segment in an article on the company's official website. Lawler's tweet reads as follows --
"This Tuesday night on WWE SmackDown Live from Memphis, I will be hosting a King's Court featuring my all time favorite female Superstar, Trish Stratus!"
The general consensus in the professional wrestling industry is that Trish Stratus making an appearance on the upcoming episode of SmackDown Live (July 30th, 2019) which will air from Jerry Lawler's hometown of Memphis, Tennessee; will probably witness the commencement of a feud between Stratus and Charlotte Flair.
