The 2016 WWE Royal Rumble will undoubtedly have a different feel to it as it WILL NOT include the voice of Jerry “The King” Lawler. Lawler confirmed on Twitter over the weekend he’ll be on the Kickoff and Rumble panel but will not be on the pay-per-view itself.
No...I'll be doing the pre show and Royal Rumble panel. https://t.co/bKVfP7KGXq

King retweeted followers that voiced their displeasure about this, so it certainly doesn’t look like his decision.
The commentary team for the pay-per-view will be comprised of Michael Cole, JBL and Byron Saxton. We’ll have complete coverage here at WrestlingNewsWorld.com.
