WWE Hall of Famer Jerry Lawler appeared on Cerrito Live this weekend and said there may be split announce teams at WrestleMania 32, apparently so he and “MR” Mauro Ranallo can get a spot on the show. Lawler said it’s not a done deal but he’s heard “scuttlebutt” about that happening. Lawler mentioned how fans are requesting that he and Mauro to work the show.
Lawler, who had trouble remembering Byron Saxton’s name, also talked about his heel turn on commentary and said it was his idea. Lawler knew Mauro wouldn’t say anything bad about anyone because he was the new guy and Byron is too nice of a guy, so Lawler suggested to Vince that he go back to his heel persona.
Lawler also said he’s just scratching the surface and trying to ease into the turn. Lawler said Vince loved the idea and told him that he misses the way “The King” used to be.
