Lawler to do first public appearance at Mid-South Fair today

Jerry Lawler is set to make his first public appearance since his heart attack today at the Mid-South Fair in Southaven, Memphis, according to the Memphis-based The Commercial Appeal.

The WWE Hall of Famer will be part of a meet and greet at the Landers Center in Southaven during wrestling matches at the fair. He was originally scheduled to compete in two different matches during the fair but obviously he won’t be doing any in-ring action now.

Instead of wrestling, Lawler will be doing ringside commentary according to the paper.

“We can’t tell you how excited we are that he’s willing to come down and be a part of the Mid South Fair. Jerry has been a true ambassador for the Mid-South Fair. This is a great example of that ambassadorship,” Mid-South Fair board president Mike McGee said.
