WWE Hall of Famer Jerry “The King” Lawler recently spoke with Sky Sports to promote his spoken-word tour in the UK in mid-March. During the interview, he was asked which in-ring opponents did he enjoy working with the most. Lawler said that it’s probably Terry Funk as he was such a character and that he was a good friend. He noted that every time that they worked together, it was a dream. He brought having a match with Bruiser Brody and Stan Hansen and contemplated quitting the business once it was over. He enjoyed working with Funk and Nick Bockwinkel.
When asked who he thinks his greatest commentary partner was, Lawler brought up working with Vince McMahon in the beginning as well as a Bobby “The Brain” Heenan, “Macho Man” Randy Savage and Jesse Ventura. “I have literally worked with all of the greats, but I obviously had a long and storied career with Good ‘ol JR, Jim Ross – we had such longevity. It was so easy working with him and I still get a hundred tweets a day saying: “JR and The King were the greatest commentating team ever”. He added that it’s hard to say who the best was but he would probably say Ross.
