Source: PWInsiderWWE officials are hoping that Jerry Lawler will be back on RAW within a month to six weeks. At the same time, they want him to do what he needs to do to get healthy, that is what's most important right now. Lawler will not be appearing on RAW in person next week as the interview will be done via satellite from his home in Memphis.
As seen on Monday's RAW, WWE aired footage of Lawler being reunited with Dr. Sampson in Memphis after flying back from Montreal. According to PWInsider, the entire scene was directed by Vince McMahon. Vince was there as he left Monday's RAW in Connecticut in the afternoon and flew on the WWE jet to pick Lawler up in Montreal. After the scene was filmed at the airport, Vince and Dr. Sampson flew back to RAW in Connecticut. Regardless of what they say about Vince, it says a lot when the head of a company takes off on their busiest day of the week to pick you up from the hospital and bring you home.
On a related note, Vince came up with the "Long Live The King" t-shirt that WWE is now selling, the same one Michael Cole wore on Monday's RAW.
