WWE pumps out a lot of content on a weekly basis, so there’s certainly no shortage of shows for wrestling fans to enjoy. However, keeping up with everything can be difficult at times, and Jerry “The King” Lawler recently talked about where he’s at with the WWE product right now during an appearance on Busted Open Radio.
“Sometimes it’s sort of hard for me to watch. I just got my schedule to be at Survivor Series, and so it’s almost like cramming for an exam back when you were at school. I really have to go back and watch some shows, and make some notes, and find out what is actually going on.”
Lawler went on to elaborate by saying that commentators today have a lot of details they need to pay attention to due to the talent changes, and he also noted that everything seems short now.
“I don’t see how the guys in the business — it’s so tough to be doing that on a daily basis. Doing the commentary for Raw and SmackDown now, to me, it’s almost brutal to have to know and remember. The talent changes so fast and everything is so short now.
“It’s not the fault of wrestling, people love to talk about how wrestling has changed. Wrestling has not changed. It’s the fans, it’s the society that’s changed. We’ve got a short attention span now. You have to, in the wrestling business, you have to realize there’s so much more stuff that fans can watch. So, you have to keep this here show so exciting every minute that people are watching or they’re going to switch over and start watching TikTok. It’s changed in that respect, and sometimes for me, it’s hard to follow.”
