Jerry Lawler is beloved by millions of pro wrestling fans, but he hasn’t been in the best health as of late. After suffering stroke last year, he couldn’t even physically attend the WWE Hall of Fame to induct Andy Kaufman, as he sent in a video message instead. Now, we have even more bad news.

Fans who were anticipating this event will need to wait a little longer to meet the legendary Jerry Lawler. TMart Promotions is still committed to rescheduling the appearance once Lawler has made a full recovery. You can read the full realase below.
“Unfortunately this Update is not good news.
After waiting and waiting and holding out hope I was informed today that due to continued health issues Jerry the King Lawler has to cancel.
Jerry was someone we really wanted to be at the event. We had tried last year but he was already booked to be somewhere else in 2022. I had made it a point to get Jerry Booked very early this year and it was before he got sick. We are very sorry for those that wanted to meet the King. We know he was a major want for alot of people.
We have to understand that Jerry health comes first and unfortunately he has to pull out and is just unable to travel and do these types of things right now.
All of us wish the King a speedy recovery and that eventually he will make his return to what he loves doing.
Anyone that ordered Autograph or Photo Op tickets for the King you can get a full refund or use it for other items you may want.
I’ll be reaching out to you all over the next few days.”
