Lawler gives his reasoning.
Two days ago a photo and video made the rounds on social media of WWE Hall Of Famer Jerry "The King" Lawler sitting front row at a rally in Mississippi for President Donald Trump. Lawler received tons of backlash on social media for what appeared to be his support of Donald Trump.
Lawler spoke about the hate messages and mail he received when he was interviewed by TMZ Sports. The Hall Of Famer stated that he was asked to go to the rally and added that he was not there to see the President, but was there to see a fellow WWE Hall Of Famer.
“Well it’s funny you know, Donald Trump was right near Memphis - our hometown so we were asked by some people to go to the rally and I went and unbelievably received from [some on] social media - some actual hate mail just for going to the rally of Donald Trump but I wanted to tell everybody, I wasn’t going there to see the President, I was going to see a fellow WWE Hall Of Famer. That’s all." Lawler concluded.
On a related note during a recent interview that Lawler did, he told stories about the negative and positive things that have happened to him throughout his wrestling career. To read that, click here.
