Jerry Lawler speaks on Memphis Radio about running for Mayor

By : WrestlingDotCom News Posted on

WWE RAW announcer Jerry “The King” Lawler said in a radio interview during the Thaddeus Matthews shows in Memphis on July 8th that he would be willing to retire from wrestling if he wins the Memphis mayor position in a special election this fall. Lawler did not stated whether he would quit his current WWE broadcasting position, but did say he is tired of traveling. Lawler said he would give up wrestling independent weekend shows to become mayor.

Lawler did stress he’s not seeking publicity by running for office and being on TV is enough as it is. “I’ve been on Memphis TV for 37 years,” he said. “I’m seen weekly on the number one program on cable (Monday Night Raw) so, no, I don’t need the publicity.”

One of Lawler’s top challenges will be appealing to the predominantly-African-American community, which makes up 62 percent of the city’s demographics. Lawler seemed to win over a sample of listeners, which is aimed at the African-American community.

Lawler said that he would hold meetings all over the city to make sure voices are heard equally “so that citizens Black and White could give him their agendas for their communities.”

Lawler said he’s not taking campaign money or hiring a campaign manager because “that’s what politicians do”, as he stated he doesn’t want to be viewed as a politician.
