When news broke that Jerry Lawler was no longer going to be on a talent contract with WWE moving forward, it opened the door to something fans of professional wrestling never thought they would see ever again: the “King” calling matches alongside his long-time partner, Jim Ross, in a wrestling booth once more.

That's right, after Ross left WWE in 2013 to pursue calling show on the indies, in NJPW, and eventually in AEW, first on Dynamite and then as a special attraction on Pay-Per-Views, some fans never thought they would hear the duo on the mic again, especially considering Lawler became a special attraction in his own right, but suddenly, that could all seemingly change in an instant, with the world now the Memphis legend's oyster should he choose to shuck it.

Discussing Lawler's new free agency status in a special appearance on Busted Open Radio, Ross noted that not only could he see a world where the duo are reunited for one more show, but that may even happen in AEW, assuming everyone is down for a one-night-only affair in Memphis at some point down the line.

“I think so. A one-off. I don't think he wants to re-invest in a weekly schedule. I certainly don't. I'm only doing pay-per-views now for Tony Khan and I'm very comfortable and happy with that,” Jim Ross told Busted Open Radio via Fightful. “People say, ‘Well, you should, you're only working one day a month.' What about those other 50 years I put in? I've paid my dues and I'm happy with my schedule. I'm happy that Tony Khan is respectful enough to manage my schedule so I can live a little longer. I still get excited about it.”

Would it be cool to see Ross and Lawler call another match or even a whole show together in AEW? Potentially so, as while it's hard to imagine Lawler watches Tony Khan's company weekly at this stage of the game – according to Fightful, he doesn't watch wrestling much anymore, period – maybe the company could figure out a bout where his presence elevates the presentation, maybe for a match where he already knows the players involved, or at least one that is simple to follow without having all of the necessary background information like, say, a one-off TNT Championship match featuring someone like Adam Copeland. If his WWE Legends contract allows for calling a match in AEW, which, frankly, it probably doesn't, Lawler would be a welcomed one-off addition to AEW or any promotion, as he only has so many match calls left in him.

Jim Ross has lobbied for a reunion with Jerry Lawler before.

While Jim Ross is currently in the news for his attempt to lobby for a match call featuring himself and Jerry Lawler in AEW or elsewhere, this isn't the first time he's put it out there that he would love to work with the “King” again in the future, with JR using his Grillin' JR podcast to offer up his thoughts regarding his WWE exit before offering up that his door is always open for the future.

“I felt bad about this week's news about Lawler, my partner. I don't think that he and I have worked our last match together. I really don't believe that. I think somewhere down the road, we'll…if nothing else, it'll be at an appearance,” Jim Ross explained via Fightful.

“How much are you gonna saddle your old horse up, Jerry, and ride it work? You're right, he's gonna be fine. He's always lived within his means. I doubt if he's got any doubt, even on his real estate. Pulling for him in all aspects. I just think that JR and The King is marketable after all these years together. So we'll see how that works out. I'm not saying that he's gonna join the staff at AEW whatsoever. I don't have any idea about that, and nor do I want to know. It's not my place to hire talent. But I certainly feel in my bones that there'll be opportunities for he and I to work together, whether that be on a TV show, a one-off type thing, or certainly some appearances. We still have great chemistry.”

How much does Lawler want to put himself out there in the aftermath of his stroke? Does he feel comfortable enough in his abilities to call matches once more, or does he feel as though it's better to keep his legacy as is and enjoy his place as a legend in the business? If Lawler decides he still has a few more rides left on his proverbial horse before he rides off into the sunset, it's safe to say Ross will be happy to ride right there alongside him.
