Jerry, “The King” Lawler, is a living legend in the world of professional wrestling! Since 1970, Jerry has headlined main events worldwide for Memphis Wrestling, WWF, WWE, NWA, AWA, World Class Championship Wrestling, United States Wrestling Association, and Smoky Mountain Wrestling. He has held 168 wrestling championship titles in his career and has done work acting in film, drawing comic books, as a commercial artist, musician, and businessman. He is the cover artist for Headlocked, the hit independent wrestling comic book.
Before joining WWE in 1992 (then known as the World Wrestling Federation), he wrestled in numerous territories, winning multiple championships, including many world championships, throughout his career. Lawler is a one-time AWA World Heavyweight Champion and a three-time WCWA World Heavyweight Champion. He unified the titles by defeating Kerry Von Erich at Superclash III, forming the USWA Unified World Heavyweight Championship, which he held 28 times. Lawler has held more recognized championships than any professional wrestler in history. However, he has never won any titles in WWE, having wrestled sporadically while primarily providing color commentary since joining the company. In 2007, Lawler was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame.
