• Jerry Lawler Explains Why He’s Not Happy With WWE’s King Of The Ring Tournament

During a recent interview with Wrestlinginc, WWE Hall of Famer Jerry “The King” Lawler explained why he’s not a fan of WWE’s King Of The Ring tournament.

Below is what Lawler said:

“When they had the very first King of the Ring tournament, that’s what made me show up in the WWE because I was a little PO’d about it, and I still am to be honest with you. It’s so easy to win a couple of matches and slide a crown on yourself and call yourself the King of the Ring. I’ve been doing this 49 years to earn this crown right here [shows off his crown].

For them to have a one-night or two-night tournament to crown a king, I’m not too crazy about it. But they use it as an opportunity to promote somebody and put somebody in the spotlight which, in that respect, I understand so I can’t be too upset about it.

I promised them that I wouldn’t go in the ring and spoil the coronation of the new king.”
