Jerry Lawler concerned pro wrestling fans all over when he went down due to a stroke. The WWE Hall of Famer spent some time in the hospital, but he was finally released and sent home. It seems that he’s not too eager to leave the house at this point.

Jerry Lawler had a schedule full of events, but sadly, he can’t make all of those appearances now. It seems that fans who were waiting to see The King of Memphis Wrestling will be a bit bummed.

PW Insider Elite dropped an update on Jerry Lawler’s health. It was noted that he recently had to pull out of an appearance due to his still-recovering status.

WWE Hall of Famer Jerry Lawler continues to recover from his stroke.  He has pulled out of next week’s Chiller Theater convention in New Jersey as he’s just not up for three days of appearances but we are told he’s been making slow but sure strides in the right direction.  Lawler is slated for this July’s Gathering IV convention in Charlotte, NC, where he will reunite with Austin Idol and Tommy Rich for fan photo-ops, recreating that late 1980s Memphis feud.


Jerry Lawler made an appearance at the 2023 WWE Hall of Fame during Andy Kaufman’s induction speech. This appearance was via a pre-taped video message that he recorded from his home.

We’re sending out our best to Jerry Lawler during this time. It’s a good thing that he is taking things easy right now, because The King has been through a lot over the last few months.
