When you look back at the commentary team from the attitude era you think of Good Ol’ JR and his partner Jerry “The King” Lawler. Without these two men you could argue the Attitude era wouldn’t have been the same.
Lawler made his debut in the WWE in 1992 but had already carved a name for himself for two decades before that in the southern territories. His professional wrestling debut took place in 1970 and won his first championship a year later and picking up the nickname “the King of Memphis wrestling along the way”
While we have already seen Jim Ross return to WWE television to work alongside Lita on commentary for the Mae Yong tournament, it looks like we will be seeing The King return to WWE TV also. It looks like the King will be making an appearance on Talking Smack following the battleground PPV. he posted the following to his Twitter account.

While Lawler himself did not state what role he would have to play on talking smack Renee young stated on Twitter that Lawler would be joining her as co-host and would not be replacing her as host.
We're both going to be hosting it. https://t.co/Xfrz19EpU6

This is the first appearance in the WWE in a few months for Lawler. Earlier this year at the Royal Rumble, he called the Rumble match itself with Michael Cole and Corey Graves.
In addition, this is the first episode of Talking Smack since the announcement that the WWE has cancelled the show on a weekly basis, but will still carry on after pay-per-views.
While the Kings last few years on commentary may not have been the best, whenever he does appear on WWE TV he always provides great insight, and I personally am looking forward to seeing him making an return and to hearing what he has to say. As well as listing to him grill the superstars after their matches.
as always let us know what you think in the comment section bellow, are you happy to see the King return to WWE TV?
