PLAYERS: Jerry Lawler
Jim Ross has blogged about Jim Ross’ return to RAW. Here are the highlights… “Seeing Jerry and getting to introduce him back to Raw was a big, personal thrill for me. It was approximately two months ago that I never thought I would see him alive again. Our hug was real. That was a ‘moment’ in case you might be wondering what a real ‘moment’ in our business truly is. Was the post, Lawler verbal presentation my favorite aspect of Raw? No. The King’s return was the highlight of the show for me personally. But just like any other entertainment entity all content is subjective. Some folks will like some things more than others and there are some who will downright despise specific aspects of a broadcast.”
