WWE Hall of Famer Jerry Lawler appeared on Cerrito Live, Sports56 in Memphis, TN to discuss being pulled from his regular WWE TV role, and during the appearance Lawler had the following to say on his current WWE status and future:

“[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.”
