On the latest episode of Dinner With The King, Jerry Lawler revealed that TNA reached out to him when he started on a limited basis with WWE. Here are the highlights they sent along:
As for other companies trying to lure Lawler from the WWE, it has happened. Lawler states that TNA’s Jeff Jarrett contacted him when the news broke about Lawler’s limited-use in the WWE.
“During that time, I did get a call from Jeff Jarrett just saying, ‘Hey, we [TNA] were just wondering if you re-signed with the WWE or not?’ It was one of those things that I got right back to him and said I did re-sign with them [WWE].”
If their mindset was to bring King and J.R. together in TNA:
“Without a doubt, I’m sure that’s what was in their minds and it was possibly in the mind of JR’s as well.”
