Jim Ross posted a photo with his longtime WWE commentary partner, Jerry “The King” Lawler.
There are many fans of pro wrestling who will name Jim Ross and Jerry Lawler as the best commentary team in the history of the business. They were the main voices of WWE from the mid-1990s through the 2000s decade before WWE decided to make changes to the commentary team.
During the much-celebrated Attitude Era of WWE led by “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, The Rock, The Undertaker, Triple H, Mick Foley and countless others, it was the voices of JR and The King that helped make it feel special. A lot of fans refer to them as the voices of their childhood.
While Lawler was featured prominently on WWE television for most of the last 30 years, he has had health issues this year after suffering a stroke in February. Recently, Lawler gave a health update to Sportskeeda:
“I’ve had a bunch of different things done, but I’m still going to rehab three times a week. Probably the main thing that’s drawing me back now as you could probably tell as you hear me talk, my voice is not the same as it was beforehand. It’s slowly coming back in, but it needs to come back a little more before I can go and do a lot of just making sense with my speech and vocabulary.”
Lawler also spoke about his rehab process.
“One is speech. That’s my main one. That’s three times a week. When I just started this right after I had the stroke, I could barely talk. Now I go in and I sit down with this rehab lady and we just talk about different things and she has me read stuff. All of this stuff has just helped me day in and day out to get my vocabulary better.”
“Then, I’m not sure what it’s called, but it’s where my right arm and my right leg and everything on the right side of the body is still, it’s not hurting me where I can’t walk around, I can still walk around, but I don’t have really good control of writing my autograph.”
Jim Ross reunites with Jerry “The King” Lawler for breakfast in Memphis
On his Facebook page, Jim Ross posted a photo of a reunion with Jerry Lawler with the two men having breakfast in Memphis. As most fans, Jerry is a Memphis wrestling legend, so that’s where he lives. JR was in town because AEW Collision was in Memphis on Saturday night.
Lawler has a white goatee now so he looks different than when he was on TV, but the good thing is they are both doing well.
Check out the reunion photo below.
Everybody at TJRWrestling wishes the WWE Hall of Famers Jim Ross and Jerry “The King” Lawler all the best and good health moving forward.
