Lawler was removed from his regular commentary role back in July after being taken off TV for about two weeks due to domestic violence charges. These charges were later dropped and Lawler returned to TV, only to be taken off again a few weeks later. Lita has been on the shows since earlier this year and has also been working on the creative team.
This isn’t the biggest change in the world and doesn’t make a huge difference. The pre-shows don’t mean much other than as a way to bring in some of the fans who haven’t been paying the closest attention and almost any hosts can do that. It doesn’t make sense to bring in two people when you can use Booker and Caruso, the latter of whom is already at the arena.
Will you miss either of the two departing hosts? Do you watch the WWE pre-shows? Let us know in the comments below.
