Jerry “The King” Lawler returns to the ring two days after burying his son

Jerry “The King” Lawler returned to the ring for USA Championship Wrestling two days after burying his son Brian.

Lawler told ABC affiliate WBBJ 7 Eyewitness News that being in the ring yesterday was “almost therapeutic” for him as ever since he got the call about his son, it has been a nightmare.

“I think the main thing was, at least for me, it was something that Brian would have been proud of. It was something that Brian would have loved to have been a part of and, in a sense, he was,” Lawler added.

Lawler, who sported his son’s wrestling vest as a tribute, wrestled former WWE star James Ellsworth on the show.

On Twitter, Ellsworth wrote, “Just wrestled the most emotional match of my career. Words can’t describe the amount of respect I have for @JerryLawler. It’s a true honor and pleasure to share the ring with him always.”
