JERRY LAWLER: WWE does not renew Jerry Lawler’s broadcast deal, remains on WWE Legends contract


Posted on 5/07/124 by Colin Vassallo



PWInsider.com is reporting that WWE has chosen not to renew
Jerry “The King” Lawler’s deal as a broadcaster and is now
solely under a WWE Legends deal.

Lawler used to do Kickoff shows for premium live events but
that stopped when he suffered a stroke in February 2023. He
last appeared for WWE in November of last year when he chose
the participants of the NXT Iron Survivor Challenge.

Lawler joined WWE in 1992 and has been affiliated with them
pretty much ever since, calling thousands of wrestling matches
along the way. His last stint as a commentator came between
September 2019 and April 2020 when he was part of a three-
person broadcast team on Ra with Vic Joseph and Dio Maddin.
Lawler was later replaced by Samoa Joe.
