Dutch Mantell Claims Jerry Lawler Recently Suffered Another 'Minor' Stroke

Lawler's wrestling and announcing days may be over.

Jerry Lawler has been on the mend since suffering a major stroke in February 2023. 

According to Dutch Mantell, The King may have recently suffered another 'minor' stroke. Addressing the 74-year-old's health during a recent edition of his Story Time with Dutch Mantell podcast, he said: 

"I heard he had another one, a minor one, but he did have another one within the last two or three weeks, I heard, or it may have been a month. But there must have been not a lot to it". 

WWE opted against renewing Lawler's talent broadcast contract at the beginning of the year, effectively ending his decades-long tenure with the company. However, the WWE Hall of Famer is still signed to a WWE Legends deal. 

Lawler being signed to a WWE Legends deal may prevent him from announcing for other organisations. According to a report from Fightful Select, the odds of Jerry showing up elsewhere, such as reforming his famed partnership with Jim Ross in AEW, are slim. 

The report noted that Lawler still experiences difficulties due to the effects of the stroke he suffered last year. Furthermore, he doesn't watch much wrestling these days and has probably wrestled his last match. 

Lawler himself has admitted that calling a match would be an 'extremely difficult' to do.
