Recently, “The King” Jerry Lawler revealed on his “Dinner With The King” podcast the WWE might never allow him to wrestle again.
Currently, Lawler makes sporadic appearances for the company. It has been learnt he’ll be join the commentary table for one match at WrestleMania 33.
“I still love to climb in the ring as often as possible because, simply, that’s why I got into this business. I never started in this business thinking about being a commentator or doing announcing in wrestling matches, I got into this business to wrestle,” he said.
He also revealed he had wrestled in 134 matches since his heart attack in 2012.
Jerry Lawler is a record 52-time AWA/Memphis Wrestling World Heavyweight champion.
Since 2001, he has been doing commentary for the WWE. After 2014, he appeared on part-time basis. He made his WrestleMania debut in 2011 against Michael Cole. It was a really poor booking from the company as a legend like Lawler made his WrestleMania debut against Cole and could not even manage a victory.
WWE’s concern over Jerry Lawler is legit. One can’t blame the WWE for not letting Lawler wrestle for everything that has happened with wrestlers like Daniel Bryan and Edge previously.
