Out next Jerry “The King” Lawler to host The King’s Court with special guest Veer Mahaan.

Lawler begins by asking Mahaan what is the secret to his success so far in the WWE? Mahaan just stares down Lawler. Lawler then questions why he targeted the Mysterios? Mahaan still didn’t answer. Lawler then began saying Rey told him Veer is so hairy that when he walks his dog people pet him. Lawler then said Dominik once said people have mistaken him for Bigfoot.

Mahaan then grabs the microphone and the King’s wrist and says, “Look Jerry, I am not here to joke around, Rey Mysterio is a legend, but he is too busy worried about his little boy Dominik and that made him weak, and I took both of them out.”

Mahaan then looks at Lawler and sort of smells him then flips his hand and the microphone goes flying and Veer holds up his finger and picks the microphone up and hands it back to Lawler. Mahaan says, “Is that fear I smell on you Jerry?” and Lawler says, “I think it’s just my cheap cologne.”

Mahaan says, “Enough with the jokes and instead of me telling you who I am why don’t I show you?” Lawler stands his ground and the Mysterios music hit and come out for the save and Mahaan met them and shoves Dominik down and throws Rey into the ring. Dominik gets thrown in the ring as well. But the Mysterios kept Mahaan from getting back in the ring.
