MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - WWE Hall of Fame wrestler Jerry Lawler said he’s getting strong backlash – even death threats – after he was spotted at President Trump’s rally in Southaven earlier this week.
Lawler said he didn't realize he was sitting in such a prominent spot at the rally until he started getting the hate mail.
He said he and Donald Trump go way back.
"We listened to his speech and apparently we were seen in the crowd on footage on the news,” Lawler said.
Lawler is seen sitting front and center next to Steve Ehrhart, head of the AutoZone Liberty Bowl.
Lawler, who is in New York, spoke with WMC5 by phone. He said someone gave him some tickets to the rally so he, his fiancée and her son went to the rally.
"I wasn’t necessarily going to the rally to see the President,” Lawler said. “I was going to see a fellow WWE Hall of Famer. Donald Trump and I are both in the WWE Hall of Fame.”




That’s right – President Donald Trump was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2013. Lawler said he has known Trump for years.
"I’ve worked with the guy several times in the past at the WWE,” Lawler said. “It goes back years. I interviewed him at Madison Square Garden.”
Trump has even wrestled with head of the WWE, Vince McMahon. Trump’s win was a loss of hair for McMahon.
Lawler said he started getting hate mail after wrestling site Pro Wrestling Sheet showed him at the Trump rally.
Part of Trump’s speech was pro-Brett Kavanagh, and he also mocked Kavanaugh’s accuser Christine Blasey Ford.
Lawler said he was shocked by the hate mail.
"It was maybe 60-40 negative,” Lawler said.






However, Lawler isn’t surprised. He said with the divisiveness in the country, it was kind of guilt by association since he was at the Trump rally.
WMC5 asked Jerry Lawler if he wanted to say whether he supported Trump. He said no, because it will just mean half of the people will be upset.

There's never been a more divisive president in modern times and that's by design. I'm not excusing the fans behavior by any means but you should anticipate that sort of reaction. I'd go as far as putting this down as Lawler just working to get some pub (why, I have no idea).

The more divided we are... The more the Washington lifers can remain in power.

I thought this sounded familiar. It happened 2 years ago too so I’m sure Lawler was just SHOCKED! He’s such a carny he can’t help it.

I like this quote from Lawler about his tweet.



Lawler told Memphis, Tennessee news station (WMC) that the tweet “was not the best idea,” and that he plans to stay out of politics in the future.

The saddest part is that Lawler just buried his son and he's either intentionally trying to get death threats to put him back in the news, or (more likely) he's making them up to get himself back in the news.  How about just sitting at home quietly for a few days to reflect on how your family got where it is?

No one should ever get death threats on this bullshit. However, I never know whether to trust Lawler or not. He is always working.
