WWE: Jerry Lawler’s Return Date Revealed!

After suffering a life-threatening heart attack during the September 10 edition of RAW, Hall of Famer Jerry “The King” Lawler has been recovering, eagerly awaiting the ‘all clear’ to go back to work as a commentator for Monday Night RAW. Well, “The King” will only have to wait a couple more weeks as it was announced during last night’s RAW that Lawler will be returning to the announce position in two weeks’ time on November 12 in Columbus, OH, just in time for Survivor Series.

Since Jerry Lawler’s heart attack, fellow Hall of Famer and longtime broadcast colleague, Jim Ross, has been filling in for “The King” alongside Michael Cole. John “Bradshaw” Layfield filled in for Lawler at Night of Champions and joined J.R. and Cole for announcing duties the following night on RAW and again two weeks after that before JBL was permanently moved to SmackDown to commentate alongside Josh Mathews. There is a lot of uncertainty regarding Jim Ross’ role once Jerry Lawler returns as some people have suggested that the WWE keep J.R. on as an announcer and have a three-man booth with J.R., Cole, & Lawler, but the likely scenario will see J.R. go back to NXT as a commentator there.
