WWE RAW was missing Jerry “The King” Lawler on commentary this week. Lawler had previously stated that he intended on carrying on with his scheduled life through the COVID-19 pandemic.
During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer brought up Jerry Lawler’s absence from WWE RAW this week. There is no word that The King is sick, but they wanted to be extra certain that he remained safe.
“Lawler not being on the show tonight I’m sure everybody if they watched the show noticed that. It’s you know the minute he wasn’t there I presumed something and in fact, it is the case that it’s better to be safe than sorry. You don’t really need Lawler, you don’t really need Lawler this week.”
It was noted that “Lawler wanted to go,” but WWE decided to use caution instead. Meltzer also said that when Lawler arrived in Orlando last week for RAW he decided not to go back to Memphis and just stay there. “Somebody must have talked something into him,” he said.
At this time it was not said that Jerry Lawler is sick, but the company just didn’t want to take any unnecessary chances.
