Jerry Lawler Comments on His Return to WWE’s Commentary Booth
The debut episode of The Jerry Lawler Show podcast had Jerry “The King” Lawler discuss his thoughts on his recent return to WWE’s RAW commentary booth.
Lawler – “They have a hard time believing it, but I don’t really – I’m not crazy about being a commentator. It’s not – at least to me – it’s not fun. It’s a lot of pressure. It’s a lot of preparation.”
Reedy – “Is it a different pressure from being a main event wrestler?”
Lawler – “Oh, yes! Absolutely. The difference in that is, I feel so confident when I’m in the ring as a wrestler that I – I don’t know if that comes from doing it for so long – almost 49 years – or what. I just feel self-confident about knowing what to do, when to do it, and I never go into a match thinking, ‘Oh my God, I’m going to screw this up.’”
