WWE Hall of Famer Jerry "The King" Lawler recently did an interview with commercialappeal.com and here are the highlights...
Taking bumps in the ring: "Your body just gets used to taking that certain specific abuse. I wrestled on such a regular basis for 20 years, probably six or seven nights a week, and every night I would get picked up and body-slammed. And then maybe on your night off you'd go bowling and the next morning wake up and say, 'Oh my God, I'm so sore.'"
His lifestyle: "I never worked out a day in my life. Iíve never in my life even tasted one sip of beer, wine, whisky or any type of alcohol. Or coffee."
People that say wrestling is fake: "For years, people would come to me and say, 'I don't watch wrestling, it's all fake. And I'd say, 'Oh, do you watch movies?' 'Uh, yeah.' 'So when Tom Cruise gets shot, he's really dead, right?'"
