Memphis Tennessee is a very special place for pro wrestling. The city has hosted a ton of memories and it looks like they’re set to hold one more.
Jerry “The King” Lawler made Memphis his home and ran that territory well as a huge draw and top heel for years. The fans there know him well and love seeing The King back on the job. It looks like they will get their wish as well because Lawler is confirmed for SmackDown Live tonight.
WWE sent out a notice making Lawler’s appearance official. The WWE Hall Of Famer will be interviewing AJ Styles ahead of his Money In The Bank match against Shinsuke Nakamura. Styles will face Nakamura in a last man standing match so he might have plenty to say.
Jerry Lawler still works indie wrestling shows from time to time but hasn’t been a mainstay in WWE since suffering heart issues while on the air. Hopefully, he’ll be able to stay out of harm’s way tonight.
