Jim Ross Vows to Recruit Jerry Lawler Once His WWE Contract Expires


During Starrcast today, famed commentary theme Jim Ross and Jerry Lawler spoke openly in a Q&A session. Courtesy of Dominic DeAngelo WrestleZone on Twitter, we have some highlights:

  • Jim Ross promised to call the pay-per-view tomorrow night like a sporting event, this isn’t out of line with anything that the AEW team has said since starting the promotion.
  • Jerry Lawler says he feels the business is too choreographed and they don’t feed off the energy of the audience anymore. He cited The Rock versus Hollywood Hogan at WrestleMania 18 as an example of what he prefers to see.
  • Jerry Lawler says that Jim Carrey told both of JR and Jerry Lawler on the set of the 1999 Andy Kaufman biopic Man on the Moon that Hollywood values appearance over talent more often than not.
  • Jim Ross promised to pursue Jerry Lawler on behalf of AEW once his contract with WWE expired.
