Jerry Lawler re-signs with WWE, says he's calling Rumble match


On the latest episode of his podcast, Jerry Lawler revealed that he's re-signed with WWE.

Lawler noted on Monday's episode of "Dinner with the King" that he's signed a two-year contract with WWE. Lawler said his deal with WWE comes up on January 10 every year, and he texted Kevin Dunn a reminder about it on January 8. Lawler said he was offered a two-year deal with a raise the next day.

Lawler also said he's going to be on commentary for this year's men's Royal Rumble match. Lawler said it sounds like it will be him, Michael Cole, and JBL calling the match. Chase Field in Phoenix, Arizona is hosting the pay-per-view on January 27.

With this Monday's Raw taking place at the FedExForum in Memphis, Tennessee, Lawler made a brief appearance on the episode. He was shown coming out of Vince McMahon's office during a backstage segment where wrestlers were waiting outside the door to meet with McMahon about wanting to challenge for Brock Lesnar's Universal Championship at the Royal Rumble. The segment ended with Lawler looking bewildered as No Way Jose's conga line went by him.
