Jerry Lawler Opens Up About Health, WWE Contract, and Future Plans

Jerry Lawler Opens Up About Health, WWE Contract, and Future Plans – In May, it was reported that WWE would not be renewing Jerry Lawler’s broadcasting contract. Lawler, a legendary voice of the Attitude Era, acknowledged that this likely marked the end of his career with the company in that capacity. Speaking on “Going Ringside” (via News4JAX), Lawler provided updates on his health and future plans.

“I’m sort of hobbling around right now, I just had a knee replacement on my right knee. It’s doing good, but it’s a little bit of hobbling here and there,” Lawler said.

When it was noted that he seemed to be doing well, Lawler noted that it might seem like that, but it was a little tough at home, as he was living by himself. That being said, he noted that it seemed to get better.

“Well, I seem to be doing pretty well. People just see me like this, but at home, I live by myself. It’s a little tough there right now. But it’s seemed to get better,” Lawler said.

When asked about his WWE contract ending, Lawler confirmed that his commentating contract ended. However, he said that he was still under a Legends Deal with the company.

“The commentating contract [ended]. I had two strokes about seven months ago, and so they started…that’s not good for commentary. But I’m still under contract with them,” Lawler said.

Lawler noted that he’s not watching a lot of wrestling right now. He also said that he was starting to travel more and make more appearances following his knee replacement.
