The writing was on the wall when Lita was not present for the pre-show panel on Sunday or Monday. We already knew on Tuesday that Jerry “The King” Lawler was being moved to a Legends deal that would see him make occasional appearances on the WWE Network.
Jim Ross, who has recently spoken with Lita, confirmed that she is gone from WWE. The decision to take Lawler off weekly WWE programming likely had to do with wanting to get younger faces on the shows but there’s no word on why WWE chose to part ways with Lita.
Booker T and Charly Caruso hosted the Raw pre-show. Renee Young and Booker T will be joined by a special guest prior to the pay-per-view panels.
