Before his heart attack, Lawler, 62, was scheduled to wrestle in two matches during the fair. Instead, he met fans and served as a ringside commentator.
Speaking to Action News 5 is Memphis, Tennessee, Lawler said WWE head Vince McMahon assured him to take as much as time off as he needs. Lawler, however, is targeting November for his return to the squared circle and broadcast booth. He originally wanted to return to the ring and booth this month, but McMahon felt it was "too soon."
