Jerry Lawler Talks Health Scare, Explains Why He Was Pulled From Commentary
WWE Hall Of Famer Jerry “The King” Lawler appeared on the WREG-3 local television show in Memphis recently to discuss the health scare he experienced this past Monday in Baltimore, Maryland.
Lawler told the hosts of the show that he went to lunch with his girlfriend and his stomach was feeling “queasy” before his food arrived. His said his girlfriend contacted his son Brian Lawler (aka Grandmaster Sexay) and told him. After that, the word apparently spread among the other wrestlers in the building at Old School RAW. As a result of the word getting around, Lawler was sent to the local hospital for a medical evaluation.
Lawler then said that despite it being revealed that he was battling a minor stomach flu, Vince McMahon made the call to pull him from television commentary that evening as a precautionary measure.
“The King” also mentioned that there ended up being even more fan concern due to the fact that he did not appear on the Old School RAW show. He said it was merely a 24-hour virus that his girlfriend is now battling.
