Lawler Says He Will Continue To Wrestle Despite Needing Operation

On a recent episode of his Dinner With The King Podcast, WWE Hall Of Famer Jerry “The King” Lawler revealed that will be needing a double knee replacement operation.
Lawler also said that he will not be pushing through with the surgery because he still plans to continue wrestling, but he is still undergoing other treatments to help with the constant pain.
Lawler would then talk about receiving the bad news during his most recent visit to his orthopedic surgeon. It was originally thought that Lawler could undergo arthroscopic surgery to give him some relief but when he underwent an MRI & x-rays, it was revealed that he has “bone on bone” and needs to have the replacement surgery on both knees, as seen below:
“They’re not gone, you can still do whatever you want to do,” Lawler said of his knees. “You can still do whatever you want to do, it’s just very painful. There’s a lot of pain and the fact that your knee joints are bone on bone, instead of having cartilage or whatever that stuff is, that is supposed to cushion between your upper bone and your lower bone.”
Lawler then said that he will continue to wrestle and get shots to help with the pain. He joked, “I’m just going to suffer through it.”
