Jerry “The King” Lawler Successful In Return Match This Weekend
WWE Hall of Famer Jerry Lawler successfully returned to the ring this weekend for Dory Funk Jr.’s !Bang! promotion in Ocala, Florida. This was his first match since suffering a heart attack during a live broadcast of RAW.
Lawler worked an eight person mixed tag match, teaming with Funk, Johnny Magnum and Jessica Hill to defeat Cory Weston, Quinton Hitchcock, Romero Youngblood and Hollywood Heather.
Lawler kicked off the match with the theme being that he wouldn’t engage Heather physically. After about 15 minutes into the match, she finally slapped him and Lawler drilled her with a piledriver for the pin.
