Jerry Lawler Reveals That He Has Three Contracts With WWE

WWE Hall of Famer Jerry "The King" Lawler has been affiliated with WWE for the greater part of the past 27 years.

Lawler spoke to Wrestling Inc. at Starrcast this past weekend, and revealed that he has had the same contract with WWE since 1996.

"The great thing with the WWE, I'm under the same contract that I've been under for twenty-three years," Lawler explained. "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. 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."

Lawler last appeared on WWE television last month, getting attacked by Bray Wyatt's "Fiend" character. He is advertised for the upcoming SmackDown 20th Anniversary special on Friday, October 4 on FOX, which will be the debut of Friday Night SmackDown on FOX.
