Talking Smack as we know it is dead, and it doesn't appear the post-Battleground edition will continue in its format, either.
WWE Hall of Famer Jerry "The" King Lawler confirmed on Twitter that he'll be on the WWE Battleground pre-show panel, tossing out one liners. Also, he'll be joining Renee Young on the post-Battleground edition of Talking Smack.
Talking Smack was canceled last week when Vince McMahon "discovered" the show, and decided it wasn't in line with what WWE programming should be due to the unscripted nature of the program. For now, it will continue on post-PPV.
The show rose to prominence with WWE Smackdown General Manager Daniel Bryan co-hosting the show. No word on his status for Sunday.
