Jerry “The King” Lawler is one of the longest-lived figures in Professional Wrestling today. Born in Memphis in 1949 and active since 1970, his commitments and the federations in which he has competed over the course of these almost 54 years are countless.

Today, people still talk about Jerry Lawler, although the topics of discussion focus on things much more serious than his career. In fact, lately, people have been talking more and more about his health: not much time has passed (about a year) since we were all holding our breath due to a very serious stroke that had struck him and that had even made us fear for his life.

Fortunately, everything was resolved differently although the consequences have not disappeared: Lawler is still following a recovery path to defeat as much as possible the paralysis caused by the stroke and has undergone two surgeries on one knee.

But as satisfactory as the results seem, Jerry Lawler is far from being able to consider himself cured... Indeed.

Latest news on Jerry Lawler

During a recent episode of “Story Time with Dutch Mantell” the host was asked about Jerry Lawler’s condition after his massive stroke, and Mantell stated that he had heard that The King had suffered another stroke, albeit a smaller one.

It seems that this happened in the last month. However, there has been no official announcement regarding this new illness, and the rehabilitation process continues. However, his professional future in the wrestling world remains in doubt.

The former commentator recently said: "I've been doing a lot of different things, and I'm still in rehab three times a week. You can probably hear it when I'm talking, but my voice is not the same as it used to be. It's slowly coming back, but I need it to come back a little bit before I can make sense of my speaking and my vocabulary." Lawler was then asked to describe his rehab routine: "First and foremost is the speaking.

That's the main thing. I practice three times a week. When I first started rehabbing this, right after I had the stroke, I could barely speak. Now I go in and sit with this woman from rehab, and we talk about different things. She's got me reading stuff, and all of that has helped me, day by day, improve my vocabulary."
