Jerry Lawler Compares Michael Cole To Jim Ross, Discusses Working With Andy Kaufman: Is He Deserving Of The WWE Hall Of Fame?

Arda Ocal sent in the second part of his interview with Jerry Lawler. Below are highlights:

-A funny story where Jerry Lawler got sued in Louisiana by a female fan for “spitting” on her, but the real reason comes out in the courtroom.

-Lawler’s relationship with David Letterman today, memories of re-enacting the famous Andy Kaufman slap on the “Late Show” on the movie “Man on the Moon”, and Lawler hoping to be a guest on Letterman on the 30th anniversary of the slap.

-Andy Kaufman deserving to be in the celebrity wing of the WWE Hall of Fame
“I truly believe that’s when wrestling became sports entertainment when we involved this Hollywood actor. Vicne McMahon even told me he was jealous that we got Andy Kaufman to come to Memphis. Andy actually approached Vince Sr. with the idea to wrestle females on his show and he was hesitant. Thats how I got hooked up with Andy, just by a stroke of luck.”

-The interesting differences between working with Michael Cole and working with JR, both on camera and off

-Jerry draws Batman and talks about his current art projects – there is a giveaway for the signed drawing here.
