Re: Jerry "The King" Lawler Discussion
If RAW has a cancer, then it's the life-sapping duo of Michael Cole and Jerry Lawler being the announcers. Get them the fuck off this show. This is coming from one of the biggest Jerry Lawler marks there was from about 14 years ago.
Lawler is so dreadful to listen to... he phones in his commentary with this horrible false-enthusiasm in his voice that clearly demonstrates he does not care about anything that is taking place and is merely reading his lines. Why Vince McMahon feels so indebted to him and insists on keeping him as one of the lead announcers for the WWE is anyone's guess. I was saddened to see him suffer the heart attack and fortunately, he recovered from it. Unfortunately, it means he's going to be riding that sympathy heat for at least another ten years, clogging up the broadcast booth worse than his arteries were. What kills me is that they have Jim Ross on their payroll and refuse to use him because "he's too old" and "he's too Southern." Meanwhile, Lawler's older than J.R. and is from fucking MEMPHIS! Jesus Christ! Fuck this company!
