Jerry Lawler Speaks Out – Vince McMahon, WrestleMania, More


The Miami Herald recently interviewed Jerry Lawler, here are the highlights…

On Vince McMahon: “Well, yea, the reason, and he would not like me to blow his horn, but the reason WrestleMania made it, and the others didn’t simply was because of Vince McMahon. There’s nobody that’s more dedicated, and nobody who loves the WWE more than Vince McMahon. WrestleMania is the ultimate thing to him, and every year it’s grown bigger and bigger. I swear. I’ve been probably involved in 17 or 18 WrestleManias, and every single year, when WrestleMania is over, I honestly say to myself, ‘Well, no way they’ll ever top this,’ and somehow every single year they do.”

On His Favorite WM Moment: “My favorite moments for actually calling the action, there have been so many,” he said. “One match that I really enjoyed calling was The Rock against Hulk Hogan [WrestleMania 18 in 2002 in Toronto]. That was a match you thought you’d never see. I’d put that like a match between Muhammad Ali and Mike Tyson. It was just something you thought would never happen, and it was a great match. As far as I’m concerned, of the matches I’ve seen, it was probably Hulk Hogan’s best match ever, and The Rock was fabulous in it. So I thought that match was great.”
