Jerry Lawler has held more recognized championships than any professional wrestler in history. Although Lawler has never won any championships in WWE, he has helped immortalize the weekly shows with his color commentary. In 2007, WWE inducted Lawler into the Hall Of Fame. He created a ton of memories on Monday Night RAW during that time, and he can’t wait to run it again next week.
Jerry Lawler is among the WWE legends announced for Monday Night RAW’s 30th-anniversary special next week. The King took this opportunity to express his earnest desire to return to the RAW commentary booth.
On Tuesday, Jerry Lawler took to Twitter to hype up his appearance for next week’s show. The WWE Hall of Famer has also been actively engaging with posts, possibly teasing a return to the commentary desk.
“See you all next week on the 30th anniversary of WWE’s MONDAY NIGHT RAW!!!”
WWE has not announced what capacity Jerry Lawler will appear on RAW next week. Whether Lawler is featured in a special segment or joins the commentary table is anyone’s guess. He has filled several roles on screen for WWE over the years.
Other names announced for Monday Night RAW’s 30th-anniversary special include The Undertaker, Shawn Michaels, Ric Flair, Road Dogg, Sean “X-Pac” Waltman, Farooq, Teddy Long, Kurt Angle, and the Bella Twins. However, there could be more surprises in store.
Jerry Lawler is currently signed to WWE, although he has not been at the commentary desk since April 2020. Lawler joined WWF in 1992 before exploring ECW and the indies. The King then returned to WWE in 2001 and has been with the company ever since.
In April 2020, Jerry Lawler was replaced by Samoa Joe on commentary, but Joe was eventually replaced by Corey Graves. Lawler’s sexually-charged quips during the Attitude Era may have ruffled a few feathers, but fans all over still compare him with the greats.
Jerry Lawler returned to wrestling in 2013 almost a year following his heart attack in an appearance in WWE. It’s unknown which role Lawler would take on next week, but a special edition of The King’s Court and some play-by-play commentary appear to be a most welcomed outcome.
