Jerry Lawler Reveals Target Date For Return To The Ring and Announce Booth

Jerry “The King” Lawler, who suffered a heart attack while announcing at a WWE event in Montreal Sept. 10, made his first public appearance on Friday at an independent wrestling show that took place at the Mid-South Fair in South Haven, Mississippi.

Before his heart attack, Lawler, 62, was scheduled to wrestle in two matches. Instead, he met fans and served as a ringside commentator.

Speaking to Action News 5 is Memphis, Tennessee, Lawler said WWE head Vince McMahon assured him to take as much time off as he needs. Lawler, however, is targeting November for his full-time return to the squared circle and broadcast booth. He originally wanted to return to the ring and booth this month, but McMahon felt it was “too soon.”

Before making his full-time return, Lawler will appear at the October 16 SmackDown taping in Memphis, Tennessee.

    Not to be a Dick but maybe he shouldn’t of been scheduled to wrestle 2 matches in 1 night. That’s not even good for the young guys to wrestle 2 matches in 1 night

    Some people are just too brave.
