    It will be interesting to see WWE's reaction to this. He should be 'suspended indefinitely' a la Adam Rose. More so actually since there was an actual gun involved

    Suspended indefinitely apparently. On phone so can't link it. Came up on bleacher report app

    Corey Graves call up in time for Smackdown live?

    Be interesting to see if they explain his absence on Smackdown

    Corey Graves being promoted to Smackdown sooner than we thought so.

    MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Jerry Lawler was arrested at his home Friday morning by the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office in Memphis, Tenn.

    According to a police report, Lawler and his girlfriend, Lauryn McBride, were taken into custody and booked on alleged charges of domestic assault—bodily harm, a misdemeanor.

    WWE has zero tolerance for matters involving domestic violence, and per our policy, Jerry Lawler has been suspended indefinitely following his arrest.


    While I agree with the suspension (they dont have much choice following Rose's), I feel there should be a line somewhere like "...has been suspended indefinitely until the investigation has been concluded". You know, an "innocent until proven guilty" slant.

    Lawler has a really poor track record with women and how he treats them. Id say hes done and lets be honest, he should have been done years ago.

    I'd Imagine they won't even acknowledge it or him ever again.

    Jaysus that sounds dodgy and not just cos King is 66 and his Fiancee is 27 (Jaysus 39 year difference... think about that he was 39 when she was born!)

    She says he hit her and offered her a gun to kill herself, while he says she was drunk threw a candle at him, kicked him in the balls and then threatened to kill herself... WWE won't be putting Jerry back on TV anytime soon.


    I actually predicted that the WWE would promote Graves to SD recently but now it seems like almost a certainty. Until the draft though I'm sure they could get by with just two on the table as tbh Lawler wasn't exactly adding huge amouts in recent years

    King Ross to have field day with this.


  • Registered Users Posts: 28,787 ✭✭✭✭CastorTroy


    He may have to change his gimmick. :)

    Booker may replace on a temporary basis or JBL do double duty until the live shows


  • Registered Users Posts: 60,274 ✭✭✭✭Agent Coulson


    Lawler will be no loss whatsoever.


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,170 ✭✭✭✭B.A._Baracus


    Jerry Lawyer comes off as a right douchebag. A lot said about him over the years.

    Actually, Kevin Nash once said in an YouShoot that he asked Lawler once for advice on wrestling (must have been 1993) and the response he got was 'this has taken me years to learn this, you think I'm gonna tell you?'

    Nash's response to that was 'alrighty then '

    Both stories are remarkably in sync there.

    They've been together a few years now, no f*cking way it was a healthy relationship. The fact she got involved with him alone is a pretty worrying sign for her sanity, couple that with Lawler's obnoxious and completely deluded sense of self-righteousness (I guarantee if you listen to any long interview with him that you'll hate him by the end)... can easily imagine him goading her into a pretty extreme reaction and then retaliating, telling himself he done nothing in the wrong.


    He's done. The only reason he was still around for the past ten years was because Vince loves people who don't need him.

    I actually really enjoyed listening to him on Jericho's podcast a few months back. He has some great stories.

    No idea what he's like in his personal life though. This story doesn't sound good.

    Always a silver lining. wwe have set a precedent with adam rose earlier this year so jerry lawler will have more time to concentrate on his new business venture in memphis.

    In fairness, just about everyone comes across well on Jericho's podcast. Start asking him for his opinions on anything though...

    not really, WWE effectively pushed Rose out the door in that a guy in his early 30s with a family and like no major savings being put on indefinite unpaid suspension is going to need to leave, but that doesn't mean the precedent is to sack the guy.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,758 ✭✭✭RedemptionZ


    Jesus that's some age difference. Doesn't look good at all. But innocent until proven guilty, no matter how bad things might look he deserves a fair trial, in court and on social media.


  • Registered Users Posts: 48,990 ✭✭✭✭Lithium93_


    That's Lawler definitely gone so, no way will he be let back with open arms after this....

    I certainly won't miss him when he's eventually future endeavored, his best years are well behind him.

    Ah Lawler has a record for praying on young vulnerable girls, I well believe the story is true.

    Hes a wrestling legend, and one of the best but hes a creep in real life.

    Might have been the way that Kevin Nash asked Lawler. Let's be honest, Nash has never exactly tried to be the most likable guy in wrestling.

    yeah, I'm reserving judgement til we have some FACTS, it's worth bearing in mind that both of them were arrested, not just Jerry.

    True. Nash, while a funny dude, has had his moments of douchbagery too :pac:

    Truth be told both as bad as each other.

    Yep, maybe withhold the burning torches until we get the proper story! A small point but knee-jerk "he's gone forever" ideas won't stick - Lawler was taken off TV in 93 when he was accused of raping a teenager. When it came to light that she made it all up, he was brought back (for WM X). So if he's not doing jail time for domestic assault, I'm confident Vince will let him -- the WWE Hall of Famer -- back in when it all blows over.

    Didn't see that replacement on Smackdown coming. Wonder if he's permanent

    That particular individual is doing
    superstars now as well
    so not that much of a shock being honest.


  • Registered Users Posts: 28,787 ✭✭✭✭CastorTroy


    Ah right, I don't watch that so didn't know. But wonder if it's just to fill in until the live shows start.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 16,096 ✭✭✭✭the groutch


    with the three man commentary team, it's always the lead guy with one face and one heel colour commentator, so it makes sense.

    Charges dropped and he's back. Via Observer:
    Jerry Lawler's holiday weekend got off to a good start Friday as domestic assault charges against he and his fiancee were dismissed in a Memphis, TN, courtroom. Later on in the day, his suspension from WWE was lifted, effective immediately according to Pro Wrestling Sheet.

    The 66-year-old Lawler and 27-year-old Lauryn McBride were arrested several weeks ago after police came to their West Memphis, TN, home after a violent altercation between the two. Police arrested both of them as they couldn't determine who was the primary aggressor. The charges will be removed from their records.
