As we noted before the Paige reference during the rap battle on this week’s SmackDown Live was apparently unscripted as WWE removed it from the video they posted of the segment later on YouTube.
During the recent episode of Dinner With The King, former WWE Superstar Jerry Lawler spoke up about the segment and talked about how Mr McMahon may have felt about it:
“You say Vince [McMahon] would have not been pleased, but I’m sure that’s not what would have been something that they told him to say or been scripted. Once again, that was one of the things that Vince used to always say: It’s live TV; nothing can go wrong. Because of that, anything can happen on live TV.“
Talking about retweeting the tweet of US President Donald Trump in which he used edited WWE footage and took a shot at CNN, Lawler said that he didn’t receive as much negative reaction as he thought:
“Not as much negative reaction as I thought I was going to get. To me, it was pretty cool, no matter who the President is. It’s the President of the United States and they put out a tweet and you’re in it. I mean, c’mon! There’s not many people that can say that happened to them, so I just thought it was cool.”
