That's correct. That's definitely what he meant.

People have to remember that Lawler's been commentating on wrestling matches for an incredibly long time, and for most of that time, there wasn't someone yelling in his ear telling him what to say and reminding him that he'll be sacked if he says the word "hospital."

I love to cook and I'm excellent at it, but if I had someone screaming in my face about exactly how to do things at every step of the process, it'd be much less fun for me and I probably wouldn't be nearly as good.
You know it kills jokes when you explain then

Re: Jerry Lawler comments on doing commentary "Its not fun"

honestly it's tough for him. His whole gimmick was making inappropriate comments and being the heel between him and JR.

Coreys the heel and its PG era so i imagine he doesn't find it fun because he can't be himself.

Don’t meddle.

People making jokes at raw being shit. Tbf what you said is obviously what he meant. Just funnier to pretend he is shitting on it. It sounds like he agreed to do it cause vince asked him and they wanted an experienced name

Jerry Lawler was on his own podcast with a co host and the topic of his recent job of being on Raw commentary came up.

If you want to read all he had to say on it ill post the link but the ultimate take away from this was to JL he said its not fun. There's a lot of preparation and lots of pressure on you.

Makes me wonder why he took the job then.

I for one for the most part enjoy the new three man team but if Jerry's not enjoying what he's doing perhaps take a role backstage.

They call it work because they pay you for it.

If it was fun, everybody would do it for free.

Maybe the cuckolding hits a bit too close to home for Jerry.

Re: Jerry Lawler comments on doing commentary "Its not fun"

To a business standpoint, I have to agree with Lawler. Vince's yelling at his ear cause he wants him to be dead-on on what's going on in and outside the ring. And you all know damn well Vince don't like fuck ups.

I said DICE those onions you idiot!

"You know I'm automatically attracted to beautiful — I just start kissing them. It's like a magnet. Just kiss. I don't even wait."

"I backed him. You can see how loyal he is. He was begging for my endorsement. I could have said, 'Mitt, drop to your knees.' He would have dropped to his knees."

"You oughta see this guy - 'uh, I don't know what I said, uh, I don't remember,'"

“I will build a great wall – and nobody builds walls better than me, believe me – and I’ll build them very inexpensively. I will build a great, great wall on our southern border, and I will make Mexico pay for that wall. Mark my words.”

Nah if they wanted to hit home they'd make jokes about dirty old men with barely legals.
