Jerry “The King” Lawler on The Hollywood Reporter’s “80 Greatest Moments in TV History”

WWE Hall of Famer Jerry “The King” Lawler has made The Hollywood Reporter’s “80 Greatest Moments in TV History”:

“30. Andy Kaufman vs. Jerry Lawler on Late Night with David Letterman: Performance art at its finest. You could pick just about any Kaufman ‘hoax’ and appreciate its bracing nerve.”

On Late Night with David Letterman on July 28, 1982, Lawler slapped Kaufman, prompting the comedian to throw coffee on the WWE Hall of Famer. The buzz-worthy incident between the rivals is considered one of the most memorable moments in the show’s history.
