WWE Hall Of Famer Jerry “The King” Lawler recently spoke to Ocala.com about his match this Saturday at Dory Funk Jr’s Bang TV taping in Ocala, Florida. Lawler talked about getting ready to wrestle for the first time since suffering a heart attack during a live WWE RAW taping.
“He said everything looked great, that I was good to go. I asked if I can go back to doing what I’ve always done, and he said it wouldn’t be a problem, that it actually should be good because it will be cardio work, which is good for me.

He told me, ‘Yeah, no problem.’ I then told him, ‘Well, I never could before, so why now?’”
