WWE: Alexa Bliss Cosmetic Surgery, Mark Henry “Un-Retires,” Jerry Lawler
Alexa Bliss underwent “breast augmentation surgery” recently, according to Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio. Meltzer speculated that that’s the reason why she has not really wrestled since WrestleMania. She was part of the 10-woman tag match on Raw on Monday, but didn’t take any bumps. She also didn’t travel to WWE’s tour of South Africa last week.

Mark Henry will wrestle in the 50-man Royal Rumble match in Saudi Arabia on Friday despite being “retired.” He spoke to a group of kids at the “Help Center” in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia and said that he’s only coming out of retirement “this one time” for them.
“I’ve been retired now for 10 months and I’m only coming out of retirement this one time for you.”
Jerry Lawler on Saudi Arabia
Jerry Lawler talked about Saudi Arabia, among other things on his latest podcast, Dinner With the King.
Jim Cornette was a guest and suggested that since no women wrestlers will be allowed on the show, WWE should pay them just to stay at home since WWE is making so much money from this event. Lawler said, “I think that’s exactly what’s happening.”
Lawler will be part of the Kickoff Show panel.
On the most recent episode of ‘Dinner With The King,’ Jerry “The King” Lawler, with his co-host Glenn Moore, talk about The King’s upcoming trip to Saudi Arabia. This episode features special guest, Jim Cornette.
The King reveals, after reading a list WWE sent out about the trip to Saudi Arabia, that he is worried he won’t be able to use his ‘King’ wrestling title during the PPV.
“If I walk out there and pretend to be a King, is that going to be offensive to the royal family?” says Lawler.
The King and Cornette talk about the ticket prices for the Greatest Royal Rumble and some of the controversy surrounding the event.
This episode includes Cornette reacting to The King’s match with Joey Ryan, which featured Lawler shooting a fireball at Ryan’s crotch.
Cornette and King were talking about the controversy surrounding the event and how women cannot wrestle at the Greatest Royal Rumble. Cornette says WWE is making millions and millions off the event – more money than people think – so why not give the women a hefty payday while they stay at home? King responds, “I think that’s exactly what’s happening.”
