Jerry “The King” Lawler

For over 40 years, WWE Hall of Famer Jerry “The King” Lawler has been abusing opponents with his fists or with a microphone….sometimes both!

With over 140 championships to his credit, Lawler is no doubt one of the most accomplished and decorated superstars in wrestling history, earning him a place in the WWE Hall of Fame in 2007. And while he holds victories over almost every major wrestler of the last thirty years, he is best known for his feud with comedian Andy Kaufman including a very memorable confrontation on Late Night with David Letterman where Lawler slapped Kaufman right out of his chair!

The King still laces up his boots every now and then and he’s still a regular on WWE programming. He’s also the star of the incredibly popular “Dinner With The King” podcast, the proprietor of a popular nightclub on Beale St, and the owner of a popular BBQ chain.

Most recently, The King has been making a splash in the comic book world contributing painted covers for the critically acclaimed wrestling comic book, Headlocked.
