WWE SummerSlam Axxess WWE'13 Roster Reveal

Jerry LawlerLillian Garcia welcomes us to the roster reveal live at WWE SummerSlam Axxess. Out comes WWE Hall of Famer Jerry "the King" Lawler who mentions Michael Cole to a chorus of unhappy fans. Apparently it's really hot out there. Lawler goes through all the typical WWE.com and Twitter plugs, before bringing out his partner in crime, fellow Hall of Famer Jim Ross. Ross gets a good laugh asking "Where's the hard camera?" and saying "I forgot how to do this!"

The two put over the Attitude Era and say they both "cut loose" in WWE'13; Lawler says the old "puppies!" line. Ross is ribbing Lawler pretty hard, but the show is just getting started as we're introduced to WWE Champion CM Punk! Lillian Garcia asks Punk how he's preparing for his big match at SummerSlam. The Champ responds saying that he can't really prepare, as it's a three way and he has to worry about too many things, like Big Show's giant fist.
