Jerry Lawler Talks Stalker Fans, Possibly Returning To WWE Full Time

On the most recent episode of his podcast, Dinner With The King, Jerry Lawler talked about several topics, including the recently announced decision to broadcast RAW live on Christmas ...

"I would never wrestle on Christmas. That's almost sacrilegious to me. I wouldn't do it."

... as well as his appearance on the RAW commentary desk last week, temporarily replacing Booker T when the Houston native was unable to get to RAW because of Hurricane Harvey. When asked if the company had asked him to come back and work full time, Jerry said:

"Umm, no. But if they did, I missed the call. I was more than happy to come back to fill in for Booker T on Raw when the hurricane kept him from being able to be at the show. But if they were to call me and ask me to come back on a full-time basis, it would be a really, really tough decision to make. If they said I was going to make the same money as I did before, that would go a long way in making me consider going back again."

Lawler also spoke about the recent comments made by Sasha Banks about certain fans who are a bit overzealous in their attempts to meet their favorite wrestlers in public.

"You can't be offended or get mad at them when you accomplished what you set out to do, and that's to be famous. So I think Sasha Banks needs to step back and think about what Bubba Ray Dudley says, because they will be a day when nobody is waiting for an autograph, and you'll wish you were back in the way it is now. But you gotta stop and for just a minute and explain that you will try to come back later or you're trying to eat your pizza while it's hot. You can't just ignore them. If you take a little time and be nice to those fans, that usually works out for the best.

"There are stalkers out there, people who can be dangerous out there. I'm looking at it from my own, male perspective. But Sasha is looking at it from her perspective. I understand both points of view though."
