Jerry “The King” Lawler will likely never wrestle for WWE again, but the 71-year-old legend is still very active and has not retired from in-ring competition. He proved that he still has what it takes at WrestleFest 25 last night when the took on Enzo Amore in a very interesting gimmick match.
Lawler and Amore threw down in a casket match at WrestleFest 25. This was an interesting booking, but everyone enjoyed themselves. The King won the match, but Amore also got a great reaction from the fans.
Enzo came out to Dean Martin’s version of “That’s Amore” as his entrance music. He still had the same energy while coming out to the crooner’s song, and then he cut a short promo for the crowd. Enzo was careful not to say “Amore,” because WWE owns that name. Instead, he raised up his microphone and let the crowd say that banned last name for him.
In the end, Lawler won the match and put the 34-year-old former WWE Superstar in a casket. The King won the match with one of his trademark punches. This was quite a surprising booking, but the crowd had a lot of fun in the process.
You can check out some images and video from the match below. It was quite a unique experience, to say the least.
