Jerry Lawler Says Vince McMahon Returned To WWE Raw Because He Didn't Want To Miss The Wedding

Vince McMahon has been busy in recent months as he prepares for the re-launch of the XFL. As such, he hasn't been present for every episode of Raw and SmackDown.

It was reported by PWInsider on Monday that McMahon, Triple H, and Kevin Dunn were not at Raw in Hartford on Dec. 30. Later it was reported that McMahon arrived shortly before the show was set to go live on USA Network. And there was a big reason why Vince made it back for Raw.

"Vince had some really important meetings, he has been torn in so many different directions and has missed several Raws and SmackDowns. He left Hartford, CT, at two in the afternoon and everyone thought he was gone. We moved the talent relations office into Vince's office. At about 5:30, somebody comes in and says, 'Vince is on his way back, he doesn't want to miss the wedding.' We're in the back and we have to put his office back together. Vince came back just to make sure he was there for the wedding," revealed Jerry Lawler on the Jerry Lawler Show.

Rusev, who was the guest on Lawler's show, added, "I heard that too. I didn't know if it was a rumor or not but that speaks volumes. He's a big fan of weddings."

The wedding segment, which was highlighted by Liv Morgan being revealed as Lana's lover, was the highest-rated segment of the year according to Lana.
