WWE broadcaster Jerry The King Lawler says he is happy for his son Brian Christopher and talks about Memphis Wrestling coming to WWE Network.
In an exclusive interview with The Roman Show during Florida Supercon at the Miami Beach Convention Center, Lawler said he was satisfied with his son’s return to WWE when Christopher and his former tag team partner Scotty Too Hotty reunited to make an apperance on NXT.
“I was really happy for him. Brian and Scotty are doing quite a few appearance across the country,” the WWE Hall of Famer said. “So much wrestling going on independently around the country. They are busy every single week. He’s not on WWE TV. He’s available all the time. They might bring him back. Who knows?”
Lawler also said those involved with WWE Network met with him to review film from Memphis Wrestling, which he was an integral part. He says it could just be a matter of time till Memphis Wrestling could be on WWE Network.
“They sent a crew to Memphis to see what is usable,” he said. “We produced a 90-minute wrestling show for 21 straight years. There’s a lot of footage. Hopefully, we’ll have it on WWE Network. Memphis Wrestling, so many of the stars of WWE started or came through there.”
Lawler also discussed his heart condition, how he currently feels, thankful for prayers, and experiences wrestling in Florida.
