Sources have confirmed that Lawler has since been suspended indefinitely from his position at the announce table, and fellow superstars have expressed their disappointment at The King's actions.
Speaking to Scott Hall on the phone from his home in Chicago, he expressed his shock in between slurring his words and rambling nonsensically. 'He's a disgrace! Everyone knows you have to blame the woman. She was asking for it. She was smack talking y- GIVE ME MORE WHISKEY BITCH. I CAN'T DO IT MYSELF I'M ON THE PHONE. I'M GOING TO BEAT YOUR ASS BLACK AND BLUE WHEN I'M FINISHED - anyway, what? Yeah. King. If you ask me he's an embarassment.'
Rumours of King 'pulling a Benoit' have since been squashed by WWE spokespersons.
'All he's done is hit her. Who here can honestly say they've never been tempted to lamp a woman? I'm surprised that was all he did, honestly. It didn't make the headlines, but I remember Bubba Ray Dudley once REALLY went to town on a woman he was seeing.'
