Backstage Update On Jerry Lawler Moving To SmackDown, Lawler Comments
While some claim the move of Jerry Lawler from the RAW announce team to the SmackDown announce team is one done by design to begin the process of slowly phasing “The King” off of his television role, other sources have a different take.
According to one report, one of the reasons Lawler was moved was to help boost the profile of SmackDown, with the idea that Lawler moving from RAW to SmackDown helps boost the credibility of the show, giving it its’ own “A-level announce team.”
Speaking of the move, Lawler tweeted out the following about his first week on the job.
