The Honky Tonk Man Addresses Jerry Lawler, WWE Diva Announces Engagement

– The Honky Tonk Man stated on Facebook that he is interested in assuming the Raw commentator’s position for one night only while Jerry “The King” Lawler recovers from Monday’s heart attack.

The WWE Legend is the first cousin of Lawler, though the two have long had an unsteady relationship due to family issues. He addressed his relationship with Lawler: “Jerry and I have not seen eye to eye on the pro side of the business sometimes, but we buried the hacthet a few yrs. ago. I am what I am and he is what he is. He is my first cousin with our mothers who are sisters who are both passed on now. Jerry and I had a 100 matches against each other. We had a respect not as family but as professionals. He was a master at talking and in ring work. I myself copied his work. I can only hope he can be the King again.”

– Eve Torres announced on Twitter Thursday that she is engaged to Rener Gracie, her boyfriend of several years.

Enclosing a photo of her engagement ring, she tweeted, “I’ve never been so happy! @RenerGracie.”

    Congratulation to Eve. I’m sure there are a few jealous souls out there. Wondering if she’s gonna change her ring name once she ties the knot. I wouldn’t have any complaints, though, if she opted to ditch the ‘Torres’ in favor of her husband-to-be’s surname, Gracier. I think the fact that they are both Spanish names does help maintain the element of similarity. Eve Gracier sounds good to me!

    Cena must have moved on to AJ now…. There goes Eves push.

  • Peter Ballack

    @Muscleman: Is Stephanie referred to as ‘Stephanie McMahon Levesque’ live on WWE programming?

    No. So there’s no reason that Eve’s ring name would change either.

    Typical Honky Tonk, much like when Big Bossman died and HTM called all the promoters who’d booked the Bossman offering to take his spot on the card, with a prepaid retainer of course. For the fans. lol
    Maybe he’s sincere about this with Lawler, but if the past is any idication, it’s more of the same.
    In any case, I love hearing the guy talk though. He’s a dirtbag, but then again, he’s never claimed to be anything other than.

    um…@muscleman….gracie…GRACIE is a brazilian name not spanish…rener gracie is apart of the legendary gracie jui jitsu family

    My dad went to school with Honky Tonk Man, and can confirm that he was, is, and always will be, beyond any shadow of a doubt, a complete and total dick.

  • Chelsii.

    I had no idea she was even in a relationship. :O

  • matthew

    honky tonk man should take over for lawler full time. lawler sucks as the announcer.

  • WrestlingHarold

    Honky Tonk Man has only a good idea. WWE should do guest host commentary on Raw until Jerry”the king” Lawler is able to return. A few names could be shawn micheals, mick foley, road dogg, billy gunn. William Regal just to name a few. Even good old JR.

  • WrestlingHarold

    Few more would be Paul Hemen,Roddy Piper Jimmy Hart.
