Jerry Lawler

Jerry Lawler was given a hero’s welcome as he appeared in front of his hometown crowd on RAW in Memphis.

Lawler hadn’t been seen in public for several months as he suffered a stroke on February 7th. At first, many reports feared the worst, but Lawler looks to have made a full recovery and doesn’t appear to be suffering any obvious side-effects from that stroke.

During a commercial break on Monday’s WWE RAW, Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn cut a promo to talk to the audience. Both of them began by saying that they were in a bad mood due to all the problems that The Judgment Day were causing them.

But then, Zayn noted that his mood improved significantly when he saw “a certain someone” backstage. Then Owens took over and announced Lawler to the crowd, who gave him a standing ovation and an extended “Jerry” chant.

Lawler came out to his usual entrance theme and came out wearing a black shirt and baseball cap. The only thing noticeable thing about his appearance was that he had a grey and white beard.

Jerry Lawler is no stranger to health scares

Unfortunately, this isn’t the first time Jerry Lawler had a health scare. His more serious and more infamous scare occurred on September 10, 2012 when he suffered a heart attack on air during a live broadcast of RAW.

Coincidentally, Jerry Lawler took part in the late Terry Funk’s last recorded professional wrestling match. Said match took place on September 23, 2017 in Spartanburg, South Carolina for independent promotion Big Time Wrestling.

That match saw Funk and the Rock ‘n’ Roll Express duo of Ricky Morton and Robert Gibson defeat the team of Dog Gilbert, Jerry Lawler, and Brian Christopher.
