Stick around for a bit. There are certain names in WWE history who have reached legend status. No matter what they do or how long they might be away, they could walk back onto television at any point and be greeted warmly. That is not something you get to see very often but it can make for some special moments. Now we might be seeing some more of those special moments in the future, as a legend is sticking with the company.

According to, WWE Hall of Famer Jerry Lawler has signed a new deal with the company. His previous deal was scheduled to run out by the end of this year, though it is not clear how long his new deal will last. Lawler made a cameo appearance this week on Monday Night Raw, appearing in a backstage segment with Nikki Ash and Rhea Ripley. There is no word on when Lawler will next appear.

Lawler has been around WWE for a good while. Check out some of his time with the company:

Opinion: This is one of those things that isn’t likely to hurt anything and keeps Lawler around, which could come in some small handy later. Lawler is one of those beloved names from a previous era who can bring in a bit of extra attention. I can’t imagine he’s going to cost that much and he could help things out a little here or there. It’s nice for nostalgia if nothing else and that can be a good thing.

What do you think of Lawler? How can he help WWE? Let us know in the comments below.
