Go with the familiar one. In less than four months, WWE is getting one of its biggest deals in history as SmackDown Live moves over to FOX. This opens the show up to the largest audience it has ever had and brings with it several new opportunities. One such opportunity is a weekly studio show on FOX Sports 1, and FOX already has an idea of who they want for the show.

According to WrestleVotes, FOX wants Jerry Lawler to be one of the faces of the show. The idea behind the move is that Lawler is a familiar face and voice to the WWE audience, which is what FOX wants for the show. At the moment there is no word on who will be the primary host, though Renee Young has been mentioned. The show will likely be starting up in early October when SmackDown Live moves to FOX.

Lawler has been around for a long time. Check out a look at his life story:


Opinion: This makes perfect sense and I can’t imagine Lawler would turn down an offer like this. Lawler is indeed someone who has been around for a very long time and fans would indeed recognize his voice. It helps that Lawler is one of the better talkers in wrestling and can go on about whatever topic you give to him without missing a beat. Lawler would be a good option and he has worked with Young before.

Do you like the idea of Lawler in the role? Will you watch the studio show? Let us know in the comments below.
