Default Finally got to talk with Lawler this weekend!!!

I think most of the guys who post on the classic section know I am a Lawler mark from way back.

I have met dozens of wrestlers over the years and met Lawler from time to time but meeting a guy and actually sitting down and talking are completely different. I never really got to talk to my childhood hero, to ask him questions, to just pick his brain, but this past Saturday I did.

I asked him several questions of which I always wondered and sat back and just listened to him talk about Kaufman, Austin Idol, Sid Vicious, and others.

Needless to say I was stoked. He was very gracious and just a great guy....(cue a Sword of Justice's pedophile response)

The thing that interested me the most was just sitting down and asking him about his relationship with Paul Heyman. I am not sure why but I just was curious about what the true nature of their relationship was. He said they were actually friends and that Paul E was a great guy, confirming my theory that anyone who believes "shoot" interviews are falling for the new art of the work. Lawler has been selling his whole life, and he's still one of the best.



Anyways, it was a good day, just wanted to share.

He's saying some moron is going to run in at some point as say that Lawler's near death experience was for show.

Thanks for sharing and congratulations! That is something that you will cherish for the rest of your life.

I wish I could have sat down with Buddy Rogers like that. Unfortunately, the closest I ever got to him was a few rows away as he entered the ring to fight Cowboy Bob Ellis at MSG.

I'm really happy for you! How did you actually get the opportunity to meet and sit down and talk to Lawler?

- Mike

Lawler seems like a genuinely great guy and in his prime was one hell of a worker. Back in the days of territories, Lawler was massive in Memphis. Still to this day, the whole Lawler/Kaufman feud is one of my favourites.

Did you ask him why is he is a boring mundane face when he is arguably one of the best heels of all time?

It is fantastic you got to meet someone you have wanted to for so long! I have wanted to meet him as well, but have not had that chance. Your thread is probably going to be (or already started to be) bombed with trolls because of the unpopularity of Lawler's on screen character at the moment, people who feel the need to shit on someones' life experience to draw attention to themselves. but don't let it take away from your moment!

Get any good autographs or swag?

Because that is what Vince asks of him. I don't know why people can't process this information.
