Lawler spoke of his experience on WWE Raw this week, opening up about his displeasure about doing commentary.
Vince McMahon’s Return on Monday Night RAW
Lawler: “If you really do screw up, say something wrong, or whatever, there is somebody that’s going to - boom - come right in your ear and say, you know, ‘Woah, don’t say that, say it like this…’ Or, ‘Do something like that.’ So, all I know is that, basically, the first time I heard from Vince [McMahon] all night long was – bang - all of sudden right at the end of the show, I could hear the mic cut in and all of a sudden, there was Vince and he said, ‘You guys had an awesome show tonight. Everyone was awesome. Thank you very much.’”
Jerry Doesn’t Like Being A Commentator:
Lawler: “They have a hard time believing it, but I don’t really - I’m not crazy about being a commentator. It’s not – at least to me – it’s not fun. It’s a lot of pressure. It’s a lot of preparation.”
Reedy: “Is it a different pressure from being a main event wrestler?”
Lawler: “Oh, yes! Absolutely. The difference in that is, I feel so confident when I’m in the ring as a wrestler that I - I don’t know if that comes from doing it for so long - almost 49 years - or what. I just feel self-confident about knowing what to do, when to do it, and I never go into a match thinking, ‘Oh my God, I’m going to screw this up.’”
