David Arquette Returning to Wrestling for Tag Match Against Jerry Lawler


In a match that is tailor-made for the wild the year that has been 2019, Northeast Wrestling will host a match that will see David Arquette team with Brian Anthony to go against current NEW Tag Team Champions, Keith Youngblood and Jerry ‘The King’ Lawler.

While speaking to Sports Illustrated, David Arquette noted that he understands that his body is telling him he doesn’t have too many more of these matches left in him so he wants to make this match with Jerry Lawler special:

“My body isn’t holding up. My neck keeps going out, my back keeps going out. I love wrestling and I love meeting the fans. And you can’t half-time anything in wrestling. If you’re not all-in on training, you won’t be ready to take those bumps.
“But Lawler is one of those people who think I was a disgrace to wrestling. I’m not the kid who won the belt 19 years ago. I’ve trained, I’ve put in the time, I’ve paid my dues. I have something to prove against Jerry Lawler.”

Jerry Lawler, no stranger to taking on celebrities in a wrestling ring had the following to say about this match:

“David Arquette needs to remember that I’ll forget more about wrestling than he’ll ever learn. He’s making me re-live 1983 all over again with Andy Kaufman, so I’m treating him like Andy and that’s why I gave him the piledriver.
“My history of slapping around Hollywood stars includes Kaufman and Jim Carrey. But as far as these stars getting the best of me, it hasn’t happened yet—and it won’t happen with David Arquette.”
