Posted by Matt Boone September 21, 2013 0 Comment

The following are highlights from a recent interview with both Jerry “The King” Lawler and Jim Ross:

Jerry Lawler on if he will ever wrestle on a full-time basis following his heart attack: “I don’t wrestle on a full-time schedule anymore, but I still enjoy getting back in there. It’s exercise and it’s fun. I’ve enjoyed doing this my entire career. If I can do it once or twice a week, it’s cool for me. It’s just getting back on the horse again. I don’t worry about it. I don’t sit around and wonder if it’s going to be the same thing that‘s going to happen to me again. I don’t think anything different about it.”

Jim Ross on leaving WWE and pursuing other opportunities: “I’ll be doing just normal type stuff now. After going on the road for a few years, and I loved it, I lived my dream and that’s the greatest thing in the world. But I’m short of the 40-year mark in the business and it made sense to slow down a bit. I’m healthy and there’s other things I’d like to try. It’s a good time to be JR. I’m really happy with the way things worked out.”
