He is a semi-retired professional wrestler and color commentator who is best known for his work as a commentator for World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE). He had more championships than any other current WWE wrestler before to becoming a commentator. His varied escapades have contributed to his current net worth.

Jerry Lawler has a net worth of $7 million dollars

Lawler worked as a disc jockey before entering the wrestling business, and his skills drew the notice of a local promoter. Jerry was offered free wrestling instruction as part of an arrangement, and he debuted as a wrestler in 1970. He won his first championship a year later, then went on to win the Tag Team Championship with partner Jim Wight, as well as a feud with mentor Jackie Fargo. He proceeded to build a name for himself and win tournaments until a fractured leg in 1980 put an end to his career. Shortly after his recovery, he returned to the ring and began a protracted feud with Andy Kaufman. The feud was keenly watched, only to find out later that the two were actually excellent friends and that everything had been manufactured. Lawler wrestled until the early 1990s, identifying to himself as “The King” and wearing his gimmick of a crown and cape.

While wrestling, his voice was noticed, and he quickly signed with the WWF to work as a color commentator. Jerry was not only an announcer at this time, but he was also involved in several feuds, most notably with Bret Hart and afterwards with Vince McMahon. After that, Lawler wouldn’t have any more legal issues, so it would be a while before he had another conflict. He returned soon after to face Bret Hart, which led to the 1995 King of the Ring “Kiss My Foot” bout, which Lawler lost. His net worth, of course, increased steadily.

Jerry returned to Wrestlemania X for the first time as a major event commentator after his legal concerns were resolved. He mocked “Rowdy” Roddy Piper, which led to the two of them fighting in the King of the Ring. Lawler wrestled for Smoky Mountain Wrestling (SMW) in 1994 while while working as a color commentator for the WWF. After that, he got significantly involved in the feud between the WWF and the Extreme Championship Wrestling (ECW). By 1998, Vince McMahon had stepped down as a commentator, giving way to Jerry “The King” Lawler and Jim Ross’ famed collaboration. Lawler left the WWF in 2001 to protest the termination of his wife, Stacy Carter, and went on to wrestle independently.

Later in 2001, he returned to WWF, where he worked as a color commentator and occasionally appeared in the show’s storylines. He was a part of legendary feuds and was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2007. Lawler’s on-air heart attack after a match with Randy Orton and CM Punk against CM Punk and Dolph Ziggler was one of the most terrifying occurrences of his career. He is currently a main event and Smackdown announcer for WWE.

He has been married three times in his personal life. His first marriage, from 1971 through 1978, was to Kay, with whom he had two children, one of whom became a wrestler. Paula was his second wife, and they were married from 1982 till 1991. Stacy “The Kat” Carter was his third wife (2000-03). Lawler is also a recognized Superman and Coca-Cola item collector.
