I didn’t post any news over the weekend or yesterday for Independence Day, so you may have heard already that it looks like WWE has lifted Jerry “The King” Lawler’s suspension. Below is what Pro Wrestling Sheet reported on July 1st:
Jerry Lawler‘s WWE suspension has been lifted … this according to a rep for the company.
WWE tells Pro Wrestling Sheet, “Jerry Lawler’s legal matter has been resolved and his suspension has been lifted, effective immediately.”
Lawler was suspended on June 17th after he and his fiancee were arrested, but all charges stemming from the incident were dropped Friday morning in court.
In his absence, David Otunga had been filling the color commentary spot … however, we’re told Jerry will immediately return to SmackDown starting next week to resume his role.
