Jerry Lawler plans to be at Smackdown tapings on 10/16 in Memphis

Jerry “The King” Lawler plans to attend the Smackdown tapings in his hometown of Memphis, Tennessee, when WWE rolls into town on October 16.

The WWE Hall of Famer suffered a heart attack three weeks ago and made a quick recovery, although there is no timetable on when he will be back working behind the broadcast table for RAW every week.

This would be his first in-person appearance at a WWE show since that almost tragic Monday night. Last week he appeared live via satellite from his home for a short interview with Michael Cole.

Lawler appeared on News Channel 3 yesterday to talk about his heart attack, recovery, the support he received from fans worldwide, returning to wrestling for sure, and his announcement that he’ll appear in person on the 16th.
