Jerry Lawler Comments on Running For Mayor of Memphis

Nick Paglino

jerry We reported yesterday that WWE’s Jerry "The King" Lawler has announced that he may be placing his name in the running for the office of the Mayor of Memphis. In a recent interview with The UK Sun, Lawler had the following to say concerning his possible running for office:

"I am going to do some media interviews and see what level of support is out there before I officially declare.

"The people of Memphis are so tired of the political circus that we have been living in for the past 18 years and hopefully, are tired of politicians in general.

"I would be an alternative to that since I am not a politician and never want to be one.

"Just someone who could bring some common sense to the office of Mayor and hopefully make my hometown of Memphis a city that people want to come to, instead of move away from.

"I will be making an announcement by the end of this week."
