New, comments

Jerry Lawler sits down with Peter Rosenberg for a long interview that touches on a variety of subjects, including his heart attack and subsequent return to WWE, not to mention his future in the pro wrestling industry.

It's almost hard to believe it's now been since Sept. 10, 2012, that Jerry "The King" Lawler had a heart attack live on the air during an episode of Monday Night Raw in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. He almost lost his life that day, but thanks to the quick response of the WWE medical team, he was revived, taken to the hospital, and treated for a blockage.

Now, he's back on the road with the company full time.

It's an amazing story and Peter Rosenberg gets him to talk about it plenty. In fact, he even gets Lawler to open up about the night Owen Hart died in 1999 during the Over the Edge pay-per-view (PPV) event.

Lawler also talks extensively about Andy Kaufman, Jim Carrey, and so much more.

Enjoy!
