Fans remember the scare last year when Jerry Lawler had stroke in February, which was made even more alarming by the paralysis he experienced just before it struck. Fortunately he recovered and now, after undergoing double knee replacement surgery, Lawler has given an update on his condition.

Following the stroke, Lawler underwent a series of surgeries. While he has made significant progress in his recovery, there have been lingering effects. The wrestling community rallied around him during this challenging time, sending well wishes and support his way.

As previously reported, Jerry Lawler underwent double knee replacement surgery. While doing a virtual signing for East Coast Autograph Auctions, the WWE Hall of Famer provided an update on his condition and confirmed that he is in good health.

“My health is great. I just (went) over to the doctors to get back on the road from my knee replacement and then of course, still some minor difficulties from the stroke. But all of that stuff is coming around fast.”


AEW stars stole Jerry Lawler’s lifetime achievement award well. Nevertheless, it remains to be seen whether Jerry Lawler will ever make his return to WWE television somewhere down the line.
