Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer is reporting that WWE has ditched the services of WWE Hall of Famers Jerry “The King” Lawler and Lita for their Kickoff and pre-show panels.

Lawler and Lita joined Booker T and Renee Young on most panels but they were absent from the TLC pay-per-view. Meltzer adds that the two are now on a Legends deal and are no longer employed full time by WWE. Lita had a backstage role before moving on camera while Lawler was removed from the Smackdown commentary team to join the pre-show panel.

Jerry Lawler had been a staple for WWE commentary for over two decades before he was given the booth while Lita returned full-time after she served as a coach on Tough Enough.
