Lawler spoke with the Commercial Appeal about his 50 years in the industry and admitted that he can take the moniker of King for granted.
"To me, it's just a nickname," said Lawler, when discussing the moniker that has been royally overutilized in wrestling, but always goes back to Lawler. "Especially in the wrestling business, everybody just says, 'Hey, King,'" Lawler said. "I just take it for granted."
