Lawler is joined on today’s show by his co-host, Glenn Moore.
Lawler says it’s unbelievable how many people have responded to the news that he suffered a stroke a few weeks ago and he’s blown away by how much coverage it has received. He’s very thankful for all the get well wishes and messages he’s received from his fans.
He does admit that there have been some negative messages online, and some were directed at his girlfriend due to the fact that he suffered his stroke after being involved romantically with her. He points out that his stroke was caused by his high blood pressure, and it probably would have happened the next time his blood pressure rose to a certain level anyways. Thankfully, he’s back on his blood pressure medication now and his blood pressure has been regulated.
Lawler admits that he was fooled on Twitter this past week by a fake account. He thought the son of John Wayne had reached out to him and he was very excited about this. He then got his old friend, Jim Ross involved because Ross is a huge John Wayne fan and even has a John Wayne collection. After some time, both he and Ross realized that this was a hoax and some guy was impersonating John Wayne’s son.
Apparently this guy fooled a lot of people because the account had over 40,000 followers. Lawler doesn’t understand what some people do with their spare time, and he can’t figure out how someone can get off on impersonating other people on the internet and fooling people.
