A veritable icon whether he's dropping fists inside the ring or calling the action from ringside, Jerry "The King" Lawler has cemented himself as one of the most accomplished color commentators and Superstars in history.
A 2007 WWE Hall of Fame inductee, Lawler is a favorite among WWE fans for his historic career and weekly contributions on Monday Night Raw with broadcast partners Jim Ross and, following the 2008 WWE Draft, Michael Cole.
A self-proclaimed king, this excitable and outspoken Raw color commentator from Memphis, Tennessee, has been dishing it out with the microphone and in the ring dating back 30 years. He got his original break back home in the Memphis wrestling circuit. It's his gift of gab and southern pride that have on occasion led to "The King" lacing up the boots and getting in the ring again.
While "The King" has scored victories over legends such as Terry Funk and Hulk Hogan during his career, he is perhaps best known for his rivalry with entertainer Andy Kaufman. This led to a role alongside Jim Carrey in the hit film, Man in the Moon. The Lawler-Kaufman battles raged not only in the ring, but on television as well. Lawler's incident on Late Night with David Letterman where he slapped Kaufman is considered one of the most memorable moments in that show's history.
