During an interview this week, Jim Ross gave fans a little bit of a nugget. He revealed that there is a good amount of resentment towards him from the current group of broadcasters in WWE. Majority of that is not his fault, as guys like Michael Cole, Jerry Lawler, JBL and Booker T have grown tired of hearing fans complaining about their work on social media and demanding that Ross be brought back into the company and give his old job back.

Apparently, Paige wants to get some ink on her body. She revealed that during the latest episode of Total Divas. When she informed Jerry Lawler of her desires, he gave his disapproval. The former WWE Divas Champion is trying to get approval from management to get a big tattoo on her arm or chest, but it is highly unlikely that she will be allowed to do that. Aside from licensing issues, Vince McMahon is said to not be a fan of tattoos.

When the company decided to move him from the Monday Night Raw commentating table to Smackdown's lesser watched crew, it became clear to observant people that Jerry Lawler was being demoted by WWE. His job security, though, remains fairly high. He still has name value and a good amount of fans. Plus, management is afraid that another wresting promotion will sign Lawler and team him up with Jim Ross.

On a previous episode of Monday Night Raw, Jerry Lawler informed the WWE Universe that Christian is now retired as an in ring performer. That disappointed quite a few people, who were hoping that he would still be able to entertain us in the ring. However, the former world heavyweight champion has reportedly been telling fans that he is not retired and that Lawler was incorrect. Not sure if he was just working the audience or not, though.

As many of you already know by now, Jerry Lawler has been laid up in a hospital for the past week because of diverticulitis, the same condition that caused Brock Lesnar to retire prematurely from UFC. While he is getting better, it is not enough to get him back to work on Monday Night Raw this week, so WWE has decided to replace him with a fan favorite at the commentating table tonight. Booker T will join JBL and Michael Cole instead.
