WWE Hall of Famer Jerry “The King” Lawler, who has been dealing with various health issues, is no longer under a full-time WWE contract, sparking speculation about a potential reunion with his long-time broadcast colleague, Jim Ross in AEW or another promotion.

In recent interview on Busted Open Radio, Good Ol JR hinted that such a reunion could happen. When asked by ECW legend Tommy Dreamer about the possibility of a one-time reunion with Lawler in AEW during a visit to Memphis, Ross stated that a one-off thing could happen as he believed that Lawler was not looking at a weekly schedule much like Jim Ross himself who is only doing commentary for pay-per-view shows.

“I think so. A one-off. I don’t think he wants to reinvest in a weekly schedule. I certainly don’t. I’m only doing pay-per-views now for Tony Khan, and I’m very comfortable with that. I’m happy with that. I’ve kind of paid my dues, and I’m content with my schedule. I’m grateful that Tony Khan respects my schedule, allowing me to live a little longer. I still get excited about it, man.”

Jerry Lawler is still currently under a WWE Legends deal, which could prevent an AEW appearance at this time. Moreover, Ringside News reached out to find more details regarding his health status after he suffered a minor stroke. An exclusive report stated that Lawler had mobility issues and speech impairment and now required aid for daily activities.


With Jerry Lawler facing major difficulties in everyday life due to his health ailments, it seems a reunion with Jim Ross for commentary duties seems off the cards for the immediate future.
