theScore's Arda Ocal (@arda_ocal) sat down with WWE Commentator Jerry "The King" Lawler (kingjerrylawler.com). Highlihts:

How his illustrations gave him his break in pro wrestling:

I sent the pictures into the TV station that aired the wrestling shows and lo and behold they showed my pictures on TV that week and they called me up for a job you know how in a courtroom you see an artist drawing people on the stand, well I became a ringside artist for the wrestlers in the ring

Never having a major injury, especially to his knees, despite never wearing kneepads and performing a second rope fist drop which lands him on his knees almost every match:

Im so fortunate do have had a great career doing something that I loved so much I would have payed promoters in the beginning to let me wrestle. Never having an injury is pure luck. We see so many young guys come in and within 6 months of their career they get some sort of career threatening injury, it can happen anytime and Ive been fortunate to avoid those.

Never having a sip of alcohol, never smoking or doing drugs and did he ever feel pressure to do so being in an entertainment business

Having an extensive Coca Cola memorabilia collection in his house

How much interest Jerry Lawler has in competing in the ring today vs doing commentary (a surprising answer, especially how often he has matches today)
