Lawler at one point was set to wrestle two matches but instead greeted fans and worked as a ringside commentator.
Lawler also did an interview with Action News 5 in Memphis, Tennessee. He stated WWE boss Vince McMahon told Lawler to take off as much time as he needs. Lawler though is planning November to return full-time to the ring and broadcast booth. Lawler said he wanted to return this month, but McMahon thought that would be "too soon."
Lawler will next be making an appearance at the October 16 Smackdown tapings in Memphis, TN next.
