Former WWE Champion John Layfield just announced on his official Facebook page that he has signed a brand new full-time contract with the WWE.
"Very happy WWE and I have worked out a deal for me to return on a full time basis. There came a need when my friend Jerry Lawler had a heart attack and was not able to work, however, I realized how much I enjoyed being back and this was the basis for my decision to return."
According to JBL, he and Josh Matthews will make up the Smackdown announce booth on a weekly basis from this point forward. JBL will also join Michael Cole and Jerry "the King" Lawler on commentary for all pay-per-view events for the foreseeable future.
At this time, the weekly status of Hall of Famer Jim Ross is unknown. You can view the full Facebook post from JBL here.
