Jerry Lawler revealed in an interview with WrestlingInc.com at Starrcast over the weekend that he signed a new two-year contract with WWE last January. He also explained he has pretty much every deal the company has to offer.
“The great thing with the WWE, I’m under the same contract that I’ve been under for twenty-three years. I’m still under an announcing contract, a talent contract, and I even have a legends contract, but I’ve been under the same contract for the last twenty-three years and I re-signed last January for another two years.
“So one more great thing about them: I’ve been there for so long, they still let me do independent shows because I don’t wrestle there since the cardiac arrest,” Jerry continued. “I haven’t wrestled for them anymore but I still do – especially with the FOX Sports thing coming up, SmackDown, I’m probably going to be doing some more stuff. The great thing is that I get to go out and do stuff like this and they never ask me [questions]. They know I’m not going to do anything to embarrass the company; I’m always going to be representing and it’s good.”
