Let’s Say Nice Things About: Jerry Lawler

Use the comment section below to say something, anything, nice about Jerry Lawler. There is NO NEGATIVITY ALLOWED. Any negative comment will be deleted and, if need be, we will ban users who attempt to rain on the positivity parade here.

I’ll start:

So much about his wrestling heyday, but the one thing that stands out to me is his program with Andy Kaufman. Perfectly worked and put together by both men, this cross-platform feud brought new eyes to wrestling and raised its profile as a performing art among critical thinkers. It was ‘reality’ era when kayfabe was still alive & well. It was all those things, and still an incredibly hot rasslin angle, too.

Your turn.
