    Jerry Lawler and his fiancee Lauryn McBride were arrested early Friday morning after the two were involved in a violent confrontation at Lawler’s home on St. Nick Dr. in East Memphis. The 66-year-old Lawler and the 27-year-old McBride were both booked into the Shelby County Jail around 1 a.m. Friday.

    McBride claims Lawler struck her in the head and pushed her against a stove while Lawler claims McBride scratched him in the face, threw a candle at him and kicked him in the groin. McBride also alleged that Lawler got an unloaded pistol, put it on the kitchen counter and told her to kill herself.

    Lawler says McBride was intoxicated and claims McBride is the one who brought the pistol into the kitchen.

    WWE has since commented on the situation, stating that Lawler is suspended indefinitely due to the arrest. Their statement is below:

    Jerry Lawler was arrested at his home Friday morning by the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office in Memphis, Tenn.

    According to a police report, Lawler and his girlfriend, Lauryn McBride, were taken into custody and booked on alleged charges of domestic assault—bodily harm, a misdemeanor.

    WWE has zero tolerance for matters involving domestic violence, and per our policy, Jerry Lawler has been suspended indefinitely following his arrest.

  6. of course it will be.. it dosent affect anything lmao
  7. well when chris benoit died they didn't menton him
  8. Chris Benoit killed his son and wife, Jerry got suspended you melt.
  9. so they will never talk about him so now who will replace jerry in commentary please not michael cole
  10. explain how they will never talk about him? he is suspended, not fired/released, all that will happen is they will find someone for the kickoff show and Smackdown. thats all, until his suspension is complete. if you are really comparing Chris Benoit killing his family then himself to a argument between Lawler and his wife, then you must be really really stupid.
  11. Jerry is a legend. He takes no shit from women, young or old.

  15. NXT? Ehh, not quite sure about that, but I think when he returns, he'll probably be doing stuff on the kick-off and eventually get back to being a commentator on SD.

    We'll see, though.
  16. Lawler is a great fit for a developmental brand, seeing as he's been in the business since 1970.

  17. Well he has history with younger women though. 39 is quite a gap, creepy. She is most likely in it for the money
    • Agree Agree x 1
  18. No surprise that a man well in his 60's who goes after women damn near half a century younger than himself abuses said women. Then again what woman her age would be interested in Jerry Lawler?...has to be the daddy issues. I digress, curious to see how WWE will treat him post-suspension.

    On the Bright side Smackdown is going to have the better commentary going into the brand split now,eh? #Gravesforsmackdown
  19. Not being funny but it's probably the best thing that could have happened for Smackdown...

  20. We need to see if she was tested for alcohol due to what Jerry said. If she was intoxicated, that can play a major factor in who is most likely telling the truth.

    You need to chill.
