• Jerry Lawler Recalls Someone Taking A Crap In His Crown When He Joined WWF

While speaking on the latest episode of Broken Skull Sessions, WWE Hall Of Famer Jerry “The King” Lawler recalled an incident backstage where someone crapped in his crown.

Below is what he said:

“What had happened was there were a lot of guys that had worked for Jerry Jarrett and me in the past down in Memphis and you know how things go with them. Your life — your shelf life — was only so long in the territory so guys would come in and eventually, you’d have to give them their notice or fire them and let them move on to another territory.

So, when I came into the WWF, there were several guys that had worked for Jerry Jarrett and I that didn’t have fond memories. They either felt like they didn’t make any money down there or they felt like they got fired for no reason or that sort of thing, so there was some animosity towards some guys.

There was a little incident that happened one night, I came back, we were going back to the dressing room and Jimmy Hart — Jimmy Hart was a great friend of mine and still is today — comes running in and says, ‘King, don’t go in there! Don’t go in and look at your crown.’ And I said, ‘What are you talking about?’ and he said, ‘Somebody took a crap in your crown…’ and so I said, ‘OK’ and I went right in and talked to Vince.

I said, ‘Hey, I can understand why there’s some people that are not going to take a shine to me right away and so if that’s the case, I don’t have to be here, I’ll go back to Memphis. And he said, ‘No, I promise you nothing like that will happen again’ and sure enough from that time on, there was no problem.”
