That’s a positive. There are all kinds of physical issues that can give wrestlers trouble throughout their careers, though some of them do not show up until after their career is mostly done. At the same time, there are other problems that can happen which anyone might deal with on a regular basis. That is the case with a wrestling legend, but things are looking up.

Last year, WWE Hall Of Famer Jerry Lawler suffered a stroke, which caused him various issues, including some involving his speech. Lawler recently took part in a virtual autograph signing for East Coast Autograph Auctions and revealed he has undergone knee replacement surgery. Lawler said he was also still having some minor difficulties from the stroke but said “all that stuff is coming around fast.” There is no word on if Lawler, 74, will be able to return to the ring.

Lawler has had quite the career. Check out his time in WWE:

Opinion: That’s great to hear and hopefully Lawler can get everything else he needs taken care of soon. Having his knee replaced is great and should allow him to do a lot more. At the same time, the fact that he is able to do something like a virtual signing should mean a lot of the stroke effects have worn off. Lawler has already had a heck of a career and it will be nice to see him get back to full health going forward.

What is the best part of Lawler’s career? Is he better in the ring or on commentary? Let us know in the comments below.
