Jerry Lawler Discusses Vince McMahon High Praise For Him, Favorite Wrestlemania Moments

Jim Varsallone of The Miami Herald has a new article online featuring quotes from Jerry Lawler. Below are some notable excerpts:

“Honestly, I’m not trying to blow my own horn, because I feel lucky moreso than anything,” Lawler said, “but [WWE CEO/Chairman] Vince McMahon once told me, ‘I think you’re the most all-around talented guy I’d ever met in this industry.’ Then he explained, ‘You’ve done everything and done everything well. You’ve owned a wrestling company. You started out as a referee. You’ve wrestled. You’ve booked. You’ve done payrolls. You’ve done commentary. You still wrestle.’

“My favorite moments for actually calling the action, there have been so many. One match that I really enjoyed calling was The Rock against Hulk Hogan [WrestleMania 18 in 2002 in Toronto]. That was a match you thought you’d never see. I’d put that like a match between Muhammad Ali and Mike Tyson. It was just something you thought would never happen, and it was a great match. As far as I’m concerned, of the matches I’ve seen, it was probably Hulk Hogan’s best match ever, and The Rock was fabulous in it. So I thought that match was great.

      I agree. Hogan spent his entire career trying to work opponents that wouldnt outshine him.

    People never Give Hulk the credit he deserves as an actual wrestler YEs he only needed to Hulk up 3 punches big boot leg drop and done BUT that was not his fault he was trained by a Submission master in Florida who Broke Hulk's leg the first time he saw Hulk just to see what he had in him. If u ever lok at some of his matches in Japan he does good chain wrestling with Armbar SUbmissions
