Jerry “The King” Lawler returning to the ring this month

WWE Hall of Famer Jerry “The King” Lawler will be wrestling for the first time since his heart attack when he teams up with fellow Hall of Famer Dory Funk Jr., on Saturday, May 25 as part of the !Bang! TV show in Florida.

“The King” suffered a heart attack on the September 10, 2012, live edition of Monday Night RAW while doing commentary. The 63 year old Lawler was saved by the ringside WWE doctor who performed CPR and other life-saving measures on him. He had to be shocked several times backstage before he was brought back to life.

Jim Ross, Lawler’s long time broadcast partner said that he is getting back in the ring because he loves professional wrestling and not because he needs the cash. Ross admitted he didn’t speak to Lawler about this decision and said that his cardiologist must have signed off on getting back in the ring.
