A name that Jeff Jarrett would love to have attached to GFW is none other than Jerry Lawler. The two of them have a very long history together. They worked with one another in the Memphis territory decades ago. Lawler would bring instant credibility to the promotion if he were one of the voices at the commenting table. Jarrett will more than likely contact Lawler, but it is highly unlikely that a contract will be offered at this point.

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.
