Jerry Lawler is a WWE Hall of Famer, who has never officially hung up his pro wrestling boots. Sadly, he suffered a stroke in recent memory, a terrible health event that could throw a wrench in all of his future plans. Now, we have a bit of an update on how The King is doing.

Last month, fans received an update on Jerry Lawler that he was out of the ICU. The plan was for him to return home and receive outpatient therapy at that time.

PW Insider was able to provide more of an update, as they confirmed that Jerry Lawler has returned to his home in Memphis, Tennessee. He had been in Florida attending that outpatient therapy since then.


WWE Hall of Famer and Memphis Wrestling legend has recovered enough that he was able to return home to Memphis, TN this morning. 

Lawler had been staying at his home in Florida to undergo outpatient therapy after suffering a stroke in February.

Jerry Lawler’s health challenges have been widely recognized by fans in recent times, including a life-threatening heart attack in 2012 during a Monday Night RAW broadcast, with Michael Cole stepping in to fill his role during his absence.

We’re sending out our best to Jerry Lawler at this time. He has gone through a lot health-wise in front of his fans, and hopefully that stroke will be the last bad news we hear about the beloved WWE Hall of Famer for a long time to come.
