During a commercial break on Monday’s Raw, Jerry Lawler came out in a surprise appearance.
Following Damian Priest’s victory against Sami Zayn in a match, Zayn came back to the stage. Despite his frustration over the loss, Zayn said his mood changed when he saw someone in the back. He then introduced Lawler, to a major reaction from the Memphis crowd.
At the age of 73, Lawler has been battling health challenges over the past few months. In February of this year, he experienced a stroke, marking his second occurrence following a previous one in 2018. Since then, he has been absent from WWE television, except for a recorded segment at the WWE Hall of Fame event.
