WWE Hall of Famer, and current Smackdown commentator Jerry "The King" Lawler recently spoke with my good friend KG Kevin Gill at the annual Stockton Con event that takes place once a year in Stockton, California. He was part of a special panel with the creator of the Headlocked wrestling graphic novel series, Michael Kingston, and did a sit down Q and A session where all sorts of topics were discussed.

Topics covered by Lawler and KG include Andy Kaufman, Lawler's love of art and how he got his break into the wrestling business through this, the Man on the Moon movie and how he almost didn't get cast to play the role of himself, a great Vince McMahon story, and reveals some exclusive news about the next work he is doing for the Headlocked graphic novel. You can listen to the whole interview via Soundcloud below, or by heading over to to hear all the other great interviews with stars of the world of music, video games, and wrestling including WWE Hall of Famers Scott Hall, Sean Waltman, Hacksaw Jim Duggan, current WWE star Kevin Owens, as well as other great names including MVP, Luke "Doc" Gallows, Colt Cabana, Chris Hero, and many many more!
