WWE Hall of Famer Jerry "The King" Lawler recently appeared as a guest on an episode of ON with Mario Lopez, where he was asked by Lopez what the key is in his long 50-year wrestling career. King says it is never tasting beer, wine, whiskey, or any other type of alcohol in his entire life and never doing any drugs and smoking. King also said it is due to him never going to the gym and working out.
Lawler said, “I think probably the thing that helps with my longevity is, and I may be the only wrestler can say this, I’ve never in my life even tasted beer, wine, whiskey. Any type of alcohol.”“Never drank, never did any drugs, never smoked. So I think that’s kind of helped me."
“Other than that, honestly, I’ve never worked out a day in my life. Never gone to a gym, never worked out, never lifted, nothing. I felt that wrestling on a daily business for all those years kind of was enough of a workout for me."
“It’s no big secret but that’s how I’ve lasted this long. And been incredibly lucky too to not have had any major injuries.”
Mario Lopez then revealed to Jerry "The King" Lawler that he has been asked to compete in a wrestling match and is strongly considering it, but he was scarce on the details. Lopez then asked Jerry Lawler for advice on what he should do, to which Lawler said he should go for it.
Lawler said, “I would say go for it.” “If it’s something, if it’s been sort of a bucket list or life long dream to get in the ring and do something with the WWE superstars, I’d say go for it."
“Trust me, they love interaction with superstars like yourself. They would welcome you with open arms and treat you graciously, work out with you and get you ready.”
