The Gather IV event is scheduled for August 4 at the Charlotte University Hilton in North Carolina. It is a two-day event that will end on August 6.

Jerry Lawler signed back with WWE last year for some commentary work and appearances. At one point, he was about to feature in a managerial role, but creative plans fell through.
