• Jerry Lawler Isn’t Worried About Coronavirus, WWE Wrestler Calls Out People For Not Caring About Coronavirus
During a recent interview with Cerrito Live, WWE Hall of Famer Jerry Lawler was asked about the coronavirus situation and below is what “The King” said about it:
“What are you gonna do if you get it? They say there’s no treatment for it, there’s no cure for it. What are you gonna do? I’m not gonna hold myself inside a room here and quarantine myself like an idiot for who knows how long.
You go on and live your life and if you get sick then you go and get some kind of treatment. As they are saying now, the people that say they don’t recommend air travel they say they don’t have a treatment for this. Now more and more people are coming out and saying ‘well I got it but then I got over it.’
I know what I’m gonna do, I’m gonna fly and I’m gonna be at RAW on Monday night…You know why? Because I like to pick up my check every Monday for being at RAW every Monday night.”
On the other hand, former Cruiserweight Champion Lio Rush tweeted the following about this situation:
“The fact that some people are saying ‘We still have to live our lives’ is insane to me. Is going to a restaurant really worth your life?
Yeah you’re young, but your parents aren’t. Their parents AREN’T. Keep your stupid a$$ in the house.”
