Jerry Lawler Talks Macho Man In WWE’s HOF & More

Justin LaBar

Jerry "The King" Lawler did an interview with The Observer News Enterprise and talked about Macho Man Randy Savage and Andy Kaufman needing to be in the WWE Hall of Fame:

QUESTION: You’re a WWE Hall of Famer. Are there two or three names you’d like to see in the Hall of Fame with you?

 They’ve not yet inducted Randy Savage yet, have they? I think probably Randy Savage. I think he will eventually get in there. That is one those things. To me, if you are going to honor somebody, you should do it while they are still alive. I wish that Randy and Vince McMahon could have settled what differences there were before he passed away to get him in because I think Randy was deserving a long time ago.
“I’ll tell you who else I think should be in there — Andy Kaufman. He should be in the celebrity wing of the WWE Hall of Fame. (Mike) Tyson got in this year. You’ve got Mike Tyson and Drew Carey. If Drew Carey is in there, Andy Kaufman should be. He was one of the first guys that put wrestling on a national stage.

Lawler goes on to talk about Kaufman set the bar for celebrities involved in wrestling. He also talks about his likes and dislikes of commentating versus wrestling. Read the full article click here.
