Jerry Lawler Pulled From Upcoming Event Amid Health Issues

Jerry Lawler Pulled From Upcoming Event Amid Health Issues WWE

There has been a new update on the ongoing health issues of Jerry ‘The King’ Lawler following the cancellation of a scheduled appearance in early August.

Lawler has been dealing with various health troubles since suffering a stroke in February.

While there had been positive updates in the immediate months afterwards, recently it was indicated that there have been complications in his recovery, with close friend Dutch Mantell stating in June that Lawler was doing “much better, but still not recovering as well as they would hope”.

In a Facebook post on July 10, Martin Damato, promoter of the TMart Promotions’ ‘The Gathering’ event confirmed that Lawler’s appearance has been pulled, writing:

Unfortunately this Update is not good news.

After waiting and waiting and holding out hope I was informed today that due to continued health issues Jerry the King Lawler has to cancel.

Jerry was someone we really wanted to be at the event. We had tried last year but he was already booked to be somewhere else in 2022.

I had made it a point to get Jerry Booked very early this year and it was before he got sick. We are very sorry for those that wanted to meet the King. We know he was a major want for alot of people.

We have to understand that Jerry health comes first and unfortunately he has to pull out and is just unable to travel and do these types of things right now.

All of us wish the King a speedy recovery and that eventually he will make his return to what he loves doing.

 Anyone that ordered Autograph or Photo Op tickets for the King you can get a full refund or use it for other items you may want.

I’ll be reaching out to you all over the next few days.

Lawler was recently name-dropped by Logan Paul on an episode of Raw ahead of Money In The Bank.

The Hall of Famer’s reaction to this reference has now been revealed.

We at WrestleTalk would like to continue to extend our well wishes to Jerry Lawler in his ongoing recovery.
