Jerry Lawler comments on doing commentary "Its not fun"

Well damn King. If its not fun why you doing it?!!

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.

I mean having to watch 3 hours of Raw Live is not fun for the fans usually either. He is at least paid for it...



Spoiler for Don't be sad it is over, be happy it happened:

Having to do the least organic version of commentary ever must be shit. Having Vince or Kevin Dunn shouting down the mic at you whilst matches take place and having to memorise shitty words you cant say and phrases that will get you in trouble must be worse than getting a brain aneurysm after 3 hours.

He must not enjoy hearing a senile owner yelling in his ear.

I think he means it more along the lines of "this job isn't easy" type of thing. People assume sitting there doing commentary is just guys having fun when they don't realize how much actual work goes into doing that job. It's not easy and it's not just a sit down and have fun type of thing. It's a real job with real work involved.

Apparently Lawler is the one guy who Vince doesn't yell at, because he'll just tell him to fuck off.

Lawler never really wanted to be a commentator. It´s well known that he would rather wrestle, but at some point WWE brass decided he was better as a commentator. Money is money, so he took the job.

He's still getting paid regardless and age has caught up with him. Even though I'd love to see him wrestle and pretty sure he'd love to wrestle but it's too much risk at this point.

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.
