Clay In New Ad with Snoop, Rey Mysterio Replaced, Lawler
- Sources close to Jerry Lawler note that he will indeed be at the WWE SmackDown tapings from Memphis, Tennessee on Tuesday night. Lawler will likely just be backstage visiting and may just appear off-camera for the live crowd. As of this writing, WWE and the FedEx Forum is not advertising Lawler to appear.
– Rey Mysterio is not working this weekend’s WWE Supershows. He missed Tuesday’s SmackDown tapings and the Team Mysterio Twitter noted that he was suffering from a stomach flu. We noted yesterday that there was concern over him at RAW when he returned backstage limping. At last night’s Supershow in Jonesboro, Arkansas, Rey was replaced by Brodus Clay. Clay teamed with Sin Cara to defeat Damien Sandow and Cody Rhodes.
– Speaking of Clay, he is featured in a new Hot Pockets ad with his former employer Snoop Dogg. At last night’s Supershow, WWE began airing a cut-down version of the ad seen below:
