The legendary commentator felt that WWE missed an opportunity to elevate a younger performer by having him come out to try to save the heavily respected Undertaker.

Jerry Lawler DVD

When WWE creates a DVD for a performer, they generally allow them some creative input. With Jerry Lawler, he is receiving a whole lot of input. The longtime commentator is being allowed to pick and choose which matches that he wants on the feature. Management is even paying him for the rights to use the footage, since Lawler owns most of the content from the Memphis territory. This is definitely a special case scenario.
