Trivia / Jerry Lawler

  • Actor Allusion: As with most wrestlers turned announcers, things from his career are referred to at times. For example, during the Bret Hart vs. Shawn Michaels match at WrestleMania XII, Lawler asked "How'd he kick out of a piledriver?!" The piledriver, of course, is his finisher.
  • Fan Nickname: His detractors call him the "The Burger King"
  • Money, Dear Boy: Lawler has admitted in a 2011 interview that he hasn't been interested in calling matches for years and the only reason he still does announcing these days is for the paycheck. That hasn't stopped him from crying to Vince and arranging to have Matt Stryker downsized for mocking his ignorance.
  • One of Us: Lawler is a collector of Coca-Cola and Superman merchandise, and owns a replica of the Batmobile from the 1960s Batman series.
