PWInsider.com is reporting that Jerry “The King” Lawler will be given the day off on Hall of Fame night as his hosting gig has just been given to someone else.
For the first time ever, a Diva will be the MC for the evening, and the honor has been given to Eva Marie.
Only four other individuals have hosted the Hall of Fame ceremony since 2005. Jerry “The King” Lawler has done the show six times, Todd Grisham twice, Gene Okerlund once, and in 2008, Grisham and Okerlund hosted the show together.
The Total Divas star is certainly not the most popular Diva among fans mostly due to her inexperience in the ring despite being in the company for two years already. She was introduced during the first season of Total Divas and has remained one of the cast members ever since.
WWE fan and celebrity Maria Menounos will be returning to host the red carpet event which will kick off an hour before the ceremony at 7PM EST.
