Jerry Lawler takes to YouTube to shed light on his Raw walkout
On Raw SuperShow last Monday, WWE witnessed an unprecedented walkout by Superstars, Divas, referees, cameramen and announcers. What started as public a vote of confidence or no confidence in WWE COO, Triple H ended up being a mass exodus which may result in an empty ring this Monday.
What made this egress even more shocking is the fact that it may have been accidentally triggered by one of WWE’s longest tenured Legends, Jerry “The King” Lawler. The King debuted in WWE in December of 1992, almost 20 years ago as an in ring competitor and has been a WWE announcer for more than 10 years.
Despite The King’s career showing no signs of coming to end earlier this year when he finally had his first WrestleMania match, the WWE Universe may have seen the last of Lawler this past Monday night.
The King had not been on Raw for two weeks after being driven through the announcers’ table by Mark Henry’s World’s Strongest Slam. (WATCH) Lawler’s presence on Raw this past Monday was unexpected and his words may have been even more unexpected by WWE COO, Triple H.
“I’m not speaking for anybody except myself right now. I think this show is spiraling out of control. While Raw has always been a volatile place, it has become a hazardous work environment. I don’t think it’s your fault. I think it’s somebody behind the scenes, pulling the strings, trying to sabotage your job as COO. The problem is that everybody around this ring right now, including myself, are paying the price for it. Somebody doesn’t want you running this company and as long as you are running this company I’m afraid things are only going to get worse. Like it or not, you’re the reason all of this is happening."
Lawler’s words were followed by a unanimous vote of no confidence by the WWE Superstars, Divas and referees. The King subsequently expressed his own vote of no confidence and his actions following that vote which created the domino effect that may have changed the longest running episodic television show in history forever.
“I’m voting no confidence, too. I’ve always heard that actions speak louder than words. I don’t know what anyone else is doing but right now, I’m reluctantly walking out.”
King’s exit was followed by that of every Superstar, Diva, referee, cameraman and announcer around the ring, leaving Triple H as an island unto himself.
