QUICK QUOTES: Jerry Lawler talks being disappointed in the women’s Money in the Bank finish, which current star would’ve been huge in Memphis

On the latest episode of Dinner With The King, Jerry Lawler talked about why he was disappointed in the women’s Money in the Bank match and more. Here are the highlights:

On the women’s Money in the Bank ladder match (32:20 mark of show):

“That’s one thing that disturbed me, and hopefully they will fix that in some kind of way. That’s what WWE has been about. We don’t even call them Divas anymore; it’s the Women’s Division because it’s about empowering women. So much of the emphasis that the WWE has put on the Women’s Division has done that.

That’s why I was disappointed to see, in the first ever, historic Women’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match, that they had to have a man climb the ladder and retrieve the Money in the Bank briefcase. I’m one of them [people who are upset about the finish].”

On the Mid-South Coliseum (21:54 mark):

“I was on a flight one time with one of the Memphis officials, and he said, “Jerry, the city of Memphis would sell you the Mid-South Coliseum for one dollar.”

I said, “Really?” They said, “Yeah. But I just want to remind you that just sitting there, the cost of it being closed just sitting there the way it is costs the city $63,000”.

That’s not a house-note that I can take on right now. Even thought I would like to have the Coliseum. But I don’t want to be paying $63,000 a month for it.”

Which current WWE star would be huge in old-school Memphis (15:15 mark):

“A Bray Wyatt. I would have loved to have had the Bray Wyatt character down in Memphis. That would have fit right in what we did. And the whole Wyatt Family; any of those guys we could have made a ton of money with in our old-school Memphis days.”
