The King is back! Yes, Jerry Lawler will be hosting a special King’s Court segment this Tuesday on SmackDown Live and his guest will be none other than former WWE Women’s Champion Trish Stratus.
The man famous for yelling “puppies!” and often at Trish Stratus, Lawler will be back on WWE tv this Tuesday on SmackDown Live when he hosts a special segment with the returning Diva, likely setting up her rumored match for SummerSlam with Charlotte Flair.
Lawler announced on Twitter he’d be coming to SmackDown this Tuesday as the show emanates from Memphis, Tennesse, which will mark the first time Lawler has been on one of WWE’s flagship shows in months.
Lawler wrote, “This Tuesday night on WWE SmackDown Live from Memphis, I will be hosting a King’s Court featuring my all-time favorite female Superstar, Trish Stratus!”
A Charlotte versus Stratus match was first discussed by the rumor mill last week when Flair demanded a match at SummerSlam. She said she wanted real competition and it became evident she’d be wrestling a match against someone WWE hadn’t seen in a while. Whispers were Stratus would be the opponent and her being on SmackDown live this Tuesday seems to confirm that suspicion.
SummerSlam Is Starting To Shape Itself Out
SummerSlam is one of WWE’s hottest shows of the year, definitely the biggest of the summer and it’s going to get hotter with Stratus involved. No doubt, Lawler will make a few references to his past with Trish and perhaps a puppies reference or two.
