The Gathering IV takes place on August 3-6 in Charlotte at the Hilton University Place and will feature such stars as Kurt Angle, The Godfather, The Rock & Roll Express, and more. Unfortunately, it will be without one of its featured headliners in WWE Hall of Famer Jerry “The King” Lawler.
The Gathering’s organizer Martin Tmart Damato took to social media to announce the unfortunate news that due to Lawler’s health, he would be unable to attend next month’s event. Posting the following message:
“The Gathering Update — Unfortunately this Update is not good news. After waiting and waiting and holding out hope I was informed today that due to continued health issues Jerry the King Lawler has to cancel.
“Jerry was someone we really wanted to be at the event. We had tried last year but he was already booked to be somewhere else in 2022. I had made it a point to get Jerry Booked very early this year and it was before he got sick. We are very sorry for those that wanted to meet the King. We know he was a major want for alot of people.
“We have to understand that Jerry health comes first and unfortunately he has to pull out and is just unable to travel and do these types of things right now. All of us wish the King a speedy recovery and that eventually he will make his return to what he loves doing.
“Anyone that ordered Autograph or Photo Op tickets for the King you can get a full refund or use it for other items you may want. I’ll be reaching out to you all over the next few days. Im very sorry,” Martin Tmart Damato said on Facebook.
