AuburnPub.com recently spoke with WWE Hall of Famer Jerry Lawler to promote Northeast Wrestling's "Prison City Slam" event on Friday night in Auburn, NY. The full interview is at this link. Below are highlights:
Why he still enjoys working indies:
"With WWE, it's such a big operation. Most of our shows, it's just impossible to have that kind of close interaction with thousands of fans at a show. I really enjoy doing the smaller shows. I do these at least once or twice a week still."
The current WWE roster:
"The company is in good hands because there's so many young, good superstars out there who are on the rise. I don't have any doubt that there's going to be some major stars developing over the next few years."
"I honestly feel that the success that I've enjoyed was just something that happened to me. I never even think about how I'll be remembered or if I'll be remembered."
Lawler also discussed being a color commentator, how he's doing after the car wreck and more in the full interview.
