- The Honky Tonk Man stated on Facebook that he is interested in assuming the Raw commentator’s position for one night only while Jerry “The King” Lawler recovers from Monday’s heart attack.

The WWE Legend is the first cousin of Lawler, though the two have long had an unsteady relationship due to family issues. He addressed his relationship with Lawler:

“Jerry and I have not seen eye to eye on the pro side of the business sometimes, but we buried the hacthet a few yrs. ago. I am what I am and he is what he is. He is my first cousin with our mothers who are sisters who are both passed on now. Jerry and I had a 100 matches against each other. We had a respect not as family but as professionals. He was a master at talking and in ring work. I myself copied his work. I can only hope he can be the King again.”
